You can try to gargle warm salt water, or a spoonful of honey may help.

I think Merry Carey and Meceka swear by hot tea and honey!

I was looking for deals on Christmas clearance on websites, I went to Walmart.com and they have no trace of Christmas decor whatsoever. I typed "Christmas decor" and I got redirected to "gift shop" all they had was a stocking there.

Happy New Year, my Christmas friends!

I've had my black-eyed peas and collards, so I'm off to a good start for my new year!

Last night, we steamed oysters and shot fireworks, then I went to bed. Today is my last day off, but I don't mind getting back to work. My schedule is waaaayyy off, so I might have a hard time getting up in the morning though!

I hope y'all have a great evening, and a great New Year!

I'm a little late to the kickoff party, but glad to be prepared for another Christmas Countdown! Best of luck to everyone in this upcoming year. Make 2013 the best it can be!

In celebration last night, Kim and I went to our friends Scott and Kelly's apartment a few blocks from our apartment. There, we had a great time with about a dozen of our closest friends. It was a wonderful way to ring in the New Year. I hope you all had safe and happy times as well.

It's hard to believe the 2013 Christmas Season has officially come and gone. What a momentous occasion it was. As per tradition, I undecorated the Christmas Tree and took down all the Christmas decorations around the apartment. It seems so bare! Everything has been stored in the closest and is all ready to return in 10 months and 13 days - the beginning of the next Christmas Season!

Until then, let us all marvel in the wonder of the Christmas Countdown and strive to make this year the Countdown's most successful yet! I'm excited to have the opportunity to enjoy another year with you all, friends!

I just got over a terrible sore throat a few weeks ago.

Here are some things that worked for me:

- Gargle with warm salt water.
- Drink hot lemon tea with honey and whisky.
- Suck on cough drops that have honey in them to sooth the throat.
- Don't drink cold beverages, they irritate the throat and can start up a cough.
- Rest your throat because straining it just makes it hurt worse.

Hope you feel better!

Tonight is usually the last night that my family will light up. I am going to make sure we do soon for the remainder of the night. No one in our neighborhood lights up anymore. The people behind us do and that is about it. Our neighbors ripped their tree down last week. Boo!
