This has not been my favorite week. I haven’t felt well. I’m not sure if it is allergies or something worse but nothing seems to really help. I feel tired, stuffy, with sore throat, sneezes, congestion and itchy eyes. Luckily I haven’t taken any PTO time yet so I could afford a sick day (or my version of a sick day where I still work 3 hours!). I have to travel this weekend for a family event and I’m kind of dreading it. I hate flying when I’m all stuffed up. No fun! (Btw, this might be the end of my 7 ticket, 3 year streak of free tickets from United. We will see.)
To make matters worse I made carrot soup with carrots I got from the bountiful basket. While the soup was delicious, as I went for a second helping a bubble of the liquid spit up at me and landed on my arm. It was very hot and it blistered my skin almost immediately. Ouch! It really hurts. I have been applying hydrogen peroxide and gauze bandages so that it doesn’t get infected but its still very sore and tender. It got wet when I was in the shower this morning and it stung like crazy (even worse than the hydrogen peroxide.). I think I better wait a while before introducing it to chlorine and definitely salt water!
That’s all you can say about that. Maybe its an over-share but when has that stopped me on my blog. Today I went to Walgreens to get more guaze and I had to wait for many minutes for a lady to get all of her extreme couponing done. So annoying! I’m feeling tired and a little cranky. Grrrrrr
