Stick it in Your Ear

I wanted to tell you what happened to me the other day in hopes I can save it from happening to you. First of all, I am addicted to using Q-Tips. I thought it was an oddity but if you Google it, I am obviously not the only one. Most days I just use them once but there are occasions I will use them in the morning AND at night.

We recently ran out and Dave decided to buy some bargain brand and I was hesitant to use them but in a pinch, I needed something so I decided to use one. Well, apparently, I am rough on Q-tips because with the "bargain" swab, the cotton head came off IN MY EAR. I was freaking out!! What do I do? Should I call a neighbor? Can I get it out myself? What if it stuck? Well I took a deep breath, grabbed a pair of tweezers and fished the cotton out of my ear. Fortunately, I got it all out in one try but I was so worried it was too deep to get it all. Whew! Lesson learned, I will NOT use bargain brand swabs ever again!!!

Holding steady on the scale. I still need to pick a weekly weigh day. Now that things are settling down with my mom's situation, I can start focusing on my WL again. I had some blood work down last week when I went to the doctor and all my numbers were in range except for my cholesterol. There was a problem with the medication I was taking so I stopped taking it a few months ago. Well, now I am on another med to get that number in check. I am still wearing the soft cast until Nov. 17th so I can focus on other areas then my arms until then. Until next time...


  1. OK...I admit, I stick Q tips in my ear sometimes too. I KNOW you're not supposed to...but I do. Note to self: stick with the name brand! :) Have a great day Katie.

  2. That happened to my wife a few weeks ago...she kinda freaked out but I was able to play doctor and fished it out.

    Q-Tips rule!!! I got the same addiction.

  3. MIzz Katie-J, I'm just popping by to say hello! =) I hope you are BLESSED and doing oh so well! Keep those q-tips coming.. or going... or... idk. I can't stand it when my ears get clogged with itchiness. q-tips, here I come. =)

  4. Interesting...I wasn't aware of a Q-tip addiction, but totally can see it. I was into them for awhile, but had some issues and had to lay off on the ear cleaning a bit since it tends to impact more gunk than it gets out...oh well, glad you rescued yourself!

  5. oooh Im guilty of that addiction too.



I'd love to know what's on your mind...
