without getting sick. After all the work and parties and eating too much, I am paying the price. We went out to eat 5 times in the last 3 days, breakfast included. I have eaten like there's no tomorrow. Something has to stop!! Even my BIL, who usually will eat until you drag him away from the table, is remarking about the amounts of food consumed. I've made turkey soup, pinto beans and cornbread and ham - so on the nights we haven't eaten out, we've done quite well at home.
After dinner last night at The Angus Barn, we came home and my throat started closing up and feeling raw. I hate that feeling (does anyone not hate it?) and I took meds, including a sinus/allergy pill. Once I went to sleep, I stayed in bed for 8 hours - not a usual thing for me. Once I finally dragged myself out of the covers, I crept downstairs to get more meds and coffee, hoping that would make me perk up. No such luck. I have spent the day in my pj's and robe, throat wrapped in a scarf, drinking first hot and then cold drinks in my quest for throat relief. Bean soup helped a little....lol
