Welcome to my weekend!
Well, you never know what a little cold front will bring! This time it was something wrapped in coughs, stopped up noses, and scratchy throats!
Since last Tuesday night, we have consumed more teas, more oils, more honey, than this entire year combined and some of us are still not back to normal.
I was told it could be Hay Fever. Collin was feverish for about 3 hours the first night, but then never had fever again. Ted and I only had the sinus congestion and cough, but no fever. Of course, David still hasn't had any problems (he never gets sick:), which is great. At least one of us isn't strung out on teas and oils!
We finally had to resort to some allergy meds, when it got to the point that I couldn't even smell my Peppermint oil! If you can't smell that stuff, then you have serious nose blockage! Good old traditional VICKS helped me at night.
In spite of not feeling well, Ted and Collin made some progress on Ted's music studio on Saturday, putting up the frame on the inside. I spent Saturday trying to breath!
Sunday I felt better and even helped David paint the back step railings. That and a few loads of laundry were about the extent of my accomplishments over the weekend (unless you count keeping everyone alive and somewhat breathing).
Due to me feeling like my head was going to explode, I totally bombed our budget by bringing home "take-out" food for several meals.
When you can't breath, it affects your taste buds and only certain things sound even remotely worth putting in your mouth, so I resorted to burgers one day and take-out deli food the next. Blah! I don't think that was a good choice! Where's the nice little neighbor lady with the homemade chicken soup when you need her?!!
I'm hoping this week will be better. It's supposed to storm today, so maybe it will wash away all the whatever-it-was that the front brought in last week.
But, here's a question that came to my mind this week:
Do the people up North get sick when they get a South wind? In other words, does our sea air, marsh grass, pine straw, alligator dander, make y'all sick? I really am curious!
Because, even though we are down here with the swamps, we have to breath the Cedar and whatever else grows up there and it hardly seems fair that y'all don't get to share in the pollen swap!
If someone could answer that for me, it would be the highlight of my day:)
