And I'm not talking about the excitement I just felt when I learned that Sarah Palin plans to homeschool her kids and she did her acceptance speech in red peep toes! Oh, yeah, baby.
No, what I can feel is POLLEN. Lots and lots of POLLEN.
And so can my daughter, who is miserable. She is sneezing all the time despite the record amount of antihistamines we are giving her. It's just a rotten time of year.
I hate allergies. Just hate them. I grew up with them, too, and my eyes would swell up and run constantly, and I couldn't stop sneezing. It's times like that that you can barely keep your eyes open.
Rebecca complains that the skin around her mouth gets all itchy and irritated, and she's always scratching and sniffing, which is much more fun, apparently, if done on lottery tickets, not that I would know.
Anyway, it just seems that as summer is fading it has to rub it in. We can't just enjoy the lovely weather that we still have; we have to hibernate in our homes, with the windows tightly shut, so that nothing EVIL can enter.
About Me: I'm a Christian author of a bunch of books, and a frequent speaker to women's groups and marriage conferences. Best of all, I love homeschooling my daughters, Rebecca and Katie. And I love to knit. Preferably simultaneously.
