nightime....

I've been fighting a cold all week long. It has not been pretty. Lots of moaning and trying to get someone to feel my head so they could tell me I had a fever and feel really really bad for me....and maybe rub my back.....or plump my pillows....or rent a good movie for me to watch.
The other night my hubby woke me up to tell me I was snoring and could I roll over.
Then he did it again.
Annnnnnnnnd then he did it again and we got into a fight over who was snoring the loudest. For the record it was him. hmph.

So I took a little trip to the store yesterday. Got the stuff I needed to Netti Pot and some Breath Right Strips. Don't know what a Netti Pot is?? Oh, well let me explain. You fill this little plastic pot with some warm water and a packet of the saline solution stuff. Then you shove the nozzle in one nostril and tilt your head. The warm water goes through your sinuses and cleans you out. Then you repeat with the other nostril. Sounds fun right!!
As I was Netti Potting my hubby walked in to get ready for bed. He watched me for a moment. I talked to him as I was putting on my Breath Right Strips. Never having used them before I spent about 5 minutes just breathing heavily through my nose and telling my hubby again and again that I thought it was working. All the time I was getting myself ready to sleep he never said a word. Just looked at me.
How the man kept his hands off of me I will never know.

I hope you get better soon!!! Don't forget good old fashion Vicks VapoRub on your chest and throat. It will be a true miracle if he could resist then!!!

You poor thing! He should have slept on the couch and given you the entire bed, so you could get a good night's sleep and feel better in the morning!

I have never ever ever heard of this Netti Pot. BUT did it work? Are you a 100% today? Ready to rock & roll? I hope so!

I got a netti pot, too! We are sinus sistas! They really do wash you out and gets rid of alot of the crud that makes us sick. I saw one demo'd on Oprah when Dr. Oz was on one time. Once you get the hang of the "right tilt" of your head it's great. Until then, all the "stuff" runs down your throat. Ick. You know instantly when you're not leaning and tilting right!

Hope you feel better soon. I'm working on a bug, swollen glands in my neck, sore throat, coughing....

I think I should be disinfecting my computer or something. You're about the 3rd person today with a cold or flu.

I just can't see myself doing the neti pot thing, but I did order 2 neti sticks from some online source. They're just like the Vicks inhaler thingies, but don't last me a full night. As I have a nose mask for my C-PAP, it gets a little counter-productive to have a stuffy nose.

C-PAPs are such sexy accessories anyway.

Dawn, Are you ok? If you're still sick, you need more than the Neti pot!

I've checked on you daily to take the pulse of your blog, but no pulse has been found. I do hope you are feeling better and posting again! You are missed
