I was pretty bummed yesterday. I finally got my Christmas tree, a big, imperfect, live tree. Within a couple hours of getting it set up, I got a scratchy sore throat and itchy eyes. After putting a lot of thought into whether to go with real or artificial, I was not happy with the thought of being allergic to my tree.
Today I'm feeling better though, I think I just needed the dust to settle a bit. I've started back on my allergy protocol. My new neti pot is helping a lot... anyone with sinus problem NEEDS a Neti (for nasal irrigation). It's pretty easy to do, even for someone like myself who hates getting water near my nose. Once I got pure salt and warm enough water, it has been quite pleasant to use.
I think I'll keep it Now to figure out where my decorations are...
