I woke up on Friday, feeling a little yucky. I managed to make it to a morning appointment and then to a friend's house for a visit. At which point I said to her, "my hands and feet hurt and I feel weird". I ended up laying down "for a couple of minutes" and slept for the next 2-3 hours... while she watched all the kids. Hubby came by and picked us up and I slept for the next 24 hours on and off with achy, sweaty and shivering moments. Good times around this household! (I must have caught this bug from Little A who caught it at the soccer tournament last weekend or from my dad who had it a few days earlier.)

(ummm... don't know what was up with 4 yr old :-) )By the time we got home from baptism my throat was really sore and my pain medication had worn off. I called my mom at my sister's house and asked her what to do. (Mom's always know!)
She told me to gargle with salted lemon water. Huh?? What??
Basically, I took a lemon and squeezed about 1 tablespoon out it, added about 1 tablespoon of luke warm water and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and mixed it up. I gargled with it. It tasted pretty good. I normally only use the salted water but I hate the aftertaste. But this new "home-recipe" had a nice salty lemony taste to it. Not bad.
When I woke up this morning, my throat felt a whole lot better. I gargled again. I might not need antibiotics... at least I hope not.
I'm also, going to be ordering some of Shaklee
