What is it about this time of year? It is so green and beautiful sometimes it feels blinding. Your eyes are not yet used to the intensity of the sun and the color and the vibrance. You watch everything come to life and go from dormant and still to beautiful and alive. And as we watch the world become beautiful again we suffer. We sneeze, we cough, we have headaches and sore throats and stuffiness. It almost doesn't seem fair.
The time when your body most wants to be outside soaking up the sun you are either stuck inside or go out and suffer. Up until this wee we were opting to get outside as much as possible and just bath when we came in. I thought we had a handle on it (I was the one suffering the most) until Grace started coughing so bad it's effecting her breathing. She is up a good part of the night and wakes around 5:45 because she is so sick of laying in bed coughing. Not at all fun!
So now we are resigned to either enjoy the beauty from our window (temporarily) or take Benadryl and go outside exhausted. I love Spring but I think we're ready for summer. :D
