UGH- SICKNESS.


I'm here preparing for our Extreme Week camp for next week.  If you have kids going into 1st-5th grade- sign them up.  It's totally FREE and it is going to Rock.  See my previous post about time, dates, and location. 
With that said, I just wanted to talk about being sick.  It sucks!  I got another Nasty cold.  It began on sunday when we were vacuuming our room and tearing the tiles in our shower. [we are remolding due to nasty mold and crap]  Well, I think I'm allergic to dust- who isn't- and I woke up the next day with a horrible sore throat and now i can't stop coughing, blowing my nose, and feeling all achey.  
So out of curiosity, what do you guys do when you get sick?  What special techniques, products, or Mama remedies do you guys use when sick?  Let me know here and send a little prayer of healing for me.  :)   Thanks!

sorry you feel sick! the trick for me when i'm congested and have a soar throat is to take 2 or 3 cough drops (preferably with menthol)... and drop 'em in a pot of slow-boiling water! don't remove it from the heat. once it's steamy, i just hold my face a few inches or a foot over that (like a little ghetto ricola facial!) and voila- i'm breathing in no time! it helps if you can catch all the vapors by draping a towel over your head and the pot so it doesn't all get away :) try it. it works.

for the throat try ginger tea. slice of fresh ginger, spoon of honey (or more if you like it sweet) and about a Tablespoon of lemon. Pour hot water let it steep a few mintues and sip. ginger good for nose, honey good for throat, lemon is your vitamen C. it's good and good for you! hope you feel better.

Logans said...

one more thing - best to crush slice of ginger to release juices. sorry forgot that.
