Two Things That Have Absolutely Nothing to Do With Each Other

1.  The sinus rinse  is by far the best thing I've ever done for my allergies.  I have been on about a million medications...Claritin, Allegra, Singulair...and nothing has worked as well as this.  Plus, it's the safest and most natural thing to do if you are pregnant or nursing, so it's the only thing I have really used in the last year.  If you've heard of the Neti Pot, it's a lot like that, but I have heard it's a bit easier to use.  I haven't tried the Neti Pot myself, but I can attest that the Sinus Rinse is pretty user-friendly.  Before I started using it about a year and 1/2 ago, I got sinus infections constantly from my allergies.  Now, I don't!  I can tell when I didn't do it one morning (I don't use it as much in the winter time unless I have a cold, but I'm using it daily now that it's allergy season), but I feel pretty good all day if I use it in the morning! 

2.  Does anyone else send their food to Leftover Land, only to be discovered one day--many days later--in the back of the fridge as some unidentifiable, mold-growing object?  Seriously, I don't know why we even save them.  I am the only one who eats leftovers, so anything I don't eat (like leftover chicken, beef, turkey, steak, etc.) just goes to waste. 
Why yes, I was in fact cleaning out my refridgerator this morning!

I am a regular neti pot user and I could not survive pregnancy without it. Glad you love the sinus rinse. I often wish that they had them for little kids because Barrett's sinuses are terrible all of the time.

As far as leftovers, I'm the only one who eats them in the house. So I just plan on eating it the next day for lunch. Rob, however, is scandalized by the idea of eating something other than pizza for 2 days in a row. Sheesh.
