Today I Had A Whirlwind Day.

I swear I just woke up.  I thought I should give y'all and update on everything that's occurred since moving.  I really appreciate everyone who left happy, uplifting, and motivating comments.  Love you guys for that!  Anyways, while we were moving we had so much help from my family.  It was such a blessing!  We passed cleaning inspection.  Woohoo!  Now I'm having a hard time finding a place for everything to go.  So the unpacking is taking longer than I want.  **shrug**  As for the whole asthma thing:  I'd been experiencing terrible allergy symptoms for about a month now.  It was worse when I'd wake up in the mornings.  It took me way too long to realize it was dust.  And then I found mold under my daughter's dresser.  That dresser got thrown out.  And then we started moving and deep cleaning, which kicked up all the resting dust.  Yikes!  I had a horrible reaction on the main moving day.  I was coughing, wheezing, sneezing, and wiping my constantly running nose.  It was better when I'd leave the house.  That night (Thursday) we were in our new place and I kept waking up in the middle of the night because I couldn't breathe.  Around 4am (Friday) I called the overnight doctor because it was pretty bad.  I went in and got the nebulizer treatment.  Sweet relief!!  And some medicine.  I'm happy to report that I feel quite normal now and hope that it stays that way.  Today I unpacked, went for my follow-up doctor visit, Britt had her well baby doctor appt (16 pound 6 month baby!), and I also took my 13 year brother to the doctor for a football related injury.  I went to the store twice, made black bean burgers for dinner and now I'm going to go to bed!  Night all!

Whew! All that wears me out just thinking about it! I'm glad you are feeling better. Good luck with the unpacking! I hate that part - I always have a lot of occurrences of "Why did I even bother to pack this???" whenever I'm unpacking.

Oh I hate allergies and asthma! I have allergies mainly. They are off the charts. I was getting shots. My dad got shots for years. Then he started getting allergic to all sorts of new things. We both took ourselves off of the shots. Such a pain! I would be like you on move in day I'm sure.
