Weekend Wrap Up

It’s Monday, and life is good.

Poor Pookah suffered horribly all last week with allergies.  The pollen count was CRAZY! My poor child couldn’t go outside for 5 minutes without an attack of hives, stuffy nose, and itchy eyes. When he woke up Thursday morning with more hives, wheezing and swollen purple bags under his eyes, I kept him home from school.

He was better on Friday, but still red and itchy.  I decontaminated the house: changed the filters, vacuumed, washed all toys that had been outside down, washed all sheets and clothes.  And changed his allergy meds.

It worked.

That and the pollen count went down.

I went to work Saturday night, but got to go home early. Thank God. My patient was not a nice person.

We spent yesterday outside pretty much( it was a BEAUTIFUL day).  And he didn’t suffer that much.  He even got to fly a kite for the first time.


Oh yeah, and C-Dub got a new car.

I’m jealous.

It took forever and by the end of the evening, Pookah had lost his shit and there were temper tantrums EVERYWHERE.


Pookah doesn’t throw them often, but when he does…….

Anyway, it was a good weekend.

Life is good.

and  then, she {snapped}

      Thanks! And you should move here, but for the fall. No one can really breathe right due to all this pollen, and summer here is too damn hot!

    New cars rock! It is so weird I was fine last week with the pollen but this week I’m miserable. Hopefully in the next few days everything will die down.

    I am going to get my son a kite. I used to love flying them as a child I think he would enjoy it.

    I’m so looking forward for the weather to get better so that Zee can fly a kite as well. I don’t know what it was, but this weekend, her allergies was acting up as well. Glad he was feeling better though.

      I changed Pookah from Zyrtec to Allegra. It’s working soooo much better. He’s still stuffy, and his eyes are puffy again( the pollen count is rising again). But he is better.
