A day toppled by…ALLERGIES!

A 2014

Today is A Day – and I was supposed to blog about hiking “A” Mountain. Please note I said SUPPOSED TOO! Now, I could lie and say I did, but that’s not what I want to do in my life (the lying part). So today’s topic for the letter “A” is…


I despise allergies. I loathe allergies. I so wish I could invent something that would make my allergies (and everyone else’s) GO AWAY FOREVER!!!!!

Allergies are what prevented me from hiking A Mountain over the weekend. The school I teach at had a spring carnival last Saturday that teachers were required to attend (yep – from 9am – 2pm, then we had to stay and clean up as well). The festival was outside, and I ran the fishbowl booth the entire time. The temps were around 87, 88 degrees, but there was a nice breeze so I didn’t get hot. Unfortunately that nice breeze combined with the pollution of Phoenix conspired to set off my allergies! Sunday was a washout with no hiking possible – can’t safely hike if your eyes are watering, nose is sneezing, and breathing is hard to do. Fingers are crossed that I can at least go for a walk tomorrow or Thursday – hopefully Mother Nature will stop with the 16-20 mph winds we’re experiencing so far this week

Tell me…what do you do when allergies go psycho on you? I’m already taking two different types of medication, but would be open to suggestions if you know of something that helps you get through the allergy season.

Happy Tuesday! J
