Not again...

Monday morning..I woke up with a sore throat. Nothing could be worse this week as I am leaving today for my Labor Day trip to Nantucket. Every time I am about to travel, I get sick!!! I have been trying everything to ward this thing off. First, I started spraying Colloidal Silver up my nose. Remember the blue man on Oprah? He took this stuff everyday and it turned him silver-blue.




But, taken in tiny doses, can be super effective in drying out your congestion.




I got my Netti Pot out and have tried to use it several times...but I have the hardest time getting it to work properly and I end up making a mess and choke on the salt water.




My friend had an extra Z-pack that I started taking Monday night for my sore throat..still hoping that will kick in soon...





And on my way to work, stopped by CVS and got the good cold medicine from the pharmacy..the kind you have to give your Drivers License to scan and sign your life away so you wont melt the stuff and make crystal meth. I can't make this stuff up.
Any other suggestions??? I am desperate. Flying tonight to Boston and will be on the ferry tomorrow morning!!!

You've pretty much got it all covered...try hot tea with lemon and honey while you are sitting around or packing. :) Have a safe trip! xoxo

Stop in again and say "hello" at Erica Wilson. We have tons of new needlepoint.

Hope you feel better.

All the best,
Heidi

When I have a sore throat at this time of year it's often post nasal drip or allergies. I just take Sudafed (after promising not to make the aforementioned crystal meth). I live North of Boston year round and it usually works like a charm. Have fun!
