Thankful Thursday, It's that time of year again.


Yes it's spring and you know that that means....Allergy season. Not only are the cars yellow but right now the air is too. If you are in an area that doesn't have bad pollen, you don't know what you are missing. Just be thankful for that.

Right now I am so thankful for Benedryl. A few hours ago as I was driving home through the yellow air, my eyes began to bug out a bit. Yes my eyes were swelling. That went along with my scratchy throat, eyes, skin and hair.. Yes I believe my hair even itches. So I stopped by the local drug store and got some Benedryl. And now I am feeling better. I am by no means feeling good but at least I am not feeling like walking death anymore.

I am thankful that I volunteered to take the lead on the United way campaign where I work. I went to my first meeting today and I saw some people I know. It is always nice to see old friends.

I am thankful that the bluebirds have already decided to use the house I put up on Sunday. I am also thankful that I can make these houses myself. (photo to follow)

I am thankful that my youngest made it through this past grading session with no failing grades. Talk about a load off my shoulders.

And finally, I am thankful again for my green thumb. The plants are doing well and I think that they will do even better this year since we are downsizing a big.

Have a Great Thankful Thursday,
Greg

I'm thankful that my allergies are mostly controlled by a daily Claritin!

Allergies... ugh... the only thing I dislike about spring are the allergies. Mine only act up when I smell lilac flowers and you know those just happen to be the ones everyone has to pick and put on their desks at work. But they look nice so I'm thankful for a pretty flower I suppose. *shrugs shoulders*

The allergies are horrible this year. But if I took Benadryl, I'd be out cold. I sure couldn't drive with that stuff!
