I lasted till 11:30 when I gave up and went home. Allergy meds didn’t help much, head hurt, and I spent the afternoon sleeping. We need a good rain to wash out the pollen. Hopefully we’ll get it tomorrow.... Read more

I'm a bit tired this morning. It's partly my own fault, and the rest is due to time change lag that'll last another week or so. Around 9:00 PM last night, I started the dishwasher and then for some reason, I could feel a cleaning fit com... Read more
