I'm first...

Holy Gorgonzola, Mario, do I have monster of a cold.

It all started with my grand baby getting dropped off on a school day because he had a temperature. Kids seem to just breeze through these things, but us old people...my chest feels it like has ground glass in it, I have been using flannel sweat pants (they are so soft) to blow my nose into because it is so red and tender, my head is pounding with or without Advil, and  yes, I do look stupid with my mouth hanging open all the time because I can't breath through my nose.

In case you were wondering, yes this IS me... the mustache? It happens!

You may be saying..."tree hugger, take some medicine". Well, well wisher... I did compromise my earth mother standards and took some pills. NO WORKEE. Poor me, in pain, stuffy, and dosed up.

We have gummy vit C for the grand babies and provides some immediate temporary relief for me too...massive amounts of tea and honey have been wonderful nurses. Instant but temporary.

Here's a really good article to prevent the onslaught...(great, I find it now). But I am sharing it, totally wonderful ideas to help keep the wolves at bay.
Bottom line:Prevention is the key. Our experts all say a flu shot is essential and they advise staying in the best possible health year-round. “Do the basics -- eat right, sleep right, exercise, and wash your hands,” Richter says. “I work in a pretty high-risk profession, and I rarely get sick because I do those things.”

There sure are millions of exotic herbs online to experiment with, but I am sick now! I find it hard to focus, I really don't want to drive. I have some lovely plain black tea, and some homegrown honey, it still has the wax particles in the honey, they float on top of the tea....and I have Cinnamon on hand.

Hubby is sick too... I expect grand baby number 2 will walk in today with the same misery. I'll covet your prayers!
