My nose was runny/slightly congested for a couple of days and my throat was scratchy so I thought it was allergies. That seemed to pass though and now I am just stuck with a cloudy head! I tried a decongestant yesterday, didn't help. Claritin today, didn't help, at least not yet.

I cannot believe how fast time flies! I finally just finished my summer classes and I have one class in the fall left. Then I will finally graduate!

I really am surprised that it is August already. That sounds silly to say I but I feel like it was May yesterday! I have seen a ton of Halloween decorations out in the stores which means Christmas stuff will be soon! Bring it on!!

Hey Jennifer!!! It's great to see you!!!

Hope you feel better soon!!! Enjoy your vacation!!! Good luck in School!!!

The sun is shining right now, but there are heavy storms forecast for later tonight.

My headache is gone!!! Yay!!! I have spent the day trying to catch up on all the things I should have done last night and tackle all the things that I wanted to do today. Busy!

Be MERRY and safe!!!
you sound like me today, I had such a headache at work this morning, also we had quite the storm roll through, thought the power might go our as it was flickering. I wonder if the change in atmosphere pressure is what caused both our headaches? Glad to hear yours is gone now, mine too, only I did not get in a nap, my boss would not allow it!

So nice to see you back again! Must be nice to have those classes done for the summer, now you can relax and enjoy the rest of the summer.
Hope you feel better!
