Sick Already....Pinterest Tips for Colds!

Before I get started, if you missed yesterday's PRODUCT SWAP POST, you should check it out!!!

I know some of you are like me and have already started your school year. I'm in my 2nd week with students and this week I've had EIGHT students out sick! There is Strep throat and a virus going through our class :(

I'm one of those people who, if something's going around, I'm gonna get it! I guessed, something's coming. I've got a HORRIBLE sore throat, I feel tired, and my voice may leave me soon. I don't think it's strep. I think it's just allergies/cold, but either way, it stinks!

I work with some of the sweetest, most thoughtful women in the world. Look what one of my teammates dropped off in my class yesterday:
It's a late birthday gift, but because she knew I wasn't feeling good, she stocked it with some special goodies:

Cough drops, Thera-Flu, Vitamin water, Throat Coat tea, a Walgreen's giftcard, and a Dunkin' Donuts giftcard.....

That totally made my day, and the throat coat tea is FABULOUS!

So, knowing that some of you HAVE NOT started back yet, I wanted to go ahead and share a few tips and tricks from PINTEREST to help you get through some sicknesses when you are surrounded by kiddy germs! :) Hope you find them helpful! I know I am....

The BIGGEST SHOCKER (but, it did help! Trust me, I tried it!)

All this talk of germs and colds makes me think of my FAVORITE I made a little free printable poster if any of you want to print it for home (I'm thinking most of us could NOT post it at school, but I'm going to make a cute frame and hang it in my guest bathroom).
Just click the picture to grab yours! This is made by me, but this is a well known saying that' been around forever! I can't take ANY credit for that! LOL



  1. I didn't know about the marshmallows trick when you have a sore throat! I am definitely trying it out the next time I get one. I always end up getting horrible sore throats when I am sick & it drives me crazy. Feel better! :)

    1. Yep! I didn't know either, but it does work! Problem is, I'm trying to stay away from, I can't use anymore of the marshmallows! lol

  2. Ooo, sounds like a good excuse to eat marshmallows! ;)

  5. I hope you feel better soon! Eat lots of marshmallows! I know I am! Sadly, though, I don't have a sore throat. Actually, I guess I should say, gladly, I don't have a sore throat. I just LOVE marshmallows. Thanks for all the good tips!
