So this Spring my allergies have been out of control! I don't know what's different but I am dying. I sit here today with almost no voice, coughing as I type, because of these blasted allergies. And because I can't breathe, I'm having a hard time sleeping. The other night I was laying in bed next to Mark, listening to him snore for over 2 hours, wide awake and frustrated before I finally just got up and watched TV, only better - because we have Netflix. Oh Netflix instant queue, you are the best friend of the insomniac. No more are the days of channel surfing through infomercials. Now are the days of reading a book by Portia de Rossi, thinking of Ally McBeal, adding it to my instant queue and voila - a sleepless night can be spent watching hours of good old 90s iconic television. I guess I have to thank you Netflix, for making me have a love-hate relationship with these allergies, instead of just a hate-hate one.
And in other news (and most importantly when I'm not having allergy attacks) I have been spending large amounts of my free time sewing. I made a cute little shirt and skirt for my niece Abby for her 2nd birthday. ( I am super in love with the little frogs in mason jars on the accent fabric!)
Matching bubble skirts for my nieces Lily and Claire, for Claire's 1st birthday.
And a retro apron for Catherine as a housewarming present (she bought her 1st house - congrats Cat!)
