Bleeeeegh. Was up half the night with a sore throat from hell and coughing. I was too afraid to take NyQuil because if I was going to call in sick, I needed to call in around 10, and I’ve never called in sick to this job before and since they’re not real big on giving us proper breaks, I was worried about calling in and wanted to give as much notice as I could. (I was due in at 1).

Anyway. I just talked to the office manager and she said to feel better and give her a call in a few hours to let her know if I’d be able to make it in tomorrow. Painless as all get out. Because they were so great about not giving me crap about calling in so soon after being hired, I really want to be back on top tomorrow and be able to get back to work. It’s amazing what a little courtesy towards your staff can do! Anyhoo, I am chugging this and Bravissimo and about to take some NyQuil so I can beat this cold.

I can’t speak much for taste because my tastebuds are all out of whack, but it did help my throat a bit and my sinuses are writing me thank you notes as we speak XD. I much prefer this over Gail’s Cold Remedy, so I might stock up before the winter season starts.

Okay, off to gargle salt water, do a shot of honey, lemon, and cayenne, and then drink just enough NyQuil to push me into a nap.

What’s with all the sickness lately? I’m on (hopefully) the tail end of a pretty brutal cold and so many people seem to be sick too. I’m glad you got a guilt-free day to rest and recuperate. Feel better!

I am glad I don’t live near you guys. Last winter my husband, son and I all traded the same cold back and forth. Each one of us had it for about 2 weeks but it was horrible. I would like to avoid that this year. Especially since I am on blood pressure pills so I can’t take cold medication. Sucks big time.

I did make this one last night since my nose was getting a little plugged but I added something to it. Just can’t remember what it was. It tasted great with the addition and if I think of it I will add it here.

And I hope you feel better.

Well, I do work in a doctor’s office. Of course, it’s an optometrist, but that doesn’t keep people from bringing in their sick kids/selves. Seriously, folks, if you’re sick, reschedule. We don’t want it, there’s no penalty, the other patients don’t want it, please please please go away >.<

My wife just informed me that everyone in her workplace is coming down with something, so I blame them. Stoppit!

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
