In the words of Charlie Sheen, my allergies are “WINNING” this week.
Yesterday I reached a breaking point and finally called the doctor. On top of my regular allergy symptoms (sinus headaches, itchy eyes) I’d been feeling like an elephant was sitting on my chest. So I worked from home for the day, which allowed me to get in to the doctor last minute and also gave me some much needed rest, too.
The doctor reaffirmed what I pretty much already knew; my allergies were out in full force and had also caused some asthma symptoms. So she gave me a whole slew of medicine and I’m officially determined to be on the road to recovery.
I’m feeling a little better today, but not sure whether it’s the medicine already working or whether I’m just glad it’s almost Friday (and a long weekend)!
But on a much happier note, yesterday Alisha at Married in Chicago gave me this:
Thanks so much, Alisha! It definitely made me smile.
So in keeping with tradition, here are 10 (mostly) fun facts about me!
- I’m part of a huge (and a bit crazy at times) extended family. My mom is one of 12 kids (11 of which are girls, and the boy is the oldest). I know our family can be a bit much at times, but I sure do love being part of it.
- My favorite flowers are orchids.
- I used to have my tongue pierced. It’s so unlike me, but apparently I did stupid and random things when I was in college. In addition to getting my tongue pierced on a whim with my roommates, I also got a tattoo on the way home from a trip to Target just because I felt like it (also with my college roommates). Yes, a permanent colorful scar on my body on the way home from buying toothpaste and ramen noodles. Seemed like a great idea! File both of these in the “regret” category please.
- I don’t drink coffee. I think it’s disgusting. Some days I think I should just learn to like it, because I have a feeling I’ll need it as I get older. I have up soda over 2 years ago, too, so I have very little (if any) caffeine intake on a regular basis.
And of course, the bloggers I want to pass this award onto—10 lovely ladies whose blogs I just adore!
Happy Friday-eve, friends!
