First Time

8 Tue, 2011 § 9 Comments

Always a little awkward.

Often messy.

Never quite plays out like you imagine…

& I’m sure I look ridiculous.

But that final release…


I can finally breathe.



Do you neti?

    I don’t neti – the whole concept freaks me out a little, although I’ve heard good things about it. I could actually use it right now, I’m getting congested – stress is beating down on my immune system lately 😦
    Glad you can breathe!

      I was scared last night — afraid I would drown myself — but Dave reminded me I could just stop at any time, & I’d probably live. 😉 It was kind of weird, but it worked!

  • Natalie says:

    No and it scares me to death! I’ve heard it’s helpful but I am totally afraid I’ll drown. Was this your first time? Did it really help???

    • Allie says:

      I was scared of that too!
      This was my first time, & it definitely helped…though I need to get better at doing it because I could taste the salt! 😛

    hahaha yes! I’m a neti fanatic…have you seen my neti youtube vid?? I’m a bit crazy..

    • Allie says:

      I tried to find your video to link! I was going to include a bit about some people even liking to video it. 😉 Alas I could not locate your video. 😦 Link it — anyone willing to video this — I want to see that!

    Hi! I saw a comment you left on faith’s blog mentioning local eggs. I live in slc and would love to know where you recommend getting them. I’m so glad I found your blog, very neat!
    Thanks, Christie

      Hi Christie! I’m glad you decided to swing on by. 🙂 I lucked out & got eggs from my spinning instructor at Lion’s Rec Center in Holiday. There are SO many people with chickens in SLC though. Just start asking around. I know you can pick up local eggs at a few locations like Rico’s [near Trolley Square]. Farmer’s Markets are usually good too or CSAs. I will ask some of my friends & get back to you if I get any good leads!
      How long have you been in SLC? We just moved away in October.

    • Allie says:

      My friend Beth should be emailing you [to the address linked here] soon to help with your eggs needs. 🙂
      Hope you don’t mind.
