This morning I had the unpleasant experience of laying in bed asleep, and being conscious enough to hear my body snoring. I spent quite a bit of time listening to it, and it wasn't so much "snoring" as it was "making snoring-like sounds because I was congested". Well, that's what I kept trying to tell myself.

Today was one of my usual "grocery run" days, so I picked up some saline spray for the nose, and I'll try doing the Neti-pot thing tonight before going to bed. On the drive I noticed that my ears are also congested, so I picked up some Mucinex as well. I used to take Zyrtec on a regular basis, but that makes me tired, so I don't take it unless I'm really having an allergic reaction to something (like grass, cats, mold, mildew, or milkweed, my known allergies).

No telling if I'll be aware enough tonight to listen to my body snore, but I'll give these things a try, and see what happens.
