Quick Takes (Non-Friday edition)

1. I'm having a terrible time with nosebleeds right now, especially since it's getting cooler and drier.  My ears are also having issues too.  I'm not sick really, so there's not much I can do.  I have my humidifier, but I'm not sure how much it's helping.

2. I was at the grocery store today, and the cashier asked if I was pregnant.  That's the first time that I have been asked if I was pregnant.

3. We are currently looking for a new (well, really a preowned) car.  My current car is a 2001 Ci.vic with almost 180,000 miles and D has a 1999 F-150 with about 125,000 miles, so we are going to get something that has a lot less miles (but keep both of our current vehicles).  I'm probably going to get an Ac.cord or a Ca.mry that's 2007 or 2008.  D's not thrilled about getting a car note but we have a good down payment from my parents buying D's car for my little brother to drive back to school after his accident this summer.


  1. 1-is it pointed directly at your face at night? I found that that makes a huge difference.


  2. Sorry to hear about your nosebleeds :( I'm sure that is no fun at all. That's exciting though that someone commented on your bump. :) On the car thing I'd say stick with Honda...I love love love my CR-V!! :)

  3. I have insane allergies. Always have. One thing that helps with the nosebleeds and dry feeling is to put a little vasaline on a q-tip and just run it aroundthe rim of each nostril. Make sure you get a little on the inside. It takes a little getting used to but it really helps.


    New car shopping is stressful. We bought a new car for me this time last year. We hadn't had a car payment the entire time we were married so it was hard to want to add that expense. I'm glad we did though! Good luck!

  4. My dh has been saving for a new car too...we'll soon have to go down that road since both of our current vehicles are getting hefty in the mileage area...maybe now that I have a job...we can look into that more. :)

  5. #1... that sucks.

    #2... that is very exciting!!!!!

    #3.... good luck with the car. I am not a car person, but I will pray it goes well!

    Can't believe how close you are getting to meeting your little one!

  6. Sorry about the nosebleeds :( Yay for being asked!!! Snicks and I were contemplating a car purchase, too, and the camry is at the top of our list. I think we're going to wait one more year (our cars are at 90K and 115K). Can't wait to see what you get.

  7. No advice about the nosebleeds, but sorry to hear that. Dh and I both needed new cars when baby came and that was stressful, but we are very happy with our choices. Mine is a 2008 Accord and love it! It (and the civic) can handle those kind of miles and I envision Charlie driving it one day (and being embarrassed by its age) :)
