Plagued by Allergies

I wasn't actually looking forward to leaving Texas when we moved to the Philippines, but I was looking forward to leaving the Texas allergies that have caused me so much misery these 9+ years in Dallas. I was excited to start over in a new climate! So, for a month, I have been breathing easy. It was wonderful! WAS wonderful. Yesterday, they came back with a vengeance! And, today, I have not been able to breathe through my nose. I HATE it!! And, of course, all my allergy medication is in our sea shipment, which is being held in Customs right now. I'm not sure when we'll get it, but I'd love to call with my nasally voice and beg some Customs officer to please, please let me retrieve my prescriptions. I seriously doubt it will do any good. So, for the meantime, I'm living on Vicks. Thank goodness for Vicks!!

Hey girl - Thanks for all your sweet comments on our blog. I'm finally catching up on yours - life has been a little busy for some reason..smile... I am so excited for your adventure and so glad to keep updated through your blog. That's great that the kids like their teachers! Hope the allergies get better. I feel your pain - when I was pregnant, I couldn't take my usual daily rx. However, I started using saline spray every day and that really helped along with the occasional benadryl. The pic of you and Nicholas sleeping is too precious!

Steve bought something called a nose bidet or neti pot that seems to be really helping him. I saw it on Oprah. You basically clean out your nose by pouring salt water through it and it gets rid of the allergens on your nose hairs and thus clears up your symptoms. Hope you get better.
