SPICY MINOR MEDICAL FIX

SPICY MED FIX

The older I get, the more meds and the more vitamin supplements the doctors tell me to take.  It’s a good thing I’m healthy.  I’d hate to see how many pills they’d have me taking if I had a medical problem!

I’ve been keeping my pill bottles in a round cardboard box for awhile.  (I have to keep them all in one place, so that I won’t forget one~another indication of my age).  In addition to not being very attractive, the cardboard box seemed to shrink!  Okay, maybe the pills got bigger; or the bottles got bigger; or my doctor added more pills to match the number of birthdays I had celebrated. Whatever the cause, the box suddenly became too small.  (You’ll notice that I couldn’t even close the lid.)

BEFORE

I looked around the house for a container that would accommodate all of my meds, I spotted a spice box that I had purchased (new, in the box) for $1.00 at a yard sale.  I didn’t buy it because I needed spice storage~ I bought it because I liked the roosters painted on each side of the box.  I had been using it as a platform for one of my roosters, but the spice bottles remained empty.  spice rack whole

Looking at these BIG supplements, you might think that I am a horse.  I do need to lose some weight, but I assure you, I am NOT a horse!  (They do make a colorful picture though.  I know ~ it’s really sad when a blogger is pleased because her medications make a colorful photo!)

Keys to my health?

I like my spicy minor medical fix much better than my old cardboard box.

Aren’t you glad you stopped by to see my medications?  If a blogger is posting her meds, you know she is someone who has an exciting life!  Thanks so much for visiting this overly-medicated blogger!  laurie
