Still feeling under the weather and needing a little TLC, Finn and I declared yesterday, Spa Day.
We started by purchasing a device recommended by my friend Nicole, called the NoseFrida SnotSucker. It is absurd and a little disgusting, but it’s effective; so, who cares? Here’s how it works: I use my mouth on one end to provide suction, while the other end is at the entrance of his nostrils. I suck, and snot evacuates his nose and enters the vial. Don’t worry, there’s a filter to prevent snot from entering my mouth. That would be gross.
One chore I detest is clipping and filing my nails. It’s tedious. But it was time, so I decided to tackle Finn’s razor blade nails while I was at it. He agrees with me about this activity–no fun. At least this time I didn’t make him bleed; that was heart-wrenching!
After dinner, Finn fell asleep on Joey’s chest. While they were snoozing, I decided to take my friend Kayla’s advice: soak in a hot bath. She does this daily…maybe even twice a day. I haven’t taken a bath in years (I take showers, okay…I’m not filthy). I guess I never trusted the tub in the rented places we lived previously. Candles, bath salts and all…I indulged in every soaking minute, feeling like a queen.
