remembering to forget ALLERGIES

Posted May 16 2008 12:00am
my mind is racing...I have so many things to do and so many things that I am thinking about, yet I haven't moved from the same position for the last 12 hours...except when all 4 cats came and started eating my hair...only then did I realize somebody probably hadn't filled their food and water dishes and that somebody was probably me.

So here I think. I really should empty the dishwasher. The same load has been washed 2 times now in the washing machine because it hasn't been put in the dryer straight away. There are 3 other laundry baskets lined up waiting their turn to be forgotten. The pork roast is thawed out by now and really should be cooked. As well as the breakfast sausage and eggs I was going to make two yesterdays ago. There are dishes in the sink waiting to go in the dishwasher. My flower beds are empty as well as my bird feeders.

I haven't slept but 10 hours in the last 36-48...
If I sleep I am afraid I will miss something...
I'm afraid to upset this balance of whatever it is...
It doesn't feel like a depressive state...
This is different.
I have 3 books I keep picking up, run my fingers across the cover, and put back down and the thinking starts again.
I'm not sure what this is about, but I do know I need to take a shower. And that is where I will start.

It was allergies that was waiting for me...as soon as I stepped outside to gather the paper I was assaulted by cut grass and lilacs (I love lilacs, they hate me)...within minutes I broke out in hives, my eyes watered and the sneezes came in rapid fire...much like the Tommy guns of late. It was fun driving Evan to school with one eye closed and let's just say inside windshield wipers would be a nice feature this time of year.

Now I know why I was so hesitant to leave my nest. I can't believe I did my hair AND makeup this morning, only to have both obliterated by Puffs, Visine and yard clippings.

So I emptied the dishwasher and washed that same load for the 4th time....
