II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Help! I can't breath.........

Well, it's Friday night 9 pm and my hubby is already asleep. Brooklyn's watching t.v. so I thought I'd spend a minute or two rambling on here. My nose has been so stuffy today it's been exhausting just breathing. I have some weird thing where I can't STAND to breath out of my mouth and right now, breathing through my nose is like trying to drink a frosty from Wendy's through a straw. Ok, I know that is a weird analogy but if you've ever tried it---you'll understand. Anyway, for some reason, we have NO sinus medication in our house. It's crazy because I have a huge plastic tub full of medicines and I sat down and went through each and every one in there and the closest thing I could find was some Benedryl Allergy..but that says it treats itchy throat, runny nose and watery eyes....none of which I have. So, I stuck a Breath Right strip on my nose and hopefully that will do the trick. We do have Vicks vapor rub...but I HATE that stuff. Matt uses it anytime he's congested and it works great for him...but I can't stand that hot/freezing feeling so it is usually my last resort. However...if I have the kind of night tonight that I had last night..it probably won't take me long to give it a try. I was so icky feeling last night that I practically passed out in bed around 9:30 pm. I was in such a deep sleep that I woke up some time in the middle of the night to Matt asking me what I was doing. I answered, "I have no idea" but I was sitting up in bed turning my bedside lamp on and off over and over. I still have no idea what in the world I was thinking...but it's not like me to ever sleep that deep...so I know this sinus stuff is messing with my head.
Anyway...enough nose talk...Have I mentioned that my parents sold their house this week? They decided to put a For Sale By Owner sign in their front yard this past Sunday. They had 3 people come to look at it that day and the last people who came put a contract on it! Since then, they have been meeting with different builders and are probably going to start building a house out here pretty soon. It will be exciting to be close to each other again. We've always lived within about a mile of each other...so being 20 minutes away is getting old.
In other news...
Matt's dad is coming to visit tomorrow. We just found out about 2 hours ago...so it is a pleasant surprise. He hasn't seen our new house yet so it will be fun to get to show him around. I think we are planning on going out to dinner tomorrow night at the Olive Garden. (YUM!!!) It's a good thing Matt got my treadmill fixed today because I am going to need to be racking up some miles on it after this weekend. We are having my parents over for dinner Sunday night for Lasagna and today we went out for lunch and I had a patty melt and fries. It was sooooooooo good...but I feel like I just erased the two hours of aerobics I did yesterday. Oh well...
Well, guys..I guess I should get off here and get my girly into bed and then myself. Grant didn't take a nap today...so he went down for the night at about 6 pm.---which means he'll probably be up by 6 am tomorrow! :o( Hope you all have a great weekend! Don't forget to start looking for a valentine for your sweethearts!!!

Hey I totally understand about the vicks rub. Try using it in the vaporizer. It helps it clears Easton and I right up. Also that new medicine that starts with a M you know the commerical where they hack it out. That is great it works for cold, sinus and I think just about everything else. Don't get the one in the red box because it will knock you out for at least half a day. The one in the blue box is the best. Hope you guys start feeling better and thanks for the quote I loved it. Oh I'll tell you what my sister did for Valentines day for her hubby. She got them Ballroom dancing lessons. They had a blast last night! Well gotta go Easton is going crazy.
