I went to my allergist’s office again this morning because let’s face it, other than my house, this is probably the place I spend most of my time. It was time for my monthly maintenance shots. I was dressed in my work-out gear because I always try to be as stylish as possible and/or I had plans to work-out when I returned home. The nurse noted my clothing choice and advised me not to do anything active for four hours. Apparently this could raise my blood pressure and cause a systemic reaction while my body is processing the shots.
The real question here is, does laundry/grocery-shopping/cleaning fall in the ‘active’ category?
I’m guessing yes. Thankfully, blogging is a breeze.

As a kid I loved it that allergies kept me away from dusting, yard-work, sweeping, vacuuming, and anything else that stirred my allergies. I thought it was a breeze to have laundry duty. Fast forward to the lady with seven kids I’ve become, and I’m begging to trade… somebody pass me the broom!
