1. My New Purse
I can't reveal my sources, but I know someone who knows someone who can get a killer deal on designer purses. This is the latest addition to my collection, and it might just be my favorite. I think it's super cute and it fits perfectly under my arm, but more importantly, it's large enough to carry all my personal junk plus a couple diapers and some wipes. No more hauling around a purse and a diaper bag!
Who am I kidding, the real reason I wanted a big purse is because I'm hoping to use it to smuggle a family of squirrell monkeys into the country. I'll let you know how that works out.
2. Hypertonic Saline
I've only recently been able to use Hypertonic Saline. I experienced terribly painful bronchiospasms the first several times I tried using it, but during my hospitalization in December we tried again and Voila! I suddenly tolerated it fine. There are a lot of meds I take that don't make me feel noticeably different -- I simply have to trust that they're working. But I honestly feel a difference when I miss even one treatment with HS. I feel like it's really been helping and I guess I'll find out for sure later today (clinic appointment this afternoon).

5. "Giving the Business"
There's been a ridiculous amount of business-giving since the phrase caught my fancy a few days ago. What exactly is giving the business, you ask? Well, it's open to interepretation, but in our house it goes a little something like this:
I gave Adam the business about leaving his dirty socks on the floor again. In return, he gave me the business over losing my keys again. The two most commonly asked questions in our house are "what did I do with my keys?" and "have you seen my phone?". I can't even tell you how much business I'm given over this.
Morgan gave me the business for attempting to put her shoes on yesterday (the nerve of some people). She's at the stage where she wants to do it herself, but gets frustrated because she still lacks some of the motor skills required to do so. I have to wait until she asks for my help because the business is definitely given if I try to touch her shoes before she's ready.
I just realized I need to give a certain year-and-a-half old the business for licking the TV screen again. If you'll excuse me...
