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.
