"C" is for Crude

The common cold! My favorite word for it is "crude"! My hubby has been fighting a head cold all week long! As much as I tried to steer clear of him I knew I would get sick too! But I have to go bigger! I have to get a sinus infection! Ugh! The best perk working for an ENT doctor is the fact that I can see him for a quick minute, he is excellent at diagnosing the problem! I have an antibiotic and hopefully it will kick in! Then I will start to feel better.
Some google images so we don't scare you with our ailments! You might be scared if you saw us! we look like pale, sad people with coughs and drippy noses. Congestion! Ears that are painful and full of negative pressure!
This is a cartoon image of us. The cat does try to nestle all snug on your head! There is no cuddling but lots of complaining when you are sick! Here are somethings to help you feel better:
Chicken soup, that Jewish grandmother was right! It is a cure all!

Tea time! My mother use to give us hot tea, plain old fashioned Lipton tea bags in a cup with a spoonful of honey! Lemon too! Any extra vitamins are going to help comfort you during cold.season!
I should look this cute when I am under the weather! The crude discriminates against no one! It makes anyone in it's path ill! So take some precautions and try to stay healthy! Drink lots of water to stay hydrated. Take extra vitamins including Vitamin C and Zinc. Keep lozenges at your bedside and in your purse. They help take the edge off sore throat pain, dryness and cough! If you haven't had your flu shot, please get one! They really do work and even if you get the flu, it will not last long at all!
Finally get plenty of rest. Then stop by Ms. Jenny's and visit all the really cool "C" participates!
