I got up first, got dressed and settled in for a cup of coffee and the news. That's when my day took a dramatic turn. My daughter got up and said she had a headache and she was all stuffy. I thought I better go get her some over-the-counter cold medicine. Okay, I said to myself, this is the only thing I am doing today! I got in the car, pushed the button to open the garage door and ... nothing. It wouldn't open. How could this happen? It was only, let's see, 18 years old. Here is where I sighed heavily and went back into the house. I was going to have to call a repairman tomorrow. But not today. Today was the day I was going to do nothing at all.

I went into my daughter's room and told her I was out of cold medicine and the garage door was broken. Her little eyes looked at me and she tried to snort and inhaled a large amount of snot. My do nothing day was looking bleak, but I'm not a quitter so I thought about it. It didn't take long before I realized exactly what I needed to do. I didn't need to go anywhere today to help my breathing-out-of-her-mouth-because-of-the-snot (her words) daughter. I grabbed the Kleenex and handed it to her. I told her to give me a minute and zipped out of the room to put on my Super Mom Cape (in a really cool pink).

I returned with my ZAQ Noor Diffuser ready to go with one of my favorites, peppermint essential oil. It's 100% pure and I have to admit, I absolutely love it. This pyramid-shaped powerhouse immediately began to diffuse the wonderful scent of peppermint into her room. She loved the lights at the top as they changed color and the light mist that cast itself into the air, releasing the wonderful, fulfilling scent of peppermint. I left to finish my coffee and still trying to hold on to my day of do-nothingness.

I returned to her room about 20 minutes later. My Noor was doing its wonderful work. She was sound to sleep and, gasp, breathing out of her nose just fine. I knew I didn't need to make any trip to the store to help her out. My ZAQ Noor Diffuser and peppermint essential oil saved the day! I wonder why ZAQ doesn't make a special cape for their products?

Now, to finish my day of doing nothing. But first, I guess I'd better call about that garage door. It has to be fixed right away. Tomorrow I will have to do something!
