Tales from the Trenches: I knew it was coming.

Mark it on the calendar.  Today is the day I officially had to start K- on allergy medication.  I have to do that during the spring, often mid-late March and all the way through to mid June.  Apparently, she was good all day, but then started falling to pieces this evening when I got home.  She was just not acting herself and was just whining and falling apart all over the place.  We pressed on, had her finish her homework, take a bath and I had her go to bed a little early.  She's had the medicine in her for about an hour now and she is so much better.  Thank goodness for Claritin!  (In our case, store brand Claritin.) 

Spring is here!  The allergy medicines are out, the robins are so loud that it sounds as if they are screaming, thunderstorms were last night and more things seem to be greening up. 

About time!

Smiles in my day:
-  My grandfather isn't doing particularly well, but he is holding his own.  That's something!
-  The neighbor calling to let Hubs know that he had a brake light out.  Better to have someone tell you than to get a ticket.

Have a great day!

Thanks for the reminder! Poor Lil hasn't had her "nose medicine" for the past two nights. For some reason, Daddy is MUCH better about remembering it. Huh.

Poor K. As much as I love spring, I LOATHE the allergies that go with it.

We're having a humdinger of a t-storm so I'm off.
