Bee Happy

I have been sick for days with the dreaded pollen headache. It's seasonal but its seems like a very long season.I was taking OTC medicine every day and it was working up until the beginning of the week when I started feeling a dull ache in my sinus area. I looked online at and read the high pollen counts for my area, oh that's why I feel like crap!! Up until recently I didn't even know I had allergies, just thought I was stressed, pms, or had menopause! I was in South Florida for a year and didn't have one episode, but as soon as I moved back to Gainesville within 2 days I had all the symptoms, I finally put two and two together. I went to the doctor because after three days I wasn't getting any better and I wasn't getting any work done! Now I have some prescription medicine and it's not cheap! so we'll see. I am still grateful for the pollen because I love greenery, and I love trees! Gainesville is known for being a city full of trees. The above ATC reminds me to Bee Happy under any circumstance! xxxooo Astrid

Ooo Astrid, those dreaded sinus headaches are a bear. I'm glad you were able to get some relief, at least for the head (not the pocketbook ... ouch!). I do love your little BEE Happy ATC ... hope you're having a magnificent weekend! -Dana

Astrid, I'm so sorry about the allergies! Yuck. I can relate - I'm on two kinds of pills (singulair and claritin cocktail) and my allergies are still going crazy! Every day I go out to the car to find it covered in pollen, it's really bad up here. (Seattle, about as far from Gainesville as you can get!)

Thanks for the kind words on my blog - Rexy is doing much better and seems to have just an ordinary cold now, as do the rest of us. Sigh.

Your little Bee Happy ATC is super cute!
