In Which I Buy on the Cheap Then Make My Regrets

Uggh. I got it - the kids' tummy bug. Last night and today have just been so lovely there aren't words for it. I spent most of the day sleeping and Hubbers now thinks I'm a lump.

In my quest to alleviate my nausea, I've been trying the home remedies: lemons, ginger, peppermint, saltine crackers.

I had used ginger ale before, but always bought the cheapo 2 liter bottle kind since I hate ginger ale. Making my regrets now: I purchased the EXPENSIVE GOOD kind because it was the only one that came in cans. Guess what? I like ginger ale.

God Bless Schweppes in the pretty green can.

Moral of the story: Sometimes cheap frugal isn't always the best when quieting the upset tummy.
