That’s What I Hate About You . . .

Flowers blooming. Warm weather. Cool breezes. Birds chirping. Having fun outdoors. To me, spring signals a renewing of sorts … goodbye dreaded winter, cold weather, and being trapped indoors. Hello sunshine smiling down on my skin! I get giddy at the thought of getting those toes painted with a little Nail color. I’m also excited to watch my little ones run out some of that pent up energy. Yes indeed, I love springtime except for …

POLLEN! Ugh! Sneezing. Coughing. Itchy Eyes. Oh my! And pollen is so sneaky. For a day or two, my sweet little boy and I were walking around feeling sick. I attributed it to long days, working hard, late nights, and recent projects. Then I got a glimpse of our local pollen count – yikes! Through the roof! And though for years I’ve been blessed to not need allergy medicine to make it through, it doesn’t look like this year is one of those times.

I take a few precautionary steps to fight the pollen …
1) As soon as we enter the house, change clothes and bathe. It doesn’t work all the time, but we try.
2) Limit outdoor activity to after a good rain. Again, not always possible.
3) Masks. We haven’t gotten there yet, thank God. But . . .

Goodbye freezing cold, hello Allegra.
