Kleenex is our friend.

I can't open my windows. Oh, it's not that they are painted shut or broken. We replaced those crappy windows with Pella windows several years ago.

We all suffer from spring allergies. Every. Single. One. Of. Us. Hubs is using Nasonex and cough drops. (For the drainage.) K- is back on her seasonal Children's Zyrtec and will be through mid-June. (Though I've just signed up for the Bzz Agent trial of Children's Claritin! I'm excited to try it with her.) Me? I'm taking Advil Cold and Sinus.

I don't know about all of you, but in Ohio they ID us for stuff like that. You are limited on the amount of allergy medication that you can purchase in a period of time for fear that you are making met*ham*phe*ta*mine*s with it. (Can't use enough *, sorry.) Oh, we have to sign for it, too. It's behind the pharmacy counter so you almost feel like a criminal for having allergies and a nasty runny nose.

So if you'll pardon me, I may wiping my nose excessively. Ah yes. The season is here.

Day 15: Love is honorable. Live with your wives in an understanding way (I don't think they mean plural) . . . and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life. -- 1 Peter 3:7

Choose a way to show honor and respect to your spouse that is above your normal routine. It may be holding the door for her. It might be putting his clothes away for him. It may be the way you listen and speak in your communication. Show your mate that he or she is highly esteemed in your eyes.

Ah, yes, my personal item of choice is Su*da*phed and I have to sign for it and I always feel like such a chump. I hate it hate it hate it that some idiots have reduced us to feeling like criminals when we purchase nasal items we need. :sigh:
