Spring Has Sprung.  So Have My Sinuses.

Filed under: Holidays,Peaves,Such is Life — Amy @ 7:48 pm

The crowds came in, the shops opened up, and healthy, green plants sprang up absolutely everywhere.  The woods around our house are thick and green, the grass is vibrant, and the ferns have sprouted at least a foot in a matter of days.

Amazing transformation.

The last week – despite the forecasts – has been sunny and hovering around 65°.  Today was the first overcast day all week and the blue sky started poking through late this afternoon.  The forecast continues to predict rain every day for the foreseeable future.  We’ll see how that goes.

Jens was sick last week.  He had some sort of nasty flu-like virus that took him down pretty hard for about 3 days.  He even called in sick to work, which he very rarely does.

Then he was nice enough to give it to me.  I’ve been slacking on my Vitamin D doses and now I’m paying for it.

All things considered, it actually wasn’t too bad as illnesses go.  As a SAHM, I don’t get “sick days,” so it was fortunate that I was not up to par on a weekend/holiday because that meant there were other people around to care for the kids. Now I just have these annoying cold-like symptoms – itchy eyes, runny/stuffy nose.  Blah.  I can’t remember the last time I had a cold.  It must have been before Koren was born.

I think I’ll make a point never to get another one. 

My head tickles and I can’t stop sneezing.

    Oh, Amy, I love to read your blogs…even when the news isn’t so good because I feel like i’m there with you experiencing the things you are…especially the latrine. Relax and try to continue to heal, taking your own advice of extra vitamin D.
