Allergies. I don’t like that word. And I don’t like how I feel right now either. The teenager started in on Friday morning. I thought she would snap out of it and took her to the garage sale anyway. Took her back home after lunch and sent her to bed then went back to the garage sale. I knew it was allergies that started it for her, it had been so windy the 2 days we’d already spent selling stuff. And I was aggrivated that I always seem to forget to start the allergy meds early in the spring. I was feeling fine at the time. And do you think it crossed my mind to start the allergy meds myself?? Of course not. That would be too responsible. So Saturday morning I got up with my throat starting to hurt. By the end of the day it was burning. Advil cold and sinus and MucinexD have been my very close friends the past 2 days. Tonight I feel achy, cold and my skin hurts. Time for another long soak in the tub. A hot tub has been moved to the ‘necessity’ list. And allergy meds HAVE to be started no later than the first of April. Why does it take feeling like this to make me remember?? Oh the joys of living in Ohio – allergy valley.
I’m off for a long hot soak, more advil and as much sleep as I can manage to get. Hopefully I will be back to my old self by morning – I’ve got a busy week ahead. Garage sale to sort and get cleaned up, prom dresses to alter, a chair to slipcover, and a homeschool convention to prepare for. Say a prayer for me if you have the time!
