I'm sick now. I actually feel fine, but I've had this awful sore throat. I haven't had one all year :(. Oh well, I guess it was inevitable.
Since I prefer using holistic treatments, I've been enjoying hot herbal tea and apple cider (not together), lots of vitamin C, Ricola cough drops with echinacea, and gargling with hot water (not too hot!) and cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper is probably the most effective treatment I've found yet. I tried to grow a plant so I could use it for medicinal purposes, but the seeds never sprouted. Sad. :( But today is better than yesterday. That's good. Anyone else ready for 60 degree weather yet?
In other news, I've finished replacing all the flooring in my home (except underneath the furnace and water heater)! Yay! We got the last bedroom done Saturday and I feel very accomplished. :) No more carpet! I finally have a carpet free home! If you think carpet is clean, try ripping some up. I had to wear a mask from all the dirt and that was still in it. Yuck!
