Really? Sick again?

I went to pick up Blake from school today and his teacher told me that he didn't eat his snack at snack time today, {VERY unlike him} because his throat hurt... And then proceeds to tell me that strep has been going around... AWESOME. She said she took his temp and no fever, So maybe there's still hope that it's just a sore throat, Nothing a few popsicles can't fix right?!?
And I woke up this morning dreading getting out of bed because I could feel the gunk in my throat before I was even really awake...
I'm totally bummed that I am basically couch ridden! I am not sure if it's strep, Another sinus infection, or both, But I am SICK with a capital S. Thank heavens my kiddos have been relatively calm and easy today, {Which I think may be accredited to them feeling a bit under the weather as well.}  Anywho, I am so bummed because I have a million projects that I am super excited to do and share, And have no energy to carry them out. So, While I am under the weather I just wanted to post a little shout out to the things that have made my life a bit better. 

This is one of the worlds greatest inventions... 
Magic in a bag...
The rice pad... You can learn how to make one here. We have 4 different heating pads, including expensive Electric ones... But you know what, We use this one more than any of the others combined. Seriously between Mike's "sore old man after football muscles" and my "You don't stretch enough muscles" Its used at least 4 or 5 times a week.

This kind of Gatorade... The green wrapper is the best... I can't remember what flavor it is. I get my cases at Sams. Costco stopped carrying them :(

And you know of course some good ol homemade chicken soup!
I don't ever make mine the same, Otherwise I'd give you a recipe... But it's usually just some chicken broth, home made or home style noodles, and some veggies. And maybe if my tummy can handle it a bit of seasoning.
This has got to end soon... It's basically summer here in Florida, Shouldn't this junk be gone already?
