Fighting A Cold...

Y'all. Last night I felt a sore throat coming on and this morning when I woke up it was killer. Just going up and down the stairs took all the energy I had...so I quarantined myself to the couch. All day. Like, alllllllll day. In my attempting to avoid the a bad dose of the summer cold I've tried all sorts of home-made remedies. "Immunity-health shots" that taste so gross you literally have to shoot it. Lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper & tumeric. Yuck. I ate chicken noodle soup (that I bought from Panera cause when you're sick you can't cook.) That was also the only time I left the couch. Walgreens, Panera, Kroger & Target (and I only went to Target cause Kroger was out of lemons...what the??)

I found apiece of heart-shaped celery in my soup. Thanks Panera. Way to show the love :)

I drank more tea & water than I can even recall. I also made a curry for dinner which kind of broke my "no cooking while sick rule" but it was another remedy I read about so I loaded it up with garlic, sweet potato, onion & lots of curry powder...spicy. It looked realllllly gross but tasted delicious.

I spent my day watching Gossip Girl...I know..I know...but I've got to admit Blair, Serena and the gang are perfect sick day binge watching material. I was also so bored of laying on the couch that at one point I started googling and Facebook stalking old boyfriends. That's when I knew I had been laying around too long. I blame Gossip Girl for making me do it ;)

So there's my day in a nutshell. I know you were dying to know. I'll leave you with this quote I found today on one of my many meaningless trails on the internet.

xo xo Gossip Girl Kate :)
