Hi friends! How are you doing today? I hope you’re doing better than me right now. Allergies hit me like a ton of bricks this year. Well actually I just think it’s allergies but it’s the same symptoms as a cold so I’m just guessing to be honest. Fingers crossed it is allergies so some medicine can just kick the symptoms to the curb. Have a great day 🙂
When I woke up yesterday morning I was feeling nice and refreshed and ready to tackle the week. Bailey and I had a little play time once I was ready for work. For breakfast, I fried two eggs and grabbed an oatmeal muffin to enjoy as well.
During lunch at work, I started a new book. I never finished The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand but I was noticing that I wasn’t looking forward to reading it and would opt to watch tv instead of read. In order to get back into reading, I knew I would need something different to read. So I dug into my pile of books that I own and pulled out Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight. It’s the story of an ideal suburb that is shocked when a baby’s body is found in the woods near the town’s prestigious university. That’s about all I can say right now but I think it’ll be a good one!
Throughout the day, I noticed that the slight runny nose I woke up with was progressing and other symptoms were coming into play. I started sneezing a bunch and was cold even though I had a sweater on. The symptoms all point to either allergies or a cold but my guess is allergies since it came out of no where. I figured I would take Bailey for a little walk while Alex was on a work call after work and see how I felt. Oh my word, I was not feeling it just on our walk! My plan for a run got thrown out the window at that point since just walking had me breathing hard because of congestion.
The rest of the night was spent in pjs and on the couch watching tv. We had planned on leftovers for dinner but it didn’t sound good. Alex was a gem and went to our favorite diner to get grilled cheese and soup. So good! It was perfect and just what I needed for the night. I fell asleep on the couch before 9 then went to bed and started to watch The Office with Alex where I think I was up for 5 minutes before falling asleep.
Question of the day: Do you have bad seasonal allergies this year?
