Shhhh, Do You Hear That?

SILENCE.

The kids started back to school today. It feels really strange to have them start back this late into the new year but at least they are gone. Wait, that sounds terrible, doesn't it? What I meant to say was; it feels really nice to have the house to myself this morning and I am going to take full advantage of my quiet time, probably by taking a nap because, shitdamn, I am tired.

Benadryl will do that to you and, I am once again riding the Benadryl train courtesy of yet another episode of random lip swelling. The swelling started last night and I am at a loss as to what could have triggered an allergic reaction this time, given that I ate nothing unusual prior to the onset of the swelling.

Dr. Google has been absolutely no help with the issue and I am now seriously considering a trip to a real doctor, quelle horreur! The horror part of the equation being my suspicion that the doctor will simply pat me on the head and tell me to watch more closely what I eat because, apparently, I am allergic to something and, that will be $300, thanks for coming in.

I can't afford a $300 doctor bill on top of the bill from the emergency room from last week's broken teenager and Benadryl is only, like, six bucks a box, so...

yeah.

And, now, while it is quiet in my house; I am going to take a nap. Because I can.

Also, I am going to refrain from operating machinery today, because; the Benadryl box said that I should. Also, I don't actually own machinery, unless you count a washing machine as machinery and, I can't actually operate that, anyway since I am still waiting for the new timer.

Oh my god, it just occurred to me! I am probably having a delayed allergic reaction to the laundromat.

Stranger things have happened.
