Absolutely miserable

Well, I don't think it's a cold. It's full blown allergies. My eyes are bloodshot and watering; my nose is running; I'm sneezing; and I just wish my head would go ahead and explode. I took a benadryl about an hour ago and it hasn't done anything.
My yard is just pitiful. With all the rain we've had, the weeds are about two feet tall. (Gee, I wonder why I'm having allergies) I know the City is going to get on to me soon. Josh started mowing the lawn tonight. But of course... once again, the lawnmower quits working. I call my brother and he tells me things on the phone thinking that I have a clue about spark plugs and what-not.

"You probably just need to remove the spark plug and clean it."

"I don't even know where the spark plug is."

"It's on the front of the mower."

"O.k., how do I remove it?"

"You should have a spark plug socket in your tool box."

"What does it look like? Here, talk to Josh, he's the one that will have to do it."

Maybe it's because I'm so miserable, but I don't have the patience to pretend that I am of a mechanically sound mind. Yeah, I've bragged of having the knowledge to put oil and anti-freeze in my car. I can change the air filter and headlight bulbs. But that's the extent of my knowledge. Where's a man when I need one? I am not even asking for a boyfriend. How about a boy-friend... just friend that could help me out once in a while? Is that too much to ask for?

Well, I took a tylenol p.m. and hopefully that will at least just knock me out for a while so I won't feel so awful. Sorry for the pity party today. I hope to be back to my old self soon.

Oh, I did put my letters in the mail today. We'll see what gets done about the speech class at Josh's school. I'll keep you informed. I'll post the letter later. It's on my school computer.

Well, time to get ready for bed.

Does your church offer those type of services? My church has a program where single mothers or single women can get help with stuff like lawnmowers from a group of men from church. They do this once a week.

I know what you are going through with the allergy stuff. It totally sucks. I have a cough I can't seem to get rid of. Had it for a month. Who has time to go to the doctor?
