I never really noticed before, but I apparently have a “Sick-Kit” of must-have items to help me feel better. Chris went to Walmart to grab me a few care items, and it was when I was putting together a list of things I like to have when I’m sick I realized I’ve been using the same cold & flu remedies for as long as I can remember.
