yes, the hallmark of allergic rhinitis ("allergies") is sinus congestion and a mild daytime cough. try some allergy meds, or ask your doc about a prescription for albuterol for the cough if you think the cough is worse at nighttime or feels spasm-y at all. many people have worse symptoms in the winter because they are cooped up indoors with stale air- dust mites, pet dander, low levels of mold, etc.- nothing dangerous but just enough to cause some annoyance. a chest xray would be like trying to kill an ant with an automatic rifle, if your symptoms aren't significant (fevers, shortness of breath, weight loss, coughing blood, debilitating cough, exposure to TB, ec.)

Except what that really means is "I'm going to be engaged in this project for six hours and ignore the kids, so they'll come looking for you while you work soon because they want attention.

Just go buy a 3 tier bookshelf and let each shelf be a "floor" of the dollhouse. You can cut pieces of cardboard and cover with "wallpaper" to fit in as room separators and paste in pictures of windows cut from decorating magazines. When the dollhouse phase passes you still have a bookshelf. [ Reply | More ]
