Yesterday, with my head just about ready to explode from the incessant runny nose, sneezing and watery eyes, it hit me full force that hay-fever season is upon us. Not that the season tends to be any more significant for me, because my hay-fever rears its ugly head every two-three weeks! Now, the only difference is, with the wattle blooming and every man and his dog needing to cut their grass every three days, my allergy has been exacerbated. AAAaaarrrgggghhhh! Just to be rid of it!!!!
So yesterday, me being able to function, was at a minimum. Liam was still jumping around excited about birthday prospects and not wanting to go to school....Tahlia was lying on the couch, moaning and groaning about her tonsillitis and didn't go to school...and Ethan was being his usual two-year-old self..."Mummy, can you read this?...Mummy, I need you!....Mummy, Tahlia won't let me...Mummy, Mummy, Mummy." Lol!
Being able to drive to and from school twice, was a miracle. Being able to put dinner on the table, was just as surprising, because there is nothing I can take to relieve the symptoms. Trust me, I've tried everything! I'm one of the lucky ones!! (Yeah sure!*grumble, grumble* add more sarcasm!).
So, getting back to the point of my title, yesterday I was grateful for shoes that were easy to find, "pollipops" for entertainment, very little traffic on the road, green traffic lights, an open chemist, and a school where the ladies in the office took one look at me and no further information was needed as to why I was taking Liam home early!
It was definitely the little things that helped and I have to remember this in the future!
