Gee, Nola...thanks...Snotty. Ya. The truth. It hurts! Here's a description of our house:
hack, hack, hack, sneeeeezzeeeee, hack, whine, whine, whine, sneeeeeeezzzzeeeeeee, medicate, sleep, whine, hack, hack, hack. Are you jealous yet?! Did I mention that we have a big family? And we all have it. Yup. All 8 of us. Good times. Gooooodddd times! Fortunately, it's on the way out, but it's been a long week. Very, very long!
What do you do to help the flu? Do you vaccinate? Are you herbal? OTC? We don't vaccinate. We use herbal, if you count Vicks vapor rub as herbal. We eat Dayquil like it's going out of style. We drink soda for the bubbles on our throats. We've had every type of chicken soup/broth/dumplings known to man. Hot showers. Cough drops. Heating pads. Puffs tissues infused with Vicks (greatest tissue invention ever!). What works the best? Whining. Seriously. Nothing makes you feel better than whining. Try it with me...I'm siiiiccckkkkkkkk!!!!!!!! See? Better. A little anyway!
The dogs are enjoying it, however. There's always somebody laying in a bed or on the couch to cuddle up with. The toddler has a snotty nose. Mmmmm....treats....
Stay well, Blogville! And remember, when all else fails, whine.
