Always have Nyquil in your medicine cabinet

I want to write a post but I am having a hard time coming up with something to write. My original idea was to research how many times a person should chew their food before swallowing. I gave up on that one because I wasn't able to find a reliable site. So, if anyone happens to know the answer, please let me know.

I started getting sick last night. Blake, Sadie and I ate at my favorite southern BBQ joint and then we drove in the rain through Provo Canyon. It was perfect timing because the sun was just starting to set so the lighting was beautiful. We came home, put Sadie to bed and I took a nap before working. After I finished working, I brushed my teeth, washed my face and took some Nyquil. I LOVE Nyquil. I can tolerate being sick if I get to take Nyquil. While I was pregnant, I couldn't take it and it was miserable. I got a cold during the 2nd trimester and it lasted about 2 weeks. No joke. Those 2 weeks weren't very fun. To clarify something, when I say 2 weeks, I'm talking about the amount of time it took to feel a tiny bit better. I don't think my nose has ever been so clogged. To make matters worse, I lost my taste for 3 weeks!!! That would be very hard for me to lose my sense of taste permanently. If I had to choose between my hearing and my taste, I just don't know which one I would pick. I love eating. I look forward to eating. I crave the smells, textures and tastes.

I'm feeling a little bit better tonight but it was a rough day. Just to give you an idea of how out of it I was, I put Sadie in the bath with her socks on! Poor girl. Luckily, with a little rest and H20, I should be back to myself in no time!

For those of you who don't know, we are moving in a week and a half. I am very excited. I don't know what we are going to do with all the space! Sadie will finally have her own room and Blake will have a room to call his office. I don't know who is more relieved, me or him. I like him working from home but the problem with our current situation is that our kitchen, family room, dining room and his office are all in the same room. It's too tempting to ask him questions or have him hold Sadie for a minute. I know it gets annoying for him. It's hard when I'm making dinner and I ask if he wants ice in his water and I get no reply. I have learned to wait about 2 minutes and he will eventually say, "Did you say something?" Oh, why can't men multi-task?

Well, I'm sorry this post makes no sense but if you are wondering why it's so random, it's because I took some Nyquil about 20 minutes ago and it's starting to kick in.

Yes, you're right -- this post is completely random and scattered. But I loved it!

I was never a fan of Nyquil. I hate medicine that makes me groggy. It's probably good for me, though, because it would force me to go to sleep. I dunno. I just don't like the feeling of not being able to control my brain. (Although I did enjoy being knocked out when I got my wisdom teeth pulled.)

I didn't know that you guys were moving. Where? Did you guys buy a house?How fun! I HATE moving, but I LOVE to move... ya know. The process stinks, but once you are settled in it is so fun!
