Today I Have A Sore Throat.

I'm not sick.  I've got allergies.  Which causes sniffles.  Which causes drainage down the back of my throat (tmi?).  Hence, the sore throat.  It was hard to sleep last night with all the ticklish, scratchy, cough-inducing rawness going on back there.  I tried cough drops.  I tried lemon tea with honey.  The cough drops did zip-diddly-squat (that means nothing).  The tea was temporarily helpful.  Do you have any suggestions?  I'll spare you and refrain from posting a pick of my tonsils.  **chuckle**

Other than that, I've been busy with the auction I had going on Facebook, filling sugar scrub sample orders, chasing rascally girls, making waffles, cleaning occasionally, reading when I get a chance, laundry (of course), enjoying the sun (FINALLY!!!), and doing a bit of gardening (a very little bit).

Now, to explain the picture.  It has nothing to do with allergies.  I am participating in the Paper Mama's Photo Challenge this week.  It was taken in June of 2009.  Ash's first ever swim.  The theme of the challenge is Friends and this photo works for two reasons.  Ash and her daddy are great friends and Ash also considers water (and dirt, but we'll save that for another challenge) to be friend as well.  :)

First Swim
(I know, it's so big that poor Tony has words on his face, but Ash's splashed, funny face is so cute and deserves to be shown in a bigger pic, right?  Right.)

I think the Neti Pot helps. I know it goes through your sinuses and nose, but in the long run it helps over all! Milk and sugar are the worst to consume. They build mucus. I've had allergies my whole life. My insurance won't cover them because it's a precondition with my independent insurance.

I can't wait to get my new shirt!
Hope your throat feels better soon. Did you try gargling warm salt water?
Good luck on the photo challenge!!!!
