Finally, Relief! And Another Fill Tomorrow!!

This is scene we see on our way down the mountain from Boreal Ski Resort at the Summit of the Sierras on Hwy 80, heading down towards Truckee and Donner Lake.  Here we were between storms so the roads were remarkably clear and dry.  And tomorrow it should look like this as well, assuming it only rains with some light snow showers.

Hey Ya'll,

First off I would like to apologize for not commenting very much on other blogs lately (again!!).  I am having a hard time just posting on my own blog!!  But that is no excuse.  But...if you would like to hear one, then...the excuse is that I have been working diligently on going through our belongings.  I have produced a ton of trash, and that is just from my office!!  And two more boxes of shredding to boot!  And I am only about 1/3 of the way finished in my office!!  Whew! 

But we have soooo many deadlines ahead of us, that I fear I will continue to fall behind in your blogs!  I will try to read as many as I can each day, and hopefully comment now and then as well!!  Just know that I am thinking of all of you!

Now for the relief part of the post.  The last two days has been hell on my nose!!  My sister in law was here on Saturday.  She helps us out by cleaning our house periodically and Saturday was the first time she has been able to make it here in 2 months!  And with us going through tons of boxes of dusty old things, apparently too much dust, etc was kicked up.  Which wreaked havoc on my Allergies!!  I haven't had an attack like this since my post on January 8th.  Where I had a major Allergy attack while in my MIL's car and used up almost a whole box of Kleenex that day.

Well, I have had 2 full days of almost constant nose running.  I should have lost at least a pound of body fluids at least, you would think!  I went through 2 boxes of Kleenex this time.  And if I was able to go 2-3 minutes between blowing, I was counting myself lucky!!  Usually it was about 1-1 1/2 minutes apart.  And TMI ALERT here!  We are not talking about a gentle blow.  We are talking, if I forgot to make sure the bottom of my nose was covered, I found slimy snot in my hand, on my clothing, on the desk, etc....I couldn't even trust using my Bi Pap Machine at night, for fear that I would get snot all over the mask!!  But today, I found some relief, finally!!

And wouldn't you know, tomorrow we drive back over the Sierra's to Reno for my next Fill, and it is snowing!!!  But tomorrow it is supposed to only be rain/snow showers, so we are hoping that the next heavier snow that is due on Thursday, does indeed hold off.  It makes it much easier to drive if we do not have to deal with the weather as well.

Well, I better get off for now, Walt just got out of bed and told me it was time to get into bed!!!  So I better start my bedtime ritual so that I can be in bed by 2-2:15!  Till next time...

Aloha My Friends  :)

Don't be guilty about commenting-- my feeling is that we are almost like a 'family'-- the bandster community, that is... we are here for each other, even if we don't 'talk' each day!
Good luck with your fill!!!

I think mother nature has thrown us all for a loop this year.
