Lemon Citrus Tea feeling under the weather - Hello, Handbag

When you're sick, there's no good solution. You have no energy, your attention span is negative, and your throat/head/stomach/everything hurts. It's tough! So here's what you do:

Get a glass of wine
I know, I'm supposed to say "have some tea." And tea helps. But you know what will really make you feel better? A glass of red wine. Sore throat? Coated. Upset stomach? Quelled. Plus, that low emotional feeling of being sick starts to go away.

Spend that gift card
You know the lonely gift card stuck in your wallet? The one with $17.12 left on it after you purchased that great pair of pumps? Now's the time to spend it! Try these:
These are are the things that get me through. What helps you? I'd love your suggestions!

    1. Oh hot chocolate, that's a great idea! And I'm with you, I firmly believe sipping warm brandy made it go away. It's antibacterial right? Teehee!
