Puffs lotion tissues with Vicks is the bomb

Well I'm back from spring break. We had a wonderful time doing what ever we wanted pretty much when ever we wanted.

And while each day was packed full of fun stuff, the week didn't start out so great.

What ever is being stirred up by the constant breeze around here has found it's way into my sinus cavity.

I had the worst case of a allergies/head cold. I mean I was flat out miserable. I couldn't breathe and my eyes watered and itched at the same time. My face was starting to feel raw from all the rubbing and scratching.

The first day I tried the normal sinus medicine. Tylenol allergy/sinus. And when that failed me I went straight for the Zyrtec and Vicks.

I found this the other day when I was out shopping and I thought to my self I might need these but little did I know I would need them the next week.

All I can say is Puffs ROCK! Not only did the lotion soothe my nose but the smell of Vicks was like greeting a friend from my childhood. Well not really.

But I remember my mom would slather Vicks on my chest and a little on my nose at night when I was sick to help me sleep.

You know it's bad when you walk around your house carrying a box of tissues just so you can smell that sweet medicated smell that will clear your nasal passages for hours.


After three days of nearly overdosing my self on Zyrtec, Vicks, Advil, and maybe a glass of wine or three the pressure in my head started to ease up. And I was able to function more instead of sitting my couch watching more episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County while holding a Vicks scented tissue to my nose.

The rest of the week was busy. Wednesday was my birthday. And Hubs took me to the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo to see Rascal Flatts. But that is another post for another day.

We also took the kids to the Houston Zoo, again another post.

Now it's time to get back into the groove of things. I could use another week off. I mean really look at this weather.

Y'all have a great Monday!

So glad you are feeling better and that in spite of the sickness, had a good week! I LOVE Rascal Flatts!

This week is Spring Break here and it is in the 40's! You know, I live in the South! What is UP with this weather?? Cameron had a game Saturday and I was wearing a coat, had my heater and the wind blew constantly!! He left this morning for a tournament about 2 hours from here. We are going tomorrow for the games on Tuesday and Wednesday! I am hoping for SUN and warmer temps!!!

Have a good week!

I totally agree that Puffs with Vicks lotion is the bomb. I have a box sitting on my desk at work and love, love, love it!
