The Big News from Sonnystone this week is that Nothing Happened…
As the Polar Vortex bore down on us, we turned on the furnace to amend our fireplaces and stayed quite toasty. Feeling a cold coming on, i looked around for some medicine, only to find that I was out of my usual Allegra. There was a bottle of Claritin that had been prescribed a while back and it was only a little past expiration, so I downed one. Accustomed to my 12-hour Allegra, which only works for 8 hours, I had no qualms taking another Claritin about 10 hours later. The next 24 hours were spent nearly comatose, waking only to feel nauseous and afraid that I was having some Silent Event that I should worry about at my age and not toss off to od-ing on Claritin… I got up for a couple of hours and sat in front of the computer, then worried that I might be losing my mind and went back to bed.
When I finally woke up (36 hours after taking the fateful pill), it was like a New Dawn. I felt so refreshed, no cold symptoms, either. If you have to give up a few days to sleep, crashing through a Winter Freeze is the time to do it.
It seems to me that January went by quickly, but I might be in the minority there. February always seems longer than its 28 allotted days. The taxes are begging to be filed, if I can pull myself away, and it is Birthday Month, so I expect to barely turn around and it will be time to leave for Florida in March.
In the meantime, I’ll be immersed, obsessed with the Ancestry. I changed the link to All My Ancestors if you’d like to visit. Between the research and the writing, that’s all I’m up to these days.
I gave up on the Photo Synthesis Picture a day… Engrossed in the ancestors and Stuck inside the house, I quickly tired of taking pictures of my walls. I may have underestimated the Power of Genealogy Addiction..
