Warm Jello and Richie Rich

When I was a kid, and I felt sick...or even pretended to feel sick by wrapping the thermometer in a heating pad, my mom would make warm jello for me because it felt so good on the sore throat. I also remember her coming back from the store with a new comic book. Usually Little Lotta or Richie Rich! I don't remember getting comic books for any other reason. But that could just be a childs perspective and selective memory.

Today, after two weeks of feeling sorry for Menehune Man, it seems he has shared his bug with me. I woke up at 5am with such a sore throat. I didn't get up again until 11:30 when MM announced that he had made me some soup.

So today has been one of those days that a little warm jello would feel so good. Instead of the Richie Rich and Little Lotta, I sat with a remote and watched a full season of Project Runway! I just couldn't bring myself to do much of anything else.

Finally I came into the computer room and decided to catch up on my records. I hadn't updated Augusts' sales yet so needed to add that up since here we are at the end of September! If you will recall, my goal for the year was to make 1000 bags. As of yesterday (since I didn't sew today) I am at 812! With three months left in the year, I am confident that I will reach my goal. It may not be warm jello, but it did cheer me up!

PS...the photo was taken of my big sis feeding me when I had the chicken pox. (a few years ago)

Send MM down to the nearest drugstore to pick up some Zicam and start taking it right away. If taken early enough in the development of the bug, I promise that it will seriously shorten the length of your cold. Normally, I am not inclined to believe in miracles, but I have successfully dodged every nasty cold that has come my way in the past five years by taking this homeopathic remedy (the most recent was just last wee; brought home by Bill. I couldn't get him to take Zicam and he has had a terrible week! I, on the other hand, suffered only the very beginnings of a cold and a little light congestion).

Feel better soon!

Suzanne, Thanks! I think I had heard of that before but in this "fog of sickness" didn't think of it! Let's hope it works! I am TOO busy to be sick!

My pharmacist recommended the generic for Claritin-D. It hasn't made me all better but greatly reduced my symptoms so that I can function. Wish I were there to make you warm jello!
Love you!!!

Well, I got the zicam and thought I was on the mend! Felt so much better! But today...sore throat is back and can hardly talk! Will take more Zicam and pick up some claridan. Thanks so much for the suggestions. Love you mom. I'll call when I can talk!
