First, let me say thanks to all the delurkers.  Nice to meet those of you who are new to me.  And nice to have some old friends stop back by.  I know it has been a quiet week here in Swissland as I’ve had a bout with hay fever.  I haven’t had it for some time, and oh how I had forgotten the horror.  The congestion.  Inability to sleep.  breathe. eat. function.  And because you’re not running a fever, not vomiting, not contagious, you get to go to work.  In my case that means you also get to spend your day trying to make people who are really sick feel somewhat better.  Not so easy when you’d like to lie down in the bed next to theirs and catch up on your sleep.  On Thursday night, when I hadn’t slept through the night in 2 days, I took 2 Benadryl at 8:30, went to bed at 9.  Somehow managed to answer the phone when CP called at 10 (No I don’t know how I did it.  I don’t know if I even carried on a coherent conversation). Slept till 1.  Took another round of Benadryl and slept in till 6:30 (since I’ve been going to the gym in the AM 6:30 is sleeping in.  Weird).  I slogged through my day on Friday and came home a little early, and took a little nap.  Went to bed early again.  I woke up yesterday feeling more human than I’ve felt all week.  So of course I went out and about all day.  First to the quilt shop for the block of the month club.  And then again for shopping at the new Kohl’s with my mom.  (Oh Kohl’s….how do I love thee…let me count the ways…)  Sorry.  In all honesty, for a place that has only been open about a week, it was clean (meaning even though piles of people had been in there the place didn’t look demolished) there weren’t long lines at the registers, the staff was pleasant, helpful.  Makes one enjoy shopping.  More than you do already.  So picked up some new jeans for my weekend away to see my friend in NY this week.  And 3 new shirts.  I haven’t been shopping in ages and it was fun.  Now I just have to wash it all!   



  1. I still have not made it to the new Kohls that just opened up here…

    Hope you are feeling better.
