Allergies or Sleep...?

LOVE Spring with all my heart, and all my allergies! Spring means sunshine, green grass, blossoms, and flowers... which then translates to itchy...watery...runny.. burning, eyes, ears, nose, and throat!

I promise, I do love Spring... I just have to see past all the itching and sneezing.

Spring was killing me, and I needed some relief, so I went for the good stuff, Allegra D this week... Found out personally why they keep it behind the counter away from the meth heads! I immediately took some, just before bed time... not a smart idea I soon found out. I got only 3 hours of sleep that night! Why? Oh, because my heart was racing a mile a minute, and I felt like I was running the 50 yard dash! I couldn't stop sweating either. But, Allergies... GONE!

Lesson... Take the good allergy 'D' stuff in the morning...and get lots done like a Meth mom ;)

Happy Spring!

5 weeks!

There are only 5 weeks... 36 days... 858 hours... Until the end of the 2012/2013 school year...and to FULL TIME MOMMYHOOD!

It is certainly a bittersweet feeling. I have been back and forth with my final decision for a couple of months now. I knew deep in my heart and mind what I really wanted to do...but I just needed to take a step forward into the darkness and have faith that everything would work out.

I took the step forward last week when I told our principal here at CHHS that I was not coming back next year. It felt good to finally put it out there, and make it real. After I told him, I walked into my office and cried. Not quite sure why I cried, probably for many reasons, I'd miss my amazing co-workers, I'd miss the kids (some of them), I'd miss my cute office, and I'd miss my identity as a counselor. I would much rather have the identity of a mommy, but it will still miss the counselor identity.

I am so very grateful I will have the incredible opportunity to be a full time mom. I am so excited, and I look forward to all the new and different time I will have to spend with my babies.

(I wrote this 2 weeks ago... so only 3 weeks now!)

This has GOT to be the year of the SICKYS!!! I have been sick for over a month now. It has not been fun, and frankly, I am SICK of it! I am surprised I still have both my lungs, and that all of my ribs are still intact...well at least I hope. I was coughing on my 30th birthday...sign of old age, I assume. Sneezing on Christmas, and started the new year of with quite the case of the sniffles...AAACHEW! Thought I was feeling better... and another bug caught me again last week. My baby has been sick, my hubby has been sick..and we just want to feel better.

Sick of winter! Sick of the mucky yucky air! Just Sick!

Ok... Just a vent! Maybe now I got that off my chest (Pun INTENDED), I will start feeling better.

Sending Healthy Blessings your way! :)
