still have a cold

I can't believe we still have colds here!!! I mean the stuffy head, irritating throat, a burning all the way down to your stomach cough! and tickle and cough and red eyes and achy skin and tired eyes and head aches and pain behind the eyeballs and have I mentioned the tickle with every breath and swallow that makes you cough and cough and cough, even when there is nothing there to cough, just this stupid tickle.
And a tongue so numb from cough drops that you can't taste anything. And head fog where you just can't "thing crearly"

ok folks we are 11 days into this monster. Mr. Produce even went to the Doctor (he never goes to the Dr.) and they didn't give him anything but eye drops and a decongestant! and the money we've spent on cough medicine and cough drops and cloriseptic spray and Tylenol cold tablets and Kleenex.
And no sleeping because of the coughing (that would be Mr. Produces coughing).

One bright spot is something my blog friend Sue mentioned. Good Earth Caffeine Free Sweet & Spicy Herbal Tea.
I normally don't like tea. (well Chi with milk is a different story) but a tea bag in water tastes like warm dirt. When I have a cold I will use a "zinger" because that actually has some taste, and maybe throw in some honey.
BUT .... with the sweet & spicy, ummmmmmm
soothing - tasty - warm and calming to the throat - sweet & spicy - LOVE that Cinnamon.

Thanks Sue!

You're welcome! I'm so glad you're enjoying the tea. It makes me feel much better to drink something warm when my throat is irritated.


PS. Get well soon. Did you guys have the flu? Kinda sound like it!

Goodness! That's a long time to be sick! I hope you all feel better soon and the tea sounds yummy! I can only drink tea when I'm sick (normally I'm a coffee drinker but that tastes so yucky when I'm sick).
