Cold and Flu Season is in full swing at my house. I don’t know about you but I am always in need of tips to survive a sick day. I know what to do when the rest of the family is sick but when it comes to ME, I am often lost.

The only good part about being sick is having the time to binge watch some of my favorite TV shows! I have to admit that I do enjoy getting cozy in my bed and having some me time with the TV. I thought I would share my 10 favorite binge worthy shows with you.

  1. Friends – without a doubt the best sitcom of all time. I love it and it’s a good friend to turn to when I am feeling sick.
  2. The Office – when you need a good laugh this show always delivers.
  3. Stargate – there are so many seasons of this show and it always reels me in when I start watching it. I can’t get enough! The best part is my kids like to climb in bed and watch this one with me.
  4. Seinfeld – another oldie but goodie. Kramer makes me laugh and the Soup Nazi episodes are the BEST!
  5. Star Trek Next Generation – don’t judge and don’t tell my husband I kind of like some sci fi shows!
  6. My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding – if you haven’t seen this you have to go now and start watching it. This show is a train wreck that you just can not look away from. These are the most interesting families you will ever see on TV!
  7. 90 Day Fiance – this show is hard to explain. There is romance and intrigue and a whole lot of crazy. It is definitely entertaining and will hook you if you watch.
  8. The Ranch – It’s a show with Cowboys on it. Ashton Kutcher, enough said.
  9. Sons of Anarchy – intrigue, chaos, family and motorcycles!
  10. Price is Right – I love playing the games and trying to guess the prices! You have NO IDEA how many “Showcase Showdowns” I have won.

On a recent trip to Kroger I stocked up on everything the hubby and I need to fight off the sickies.

Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment is always on my list of needs when sick. A cold sore is often my first sign that I need to slow down.
