Strep Throat...

Well, my boy seems to be feeling quite a bit better! He's eating a ton and he's not nearly as cranky. Thank goodness. I, on the other hand, have come down with strep throat and it sucks! All I want to do is curl up on the couch with a bowl of frozen berries, some hot toddy and watch documentaries all day. These ones look pretty awesome.

Deep Water tells the gripping story of an amateur sailor who (insanely) enters a solo race around the world.
Seven Up is a series of documentaries that have tracked the lives of fourteen English schoolchildren since 1964, when they were seven years old. Every seven years, the filmmaker releases a new documentary that checks in on their increasingly varied lives. (They're now 53!)
American Teen follows five high-school seniors--a jock, princess, heart-throb, geek and misfit--in a small Indiana town.
Autism: The Musical chronicles five autistic children as they rehearse for a musical production.
Stranded lets the survivors of the famous 1972 Andes plane crash tell their story of survival.
Man on Wire is a documentary about a wild French tightrope walker and his jaw-dropping(illegal) stunts.
Surfwise tells the story of the Paskowitz couple, who drops off the grid to drive their nine kids around in a camper and surf all day.

Here's a DIY recipe for hot toddy by Seablanket.
"My go-to get well drink is a good ole' hot toddy. A simple splash of whiskey seems to be a cure-all for all my cold symptoms. The recipe is simple, and cold symptoms will be out the door after a cup or two. Ingredients: Whiskey, honey, lemon, a variety of teas.Pour one ounce whiskey and one tablespoon honey into your glass. Add half a lemon in slices - squeeze some of the slices so the juice is added to your mixture. Put a kettle on, and boil some water. Find 2-3 tea bags for flavor. I used immune support, peppermint and black tea, yummy! Steep your tea bags for 3-5 minutes and remove. Now, drink up and get well!"

Don't worry, I'll stick with tea until Evan arrives home from work.
