    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hope everyone had a great holiday. Ours was not as expected.
    I am still coughing away (it is driving me bonkers) but off to work. Probably will have to shut my office door as not to disturb everyone all morning.
    We have a snow shower coming through this morning. The boys are so excited planning their sledding , snowballs ... (It will not be that much but fun to listen to them.)
    Have a great week everyone!

    Happy week to you too! Snow - that sounds so fun - my girls have never seen it. There's a groupon for some place up north where you can get innertubes and slide down a hill. Husband is excited but I'm thinking of all the gear we'll need to find/borrow. My girls don't even have gloves, much less waterproof anything. Can't wait to hear about your boys in the snow!

    Sorry you're still coughing - hope you're feeling well otherwise!

    Both girls whining up a storm this morning claiming various illnesses and injuries. A week w/out school - they realized how awesome it is!

    Sorry you still aren't feeling well! Don't let it go too long before seeing a doc, though. You don't want it to turn worse.

    Emily is home sick today. She'll likely be just fine for school tomorrow. But for today, I'm stuck playing around on the computer, looking for good Cyber Monday deals. Darn...

    Happy Monday! Back to a full week of work.

    I feel your pain about coughing. It's been a week with my cough and no sign of letting up. I'm just taking over the counter cold medicine. My voice is very croaky and sometimes disappears totally in mid-sentence.

    It felt like snow this morning, couple degrees cooler and we might've had some flurries. DS has been talking about snow and maybe we'll get some again this winter. Last winter we had a lot and they loved it. It's hit or miss in this area.
