You know you've reached meltdown mode when your husband says "Mo?" very quietly, and you answer with "Don't bother me right now" and he actually listens because he's scared of you this time.
Because of my cold, I bought a neti pot, which my sister has been raving about. And then I watched this enlightening demo and it made all the stuff I just wrote about go away temporarily.
Le sigh. Any tricks to rid the common cold and the mini meltdown?
