Yesterday I shamelessly carried a roll of toliet paper from the bathroom back to my desk.
I didn't have allergies for most of my life - however, I think I am hitting the jackpot now. Ugh.
The past few days have been yucky - coughing, sneezing, running nose, scratchy throat.
Dan has always had allergies, so he is weirdly happy that I now get to join in his misery. After both coughing and sneezing, we take turns "shhshhing" each other to not wake Ina.
Could someone please send a lifetime supply of tissues to our house?
I tried to run yesterday with Ina, but soon found that I couldn't breathe, so I called it at 2.5 miles.
Today I am taking an extra rest day - and any medication I can find that doesn't cross into breast milk.
Because I can't let a second of my life go without being captured on the blog - on Sunday my family met to celebrate my niece (weird to say - still getting used to Matt and Cindy being married!) Jayelin's birthday. Here are a few pictures:
I love birthday parties - an extra day to have the family around.
Breakfast - my first smoothie of the season! In the mix: 1.5 frozen bananas, 2 handfuls of spinach, 1 C frozen berries, 1/2 C Greek yogurt, 1 C skim milk, 1 T peanut butter.
This baby kept me full until lunch.
Lunch - cottage cheese and fresh pineapple with a sweet potato that I stuck in the microwave
Snack - handful of mixed nuts
Dinner - buffalo chicken and potato casserole following *this recipe*
