Easter, April Fools, and my lungs escape attempts

So it looks like Spring is finally springing here in Southern Delaware.  The neighbors even had to call their lawn service to mow their grass on Saturday because it is actually growing.  We do not need to call the lawn service to mow our lawn for two reasons:

1) part of the "rent" agreement for my brother and myself to live at home is that I clean and he mows the lawn
2) Our front lawn is 70% weeds so it's not mow the grass so much as mow the weeds.  I know.  I'm hilarious.  hardy har har har.

Unfortunately for me, weeds=allergies.  This is nothing new.  I am allergic to almost everything on the planet. When I had allergy testing done, I tested positive for 19 of the 24 things they tested for.  I am not allergic to grass or horses or one of the two most common types of dustmites.... and that was about it.  I am allergic to trees, weeds, dogs, cats, and goose/duck feathers.  I'm also allergic to soy and black pepper but that is another issue unto itself.

As a result of the sudden bloom of weeds, my sinuses have decided to flood themselves in mucus.  My sinuses are very generous though, and love to share this with my lungs.  My lungs don't seem to appreciate this though and keep trying to escape my body through my mouth in giant coughing fits.  In order to try to keep them in my chest, I am taking a cocktail of anti-histamines, decongestants, expectorants, and cough suppressants.  Whew.  Hopefully I will feel better soon as I have rehearsal tomorrow for choral society, followed up by band rehearsal Wednesday, and then a trip up to the Philly area to visit some friends.  I would like to be healthy for all of that.

So moving on to the other topics for this post...  Happy April Fool's Day!  I am not pranking you, alas.  I just don't feel like it.  I was more caught up in Easter stuff than trying to prank someone.  The big family Easter was at our house and I am the dessert lady.  I am known for my sweets in the family.  What did I make?  Bread pudding with Jack Daniel's caramel, lemon glazed pound cakeum.  and Holy leftovers, batman.  It was fun and I ate myself into a coma with my extended family, including my Bieber obsessed teenage cousin.  I did not teach her well enough, apparently.

I'm starting to ramble so I think I'll head back to watching NCIS and trying to stay awake.
