I am glad today is Saturday so I don’t have to go to work. I woke up this morning with a sinus headache and I don’t really want to do anything except relax around the house today. One of my friends said I should try a neti pot to clear my sinuses and sent me a video of someone demonstrating how to use it. It’s basically a little cup that you pour into your nose as you tilt your head and the water comes out the other nostril. The video actually made me laugh a little because it seemed so crazy.
I usually will take some medicine and take it easy when I have a headache. Today I’m going to just relax for most of the day and play catch up with the TV shows I’ve recorded. I really don’t watch that many TV shows, and sadly I seem to be liking reality shows more and more. I don’t want to like them but I think I’m getting sucked in, and I’d say over 50% of the shows I record are reality shows. I especially like the home renovation ones, and I’m a huge fan of Faceoff (the makeup special effects one) and the fashion shows. I’m such a girl.
Every summer my allergies act up a bit. It’s so random, though, like one day I’ll feel fine and the next day I’ll be sneezing all the time. I think that’s what causes my sinus headaches, too. Actually, speaking of allergies, I recently read that local honey, meaning honey produced locally as opposed to imported from somewhere else, is supposed to be helpful for allergies. I guess it has to do with the pollen or something. I should see if I can find some around here because usually I just buy my honey at the grocery store and I’m sure that’s imported from somewhere else. In fact, I also recently read that much of the “honey” that’s sold isn’t even actually honey at all, but is some fake sugary thing instead.
Well I need to finish up and go make some tea and start my marathon of recorded reality TV shows. If I feel better later I need to do some shopping; I’ve been long overdue to buy some new bedsheets for months now. I want to get some lighter sheets since it’s summer now because the ones I have now are the ones I got last winter.
