My house has been fighting a sickness for 3 weeks. It started with my son, then passed on to my and know my husband is down because of it. It has literally drained me and I haven't felt like cooking much lately. Today is know different so I am going for a more simple meal for dinner tonight. I am just going to make some Spaghetti with Meatballs. Of course I have already made meatballs I bought for practically nothing with coupons. I also have frozen garlic bread so my dinner will be cheap and easy which is perfect on a night I just don't feel like cooking.

I have been fighting this cold and ear infection for 10 days the most miserable part is the cough at night that keeps me up and not being able to take anything because I am pregnant. I do feel like I am on the down hill slide as long as my husband isn't bringing it all back around since hes just getting it.

@farbuoloxusy Have you talked to your doctor about something you can take for it? If nothing else, at least for the cold drink lots of juice and water. Too bad they don't have what was around when I was younger for ear infections - it really worked too. It was called Campho Fenique or something like that. Not sure of the spelling on the second word, but the first is correct. It was drops you put in your ears along with a cotton ball and eventually the ear infection went away. I was plagued with them until I was in fifth grade.

@just4him My Dr. said for the cold I can take Robitussin but it doesn't seem to do anything so I just stopped taking it. And they do have me on an antibiotic for my ears because my fever started to spike but I hate taking medications while pregnant. I never took anything not even Tylenol with my son. I use Camphophinique for my cold sores but I haven't heard of it for ear infections I will have to look into that!

We thought they were finally getting over it only to have my son start coughing again two nights ago. This cold is absolutely awful!

By the end of the day I frequently am dragging. It must be ten times worse with your illness. It sounds like a good meal, done easily.

Well since I am once again a stay at home mom I have less excuses when it comes to getting dinner done. Although, there are still days I walk into the kitchen and just re think the whole cooking idea.

It is one of those mostly already cooked meals that you can still spice up so it should work. Thank you!

I hope you get feeling better very soon. It is hard to cook when you don't feel well, so your family is lucky you're being aable to do it.

There is chances because you all are living together. When a flue comes in my family, it is the same effect.

Ah but making home made and using fresh ingredients boosts the down immune system while the junk in processed foods just keeps weakening the immune system . . .
