despite it being high allergy season, it feels like summer, kids!
in 3 days, we leave for vegas, baby! a college friend of mine is getting married. and another old friend, my oldest friend, in fact, lives in vegas. once upon time we were bffs in middle school, then her family moved to saudi arabia. yes, saudi arabia. we kept in touch for a while, but you know how things go. then randomly, one of the first days of college, we spotted each other at a soccer game. and of course it was like no time had passed at all.
so, needless to say, the next three days of work are going to feel like torture. except for when i’m planning outfits / makeup looks / driving playlists.
man, i love a good roadtrip!
So, the weekend we got our bikes was freaking awesome! We took a short ride that night, then we did a longer ride the next morning along the local vineyards. I packed a picnic, we took some pictures -it was like one of those Visit California ads. Seriously.
But on Monday I got knocked on my ass by allergies. Stupid crappy allergies. Which is weird because I’ve been taking my meds and never was I stuffed up or sneezing. But boy was I coughing! And coughing. I barely got through Monday at work so I took Tuesday and Wednesday off. I couldn’t sleep to save my life. Cough. Cough. Cough. No heavy phlegm, justcoughing. I was feeling halfway decent on Thursday, so off to work I went. It probably wasn’t until Tuesday that I felt 100%. The strange thing isthat even though all the phlegm and heavy cough issues are gone, I still have a slight nagging dry cough. It sucks!
Needless to say, I haven’t spent any time outdoors and have even shied away from the gym because it’s pretty hard to feel normal with a cough involved. Plus I’m feeling the inertia of being out of the habit for over a week. Ugh. Added onto the fact that I ‘babied’ myself with whatever I wanted to eat. Apparently, even when i’m sick i don’t lose my appetite. So I feel Ike a fat slob who doesn’t quite feel herself yet. Blerg.
So I figured blogging might help me shake these ickies out. No more blah. Quit my whining and put my big girl panties on already. Hoo-rah!
