Not meaning ANYTHING negative. Really. It's a really rough day, though. Days are just like that sometimes. Tomorrow will be better.
I miss my dad. He died earlier this year, so this is my first year without him. It's been a hard couple of days, with lots of good memories, but also more tears than I expected.
I also miss my kids. I had to leave our dinner because I was having an allergic reaction. I don't want to have the allergy I do. The small pup is hypoallergenic. I've tried telling my allergies that. They don't agree with me. I had too much trouble breathing to stay where allergens are. Breathing is important. I took my peak flow. That's okay. My sinuses are so congested I can't breath still, though. and that's after a couple medicines. I'm grateful my lung function is good. Bottom line - allergies can be so hard to explain and they're certain hard to live with.
I got a call asking me to come back after I left. At that point, I was too upset. We talked about the allergies before the pup was purchased. I believed I was clear. We don't interact enough for it to really make a difference in the day to day, but it will impact holidays down the road. I'll try to work with my doctors on a different approach, but if you are a reader who has allergies, you know that will be difficult. She's a sweet pup. My children love her. Such a hard space to be in, but breathing is important.
Bah humbug to allergies, Merry Christmas to all.
