Talking to adults

I had the extreme pleasure of having dinner with Geoff, his wife Jen, and their adorable daughter Rowan. We went to Sweet Tomatoes so I loaded up on veggies. I was going to go for more salad but I ate soup instead. Wait, we’re not talking about what I ate, we’re talking about the fact that I actually met up with adult humans I’m not related to, had a meal and a conversation! A lot of times when you meet up with new people, it can feel a little awkward, but I thought things were pretty mellow. I wasn’t the best conversationalist due to benadryl brain. I had a bunch of things I could think of to talk about while I was on the way but then I went duh. I’m sure I’ll see them again though. I could get used to having adult friends. I need to get away from home sometimes.

Just because I’m not doing 365 right now doesn’t mean I’m not taking pictures.

All the leaves on the ground make it look like this picture was taken in the fall, but it wasn’t. The oak trees here are bizarre. Around March they lose their leaves. As soon as they lose them they grow new ones, and little clusters of pollen. That pollen and I do not get along. It sets my sinuses to drip mode. I’m also allergic to dust and yesterday we cleaned the house (Zach actually did a lot of the work), so my sinuses were overly inflamed and incensed. ┬áThe whole time I was at chemo with my dad (which today turned out to be 5 1/2 hours) my nose was dripping and I was sneezing. I hadn’t taken any benadryl before we left because I knew with the boring circumstances All I would want to do would be curl up on the floor and sleep. Point being, I need an everyday allergy medication that doesn’t make you drowsy. Zyrtec, Claritin, Allegra, I don’t know. Anyone find one more useful than others?

Otherwise, its been a fair week. We got much needed rain, the house got mostly cleaned, and I went out. We’ll see what I can tackle tomorrow.
