I know this is going to taste nasty but I'll give you the remedy mom would have made you drink. Drink it first and kill me later. :)
Take a whole lemon and chop it in half, do the same with the lime.
Take one half of each the lemon and lime and squeeze over a cup.
Add 2-3 tsps honey.
Slam that shhhht, make your funny faces, and chase with water.
(No, seriously, put it in a shot glass if you have one and slam it.)
Put yourself on a regimen and take the concoction twice a day. It tastes nasty but it really does help you beat the colds. Drink tea, eat lots of chicken soup! You might consider sending a newsletter home with the kids that explains that you don't want sick children around, getting anyone else sick. I can't believe that kids are sent out in the world sick.. I wasn't allowed to even leave my bedroom when I was contagious, let alone go to school to spread my germs. Nowadays kids are sent to school with pink eye and strep. -.-
I hope you feel better and if you drink the concoction, let me know if it helps you. Everyone mom assigns it to says it helped them, so I'm curious to know! I hope you feel better.
(And when you ride next, it will be the most amazingly amazing ride because your horse will be perfect. ;)
The path is different for you and me, but the journey begins in the heart.
