Well….this is something new and I don’t care for it one bit! I was sitting on the couch sewing a dragonfly to a piece of flannel when the top of my nose started itching. Not in a normal way…I can’t even describe the itch. It was so weird that I got up to see if there was something on my nose. There was nothing on my nose but it was twice the normal size. It was throbbing and still growing. What was happening???? I was freaking out! I called the OD from work and she talked me down. I slathered some Tobradex on topically and took two Benadryl. My nose is still a little swollen but at least both nostrils are the same size. I have a pretty good headache at the moment as well. What in the world causes your nose to swell that fast? It’s so strange….plus I took two Benadryl…I could fall asleep any minute now.
My day didn’t start much better so I can say it was at least consistent. Today was the first snow. Nobody wants to drive on the first snow around here. There is always the person who is crawling and the person who is flying and the rest of us who are just trying to make it to work. I didn’t think it was so bad this morning, I even thought to myself “they actually did a good job, must be because it’s the first.” That was my first mistake. I was driving like normal, no problems and then I had to make a choice. Do I take my normal route or do I go for a state route? I opted for the state route, I thought it would be safer….big mistake. I turned onto the road and it took me a second to find the lane it was so bad. I was coming up to my first red light when I tapped my breaks….this was not good. I could see the ice in the tire tracks. I veered a little to the right and used the snow for traction and was able to stop. The poor truck in the lane next to me was having a heck of a time, thankfully he managed to stay in his own lane. He was struggling pretty good which made it easier for me to get in the left lane. About half a mile later the roads weren’t icy anymore, they weren’t great but I could stop which is always important.
Negative Nancy was five minutes or so behind me and said there was a big accident by the icy spot. Forty five minutes later there were more sirens heading that way. I’m glad the way home was much better only now it is so cold I can barely stand it. Stuck in Ohio…
The girls guilted me into trying it. I took one bite and it was dry and we paid her to make this!!! I think that is what bothers me the most, we paid her and she didn’t give us the product we paid her to make. We could have went to a real bakery for what we gave her. She brags about her baking skills and how she wants her own business. I wouldn’t hire her to make anything. For all I know it was that one bite that caused my nose to swell. I think the doctor deserved better than this sorry excuse for a cake. Must be the PMS because I was mad for a while over it.
The rest of the day went okay, except for the cold. All I wanted to do was sit on the couch under a blanket with the tree on. Sadly that is what I was doing when the swollen nose monster attacked my face.
Now I am off to shower and then bed. I hope tomorrow is less dangerous…..Zia
