Howdy, folks. Guess what? My allergies are acting up. I guess because it’s starting to transition from summer to fall.
I’ve never really had fall allergies before, so when I started to feel like crap yesterday evening, allergies sure didn’t pop into my head as the cause. For me, I usually just have a massive amount of pressure in my face and messed up eyes. My nose gets stopped up a bit, but it doesn’t run. So, I have that pressure in my face today, which is making my teeth hurt too. And with all that comes a lovely headache. Oh, yeah, and I sneezed about 10 times in a row earlier. That felt GREAT. Just totally fabulous. Sigh.
I really need to talk to my doctor about what I can take for this. It seems to get worse each year. I only actually started having allergies like this about five years ago or so. I had NO IDEA what was going on the first time around. I thought there was something seriously wrong with me, until it was pointed out as “oh, that’s just allergies.” Oh, great.
On another note: Guess what? I’m cold. Yep, it’s in the 70s outside right now, going to hit the 80s, I think, and I’m sitting here in a sweater and my winter PJ bottoms. I went to sleep last night under the electric blanket. I am such a wuss when it comes to the cold.
I’m very glad, though, that I live in a place where there is heat, and I can afford it. When I lived in my house in Johnson City, I was so broke that in the winter my “heat” was set at 50 degrees when I wasn’t home and 60 when I was home. Winters there were MISERABLE. I didn’t have an electric blanket. I couldn’t afford to buy one, and I dared not add anything — even just pennies — to the electric bill. I do not miss those days at all.
After today, I have a three-day weekend! I’ve got some plans that I will hopefully follow through on. One involves a massive amount of patience, strength and logic. I have one of those things, so it should be interesting. I will hopefully remember to take video and photos of part of it, so you can be entertained by my struggles.
Update: If you read my post from yesterday (check it out here), you saw that I ordered a webcam Aug. 17, and the order was still in process. Well, after I posted yesterday’s entry, the dang thing finally shipped. Now, I don’t know if it shipped just because that’s when it would have shipped anyway or if one of my many emails/messages, etc. finally did something. But now we’ll see if it actually gets here. It is supposed to arrive by Thursday.
I am planning to use the webcam to stream on Twitch. We’ll see how long it takes me to get that set up and to get my nerve up to actually stream.
OK, sitting here is making my headache worse, and I still need to work in front of a computer for eight hours shortly. So, I’m ending the post here. Until next time!
