Happy Holidays

So...it's December 21! That means that (this year anyway) Hanukkah has passed, Christmas is on the way, New Year's Eve & Kwanzaa aresoon to follow!! This year I have learned, more than ever, that it truly IS about sharing time with family and beloved friends!! Make sure that during this holiday season you let everyone that you love KNOW that you love them! You don't have to buy expensive trinkets to show that love--my family is getting love, laughter...and some baked goods if I feel like it! Call someone, visit someone or send a card--handwritten...but an e-card will still be nice, if you have to go that way!

I named this post "cold season" for two reasons!
1) It's the season where it's starting to be cold! and

Last night, I was feeling extra "stuffy" in the nose area...and I was rummaging through my junk drawer--you know, the one that has everything!! It's the one in my room, not in the kitchen though! It has my extra medicine, cords for cell phones and whatnot and whatever else I throw in there! Well I found a jar of Vicks Vapo Rub...it looked like I'd had it a while! The poor jar was all beat and battered! But, maaan, I put some on my nose and it worked just like I remember back in the day!! Oh, it made me so happy!! I was breathing like a charm again...well, for about 5 minutes at least. I just kept re-applying!! Thank you VICKS!
