We. Are. All. Sick.

It sucks.

Just a nasty cold, but we all have it and we are all pretty much miserable.

Believe me when I say that there is very little that I can do for my little grumpy monkey.

I don't believe in drugging my child- so I've been giving her a homeopathic remedy during the day and a very small (1/4 the recommend dose) of Mortin at night. I've been pumping her full of apple juice (1/2 juice, 1/2 water) and giving her lots of oranges and other fruits high in Vitamin C. She won't nurse because she can't breathe and she wants nothing to do with her milk. She doesn't want to eat anything.

Me? I have a sore throat, a killer case of the chills and a lot of aches and pains. I slept from 7:30pm-8:30am. I'm still not feeling 100%.

What do you do to make yourself and your children feel better when you all feel like crap? I don't want to go out to buy anything, and I'm not a fan of OTC medications.

Comment below and let me know what gets you on the mend ASAP.

Frugally Yours,
Erin B.


  1. soup, warm baths, warm gingerale, tea with honey and lemon, warm blankets and cuddles and lots of sleep!!

    Feel better soon!

  2. Nice warm soup is always comforting, as is hot tea. When I was last sick, I found that a vaporizer helped at night with decongestion. During the day, I'd turn on a humidifier with a few drops of Peppermint Essential Oils in the water and the strong Peppermint scent really helped to unplug the nose!

    Get well quickly!
