The weather has gotten very nice since this last Friday. The heat isn’t as bad, and it’s much cooler outside in the morning as well. It’s been overcast quite a bit, but it’s more than tolerable since it isn’t muggily too-hot any longer.
The worst thing is though, the allergies things seem to be much worse now too. Russell and I are the ones suffering the most. If I forget to take Claritin 24-hour I’m miserable. I didn’t take any yesterday. I had a migraine and totally forgot to. I have only been taking it since this year, but using it only when I know it’s been miserable allergy time. So the only reason I’ve used Claritin this year, is because I was so miserable in the Spring, and Benadryl is not an option for me. It knocks me out at a miniscule dose. This year allergies have been much worse for us, and others we know have reported the same thing. So it’s now Fall allergy time, though it’s technically still Summer.
I see signs that Frank and the other two children are affected too. We are an allergy family. Both Frank and I have plenty of symptoms we bring into the mix. Russell seems the most sensitive of the children. He was the only one vaccinated up to age 4 as well. Victoria up to 18 months, and Asa never. He’s the least bothered, Victoria is semi-bothered. It’s interesting. And very true as well.
I’m glad for signs of Autumn, even with the inevitable allergies.
