Warning: This post is trivial.
To be honest, this week has gone by pretty quickly, so I am feeling okay today! I've slept in until 5am for about 3 weeks now, haha, so I even feel refreshed.
The warmer weather makes me VERY happy because I am cold-natured. What doesn't make me happy is the allergies and tornados that have come with this gorgeously delicious weather.
I started getting these seasonal allergies a few years ago, but this is the worst I have ever felt! My nose is stuffy, my throat itches, and my eyes are burning - I can't wear mascara (GASP!)! I love having the windows open, but I've had to close them (much to Big Steve's dismay) because I feel so crappy. When I wake up, my eyes are like swollen and red and I generally feel like I've been hit by a giant bus. I am not a fan of anti-histamines because my body generally becomes immune to the effects and I have to keep taking more, plus it's really not great to block histamines because that's your immune system's reaction to protect your body from pollen; if you block them, you're essentially allowing harmful crap into your body. Not a fan of that! This weekend, I want to do some research on natural ways to appease the allergy symptoms so I don't have to pop a pill every day to get through it and every night just to sleep. I'll keep you posted on any success!
The tornado warnings and watches have been scaring the you-know-what out of me. Last night, I went to Harris Teeter at about 9 pm without even realizing that storms were a brewin'. Trust me, I love Super Double trips, but I am not a complete looney who would chance being caught in a storm to make them. When I got home, the lightening and thunder started and the wind was INSANE! I was so scared! I thought Big Steven was in bed, so I carried all of the groceries in with one trip (this included 2 gallons of milk!). My brother then called me and told me to watch the news and find a place of shelter without windows. The only place in my house without windows is the master closet, so I grabbed my Little Steven out of his crib, a comfortor, and a pillow and went into the closet. Meanwhile, Big Steven is laughing at me. WHATEVER! I just kept thinking 'what if a tree falls through my baby's window and I can't get to him?' So, it was better safe than sorry and I stayed in there until the rain stopped. Yes.I.Did.
I am all out of deep thoughts this week. My mind has been dedicated to a presentation I have tonight, a test on Sunday, and another test Tuesday night. I am fried, ladies and gentlemen.
I hope you make it to tomorrow! Haha. TGIAF!
