Allergies are murder right now. I have been taking sudafed to get through the days, and Monday I was desperate enough to purchase a package of 12 hour tablets, because I was at Costco and that was all they had. Tuesday morning I took one at 7 a.m. and had a zoom-Zoom-ZOOM day (i.e., I was hyperactively high as a kite the entire day) and M made me finally go to bed at 1 a.m. on Wednesday morning. I would love to say that my allergies were better, but I do not lie well. I will say I went from having painful, stuffy sinuses and popping ears to a runny nose and constant sneezing.

You would think after 3 hours sleep Wednesday morning I would not take the 12 hour stuff again, but you would be wrong. I took another at 8 a.m. and had a mildly less hyperactive day. I will say Tuesday and Wednesday were extremely productive and I got a lot of problems that I have been paper pushing back and forth across my desk done and filed. In fact, I actually feel caught up at the office and mostly with a few side job projects that I have been attacking here at home.

I crashed at 8 p.m. last night and got a long, 10 hour night of rest. I did not get wired on Sudafed today and was actually, finally feeling better this morning. Then the wind kicked up and I am back to snuffy sinuses tonight. What’s a girl to do? Let’s just say I was weak.


While this solution is not going to do anything good for me, the few spoonfuls certainly tasted heavenly and did wonders for my overall mood. I did an extra 30 minutes of exercise afterwards as penance. And let me tell you, every single bite was worth the extra minutes of stair-climbing cardio.

Maybe M will take pity on me and eat the rest of it later tonight or tomorrow. Otherwise I imagine I’ll be spending extra quality time on the rower or my arc trainer until it’s gone.

    1. I don’t eat a lot of ice cream, because it’s a lot of sugar and not good for me. Every once in awhile I breakdown and have some. My son is coming by tonight and I’ll send the rest home with him.
