Qi Orthopedic Pillow

I don't know how many times I have talked about the pain I suffer in my back and neck. As you can imagine when I find a product that is said to be used to relieve pain I am always excited! Recently I was given the chance to review a product called the Qi Orthopedic Pillow. You may ask "How does QiPillow differ from ordinary pillows?" when researching I found many answers to this and thought I'd check them all out.
  • Support-"QiPillow is far more than an ordinary pillow. It provides scientifically tested orthopedic back support for people of all shapes and sizes." This seems very true :) You can inflate the pillow as big or small as you chose to. My husband, kids and I all have used this pillow and we have all enjoyed it. It is easy to inflate and deflate in just a couple of seconds and can go from person to person. Unless you are a germaphob lol.
  • "The QiPillow has been proven in a third party clinical study to help 91% of back pain sufferers relieve their back stiffness, pain and fatigue, and improve their sitting posture and comfort." Neat fact I suppose :) I can't tell you how many people it helps but it  does help my posture when used behind he back.
  • "Unlike ordinary pillows, QiPillow does not collapse under body weight and will help you to maintain the correct posture." This I found to be true as well. The pillow has very little "give" So if placed under your head or if you are laying with it under your back it will not collapse, keeping you aligned how you intended.

Why do you need to pay attention to their back health?
  • According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, 30% of American adults are afflicted by low back pain. That means if you know three people, one of them is probably in pain.  Americans spend $200 billion a year treating back pain.
  • According to the Workers Safety and Insurance Board, simply sitting – without proper support -- is the leading cause for back pain, second only to heavy weight lifting. 
  • Unsupported sitting is damaging your back each time you sit, at work, at home, in cars. 
The quality of this product is very good. I love the feel of the pillow and with three layers it is really durable. As I mentioned the valve where you inflate and deflate is easy to use, which is very important when you are in pain. The size was really good and was great for all uses. When my back was hurting really bad I deflated it a little and laid on the floor with it under the small of my back. After a few moments it really started to relieve some pain. I really recommend this pillow for everyone not just back pain sufferers. The pillow is 18" x 18" , and comes in camel or sage. The outer cover is made of Mirco-Suede and Engineered in Canada. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
