MY DAY: An under-the-weather-day

For the past several days I’ve been dealing with severe head congestion that has mimicked a sinus infection.

This past Friday, I noticed I was sneezing several times a day, and continued with my twice daily sinus flushes, and made sure I was taking my Airborne.  I take at least two guaifenesin each day, careful that it does not swell the prostate (the joys of being a male in his 40’s).  By Monday, the head congestion, and sinus pressure had gripped me.  Tuesday, I felt nauseous most of the day, and the sinus pressure was relentless.  I fell asleep early, waking at 2:30 AM with more head misery.

It is Wednesday, late afternoon, and I have taken the day off from teaching.  The sinus pressure continues, and the congestion will soon be battled by Mucinex Sinus-Max.  I hate relying on medications, but I’ve gotten to the point in my day where I can no longer stand it.

The Midwest was cleared of almost all snow by Monday, and Tuesday night it returned in full force!  The snow in the front was up to my upper calf.  I used my new snow-blower but it was an effort due to the sleet/rain that fell on top of the snow.

I took a trip to the pharmacy for my regular medications, and took Chief, Harrigan and Bailey to SuperPetz, this being the Girls’ first visit.  Chief was beside himself, as he loves his very ow story.  The girls became more excited as they sniffed along the treat shelves right at their level.  I purchased two name/phone number tags since their dog license tags should arrive any day.

I am spending some time at my desk, listening to a plethora of wonderful music provided by Spotify.  I may take the pooches out for a brief walk before returning to hot green tea, a sinus flush, Mucinex, and a nap.
