I woke up this morning with a sore throat. A sore throat on top of my dripping nose, itchy eyes, itchy ears, itchy throat and sneezing! I was miserable. Don’t you feel sorry for me? I did not clean anything new. There I said it. BUT! I did clean up after breakfast which is really saying a lot, considering I had to blow my nose every 30 seconds. And I also mustered enough strength to make us a comfort food breakfast: chocolate chip waffles. They were amazing.
I called four different doctors’ offices trying to get the quickest appointment. One thirty was the soonest I could be seen, unfortunately it is also naptime for Missy Miss. So I made JW come home early so I could go to the doctor and let Ely sleep. I got nasal spray, eye drops and told to use Claritin and NOT the D kind. Aaaahhhhhhh. Praise the LORD, I do feel better now.
My doctor also informed me that the reason I am getting an allergic reaction after dusting is because I HAVE DUST MITES. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWW!!!! As disgusted as I am, my commitment to cleaning is stronger than ever. Must. Kill. Dust. Mites. Tomorrow.
I am bummed that I lost a cleaning day today but this is a day by day process. And just because I was allergically unable to clean doesn’t mean I was unable to watch others do so. While I cleaned up breakfast, Eliana told me she needed to clean her kitchen:
I gave her a paper towel squirted with my (kid safe) all purpose cleaner:
Cleaning is contagious, thank God allergies aren't.
