Life Is Just So Daily

Leave me Alone.


My head feels like it is going to explode from allergies.

I think that Allegra is officially useless. I feel horrible.
Or, maybe it's an incredibly powerful drug, and I would feel 8 million times worse if I weren't on it.

I don't know.

I just know that I'm sneezy, and coughy (is that a word???), and my eyes feel like they are going to pop out, and my ears feel like they are being slowly pushed inside out from the pressure of my brain being coated with useless snot.

Everytime I bend down to pick something up, I feel like the inner contents of my skull are sloshing around slowly, and it hurts.

Other than is suuuuu-per.

We had a play-date today with Stephanie & Justin. Justin's only seven and a half months old, so he wasn't much up for playing....but Gage was so sweet & gentle with him. We moms had the kids in the strollers & made a few laps around the park. Justin was so content to just watch Gage, and at one point, Gage was softly singing to him. It was very sweet. Justin loved the baby swings, and the boys had a great time.

So, I was outdoors for HOURS today, which is what really exacerbated this whole allergy thing. I walked over 2 miles today. My hiney muscles are sore! Some parts of the trip to the park are hilly, so I worked those gluts!

AAAAND: the new furniture came today. Lovin' it. Lovin' it.
We don't have to repaint in here. It all looks really nice together. But, we've got to get new living room window treatments. I've got the white wood blinds to put up, but they need curtains in between because it just doesn't look right otherwise. It's 4 windows wide, just needs curtains. I haven't exactly found what I want yet, but I'm pretty flexible. I'm sure I'll find something soon. OR, maybe I'll make some. I want a sewing machine for my we'll see. I should probably buy curtains, and as far as sewing goes---start out with something...smaller.

Happy Wednesday.
I'll be popping Benadryl soon & taking my hiney to bed.

I'm sorry your allergies are so bad. Allegra never worked for me. Zyrtec was the best of the prescriptions(and now non-prescriptions I guess), but I have to supplement it Benadryl. Zicam, the allergy spray, is actually pretty helpful at certain times, so maybe that would help? They also have a sinus one.
As for the sewing, curtains could actually be a pretty easy thing to start sewing with, because you should only be sewing in straight lines, no curves. I know there are several different styles of patterns for curtains. Glad you like your new decor!

I'm not sure if it was allergies that I was having troubles with or a kickass cold, but I got doped up on some nyquil for a day or two and I feel great again. Pollen sucks.

I'm so sorry! I take Zyrtec, but I suspect that's why I'm so sleepy all day.

Where can I get me one of those tissue dispensers?

I have a sewing machine, and I have no idea how to use it. Hope you have someone to give you lessons!

Allergra did not work for me. Zyrtec did not work for me. I just got a new 'script for Xyzan (or something like that).

Did Allegra used to work for you? With my son, it worked for a while and then just...stopped.

May you feel better tomorrow.

Loved the pic by the way!

allergies are the worst - take care!

Everyone's allergies are worse here (in Canada) since hazardous chemicals to kill weeds have been banned. Just read an article about acupuncture reducing allergy suffering. Might want to give it a try. It's helping my back and I used to be such a skeptic.

I am so sorry that your allergies are so awful. Hope you get some relief soon. Can't wait to see pics of your new decor!

Lainey is that you in the picture? If not that woman has an uncanny resemblance to you. Allergies are awful. Hope you feel better soon.

I thought my allergies were acting much worse for the last week, then I thought it was a cold. Now I am not sure. I woke up with your symptoms and I am out of sudafed! I tried zyrtec this winter and it kept me up all night for days. I took one this afternoon because I was desperate. I can breath now but I have been talking too much and feel a bit wired. Hope you feel better.
