Sometimes it's just so hard to tell if a runny nose or aches are a sign you've caught a cold or if you're suffering from seasonal allergies. Having never suffered from allergies until later in life, I often think of how many times I've 'treated' myself for a cold when it was actually allergy symptoms I was experiencing!
With summer right around the corner, no one wants to be sidelined by a pesky cold or allergy, but it's important to find out what exactly is behind the symptoms. Cold-Eeze, makers of the #1 pharmacist recommended zinc cold remedy, has sent along this handy chart to help us figure out that ever tricky question of "cold....or allergies??"
I've actually printed out a copy of this and attached it to the inside of our medicine cabinet as a handy reference!
On a side note: I feel like I've been away forever - I was in L.A. for a week and just got back from Key West - where I discovered a "fixer upper" is going to take us years to fix up doing it ourselves --- but I like a good adventure, so this should be fun....or rage-fueled. We'll see. I came home with the determination to watch every DIY house renovation show I and soak up everything I can...and don't they make it look sooooooooo easy in a tidy half hour tv episode? I never see sweat stains the size of Pittsburgh under their arms......or hear a string of every cuss word known to man (and a few new ones) spill out of their mouths!! I also got my first blood blister on my finger....which, two weeks later, I still nibble at thinking it is some sort of blueberry remnant, despite the fact I haven't eaten any blueberries.
I also have discovered the wonderful workshops Home Depot gives, which I believe will be infinitely helpful --- things like installing tile, drywall, painting - and fun things like building planters, outdoor serving stations, and more.......and they're free!! I have to say, I'm pretty confident in my toilet installation skills now!
So that's what's been going on here....on the blog front, I've got some great reviews and a couple of giveaways coming up in the next week, so stay tuned!!
Wishing you all a healthy and cold-free summer!
