We had a very nice turkey day, followed by Charlie having a big old allergy flareup on Friday afternoon & evening, persisting through Sunday morning. Rash, cough, vomiting, wheezing. Not a lot of fun. We think he may be allergic to dogs, since he spent most of Thursday playing with, hugging, and kissing my brother's dog and otherwise didn't have any unusual exposures.

Fortunately he was good about taking his Albuterol via nebulizer--we have an inhaler but he won't use the staging chamber thing that helps him to inhale it properly, and the neb just works better because it doesn't require him to be able to breathe well to use it. So we got through the weekend without an ER visit, yay! However the Albuterol made him hyper like whoah. Sunday night he was feeling fine, as evidenced by his getting up at 1:30 am and playing until 3 am.

Monday I dropped him off at school and took the day off from work--I only have a few days left for the fiscal year (which doesn't end until March 31) but I was at the end of my rope, so heck with it. I lay on the couch pretty much all day and it was AWESOME. I haven't taken a day off where I didn't have to do anything in, jeez, months I guess.

This morning I'm feeling pretty good--I woke up at 5:30, 30 minutes before my alarm, and was rested enough that I got up and puttered around instead of going back to sleep. And I got to take my shower without a little helper pushing me into the shower and shutting the door for me, unlike most mornings. So today it's back to the grind but it feels much less grindy.
