The Crazy Suburban Mom: A head cold, really?

A head cold, really?




So I'm laying here, ya know, dripping. I wasn't even going to post today because what could I contribute to the world? The current tissue count?

In the 1,000's

How much I resemble Rudolf...

rudolph

Quite a lot.

The score on the car search?

I did learn an interesting fact. The difference between a
minivan selling for $15,000 and one going for $5,000 isn't $10,000.

It's 100,000 miles on the speedometer.

Other stuff I learned today.

1. Despite the fact that my neighbor's dog never comes when she is called he still lets her out to doody on my lawn. I know this because I hear him screaming for her every day and when I let Ginger out she beelines it to a doody weighing about 7 pounds. 4 pounds less than Ginger's total body weight. And while she fancies herself a big dog in every way there is no chance that giant, steaming pile of dog doody I just picked up was Gingers.

But don't let that do anything to your self-esteem, Ginger.
In my eyes your doodys are gargantuan.

2. They don't make the tissues I love anymore! I have used Posh Puffs every time I've had a cold forever. Or at least I thought so. So I went online to find a picture and no Posh Puffs! The closest I could find was these:

Puff Ultra

The are supposed to be Ultra soft and strong.
Oh, I hope so, my nose is in need of some
soft and strong tissueing.

3. Coffee doesn't agree with me when I'm sick.

'Nuff said.

4. I tweeted Chevy that I missed my van and they tweeted back to me. No kidding!

And the Traverse is fab, for sure and would easy the pain of losing my ....

Chevy van

Maybe... I just can't *cough* afford it.

But the tweet made my day!

Mom May - Know what that was great and it reminded me of a few things I can do right now that I haven't been. I can gargle with salt water, I can do the hot liquid/honey...I did it yesterday but not today. And I can do the neti pot - I have one but honestly Im not up to that today.

Thanks for the reminders Im off to gargle and drink something warm.

Hugs
