Thank Goodness Its Friday -

Well Friday is finally here and I have to say I am glad.... It has been an eventful week that seemed to run by quite quickly to say the least, yet also seemed to drag itself out. Is that possible? Monday started full steam and it appeared that I would do a wonderful job of getting all my chores and want to do list completed or at least a good start to them... The weather was nice and still I stayed inside and did the things I knew had to be started.

Tuesday came and since I did such a great job the day before, I splurged a bit and did not do as much... Played with Winston and the cats, read my new book, and worked on my Celtic Tree Lore postings. I am trying to get them worked up ahead so I can just have them scheduled to post. It was a relaxing day and quite enjoyable.

Then Wednesday came..... I should know better than to slack too much so early in the week; although it has always been my problem to this. I always think I have plenty of time to get things done. Yet Wednesday morning greeted me with a wonderful bout with my allergies. And believe me I do mean that sarcastically. It was anything but wonderful. Puffy watery eyes, runny nose, the works. I started the medicine immediately even though I had been on my Allegra for a couple weeks already. And just like usual, the day I “thought” I would be catching up I truly did feel like not doing a darn thing. Yes there were things I did need to do like take Winston out for his potty breaks, which I am sure the neighbors enjoyed. I walked like an 80 year old woman. He wanted so to play yet I was just not up to running with him like I usually do.

So my entire Wednesday was shot. Nothing really got done. I just sat and tried like ever to keep my nose from running all over me. My highlight of the day was finding a can of chicken noodle soup for supper… I took a Benadryl that evening and was out like a light. Winston also was a good boy and slept all through the night until 6 am. When I woke yesterday I felt a bit better and so I was back at it… Completed the paper work I needed to get done and cleaned my kitchen and did some laundry. Wrote and posted my weekly writings on Ewitch - About My Love of Gardening and felt pretty good. The day was simply wonderful with no wind at all.   I had to go outside and enjoy it just a bit. While I was out I could see the yard and how it needed mowing.

Not a good idea for someone who was combating allergies yet I figured I could at least mow the back around the porch. It would not take me that long and the fresh air would do me good. Well when all was said and done, I had mowed the entire yard. I will say that it does look worlds better yet I did pay for it as evening rolled around. The allergies came back to visit while I watched Survivor and continued until I went to bed. It probably did not help matters that I was a bit vocal at the stupidity of the people on Survivor. Winston thinks I am mad I know as there was no one to listen to my disgust but him and he didn’t really want to hear it.

We both went to bed early and woke this morning to another nice day. The stuffy nose is still with me and more than likely will be for a few more days. Yet I am determined to get a few more things done today. I have errands to run, and a few chores to finish, then the weekend… Vincent comes home this evening and no more early morning potty break calls at least for a couple days. By Monday hopefully this runny nose will be gone and I will have a new grandbaby to talk about. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend. Blessings

I heard on the news this morning that allergy season has started early this year. That stuffy nose feeling is so annoying. A nasty sore throat and cold has encouraged me to take an early weekend, so I am home here catching up on some rest. Tomorrow I hope to get outdoors...actually, I have to buy a few things to wear or I will be wearing winter sweaters to work.

The week went by pretty fast, but at times it felt so slow too..I hate when that happens! I always look forward to your posts, you are so eloquent when you write! Have a great weekend, and I hope you feel better!

Oh Janie...I have really bad allergies too...asthma and eczema and hayfever are a big part of our lives here, as my children have them all fun.
I don't take meds either...(stubborn me) I just suffer.
Sleeping with a runny nose ain't fun is it darlin'?
Hope you have a lovely weekend...and good luck with the new little one!
Fingers and toes crossed for you!
From one runny nose to another ;0)

I so feel your pain! The pollen is so think here, everything is coated in it, a tinted almost neon yellow/green color. Sure hope that you are feeling better when Vincent gets home. Why is it that we do things that we know we are going to pay a price for later? I am tickled that Winston is sleeping through the night for you. He is going to be so much company for you. Not to mention he is adorable. Wishing you well for a wonderful weekend.

Oh I do hope you feel better Dear!
Mine are just now starting to kick in...the wheezing and runny eyes, but I am stuffed up. Either way it is all miserable.

Here's hoping you feel better and enjoy your weekend!

So much to do in the spring and just not enough hours in our elongated days! The need to plant and nurture. The need to clean up and clean out. The 'airing' of the house. I adore spring!
