September, hay fever, school :: Life and Times of Leish

September, hay fever, school

Wow…I thought I was going to make it through the fall without having my ‘weather change’ sinus aggravation since I had a summer ‘cold’.  Not so lucky!  I woke up Sunday with a scratchy throat and some drainage, then Monday was the THE DAY.  Could not breath, sounded awful trying to talk, then my nose would turn on like  a faucet which would have me running for a Kleenex to try to catch the flow.  Lasted that way about an hour at work, then purchased some Sudafed 12 hr and some Afrin nose spray — and the angels were singing Hallelujah.  It didn’t completely get rid of all the symptoms but at least it opened up my nasal passages so I could breath a little better.  Today I went to the chiropractor for an adjustment and had him use his little machine on my face/sinus areas trying to get some relief.  Hopefully this won’t hang around as long as what it has for others — up to two weeks and counting.  I’m on day two and am ready to be done with it.

School is going good so far.  I do pretty much nothing besides homework ALL the live-long-day; but it’s paying off so far.  I have high A’s in both my classes.  Just three more months to go!!  Anatomy and Physiology is difficult, there is SOOO much information crammed into such little things (i.e. cells); it’s mind boggling.  But if I preserver I’ll do good.  My teacher took a dislike to me and my lab partner within the second week of school; but we’re playing nice and trying to stay out of trouble.  I know that people say ‘I didn’t do anything’…in this instance we really didn’t do anything.  Our teacher didn’t like our facial expressions, or the fact that we laughed in class.  So mum’s the word for now…all bookworm and no fun.  Bleh!

I cannot believe that September is already half gone…before you know it Christmas will be here and then we’ll be ringing in a new year.  So much has happened this past year in my life and we’re only nine months into it…hopefully the other four will be sedate and uneventful — except my house could sell and I wouldn’t mind that at all.  I speak that in Jesus Name!!

I did deliveries for work the other day, I went to one of the skilled nursing facilities in town and was waiting for someone to come check the drugs in that I was dropping off.  One of the residents came up to me in his wheelchair and was saying about of stuff, I nodded, smiled, and was like ‘yeah’.  He then proceeded down the hall way to one of the cleaning carts, threw back the side cover, and started unloading stuff off the cart and into his lap.  Then he made a mad dash back down the hallway to me, said  few more words that I could not understand and kept trucking toward his room.  I of course am laughing, because since I wear scrubs for work he probably thought I worked there at the home and I have no IDEA what I gave him permission for…but apparently he felt that he could clean the cart off.  I just let him go!! :)

There has been a lot going  on around here, I feel like I stay busy 24/7 yet don’t get much done.  But…that’s how life goes sometimes.  Right now I’m looking for my bootstraps so I can pull myself up by em’.

Exciting news though…my friends will soon be having their baby.  Nick and Jennifer Spencer can have their bundle of joy anytime after yesterday.  I’m excited!!  Jennifer is even more excited, she just wants to be able to breath again.

Well, I must be going…A & P is calling my name, I have a lot of stuff to try and get done before class tonight and I’ve already wasted three hours of my morning by balancing my checkbook, changing all the burned out light blubs in my house, and writing this blog.  Must get busy!!

Life is good…until next time…ERM.
