I think I’ve got a cold.
When we first got our dog, like almost immediately, my nose stuffed up and I started having a lot of sneezing fits. I don’t know how many tissues I’ve gone through over the last five days but it must be close to a box full by now.
At first I thought it was because our pup smelled like the pine shavings she’d been kept on in the barn where she was raised, but I gave her a bath on Saturday and my nose continued to be irritated and well runny.
Then I worried that it was allergies. I am allergic to animals with fur, but I usually get a little wheezy. So far no wheezing, but there’s the troubling sniffles.
I’ve now come to think that it might be a cold because my sniffles were a lot better yesterday. As I’ve mentioned a few times in my recent posts I’ve been really tired this week. I’ve been blaming it on the puppy, but I think it might be because I’ve also been fighting a virus.
Speaking of tired – I’ve been walking around like I’m in a fog. I think Chris is over tired too. We’ll go into a store and just mill around instead of heading directly to whatever we went to the store to get. We’re also forgetting what we went to the store in the first place for too. I mean, we’ve needed a cordless phone battery for a while now and each time we go to the store we totally forget to even look for one!
I’ve been so tired that I’ve even been forgetting to take my Crohn’s meds and pain meds!
Do you ever get that way when you’re tired? You have to do things – work, go shopping, care for children or whatever – but you’re so tired that you can’t really think straight? That’s the way I’ve been all week.
