As simple as can be.
Cuz I'm tired, but I'll be darned if this to-do
doesn't get crossed of today's to-do list.
Actually, I spent most of Saturday and a good majority
of Sunday in a Benadryl induced fog.
We went out to dinner Friday night.
Nothing fancy, just Chick-fil-A.
I had the Asian chicken salad.
That was at about 7 p.m.
I awoke at approx 1 a.m. from a dream
that I was drowning.
It wasn't a dream.
My soft palate and uvula were so swollen
it took concerted effort to breath.
My chest felt heavy.
My pulse raced.
And I panicked, which only exacerbated the symptoms.
I knew we had Benadryl tablets somewhere
and after fumbling around for what seemed like forever,
I was able to swallow one.
I should've taken two.
Just over 30 minutes later I began to feel some relief,
but never was able to get back to sleep.
I knew my eyes were swollen, but didn't get a good
look at them til daylight.
is basically what I saw looking back at me in the mirror,
expression and all.
This was the third episode I've had like this.
So, I guess it's time to do some ingredient investigating.
I'm still not feeling quite up to snuff,
*cue the tiny violins*
but despite all that, we were able to get some work done on Saturday.
Well, Mr worked and I kind of just, you know...
drug around behind him and tried to contribute as best I could
by doing little things like taking pictures.
That's helping, right?
Let's cut to the chase with just a few of those pics now, shall we?
He cut two cedar trees down.
One was half dead, the other pretty healthy,
but they had to go mainly because they're in the
way of the shop that will be built next year.
I think, too, that the walnut tree will appreciate
having more breathing room.
he dug a nice deep, long trench with his
grown-up Tonka Toy for drainage from
the SE downspout to keep the rainwater away from the house.
He installed the pipe tonight
and will probably (hopefully) get it buried tomorrow.
I'm gonna hit "publish",
cross this off my to-do list,
and hit the hay, as they say.
Thanks for stoppin' by.
We do appreciate y'all.
G'night and God Bless.
