Feeling a little guilty for not posting recently, especially after the disappointment I expressed over people starting and then abandoning their blogs. I have killer allergies and I am having a hard time doing anything more than work my 8 hours and sleep this week. I had allergy therapy some years ago (don't ask...it involved lots of needles) and I have been OK but there's something this season that is really getting me. Part of it could be my newly landscaped backyard that I have to mow at least once a week (allergic to grass? check). Part of it could be the voluminous rain here lately( not the nice gentle sprinkling we usually get) that causes mold spores (allergic to mold? check). Or the fact that I stood outside playing softball in the chilly rain last Saturday (dumb enough to do this? check) in a park with lots of weed and trees (yep, allergic to them too). Seattle has actually been the best place I've lived as far as my allergies go...I'm just having a tough spring and haven't been as disciplined as I should be about taking drugs to clear up the symptoms.  And I am not one to call in sick, well, ever (I think I may have had one sick day in the last 5 years).

Frankly, it's not that I am too sick to blog, but rather too hazy and slow to think of anything interesting to say (yeah, that last paragraph all about my allergies is some interesting stuff, let me tell you).

Anyway, I'll be back soon...I feel a rally coming on.
