Let’s talk about your sick-time remedies!


So… a lot has been going on for me!  Right after my last post I started a new job and I have been going non-stop!  

Where has that left me?  Sick!  

Since Zach has been sick for the last week, and has developed a pretty serious sinus infection I have been putting together some home remedies to help him cope… and now I have to start using them too! 

While I luckily have avoided the sinus infection part I am still dealing with a mild head cold with a headache that comes and goes.  We have invested in a neti pot, and I have been using that, as well as drinking some Emergen-C and lemon echinacea tea.  I am probably even going to try a steam treatment tonight with some tea tree and eucalyptus oil mixed in to help with the nasal issues and ensure a better night of sleeping.  

What types of remedies do you use when you’re battling a cold?  What type of stuff do you have on hand now that the cold season is upon us!!



Running in Denver.


Who…. in the world… thought… I should… start…. doing that?  <wheeze wheeze>


Holy moley!  Trying to get back in shape after two years of non-shape graduate schooling seems like it’s going to be harder than ever here!  While I have been riding my new bike around for a few days now (pictures below!)… going for my first 1 mile jog today really hurt!  

Now… I’ll be the first to admit that my breathing is always what stops me from running, especially the first 2 weeks of a renewed work out.  I start wheezing, my chest burns with a vigor I didn’t know existed, and I made more saliva than Pavlov’s dog… but today was brutal!  I’m not sure if it is because the air is thinner, or because I am just so out of shape, but I was impressed with how little I could really jog!  Looks like I’m just going to have to get back on the horse/pavement tomorrow and keep trying!  





Yowza… where does the time go between posts.

Much like my sleep schedule, my posting has been inconsistent, either quite short or quite long, and most of all at the wrong time of day!

Anyway… this weekend was spent madly crafting!

Here are some pictures!

As you can see from the last picture… not everyone made it out of the crafting weekend awake.  😉

Not sure when my next post will be.  I have a second interview tomorrow that will take most of my day… but hopefully on Thursday I can update you on all the current haps!

Look forward to this Sunday too… since I have two Staying Wild Sundays to catch up on!


Hold onto your nice, probably well-knit socks everyone… the Pumpkin Games of 2012.
