The other night I started sneezing up a storm!! I have bad allergies, but normally it's the weather that makes them go crazy. They were calling for rain in the the forecast so I am assuming it's the lovely weather that's brought all the allergies on me all of the sudden.....
Well....I thought 'sneezing' would be my only problem...
WRONG!!!! BIG time wrong in fact!
I woke up the other morning with my eyes swollen shut, not a pretty picture---in fact I probably could have scared my husband if he could have seen me. (By the way I did take a picture with intentions of posting it, but decided I didn't want to scare y'all away--or bother the squeamish, so I decided on my lovely cartoon on the side instead...nice me, huh?)
So back to my ever so lovely swollen eyes--
I wake up, can't open them...so I stumble to the rest room feeling my poofy eyes (knowing exactly what has happened)--convincing myself it isn't that bad I pry my eye open so I can see myself in the mirror....BAD! I looked like I gained 20lbs just in my eye lids... (can you see why I choose not to upload the picture?) Soo...now I stumble to the kitchen to get my eye-ice pack out of the fridge-almost knocking over the orange juice (or milk--I couldn't see), now I head to the bedroom to find my phone so I can call in sick (I obviously don't need to be driving to work with my eyes swollen shut...if I'm knocking over stuff in the fridge I can only imagine what I will do on the road!) Well, I realize I don't have my boss's phone number memorized, I need to pry my little eye open again so I can look up the number--pathetic I tell ya!
After a good few hours of sleeping I was able to somewhat open them...can I just tell you I am VERY thankful for my sight (and for my toes...I pretty much stumped every one of them!)
I am proud to say I have lost those 20lbs I've gained in my eyes...now if I could just figure out how to loss it that quickly in my waist?!
