Don't worry, I'll live

Well, it’s official- I’m sick. Not “curl up & want to die” sick- just “stuffy head, fever, want to take a nap” sick. I went in to work for about 2 hours to do what was absolutely necessary, check in with my boss (who is leaving on vacation tonight) & give her the sweater we(I) made for her grandbaby. I’m now back at home, much to the delight of my cats; they are always so sad when we leave & love having someone home to play with or sleep on. I’m baking 3 chocolate chip cookies (I love Nestle’s Scoop & Bake dough- you can make as many as you want & store the rest) to have with my Lemon/Ginger tea & Nyquil, then I’m crawling into bed for a long nap.

Shall we drink tea, and nap together? I'm down with a nasty cold, too. Sigh. It has to be over sometime, right?

As my kids would say, "It's not FAIR" that you're sick. Although I must applaud your cookie prescription.

Add some Emergen-C to your day. It's a little fizzy powder that you can get at Walgreens or the like. I take it three times a day when I am sick, and I realy think it helps. My other remedy is onion and garlic soup. It doesn't taste great, but it scares the snot right out of you.
Boil a chopped potatoe in chicken broth.
Add an entire onion (a big one)
Add as much garlic as you can stand.
Add some carrots if you want or any other ingredients to taste, but this is mainly a garlic and onion soup.
