"It's nothing to sneeze at."
The person who coined that statement should be given the honor of spending Spring in my head! The word "sneeze" is a bit of a nightmare right now! This part of the world is bursting with colors and growth, meanwhile I am sneezing, rubbing my eyes, sneezing, blowing my nose, sneezing, sneezing, sneezing. . . Did I mention sneezing?! Even my own front yard is boasting of beautiful foliage such as -
this pretty bush.
In all reality, this pretty bush may be part of the problem. (Not a pleasant thought since there are about seven or eight in the front!)
Yesterday, the County Line News stated, "It's an allergy nightmare out there. . .The tree pollen count hit 4,862. . .Any count more than 1500 is considered very high." Thank you, County Line News, for now adding psychological misery to my physical misery!
Now, for an interesting twist, I am to go to the dentist tomorrow (the 9th). I am nervous enough about the report and bill, but to make matters worse, I am just as worried about needing to sneeze! I have been taking meds, and I trust they will make tomorrow bearable. I still have a fear of my mouth being propped open, dental tools drilling and filing away when the sneeze of the ages comes to fruition! (I already feel the pain!)
Let's hope I have no horrifying tales to tell tomorrow!

At least you have warmth! We all have runny noses, congestion, and Scott has a cough (in my face half the night), since it was 81 degrees yest., and 41 today!!!

How's Ethan? Has his asthma been acting up? Maybe you need to move back to Cincinnati quickly.

Ick. Just the word dentist gives me the chills.

You can dig up some of those beautiful bushes and send them to me!

By the way, I believe you are on the same planet as the rest of us... for us tomorrow is April 5th, not 9th! *heehee*

I can TOTALLY relate - spring sends me into allergic spasms. This year I'm adding the contamination from the nearby oil refinery here in Salamanca, MX - I can see the smoke stacks from my house. This along with the gorgeous bougainvillea bushes in my front I said - I relate. I'll be wishing for a sneezeless dentist visit for you.

Les, Ethan's breathing has been fine. It's all the pollen that is causing the skin issues.

That's funny, Mickey. I guess I was thinking 9 because that was the appointment time, but with these allergies, I sometimes think I am on another planet!

Sorry about the smoke stacks! Ick! When in Mexico, are you expected to sneeze in Spanish? :-) (Just kidding!)
