Ahhhhhhh-Choo!

Winter is transitioning to spring here in North Carolina - days with temps in the 70's immediately followed by diving temps into the 30's, then back to the 50's, down to the 40's, up to the 60's - up and down. So you know what that means. Everyone we know is SICK - and we are teetering on the edge here ourselves. Last week Jason was congested and head-achy and tired and feeling yucky, and this week it is Amanda. I am resisting the germs by sheer will power, I think. That and pots of homemade chicken soup, zinc lozenges, Emergen-C, and hot tea. Jason had a cough that kicked up when he laid down in bed at night, but I put Vicks VapoRub on the bottoms of his feet, covered them up with socks, tucked him in, and he slept quietly. Don't know why, but it works!

I'm sorry to hear of the 'crud' that's visited you all. Get well soon.
I love your new layout...the text is much easier to read against the new background.
Think spring! LOVE, MOM

Did I read that right? On the bottoms of his feet? Wow, I will have to give this a try. Thanks for the tip. You always have the greatest tips to pass along.
