Sick Again... Seriously?!

Since moving to Florida, I've been sick more often than I ever was during the entire five years I lived in Colorado. I keep joking that I must be allergic to everything in the Sunshine State, but now I'm actually starting to wonder if that might be true. Lately my head feels a bit foggy and my nose a bit snotty (or maybe that's just me, something my husband might say is up for debate). I'm having a hard time believing that I'm sick again, because my immune system typically kicks most things in the rear.

I usually give thanks for good health, but now I'm starting to curse the pollen that's been floating through the air these past few months. My sinuses don't seem to appreciate the abundance of flora that surrounds us in central Florida. I, on the other hand, really do enjoy the big beautiful trees that hover over our parking lots and roof lines. Hopefully the pollen will subside soon, and then I can get back to being less snotty. At least in the head cold sense.

Now I'm off to go sneeze another few hundred times. Talk to you all later. :)


  1. Oh my gosh, I have been the exact same way since moving to California. I lived in Chicago for 7 YEARS and nannied for two kids (we know what germ monsters they can be...) and never really even got a cold. Then I move to CA and I'm stuffy or sneezing or something every other month. I've heard this year's allergy season is supposed to be one of the worst... :(

    Hope you feel better soon!!

  2. Oh no! I hope you start feeling up-to-par very soon!!

  3. OMG. I live off of allergy pills in FL during Springtime :P No fun at all!!! Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Oh no! I hate being sick. The weather definitely has A LOT to do with it. Northern fronts bringing in nasty things that my nose doesn't like. Ugh! But that's the south for you. The pollen from the oak trees is the worst around here. Everything's covered in a nasty yellow-green layer of it. Cars, streets, sidewalks, and even pets. Poor Astro. He's even been sneezing a lot lately too.

    Take some claritin or zyrtec and feel better, pretty girl!

  5. Boo. Feel better. The allergens here on the east coast are brutal.
