Remember last week I said I would be back to regular posting? Then I didn’t? I feel a little guilty about that. As usual, the girls gave me their cold. The fatigue has made it a little more difficult to keep up with things.
A couple of days ago during my suffering, I remembered that I had a Netti Pot. For those of you unfamiliar, a Netti Pot is an odd little teapot that you stick up your nose to clean out your sinuses. A pharmacist talked me into trying it the last time I had a cold. I must have been looking at him like he was nuts when he demonstrated how to use one.
Pharmacist- “You just tip your head and let the water run through your sinuses. You’d be surprised at how many people are using them now.”
Me- “Have you used one?”
Pharmacist- “Yes and it really helped.”
Me- “That really could just kill the romance in a relationship, couldn’t it? Mine’s already dead though, so I’ll take it.”
So the last couple of evenings I have stood at the kitchen sink cleaning out my nose. N has sinus problems so I talked him into doing it, too. N was able to breathe through both sides of his nose for the first time in recent history. I think we sometimes forget that low-tech can be very effective.
I was going through old picture files last night and found the one above. It was taken about three years ago when the girls first got their little car. I thought it was probably more interesting than the visual of me sticking a little pot up my nose. I posted it in an effort to salvage this post.
