Feelin' Buggy

I seem to have caught a small bug. At first I wanted to chalk it up to allergies, but alas, no. I have a basic cold: congestion and sore throat.

It isn't too big of a deal, so long as I monitor my fluid intake over the next day. I started feeling that achy feel yesterday morning, but I just figured I was sleepy. But this morning I woke up with a really sore throat and I knew that I must've been draining (and snoring, sorry Don!) last night. He too has a bit of congestion and poor little Mari has been fighting it for a few days. No fever for any of us, just having to walk around sneezing and blowing our noses.

I'm thinking positively, though and I know this will somehow vanish when we leave the time zone, so by the time I land in NY, my super duper immune system will kick into high gear and I'll be good to go.

So other thank chicken soup, what are some quick fix home remedies to nip this thing in the bud?

Oh and a prayer for my mom. She's not been feeling so hot. Her RA is in full force and she's having issues with the insurance company. (Don't even get me started on that one!) She's adamant about continuing her plans to come to NY, so I hope she can remain mostly pain free and have a good time. All the more reason to really focus my efforts and be there. Her sacrifices continue to amaze me!

I'm fighting the same thing.
Hot steamy showers, hot tea with honey, vicks vapor rub, and lots of vitamin C.
I haven't been great with taking care of myself. I've been drinking hot tea and acv. But I haven't been taking lots of Vitamin C like I should be right now with this stuff. However, you are running a marathon tomorrow!!! So, go buy some of those "Emergence-C" (sp?) powder things and pack them with you.
Good luck tomorrow!!!! You will do awesome!!! I hope you feel better.
