Are you still there? Blogmas Day 16

It’s funny as things seemed to be going great for my blog weird things starts to happen. I finally got some time to check out my favorite blogs, engage and check out the latest happenings.

I’m shocked to learn that I’m no longer able to view my followers. I am not sure if anyone is still here. If you’re still around I’d appreciate it if you not only liked this post but also comment.

I’m just going to take this as an opportunity to start over. Life happens I guess. I have so many things planned out for this blog/website. I’m currently working on my logo and the whole look and feel of it. I’m excited and I can’t wait for you all to see it.

Allergies – How are you coping? Tips to Remedy the situation – Blogmas Day 15

This time of the year is great and not so great for people with allergies and sinusitis. It’s even worse with the onset of Covid 19 you wouldn’t want to be in public sneezing. The looks alone will make you want to sink into the ground.

I was not always like this but I guess with age and the environment ♻️ things happened. I’ve tried my best to stay away from things that triggers my allergies and when it gets out of control here’s how I remedy the situation:

1. Hot baths are a lifesaver -staying in the shower a little longer clears up my nostrils and I can now breathe a sigh of relief.

2. Get comfy – I always ensure that I have on a pair of socks, comfy pajamas, and my favorite blanket around. Layer your clothing when you’re going out.

3. Garlic Tea – bless the ancestors this remedy has many healing properties.  Garlic tea helps to clear the mucus. I’d recommend travel with mints or have your travel-size toiletries with you. We sure don’t want to move around with garlic breath. Wearing a mask doesn’t help either.

4. Find your Trigger- Stay away from Dairy- Dairy products are a trigger sadly, I love my pasta, I love my milk and cookies but if I want to be whole and not sneezing like crazy 24/7 I better cut off or lay low on the dairy products. It’s important to find your trigger. Almond milk is a good substitute.

5. Antihistamine– I am not a big fan of popping pills but on last resort I take some histal tablets- they’re drowsy but does the trick. I’d also caution you to check with your doctor before you start taking any form of medication.

Do you suffer with allergies? What kind of remedy to you take to minimize the effects?

Single at Christmas – Blogmas Day 14

It’s crazy how sometimes you feel as if things are just not going the way you want them to. You pay your bills on time, you take care of your family, water the plants, feed the cats. Somehow you are left to find yourself sitting down looking out in oblivion. Your innermost thoughts are trapped inside wanting to scream. You catch your breath, you wipe the tears, closing your eyes just wishing this feeling of hopelessness would go away.

Somebody anybody, when will it be my turn. You’re doing everything by the books, you pay your goddamn taxes, you have no tickets, you help your neighbor carry her groceries, but,you just can’t catch a break.

Sally* my friend decided to vent to me just now-Text message notification on my phone interrupted her thoughts –

” I miss you- JD”

Why now? It’s been (6) months after that messy breakup, the breakup of the century, breakup in a pandemic. We warned her but she didn’t listen, he is tall, athletic, has a successful business, the sex was great but; he had a bad temper. Things didn’t work out, he cheated on her.

Sally, is one of my closest friends and it has been a rough couple of months for her.

“I’m not going back there, nope. I’ve moved on. It has been a long and hard journey but I’m in a better place right now. I am up for a promotion at work and there’s no time to get caught up with great sex JD. “

Being single at Christmas time in a pandemic is different. There are days when she feels as if the world is going to end, days like today when she feels overwhelmed. She has to remind herself of the goal. She has a plan and she will stick to it. She’s now focused on things that were ignored in the past.

How do you cope at Christmas time as a single person?
