Back to work.  Still coughing but not enough to make me dizzy.  Eyes still flaring up --the redness and itching is driving me slightly more crazy than usual.  And red swollen eyes are SO ATTRACTIVE on older women.

Today's lunch was a ham and cheese roll up (from low carb days) and roasted beets with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  I had a banana and tea for mid morning.  My cold has subdued my interest in food.
My pants are looser.  I don't really care.

I'm off to make a cup of coffee and take a Benadryl as a preventive strike against the regular evening itch fest with my eyes.  I think I am allergic to the couch.

Isn't it funny how allergies work? I have had an allergy to dairy (it's NOT lactose) since birth. During my 20, 30, and up I could tolerate it a bit. But lately, it seems that I can just look at dairy and wham! I'm down for the count.

Glad you're feeling a little better, sometimes the routine is what we need to give a virus that final kick.

Allergies suck!
I was trying to get in touch with you via an old email and it bounced. Ran across a Deja/Daisy poem you wrote and gave to me. Made me smile and wanted to share. Love to you and Gary. - Kathy
