Oh, the joys of new parenthood! Yes, my little blogger baby Simply Charming is having a bit of a problem. It seems other bloggers cannot come to visit him because when they do, they are stopped by a message saying its authors have deleted the account.

This mommy is hard at work trying to figure out a remedy so be patient little bloggers out there…..Simply Charming will be coming out soon (I hope.) In the meantime, Simply Charming is being pacified and hoping the future will not be to become the Phantom Blogger of WordPress.

Despite the setback….still writing and walking in Sunshine y’all!
A best friend loves you as no other with tender arms to hold you when everything seems so unbearable.
a best friend loves you even without a trace of makeup on.
A best friend loves you even when your hair has turned gray and the body has begun to sag.
a best friend loves you even though you have hurt them many times either with harsh words or careless attitude.
A best friend loves you even after many years have passed and all the pretense have faded and the only one left is YOU.
so why wouldn’t I confide my heart with my best friend?
Just recently on one of the more popular morning radio shows, the topic the DJ’s dealt with was Vicks Vapo
RumRub. (Oh, you were thinking rum too?!?)
Anyway, get in focus and listen to some of the uses people had with their love for Vicks VapoRub. By the way, for those who don’t know me, I love using Vicks! I use it everyday/night either around my nose or if suffering from a chest cold, nothing works better than a generous dose rubbed to chest and throat area and wrapped with a soft scarf. Ahhhhh, so soothing!
Anyway again…here are some interesting things about Vicks Vapo Rub:
Did you know……
- If you are coughing (hack, hack), before you retire for the night, rub some Vicks on bottom of your feet, put some soft socks on and by the next morning your cough should subside. (Personally I have not tried this yet but, if you have, let me know if this works!)
- What? You suffer from nail fungus? Well, it’s been said if you rub Vicks on that icky thing, you will find the icky gone. It, however, would take more than one application. Sorry, I didn’t hear how many applications you would need.
- A person actually put Vicks in both her ears, nostrils and of course, chest and throat area every time she suffered from nose and chest congestion. In her EARS! I didn’t think you could do it, but she does and then covers herself (head and all) with a blanket and sleeps like a warm baby! The next day finds her rested and ready to tackle a new day! (Let me know if this works will ya!)
- Pet problems? Fix it with Vicks! Cats will not scratch if they smell the aroma. It is best to leave an open bottle around areas you want to repel your pet from using the area as a restroom.
(I don’t know, my cat likes playing with my Vicks bottle; I have seen her trying to lick the sides on occasions!
I love VicksVapo Rub
Well, Vicks Kitty and I look forward to hearing other interesting ways you incorporate Vicks into you life!
“Home is a place not only of strong affections, but of entire unreserved; it is life’s undress rehearsal, its backroom, its dressing room, from which we go forth to more careful and guarded intercourse, leaving behind…cast-off and everyday clothing.”
Harriet Beecher Stowe quotes (American Writer, Philanthropist and Author author of the anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin, 1811-1896)
As Harriet Stowe beautifully wrote that “Home….is life’s undress rehearsal, its backroom”…..or backstage in theatre. Prior to a play, backstage usually is anything but boring but rather filled with actors rehearsing with nervous energy or others seemingly lost in quiet meditation as they slip into their character. My home is like being backstage with time either preparing for the next act or relaxing after a tough performance. My closet is the costume room and every morning I visit the mirror for my appointment with my makeup artist and hair stylist. (Oh, I so wish!) Rehearsals and study (of lines) are always tough but being home (backstage) is the only place I would like to be 24/7 to await the bright lights and applause of the next performance.
How about you? Do you enjoy the “backstage” called your home? Perhaps your “backstage” is a traveling one where you take shows on tours. How fun would that be! I would love to hear about your home (backstage!) As we say in theatre: Break a leg!
