Spring is Here

Things are starting to look like Spring here in Mississippi. The grass is starting to pop up in patches of green and the trees are starting to get leaves. Out of all the seasons, Spring is my least favorite. There is only one reason why I don't like Spring and it is.....ALLERGIES. It wouldn't be so bad if it was just me dealing with allergies but Mike and the kids have them too!
I had to take Mac to the dr's office yesterday because he has been fighting another ear infection. He has always had problems with his ears ever since he was born. It seems like we get it cleared up only to have it come back worse than before. We have his hearing checked regularly just because he has so many a year. I get to blame Mike's genes on that one! When Mike was growing up he had bad problems with his ears and still does to this day. At one point the dr's put tubes in Mike's ears to help but they didn't help in fact they did more damage than anything. Once the tubes came out Mike had some hearing loss and has never regained his full hearing. So when the dr put the option out for us to have tubes put in Mac's ears Mike said no.
All of this leads to why I didn't get much stitching done yesterday. I backstitched the saying and put in maybe 10 lazy daisies on A Time For Everything. I am planning on at least finishing the verse up tonight on The Fortunate Traveler. :D

Allergies are a pain to have to deal with. My dd Melanie has terrible cat and outdoor environment allergies. We have a cat, but he hasn't bothered her much as long as she doesn't love him up too much. Even though spring hasn't come to E. Wash. yet, something is in the air and symptoms have returned. Poor girl!

I'm with you, love the weather, hate the allergies. I have eye allergies that I only developed in the last few years. When they get going it looks like I'm constantly in mourning. LOL

Hope everyone is feeling better soon! :D

Rats! What a shame to have to hate spring! Thankfully, I have no allergies, so I can just enjoy the flowers with impunity!!!=)
