RTT - Bedroom Karma, Weird Xmas Presents & A Cold

This ad actually ran on CBS during NCIS one night. Now, I love a practical Christmas present as much as the next person, but this is ridiculous.

My new year is all about trying different things. On Sunday, I decided to move our bedroom furniture around. I figured a little feng shui would be good for us. Make our bedroom karma even better. This lasted for one night. The move forced TH and I to sleep on different sides of the bed. I don't know about you, but after sleeping on the left side of the bed for 11 years, changing to to the right side totally freaked me out. TH wasn't to pleased either.

I always get confused with the saying "feed a cold, starve a fever" or is it "starve a cold, feed a fever". I have a cold for the first time in 1 1/2 years. I don't know whether to withhold food or feed it some McDonalds. Taking conventional cold medicine is not an option for me. Injestion will end one of two ways - I act like the Energizer Bunny on speed or I become a stoned, drooling mess. I choose to tough it out.

Speaking of McDonalds, is anyone else excited by the Big Mac Snack Wrap? Mcdonalds = heartburn, but I'm not afraid to suffer for a new Big Mac type goodie. For reals!

I should clarify "toughing it out", when it comes my cold fighting technique. What I really mean is I'm drinking gallons of tea and whining to anyone who will listen about how nasty and gross I feel. So far, its working. The snot dip factor has gone down a cup or two. Gallons of tea are great, but I'm making 4-5 trips to the bathroom per hour. Maybe that's where the snot is going....

That's a wrap, lovers. I'm gonna crawl back under the covers now.


  1. Not once is 27 years has JR gifted me with a pap smear.

  2. I've never managed to survive changing sides on the bed. I go crazy. Crazier. Whatevs.

    Also? My husband would DIE a slow and painful death if he ever gifted me with a pap. What a stupid idea.

  3. Feed the cold!!!

    Changing sides of the bed takes only about a week to get used to. Tried and tested.
