Happy César Chávez Day!

Thanks to César Chávez, I have the day off! Woo!

Read about César and why we celebrate him.


I have seasonal allergies and this season has been espically bad for me. One of the many things I am allergic to is eucalyptus. It just so happens that there are about 10 zillion eucalyptus trees at work. In fact, there is a gove of them on campus. So it's not been a fun time. Even when I'm in the office, I sneeze and my eyes itch horribly. The shuttle just happens to let us off at the eucalyptus grove, so I end up having to walk thru it, and of course, I step all over the leaves, so then it's on the bottom of my shoes. I tried to wash the bottom of my shoes one day and that was a big mistake. It was like eucalyptus vapor all over the place. It also got on my hands. The floral hand soap in the ladies room didn't help matters. Oh, that was an awful day.

But today I'm at home. No eucalyptus here. However, an hour ago the gardener for the people next door showed up and cut their grass and then used the leaf blower to clean up. So the smell of cut grass sent me over the edge. I finally had to take a Clarition. I'm not supposed to take them, but I just can't take another day of this. Hopefully it will kick in soon.


Have a good weekend!

Enjoy your 3 day weekend...I take what seems to be a handful of allergy med's every morning...claritin, a prescription med and a couple of
"snorts/bumps" of I keep a bottle of Bausch & Lomb Allergy eye drops nearby at all times...the drops work wonders.
