Summer colds are a bitch

I suppose it was almost inevitable, Dave had it and my grandsons came up and also were sick, coughing and sneezing and sharing my bedroom. First my throat felt like razor blades were cutting into it and I had a headache. Next came the mucous attack. The razors moved on to my chest, where they cut into me each time I cough. Fortunately I have the jumbo bottle of robitussin expectorant. Plus I'm well stocked on zicam, Emergen-C, ginger, honey and lemon, and lots of teas. I'm also resorting to my top secret (shhhh) remedy of hot salsas and chutneys since I can't take decongestants.

I hope I'm back to some semblence of normal by Monday.

And can I just say I hate pushing the hot liquids when it's hot outside?
