[And welcome to my little blog.]

I'm Amanda! So happy you are here. Grab a glass of wine, read along, and let's be friends.

Tea, honey, brown sugar, lemon, and whiskey

Tuesday, March 1, 2011
Last weekend Kevin and I watched my little brother Jonah while my parents went to Mexico to an all-inclusive resort.  They took a well-deserved vacation to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.  We had a great weekend together.  The highlight was going to visit Kevin's cousin Jeff at his fire station with Kevin's sister and her family (Thanks Jeff!). 

The low-point of the weekend was after Jonah left I immediately started to get sick.  Jonah had a cough the whole weekend and I think the little bugger got me sick. Soar throat, runny nose, coughing, and a fever off and on.  I've been sick for over a week now.  Sucks!  

I'm taking Mucinex, got on an antibiotic on Saturday, and took it easy all weekend (Kevin and I spent all Sunday on the couch watching the entire first season of Dexter) but I'm still feeling pretty miserable.  Yesterday a co-worker recommended a shot of whiskey to help me feel better.  Apparently a doctor friend of his said a shot of whiskey is often more effective than most cough medicines.  Not sure if I'm desperate enough for a shot of warm whiskey so after surfing around on the internet, I stumbled across a hot totty recipe.  It called for tea, honey, brown sugar, lemon, and whiskey.  Tastes sort of weird but feels pretty good on my throat.  God I hope it helps, I'm tired of being sick.  Any other suggestions?

I have actually heard that whiskey not only helps with sore throats and coughs, but also with fevers. When Brad was sick and had mono, our doctor told us to wrap him up really tight in a blanket and drink a couple shots of whiskey. We weren't sure what to do, but were pretty desperate because he'd had a fever for over a week and ibuprofen wasn't even touching it. We decided to try it and his fever broke in less than an hour. :)

Who knew? I wish there was a book or something you could read with all the little helpful tidbits. How's Brad feeling these days? Has he kept getting sick since the mono? Love ya!
