Cold, congestion, sinus pain 1 week. Now better, but 2nd bout of it in 2 months. Got better without meds both times. Normal to get viruses so often?

In brief: Yes

Particularly this time of year. However, it is not unreasonable to explore potential causes of chronic rhinitis (allergy, irritant exposure, nasal polyps etc) which can cause you to be prone to worsened symptoms with an acute viral infection.
