It's so long ago now, I'm not sure.
WEEKS ago, literally, back in Canada on the last day we were on the boat I put on some sunscreen. I had an, um, extremely nasty allergic/chemical reaction. I looked rather like someone had taken a blowtorch to my face and then things had swollen up and crusted over.
It also went on and on and on and on.
I ended up seeing a dr. here cause it just wasn't going away, and she prescribed a whole new regime of medications, which have left me quite, ah, sleepy shall we say. As in every waking movement was an act of pure will power. That was fun with the move.
Today is the first day in, I think, over six weeks that I have not had to take an anti-histamine in the daytime.
It was d.i.v.i.n.e.
I finished one book...if you care to look at the list of books read for 2010, my reading has slowed WAAAAAYYYYY down during this time, and I completed NINE paintings today with another four on the racks for tomorrow. (I kid myself that I will have time, but what the heck, live in hope.)
The various drugs have been reduced gradually over the last little while and I am down to a hefty night time dose and that's it.
Keep your fingers crossed for me that it all goes away when this is over.
All told, aside from being anti-histamine free, today was lovely, a day spent reading, painting, eating and hanging out with the kids. Aside from an hour or so of algebra homework (in Catalan no less) it was amazing.
Algebra is amazing too, in its own way; but can I just say that the division of poly-numerals is more complicated than most of us need, and we should all be very glad indeed that it is not a skill that we have to put into daily use.
Truly, something to be grateful for right there.
