I just don't know if I can possibly shove ANY MORE vaseline up my nose??!! It is so damn DRY outside and yes.....I understand that it's winter. But for gawwwd's sake, I think I'm going to have to figure out a way to attach my big 'ole jar of vaseline to my body somehow. A necklace perhaps?
Let me stop to say *I apologize* to all those offended by my use of a petroleum product. (Sorry Nettie). I'm sure there is some fabulous organic, politically correct moisture-giving product but I've simply not found it. And until then, I will be using big globs of gooey vaseline to soften the crusty, bloody snot in my nose.
And yes.........I'm using a humidifier, and saline nose spray, and drinking lots of water.
On to family issues. This week I've talked to my dad (& his doctor), and both my sisters more times than I can count. (The cell phone bill is going to be scary; we're all in different cities). I love my family, but of course they're MY family so it's exhausting. And because Nov and Dec includes a lot of family time, it seems not-quite-right that we're still...........involved.
It just happens that my sister who lives in Mexico has come for a visit and that's great; she hasn't been here for years. But there are schedules to coordinate, train trips and driving schedules to figure out. (I have no idea how I ever had time for an 8-5 gig).
So the reason I'm talking to my dad's doctor is because he had a fainting spell while I was visiting him at Xmas. It was the 3rd one in10 yrs. He was sitting down when he passed out so it was a matter of keeping him in his chair and talking to 911 at the same time. I was of course totally freaked out and I MADE him go to the ER. He checked himself out against dr's orders and said he felt "great". But the ER docs had to report it to the DMV and his license was suspended as of today. He told me to just “shoot him” if he can’t get his license back.
Let me just say: my sisters and my dad and I are all HIGH-MAINTENANCE. We are opinionated, neurotic, self-centered little shits. 2 Capricorns, a Gemini, & a Scorpian. There are no Pisces here. AND I live with a Gemini and another Capricorn. I get no relief. Speaking of...........my nose is getting crusty again. I've gotta go find my vaseline.
