Well, friends, it's finally happened: The first cold of the season has snuck up on me. I got a sore throat on Tuesday (seriously, it felt like my throat was on fire!!!), and by yesterday afternoon, my head was pounding and my nose was all stuffy. Ack! Needless to say, it hasn't been a very fun week, but my sweet mother is bringing me a vanilla milkshake to soothe my throat; she certainly does know the way to my heart. So, I've been doing all the usual things -- like drinking lots of fluids and getting lots of sleep -- in an effort to rid my body of these germs as quickly as possible.
What other tips do you have, friends? A special tea you swear by? A chicken soup recipe passed down from your grandmother? A favorite movie that lifts your spirits? I'd love to hear!! xoxo
