  1. NYQUIL helped me rest so much when I had the flu illness several weeks ago. Lot's of fluids etc... I have a very hard time resting and sleeping when I'm that sick but had never tried Nyquil until then,
  2. Have any of you tried this? I picked up a free sample packet for DH at the health food store that had 2 capsules in it. He thought he was supposed to take the packet instead of just one. He was snoozing within 30 mins and is now snoring. He normally wakes up at 4:30 every night unable to go back to sleep. This should be interesting to see how this affects his sleep. He has a VERY high tolerance to medication so I'm shocked it put him out like that. Any experience?
  3. Be careful with foods that have been double dipped in. If someone has spread peanut butter on wheat bread and then put knife back in jar to get more. Things like this are important to be very careful with. A lot of chocolate bars are fine, but if you get the seasonal or holiday shaped ones they are not gluten free. Example would be regular peanut butter cups are fine, but if you get the pumpkin or Christmas tree shaped ones they're not GF.
  4. We have 3 acres in the country and they have destroyed our property and mulch beds. Even having a big German Shepherd doesn't keep them away. I just shake my head when I look out at the mess they've made. We tried the bombs and that didn't work. We also tried the metal traps with no luck.
  5. Yes, my DD took that once and I agree.
  6. I'll take OTC and natural suggestions. Just let me know what helps you just get through it. I'm currently taking NyQuil. BTW, this started last Weds if that matters.
  7. This has messed me up so bad a couple of times. I went on a business trip over 20 years ago and forgot to pack my personal shower soap so I used the hotel soap. By the time my flight got back in town a couple days later I thought I was going to die! It's like flipping a light switch and the pain is so bad you could scream when trying to go. Hugs! But I will say I have not had one since because I NEVER switch my soap or laundry products etc... Hope you're feeling better!
  8. Have you switched shower soaps recently, fabric softener or detergent etc?? I use Dr. Bronner's Baby castille soap and nothing else. Unscented laundry detergent and no fabric softener.
  9. I was trying to find this info on the website but's it's vague on packaging information. Do the bars say "may contain tree nuts"? My DD is allergic to almonds so I avoid processed foods that say this. I'm specifically wanting to know about the peanut butter dark chocolate chip. Thanks!
  10. One of the clients that came in for reconstructive surgery raised a baby raccoon for years. Then one day out of nowhere it attacked her face. You just never know with animals I guess. And do y'all remember that story of the couple walking their baby girl in a stroller and a raccoon came running out and attacked her face? It ripped her nose completely off and did other damage. It was just so awful.
  11. They're not cute at all. Vicious and will rip your face off. My DH works with a facial plastic surgeon and I know some pretty bad stories.
  12. I've had the flu several times in my life so I know what it's like. I've had high fever today, terrible body aches, no appetite and my chest feels tight. First week of Oct is the earliest I've come down with the flu. Is it even possible to have it this early. One of my boys is coming down with it tonight too and I doubt will make it to school tomorrow. His twin brother was really sick 2 weeks ago with this. I took my DD to her 16 year old check up Monday and I'm wondering if I picked it up there.
  13. How can he do allergy testing if you're on allergy medication?? My DD had to be off all allergy meds for at least two weeks before they would test her. Even other OTC can interfere with the results.
  14. My 16 year old DD wears the really tight jeans but I'm ok with it and it's what she likes to wear. 🙂
  15. My boys will be sophomores and we're considering homeschooling again. They homeschooled K-5 and have been in PS the last 4 years. I definitely want an accredited program just in case they want to go back to PS. We live in one of the top districts in our state and it's a really great school. I'm looking for an online program that I would have very little involvement. A program that will do the grading and offer any assistance for questions they may have. Options? TIA!
  16. My daughter has been wearing Birkenstocks and they have started to rub a callous on her foot. What's the best treatment to make it go away? I have various essential oils if those might help?
  17. There was a baby bat laying on the floor in the dorm room my boys stayed in. They thought the first couple of nights that it was just a piece of cloth or lint on the floor. It never moved or changed positions. Then the last night they said it scooted across the floor a little bit and went under the desk, and then scooted over to a hole behind an a/c vent in the wall. They said it was unable to fly etc.. Their beds were really high off the ground, and they didn't come in and go to sleep until 4am each night and back up by 7am. Once they told an adult about it, a professional company came in and was tearing out walls trying to find the bat, which they never did. So the health department called to tell me since they were exposed they had to recommend we see their dr and discuss treatment. A friend of theirs spent one night in the room and his mom doesn't think it was a big deal, and is not going to do anything about it. After talking with the nurse at their doctors office, she doesn't see any reason they would need vaccinated. She said it would be different if it could fly around the room.
  18. Please tell me what to expect. My twin boys slept in a dorm room on a church trip that had a bat in it. The company that was called in could not capture or find it, so now the health department has contacted me and advised getting with their doctor to start the vaccine treatment. What should I expect? Please tell me no side effects from the shots. I'm really nervous about this situation.
  19. I was probably the same age and I LOVED those lamps. I thought they were so beautiful and wanted my mom to get me one LOL. It just looked so elegant to me and I would stare at them whenever we were at a store that had them.
  20. Laundry room cabinet in clear shoebox containers.
  21. That is very exciting! You'll have to share details.
  22. There is the sensi mist which is unscented. The regular one has a terrible scent for sure! I personally can't do Flonase because it gives me bad headaches which I don't normally ever get. I have to use Nasacort instead. But the Nasacort gives my DH bad headaches and he had to switch to Flonase.
  23. I tip 20% at the nail salon, hair salon, and dining out. If I get bad service at a restaurant I will deduct some.
