Cold Germs you are not Welcome here!

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Last weekend my husbands good friend texted him. He said he had been in bed all day with a horrible cold. Great. Just days before we had all gone out to dinner together. And hugged Hello hugged Good-bye.

The friend was well enough to play Golf on Monday with my husband. My husband did refer to him as Typhoid Rob but said he "Typhoid Rob seemed to be better".

On Tuesday I spoke to one of my good friends. Lisa. She sounded just horrible. Horrible! I offered to shop for her. She said "I'm good..I have chicken soup". I reminded my self that you can't catch a cold through the phone.

My husband always likes to say ..."I don't get sick very often". I remind him we don't have children living with us. He doesn't go to an office any more. It's not that he's super human..he just isn't exposed to the germs as often...or is he?

Yesterday my husband got sick. He actually even went up to bed. Didn't eat dinner..did eat chicken soup..ginger ale...cough drops.He still feels bad today. Last night I remembered that I have the recipe for a home made cough concoction. During the last year, anytime I feel like I am catching something, I make this recipe. If you are interested google ..apple cider vinegar, honey, cayenne, ginger and water. My husband is not a fan of spicy hot so he won't try any.
I however have been doing shots ( shot glasses) of it. I feel pretty good. Also, in bed last night, every time he would cough I would create an invisible force field that prevented germs from entering me (I hope it works!).
I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

I did go up and get the latest attic jeans. They are size 6. I can pull them all the way up but they are no where close to zipping...far.. far... away..faaaarrrr. from zipping. It would'nt be much of a challenge if they could be zipped..right?

Hopefully I will be sparking tomorrow..oops..need to be positive ( I'm SURE the force field thing is going to work!)..Stay warm and germ free my fellow Sparkies.
