Archive for January 8th, 2013

Well it has started it-the next round of deployments. We had a lovely four days visiting with Navy Girl and Mr. and Mrs. Air Force Girl. And of course when it was time to leave (ok most of the morning) I bawled like a baby. The more I tried not to cry the harder I cried. It is so hard when soldiers, sailors and airmen are deployed. The worst part is not being able to pick up the phone and hear their voices.

Navy Girl pointed out to me that we don’t see each other all that often now, but we can and do Skype so at least then I can see her pretty face and hear her lovely voice. Now it will be many many many months until I get to hear her. We are luckier than many families; her job requires her to check her email frequently so we will be able to get email from her fairly regularly.

We all seem to have caught the sinus version of the gunk that is going around. It starts with a sore throat and moves into the sinuses. That seems to be as far as mine went. As soon as I was coming down with it I started drinking 2 teaspoons of raw honey in some hot water. That helped my throat a lot. I read that if you take 1 teaspoon of raw honey with ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon in some hot water twice a day for three days it will help knock down a cold. It seems to have worked. Plus get lots of rest, I took Vicks sinus stuff and slept at least 8 hours a time. I feel pretty good right now.

Many people have been getting that horrible flu that is going around. Please be careful if you get it, BFF and Mr. Air Force Girl’s mom have both ended up in the hospital with it. Everyone I know that has caught it has been knocked down hard with it. Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands! Cover your mouth when you cough, cover your mouth when you cough, cover your mouth when you cough! It is the best way to not catch things and to not give it to anyone else.

Happy thoughts for a happy day!
