How Vicks VapoRub Saved My Life (last night)

I have been sick for what seems like ONE HUNDRED years.  It's nothing crazy like that pig flu but it still sucks bad. Basically I have a glorified head cold that never goes away.  I think it does...then the sniffling and the watery eyes make their return. On top of that, I have developed this cough that only comes at night.  It keeps me up.  All night.  Long.

The Chef left 3 days ago and I think I have slept for about 5 hours.  Last night I lost my mind. The kids haven't been sleeping well and I am, frankly, a hot hot mess.  I just kept coughing and coughing and coughing.  I had to do something so  I went on my brand new computer (thanks chef!) and searched for tips on how to make a night cough disappear.  As I googled my brains out I kept coming up on this site that swore putting Vick's VapoRub on your feet would make the cough disappear therefore allowing sleep.  Having tried everything (besides going to the doctor) I gave it a chance.  I slathered Vick's all over my feet (tweeting while doing so), put socks on, and closed my eyes.

I woke up 8 hours later to a grumpy 4 year old and a naked singing toddler.  Thank you Vicks VapoRub.  Thank you.
