Bah Humbug...kindof...

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

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.

    I'm sorry that you had such troubles. Maybe next time, it can be at your space without the puppy.
