What Do You Know?

I´m one of those people who just looks at someone with pinkeye and--BAM--I´ve got it myself.

I was 23 the first time I had it, and thanks to my insurance, wasn´t able to get to the doctor in well over 24 hours.  When the doctor finally saw me, she took at step back and said, "Wow--we should take your picture!  You´re the poster child for pinkeye."

So last Thursday when Clara woke up and her eyes were just about glued together, I knew we were in for a long weekend.

However, I had a new trick up my sleeve.

See, the last time I went to the doctor with pinkeye, he asked me, "what have you already tried to get rid of it?"  I was baffled.  What had I already tried?  Dude--you´re supposed to give me the medicine to get rid of it.  He did.  It disappeared.

But then I got pinkeye again while visiting my mother-in-law.  Instead of immediately waltzing off to a clinic, she suggested concentrated chamomile tea.  My husband has always cleaned the kids´ eyes out with this whenever they had anything remotely suspicious.  So I gave it a whirl.

48 hours later, the pinkeye was gone.  Huh.

We tried it again this past weekend.  No more pinkeye!


What do you know?  Fewer antibiotics for this lady in the future,   that´s for sure!

Hi Jill,
My name is Natalie Sullivan and I'm casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We'd love to film in Mexico and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The expats on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. They must also speak English fluently and can be buyers or renters for their homes. If you'd like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7717 or skype me at natalieesullivan. You can also email me at nataliesullivan@leopardusa.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.
