Scratchy Throat and Runny Nose…

Oh no!  I woke up this morning with a little bit of a scratchy throat which happens sometimes in the winter.  I grabbed a cup of hot tea and thought nothing more about it until a little bit later.  I noticed this little catch in my throat which made me cough.  A couple of coughing fits later, it dawned on me.  I caught the cold my husband suffered with last weekend.  Great!  He is a pretty strong guy who doesn’t usually let too much get him down, but this cold did him in:  tired, achy, runny nose, and cough.  I remembered he did say that it took a few days before it really hit.  I have time…

I went to the store and bought some medicine for ‘pre-colds.’  I’ve never tried this type of medicine before because I always wondered how someone knew that they were getting a cold.  Well, I guess I discovered the answer to that question!  I bought the medicine, came home, ate lunch and let the medicine dissolve on my tongue following the directions on the box.  Every three hours, I am suppose to take another dose.

I hope it works!  I’ll keep you posted if it does or it does not.  Fingers crossed that it works!



  1. I have never tried any of that stuff either! Good luck!

  2. Tough start to the day, but sometimes it’s nice to have an excuse to stay in bed. Good luck!
