Feel Better Bag

The flu hit Oklahoma hard last year.  Everyone I know was sick at least once in 2015.  Mr. DD, Little Devil and I spent our fare share of time on the couch.  Fortunately we weren't all sick at the same time, so we were able to take care of one another a little bit.  All kinds of respiratory illness, as well as stomach bugs were going around.  It's no fun to be sick, but it's even worse when you are a kid, and home from school bored.  A while back my BFF and her daughter were both sick.  I knew Mom felt awful, and I figured they could use a little pick me up.  Having been sick twice already (once in Las Vegas--read HERE) I left the bag hanging on their door knob, rang the bell and ran to my car.  No amount of Lysol would have gotten me through that door.  I had enough already and now I stay in hiding until Spring arrives.  I included all of the obvious things in the bag: ginger ale, crackers, and chicken noodle soup, but I also included a few fun things for my Devilish Assistant Emily.  I added a couple of Blow Pops, some Peanuts buttons and a small sock monkey cross stitch kit to keep her busy.  It was a much appreciated gift, and gave both of them a little lift.  If you know someone that's under the weather, throw together a little Feel Better Bag for them.  It really will make them feel better, and you'll feel better for doing it.
