Image via WikipediaWe have added a few new items to our daily care. One of them is eye drops for Dear. He works with chemical fertilizer all day. And it flies in the air no matter what, getting a fine film all over him. Well I realized it was getting in his eyes too. Now he washes his eyes out a few times a day (normally at lunch and when he gets off). We found ROHTO Cooling Eye Drops that are safe for him to use regular. And they give a great sensation of relief to him, or so he has told me. I also love the lil slim bottle that fits right in his shirt pocket. Now there is no excuse from him that he can not carry some bulky bottle. I slipped ROHTO Ice eye drops in his lunch box too. These are good for helping with that horrid red eyes from irritation. It is great to have for him just in case too many of those chemicals are floating around.
It is also coming up on flu season. YUCK! I am so lucky that I get a flu shot every year. So does Dear. Granny M refuses to do so and last year College Girl got hers on campus. But we can have a lil help. AHCC (active hexose correlated compound) is suppose to help boost immunity against flu and should help with the defenses of the flu shot. We started adding this to our daily vitamins so we have a lil extra to fight the flu. I know that last year we had complete school districts closed down due to flu breakouts being so horrid. Our lil town would take just a lil to close us down if it really became bad around here.
I am having to now take medication because I am a 'pipe' lady. You know those commercials of people made from copper pipes that have a "leakage" issue. Mine is more that I feel like a puppy dog having to go mark my spot all over the place. I am a lil worried that with all of this I have a higher chance of UTIs. I like drinking cranberry juice but not in large quantity. It tends to tear up my tummy when I do. So instead I am taking Cstex Liquid Cranberry Complex every day. I actually use it to take my morning meds with. And no more upset tummy from too much acid in the juice.

It is packed with great benifits along with a way to help raise money for Breast Cancer awareness. With every pink lid collected and turned in they will donate ten cents. Now this adds up really fast. You can do it too. I have a great package from Yoplait and MyGetTogether. We have set up a party at Curves. We are collecting lids and recording who brings in the most. The winner will get all of the goodies we have collected. Yoplait gave us a $15 gift card, a pink bookmark, a shower self exam hanger, and coupons to share, Promise Me, a book authored by Nancy G. Brinker, the founder and CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. We also have a pink tote and a pink wine bottle opener from Sutter Home Wines. And remember, if you haven't already done so, visit the Hope Overlay tab on Sutter Home's Facebook page and see how we'll donate a dollar to breast cancer when you add a Sutter Home capsule to your Facebook profile picture. As always, check in with the Sutter Home for Hope website to keep up with their programs and events. Because until there's a cure, there's hope.
Oh remember I told you that College Girl was looking at a Special Someone. Well, it seems they have noticed that she is looking. Whew! This is so much fun to see her sprout into a woman this way. She was never one to date in her teens. But thankfully she has added Certain Dri to her morning routine. The deodorant she was using did not work all day. She would have to reapply. Now Certain Dri works and she is not having to worry. This is helping her become much more confident while trying to get to know her Special Someone.
Well those are our daily updates on taking care of ourselves. Have you added anything to your routine for the fall? Is there something that really works great that you want to share with us? Let me know! I do have to say I am so lucky to have had these items sent to me. They are greatly appreciated. But alas, as usual, no one sends money too. Ha Ha!
