"So which one of you is sick this time?"

That was the question asked to me when I went to our lovely Wal-Mart pharmacy and spoke to my favorite pharmacist for the 3rd time in 1 week. The answer: Me. I got the hacking cough/cold/congestion/headache/generally feeling like crap syndrome, late Saturday night and due to my blood pressure issues, there isn't a whole lot that I can take that would actually make me feel better. Because I still can't get my bp under control, I can't even take my migraine medicine. Ugh. It made for a super fun weekend! Anyways, I went to my doc again yesterday, and I have an upper respiratory infection. He gave me one of my two favorite miracle drugs in the whole wide world: steroid shot (the other is an epidural...blessings from God above). I feel so much better today and I haven't coughed at all today. Yet. Knock on wood.

In other news, Jackson is doing much better. He is back at school and having a blast as usual. He has decided that Jeremy is his favorite person in the world, and that I can't even hold him unless it is his idea. He literally turned his body to Jello when he and Jeremy got home yesterday and proceeded to wail when Jeremy put him down. I know that it is just a phase, but let me tell you. It STINKS!!! I can't stand it that he doesn't want me. You think maybe if I give him some Ice Cream tonight he would like me again? Just thinking...

For the rest of this, I am going to break down into bullet format. It will make everything so much easier.
  • My favorite Sister-In-Law (affectionately known as "The Original Amy Wade") has decided to start her own blog about her and her fiance Adam. I am soo excited that I just can't stand it. Now if only I can get my sister Kellyn to start blogging...
  • I made the best strawberry cake last night. Just a normal cake mix, but the icing is to die for. Here goes: 1 box of confectioners sugar, 1 stick of butter, 1 cup of chopped strawberries. That's it..just blend and smooth over the cake. I promise I could eat the entire bowl. Seriously, the cake itself can't compare.
  • My Nanny is in town right now staying with my Mom. She is hilarious. She half listens to you, and then gets confused by something she hears. When I was telling everyone that I got a steroid shot, she said, "You got SHOT". Yes Nanny. I got shot today. Didn't you hear? J/K I LOVE my Nanny. She is my last living Grandparent, and she is so funny. You never know quite what she is going to say.

I guess that's all for now. Have a great Tuesday.

You must have known. At first I was totally joking, but this is literally starting to creep me out! Guess who's sick at my house?? ME!!! With the same stuff YOU are! I'm going to have to stop blogstalking you or find a different SS Class (I am so totally kidding, by the way).

Okay, you entered my cupcake tote bag giveaway and I was just kinda browsing around and random blogs and saw your post...

You are going to think I am some kind of yoga/voodoo/hippie, but I swear I am not.

If you have a hard time with sinus stuff you should really try out a Neti pot. It is that weirdo thing where you pour the water in one side of your nose and out the other.

Dr. Oz (of Oprah fame) recommended it on the show one day and now my hubby and I are using it everyday.

It works better than sinus drugs for keeping us sniffly-free.

I am going to be posting all about it later this week (prob. Fri or Sat) so feel free to come back over to my blog and learn more.

I don't sell them or anything, it just really does work.
