For two weeks, my allergies and asthma have kept me out of the gym. I am tired and frustrated and want my lungs to just GET BETTER. My voice still isn't all the way back, the prednisone course is almost done, and I just feel lazy and stupid and weak. I was all set to go today, but then I wake up, and it hurts to breathe. So I take my inhaler, and now my heart is racing and I'm shaky. This means no gym today.

New plan: Set alarm for early, take inhaler, go back to bed, wake up and go to the gym a couple hours later.

I hate spring.

Sfogliatella dough, you are determined to beat me, aren't you? First the actual making of you, now the difficult rolling. That's alright --- I can use the workout. Oh, I will defeat you!

This happens every freaking year. Two years ago, it hit pneumonia before getting better. Last year was pretty brutal, and this year, I'm finally seeing an allergist.

It starts off simple enough, with sneezing and sniffles and whatnot. But then my voice disappears, I cough, can't breathe, and then the doctors start throwing more meds at me. The prednisone is for the asthmatic bronchitis. I'm on two nose sprays twice a day. I'm on a maintenance inhaler twice a day, plus a rescue one as needed. Then I'm on allergy pills. I just finished a round of antibiotics as a precaution. I'm not allowed outside, and I can't even roll down my car windows. Being sick and on meds throws my body off, and add all that to not being able to be active (and feeling like I'm wasting money by not going to the gym) ...

I feel like crap, and I'm just so CRANKY.

Can we have winter back?

Heaven help me, I've caught the Lady Gaga bug.

At least it took the US Army to infect me.

I hate the unemployment system. Hate it, hate it, hate it. It's too confusing, and the representatives lie and try to muscle callers into saying what they want them to say. We're out of work, people. That's frustrating enough. And you're going to try and intimidate me, too?

I give and I give and I give, because that's what I am, I'm a giver and it just never seems to be enough.........When is it going to be enough, when will the response be getting something back? I'm pulling back, I'm pulling away, the ball is in your court. I'll see you later, if you care at all.....

Am I the only one who goes around writing odes to things in their mind? Will someone please tell me they spend time and effort writing odes to inanimate objects like pockets and lighting fixtures?

LOL, I don't do that but I am always belting out impromptu tunes about my dog. She loves it.

I put my dogs' names into pre-existing songs. Although I did just write some lyrics for one of them.

I made up a song for my BFF's doggie.

And now I'm working on one for her puppy.

Man, I'm always writing little songs or sonnets or something to things in my mind. Yesterday I decided I needed to make one of those Bud Light Real Men of Genius ads for - wait for it - beef noodle soup. Just because I had some and it was yummy. "They said it couldn't be done, because you didn't have a stove, but you just broke into your neighbor's house and kept right on boiling. So we salute you, Mr. Beef Noodle Soup Inventor. Where's the beef? Right here, little old '80s lady. And we have noodles, too." "Mr. Beef Noodle Soup Inve-e-entor!" If that doesn't prove that I'm at least a higher level of crazy, I don't know what does.

I wish my particular ailment were more visible and socially understood. It would make living with it a lot easier.

Also: I need to try harder to stop seeing what I want to see and just see what's really there.

That's a good one! I love those commercials. When I hear I new one I always bust out in laughter.

I like that kind of eccentricity. One of my exes (ugh --what a terrible phrase) used to sing the "No More Rice Krispies!" opera song to our poodles.

Such things add flavor to the mundanities of life. Which I happen to enjoy.

I'm going to duct tape you in the catbox if you don't calm down. The lights are off, everyone else is in bed, and you're running around like Nascat 5000.
