So many holiday parties, so many germs,
so much snot.

Neti Pot because it’s attractive? NO
Neti Pot because I want to feel like I’m drowning? NO
Neti Pot because I want the water to go in my nose, then down my throat? NO
Neti Pot because it’s amazing and makes you able to breathe? YES
…even if it’s only good for 30 minutes…

Travel Thoughts – NYC

Normally I would list all my thoughts on my trip this weekend, but there were just too many and you would get tired of reading them and be over me. And un-follow me. Well, if you even follow me to begin with…

NYC was amazing, as always. It was cold, but actually not as bad as I had anticipated. I got to stay with my friend, Annie, who I danced with in college, catch up with her, and hang with our friend, Jeff who is Annie’s BFF and also went to the same college.
My course was a bit crazy Friday but turned out great as usual. It was also located right across the street from a very large H & M. I was this close to going over on our lunch break, but knew I’d probably be in there way too long, so I resisted. Besides, I need to shop for Christmas gifts, not things for myself.
I got to see my friend, Marcus who I’ve told you about before. We were supposed to go out dancing but since I was sick, I could barely do anything so we didn’t. I’m sorry, Marcus! I’m also sorry I didn’t text you when I got back home that night (he worries about me and the subway alone). I DID text you, I just didn’t send the text. I was tired!
And thank you to my new iPhone app, iTrans NYC. It made navigating the city subways and buses way easy and I’m pretty sure I looked like a local… not a confused tourist with a perplexed look on her face, trying to decide which train to take and which side of the platform to stand on. Oh yes. Call me a New Yorker. Pshaw.
No shopping or shows as it was a very quick trip. I had to get back for a wedding last night.
P.S. You’ve got a very fun wedding dance video coming soon!

I’m really trying to rest. In all aspects of the word. I’ve got to fly to NYC tomorrow to teach an 8 hour TRX course on Friday. Plus I want to shop. I HAVE to be better by then.
I know I’ve got to stop moving and give my body the chill time it needs to take down these bitches (viral bitches). So I’m doing everything in my power to stay still. It’s hard. But I’m going to do it. If I don’t, I’ll be sick even longer. So this is me surrendering. All clients have been cancelled, fluids have been consumed, medicine taken, and I’m am in bed with Tango. I should be getting better any second…
I hope everybody else is having a healthy, productive day. Send your juju to me! : )

Snow day…

I received this photo from my husband last night on my way home from Cincinnati. (There was a blizzard during my TRX course so driving home was “fun”. And when I say “fun”, I mean “miserable”.) But this photo made it better. He wrote it in the snow while taking Tango out.

I also got sick this weekend so I’ve had to cancel all my clients today. This is “fun” too.
The actual fun in all this is that today is a snow day for all the school kids, AND my husband stayed home with me, made me breakfast and brought it to me in bed, and then watched Julie and Julia* with me. He’s the best. Makes being sick not so bad… and our morning date was fun. The real fun, not the fun in quotations.
This is also Conrad’s first snow day. (Poor thing has never had one since he grew up in SoCal.) He’s liking it so far…
*SUCH a good movie. I wish I’d read the book.
