Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

Last whine of the night, I promise
Albuterol tastes nasty! Flar told me that was what's in his red inhaler. bleh.

Just came back to bed after a brief family gathering in the family room. Who the heck designed tornado sirens to sound like the wind blowing? Come, on! Okay, so maybe it's the effect of living this far away from city center. Whatever. I've worn myself out again, climbing upstairs to ask Flar whether he thought it was the wind or the sirens, then getting the boys to come downstairs.

I'm very good at sounding calm during a tornado warning WHEN I CAN'T TAKE IN A COMPLETE BREATH! Sorry, this is the only place I can yell right now.

No local impact. We muted the TV a few times to listen to the storm, but it was only windy rain, no freight trains. Channel 27 has prettier radar, but the Channel 18 had a more reliable power supply for their transmitter.

The dogs like tornado warnings. More couch time. Flood was particularly stubborn about going back into the crate.

you get used to that, too

I remember when Mick kissed me after a "puff", and complained that I tasted like butane. I'd stopped noticing it years ago. I don't think I've ever had it in a red inhaler, but it might be one of the "non-CFCs" asthmatic-killers that I've been avoiding.
Yep - stairs are a BAD thing when you can't breathe...at least you have a bed, kitchen and bath all on one floor.
I don't miss tornado weather. I'm glad that one missed you. Hugs!

Re: you get used to that, too

It may be a free sample, too. I've lost track of which of Flar's new meds are temporary and which are continuing. Lately, we've been getting more free samples out of our doc. It matters more for me and the boys than Flar -- his KY Access coverage is better than our Anthem. Sigh.

Re: you get used to that, too

I know that my last albuterol in the non-CFC format was in a red inhaler, so I assume it's probably the same. My new inhaler (Xopenex) is blue. And works better as non-CFC inhaler than albuterol ever did.

Ooh...so that's why I'm not seeing very many LJs posted???

*happy we don't get tornadoes where we live*

*keeps fingers crossed for everyone*
