a love/hate relationship

Today was one of those ridiculously wonderful early spring days: warm enough for short sleeves, enough of a breeze to keep the temperature really nice. I love spring. I love the nicer weather, Easter, flowers blooming, grass coming back to life, baby animals, baseball...all that good stuff. On the other hand, I hate spring for what it does to me. Congestion, headaches, itchy eyes, happens every year, and leaves me wishing spring away.

Spring has been a little easier to handle, though, since this little guy came into my life:

My mom was introduced to the NetiPot several years ago and couldn't stop raving about it. She tried and tried to get me to try one, but hardheaded as I am, I wouldn't do it. She finally gave up and just bought me one. I tried it very reluctantly, and as grumpy as I get when my mom is right (FYI, she usually is), it's amazing. I'm hooked on the Neti. If I wouldn't look like a hardcore weirdo, I'd buy one for everyone I know.'s that good.


  1. My allergist "prescribed" one for me, too! It's not the blue pot thing, but a nasal spray bottle made by the same company, but I think the basic idea is the same. Definitely helps since I can't take decongestants while preggo.
    I love your blog design--SO cute!

  2. Thanks for the comment, AC! Yours was the first one :) I've actually graduated to the squirt bottle myself, but couldn't find a picture I liked. I love it!


Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
