Oof. I’m a mess. I can’t tell if what’s going on here is allergies, or if I’m actually sick, but I feel like crap. I woke up yesterday with some congestion in my left ear. Then later in the morning I spent time with an adorable dog to whom I am also quite allergic. I knew that going in, so I was hopped up on Claritin and Sudafed as a precaution. The rest of the day was gradual decline as my sinuses got more and more swollen. I made it through last night thanks to a double dose of Benadryl. (Apologies to my wife, because Benadryl makes me snore.)

More Sudafed this morning. It helps with the sinuses, and keeps┬áthe unpleasant sensation in my ear under control. Thankfully I don’t have much I have to do today beyond laundry and a little house-cleaning.

And maybe a nap.
