big bad bug

My little sore throat last Friday turned out to be a big, bad, misery loving virus that sucked all of the energy right out of me. One week later, I'm finally returning to normal.

So exactly how does a sick girl deal with something like that?

It requires multiple movies and seasons of Big Bang Theory, a cozy blanket, and the dress attire is strictly pajamas only. Carmex also stopped by for the chapped lips that decided to make an unwanted cameo.

If you find yourself in my situation, here's a couple of tips. One, gargling salt water totally helps with a swollen throat. Two, don't skimp on the liquids.

I was crying tears the size of Texas just trying to swallow my medicine. It hurt. A lot. So much so that I avoided drinking anything else and as a result, became dehydrated before I finally bucked up and sipped the water. Don't skimp on the liquids.

Better yet, drink your liquids now and always wash your hands. Stay well friends.

  1. haha, that's basically a description of my night every night! but yes, it's also good stuff to combat sickness. my husband makes me a little nest on the couch with the bedroom blankets so i can watch tv - have you tried that? you get that lovely snug feeling.


Thank you so much for taking time out to comment on my blog!
