The weather is finally starting to warm up here in “sunny” Florida. Not quite our real Spring weather (which is the low 80s) but warm enough to where you don’t need a jacket in the afternoon. Along with this new weather has come a fresh new growth of flowers and trees and all things that spew pollen amongst us.
I have generally been immune to such issues, despite living in the pollen capitol of Florida (we have an overabundance of oak trees and magnolias and all kinds of beautiful nature-y things that are NOT palm trees). However, this year has proven that I am not completely impervious to these things.
After walking outside to take my kids to school early Friday morning, I found myself sneezing, popping the cough drops and using tissues galore. It’s awful. I look something like this:
I have seriously gone through about 3 boxes of tissues all by myself, and just yesterday I was forced to leave the ball park/play ground before my little ones were done because I could feel myself slowly dying near the monkey bars.
As a stay-at-home mom, I don’t really have time for this nonsense, nor do I have time to recover from it since I always have at least one kid with me at all times and they have no concept of “mommy just needs you to play quietly so my head doesn’t explode” time. So, I have decided to suck it up and invest in one of these until the blooming is complete:
I am trying to keep up with my writing on here, but if I seem to disappear for a bit, it’s probably because I am refilling my roll of toilet paper or becoming a spokesperson for Claritin.
