*achoo* — oh yeah!

I mentioned this yesterday to the girls, but I just had another reminder. The pollen here, blanketing everything, blowing around in the wind like snow… it freaks me out to walk to the garbage dumpster and leave footprints in it. This is nuts, yet our windows are open and the fans have been going non-stop. The weather, I love. Imagining the inside of my lungs looking as green as my car and the parking lot, I don’t love.

When allergy season hits, I always do that brain-fart where I think I’m just getting sick… a sinus thing, or I’m just feeling groggy and tired, popping my Tylenol sinus pills, drinking my OJ…. until I remember to just take my damn Claritin. Some days, I’m taking one every 12 hours instead of 24 just to function, but it does the trick.

How can someone who has lived with allergies all her life be so dumb sometimes as to forget about them? My only answer, pollen allergies can sneak up on you… not giving you a big enough dose at once to cause you to put two and two together.
But man, if you’re in doubt, again… go look at the green snow blowing across the parking lot. Restrain me or I might go make some pollen angels.
