Happy Memorial Day Weekend to all!
Ours has started out great. Friday afternoon I met TnT at the theater to see the NEW Pirates of the Caribbean-At World's End movie. It was great.....interesting plot this time, I won't spoil it for you. After the movie we shopped for our "Pool Party" supplies.
My bestestfriendinthewholewideworld called to see what time the pool opened and I said come on over anytime after 10am. Then my SIL called and I said the same to her.
The plans were for Burgers n Dogs for lunch. SIL showed up with my nephew and before long they were in the water....it was a chilly 72 degrees....it was cool Friday night.
Cindilou called to say she wasn't going to make it after all....she had to keep her granddaughter while the mom went to the doctor. Oh well I said "Come on over on Sunday - same pool, same plan diff day".
So we spent the afternoon on the deck, grilled some burgs n dogs. My brother came over for the food ....my Mom & stepDad came over for the eats too. The water warmed up to about 75....it should keep climbing tomorrow as we plung on up to the high 80's. I held my breath and jumped on in just to get it over with....then decided with my head cold like it is....not good to be in such chilly waters.
If I weren't having such a bad allergy attack I would have enjoyed it too. Wednesday and Thursday I've woke up with a slight sore throat and by Friday my throat was inflamed. Now I'm coughing and sniffling.
Have I ever mentioned that I am allergic to CHOCOLATE? Not deathly allergic THANK GOD! but the allergic kind of sniffles etc. Well.....
Hershey has made Truffles......yes, Truffles, in the nugget variety as well as the Kisses. I have fallen in LOVE with the nuggets. (Forget diet!)
So, it dawned on me today why I'm suffering so bad.....when you're allergic to chocolate and you consume a bag full of it YOU'R GONNA PAY!
But I soooooooooo love chocolate. A day is not complete without it. Or cheese too for that matter....................another one of my allergies.
Guess what the other one is..............
...................tomatoes. And what do I love? Italian foods. Marinara sauce, pizza and I love a fresh tomato (salads, cut up with or without vinegar).
I figured that when you have allergies and they give you allergy shots, what they are giving you is actually the compound to which you are allergic......so, why not forego the shots and just eat the products???
Doesn't quite work the same. But that's just too bad. I'm not gonna give up some of my favorites. Bring me CHEESE, TOMATOES AND CHOCOLATE!!!!
Here I am today, stuffing my face with Sudafed (the real stuff), Gueiffenisen, Tylenol, more Sudafed, rubbing with Vicks.....hacking. Feeling like cah-cah.
Tara's EOG tests are over with finally. They stress these kids out so much over these tests. I hear that SC is trying to get their EOG tests down to a minimum because of the pressure the kids are under, they can't get an accurate tally of what the child really knows. I know Tara freaked out saying how much she was "afraid" of not passing them. But I assured her she is an A-B student and not to worry.
Now we're in to the final weeks of school....no homework, the school play next week. (Did I mention Tara has a major part in it?) They have a field trip on Tuesday to the bowling alley. They finally get their break June 7th.............SUMMER HERE WE COME!!!
She'll be a big time 5th grader next year...........where has the time gone?
