Under the weather, Kaybees kudos

The temperatures finally went above 20 and boy are they determined to show us something! It's been close to 90 degrees for 5 consecutive days (notice it's still April). The bugs are so many. Wasps must have spent winter breeding. What's killing us here is the pollen and allergens in the air. Like if you drive with your windows open you will actually have residue remain on your person.

Which explains why I'm so under the weather. Red, itchy watery eyes, itchy nose and throat, a corroded roof of mouth, sinus headaches and general feeling of malaise. It's allergy season again and this one is on with a vengeance. Needless to say I've given up on my "I'm not using prescription meds again" campaign that I had signed into not too long ago. Tough times call for tough measures. There's no winning with this season. Either you itch till you drop or you take meds and feel so exhausted from them, you might as well drop!

You'd think with all this in mind they'd slow their roll at work. No. Deadlines are still deadlines despite the fact that staring at a computer with a sinus headache makes me consider plucking my hair, one strand at a time, until I am bald. As a result, I've taken to working 9 hour days to get 7 hrs worth of work accomplished. I'm fully aware I've no idea what's going on in the world past few days. Couldn't be bothered less. I'm trying to feel normal. My eyes were a much lighter red today, more pink than red. That's improvement. It's why I'm in here, attempting to think through my medicine head.

I wanted to post a congratulations to all who were nominated for the kaybees. So, congratulations, y'all! I'd say the finalists were pretty much what I expected to see. I thought they should give an honorary award to bankelele's blog for giving such needed financial information in a very easy to read format. Of all blogs, this is one where you actually look in before making a financial decision sometimes. I think that's huge. Maybe a most useful blog nomination for this next year?

Anyway, it's back to bed for me. I wonder, seeing that the erratic temperature changes are causing us such added distress, you think next year there will be a section that allows us to claim global warming as an added expense on our taxes?

pole! Jaribu Allegra ama Zyrtec, it seems to work really well, plus its non-drowsy. Allegra-D makes me wired, though its effective on the sinus headaches. I hope you feel better soon.
