Cold remedies

Raise your hand if you're sick right now.

*raises hand*

*looks around*

Oh wait, I'm the only one? Haha.

I've finally caught the cold that's been traveling around the house for the last week. I've been coughing since yesterday and it feels like someone shoved a cotton ball up into my sinuses. GROSS. I'm so glad I'm done with summer classes - can't imagine having to study feeling like this!
Thankfully, I remembered an old remedy an elementary school teacher of mine recommended to my mom way back when: hot lemonade with honey! It works and it's very easy to make.

What you need:
1/2 lemon (or, if your sore throat/cough is really bad, use the whole lemon. I may or may not have done this yesterday. Haha.)
Water
Honey
Microwave

Squeeze the juice out of the lemon into a mug. Add water. I normally fill the mug halfway with water, but you can use more or less, doesn't matter. Microwave for 20-30 seconds, or until hot. Add honey to taste. Drink.

It's not a cure-all, but it will definitely help soothe a sore throat.

I'll pick up Dealing With Drama again as soon as I feel better!!

    If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

    Exciting things going on around here!
