I've been fighting a cold the past few days, I put my boxing gloves on and tried to get this cold out of my system but the dang thing won't leave. In all my years on this earth, I have never in my life been sick as many times as I have since becoming a mom. Isn't being sick as a mom the worse??? Ardo wants to give me a million besitos and I think, with every kiss, I could get you sick, and then it's really over. I decided to stay home from work today, except staying home with Ardo is less rest and more work? So my mom (bless her) picked up Ardo for a few hours so I could just rest. Nothing else. I laid in bed for hours watching tv and resting. I wasn't all alone tho cause Goliath joined me. Except I think he thinks this is a marathon napping session. Whenever I don't feel well I always gather up a few cold fighting items. I don't know how or why, but they always make me feel better.
1. Squirt :: Less sugar tasting than sprite and sierra mist and always settles my stomach.
2. Crackers :: To eat with soup or eat by themselves. Also works for me as a stomach settler. (For some reason colds and upset stomachs for me go hand and hand)
3. Menudo :: This is an important one. Heavy enough as a meal and if medicine needs to be taken but still a soup. Some people don't like the meat in the menudo. I am NOT one of those people. I don't always have spicy but when I have a cold I enjoy spicy to clear my nose and throat up. Canned is always a must to have on hand but of course I enjoy fresh menudo whenever possible.
4. Tapatio :: For flavor, and to really help clear my stuffy nose.
