For a week now, I’ve been in a war. It’s a battle I fight every winter.
The worst part is that the enemy is so stinkin’ little. Practically microscopic. As a single combatant it’s tee-niney and I could beat just one ittsy bitty adversary, but that’s not how this opponent rolls. Oh, no.
It joins forces with millions and billions. And then it looks like this.
I live where I’m surrounded by these. Our part of Texas is crazy filled with them. No, this cedar tree is not on fire. It’s releasing the enemy, I mean, pollen.
And making plenty of people sick, including me. Miserable. Wanting to rip their faces off miserable. Wanting to gouge out their eyes miserable. Wanting to put a pipe cleaner up through their nose all the way down their throat miserable and pull it back and forth scratching. Have I mentioned miserable?
Thankfully, I had two friends step in to help me with medication. Two days later and I was not crying at 4am in misery any more. Which is a really good thing since the very next day we left for “the other camp”, also known as One Thousand Nine Hundred Acres of Cedar Camp.
Oftentimes, the battle ends up with me having a sinus infection as the final parlay from the enemy. Like here. I’m taking Vit C, Vit E, and Thieves oil on top of the medication in hopes of thwarting the enemy. If it doesn’t work, I’m considering this…
Of course, I’ll have to wear this…
I’m actually considering this little accessory as my fashion statement every December through February. What do you think?
How was your weekend?
