Turns out I am not invincible

Lately I have been doing a lot of projects.

I have been doing a lot of this.


and this...


and I HAVE NOT been wearing one of these...


As a result today I feel like this...



Have been doing A LOT of this...



and even this...


That would be a Neti Pot people. And usually this has been my lifesaver. I have been able to stop taking allergy medicine because of it.

But today....it is not working for me.

I am so congested that when I poured the neti pot water in one side...NOTHING came out the other. So I have a gallon of water stuck in my head at the moment.

Now don't you feel better knowing that little tidbit about me? :)

So people PLEASE learn from my stupidity.

Wear a mask while sanding and spray painting or you too will have a ocean in your sinus cavity.

***************

Now I also wanted to thank everyone who told me what my junk find cabinet from last week.

Without you guys I would have never known what a barrister/lawyers bookcase.

You all are the bomb!

Thank you!

Since you all are so awesome I have another question for you.

A while back I showed you that I got this desk for free from Craigslist.


I think I am finally ready to do something with this desk. The problem that the top of the middle drawer has been sliced off.

Where there is usually a lip from the cabinet front to the drawer it is flat.


I put my finger there to try and show where it is flat.

Is there something out there that can help me form or mold a lip on this drawer?

Can't wait to hear what you all have for me with this...although I am a little more excited about breathing out of my nose again.

There is a wood molding product out there, I can't remember the name of it and it's all the way downstairs in the laundry room, but it's by the stains and such at Home Depot, it's in a container that has to be stored upside down. But, that stuff should work. Hope that helps if it makes any sense at all!

I feel bad posting next since my name isn't Kristi/y.
But I wanted to thank you for the reminder about sanding and spray painting!
I am going to be spray painting (weather permitting) tomorrow and didn't feel like going to get some masks, but now I will.
I pray you feel better soon.
Yes, Neti pots are awesome, but not if the salt water can't run out the other side-ouch!!
Rest, water and lots of chocolate *wink!

I love my neti pot! I had a facebook support group helping me out the first time I used it though. I was actually scared of the little blue plastic teapot-like contraption!!

I hope the water clears out of your sinus cavity soon.

Feel better soon!

You need Stainable Wood Filler by Minwax (by the stains) Elmer's (like the glue) makes one too, but it is NOT as good. Form the lip with the wood filler (it's like play Doh) let it dry then sand it into shape. If it's not perfect add some more, let it dry and reshape with 220 grit paper. :0)
