Looking for Comfort

Dear Claritin,

I'm breaking up with you

It's not that I don't love you, but you see...
these pollen pellets disguised as pretty flowers
are kickin' my butt!
Despite all of your efforts
(and I know that you've tried to comfort me)
I still feel like someone is shoving tiny feathers up my nose.


And that makes me sneezy
and a little grumpy too.


So I've found myself something a little stronger,
something that will comfort my itchy eyes

 that makes me happy,
and maybe a little sleepy.
But that's okay.
Sleep's not so bad.
I could curl up in my comfy chair 
with my cozy quilt.
(Made by my totally awesome and super crafty sister.)
or...
If I get really sleepy, 
there's always my comfortable bed

But, could someone tell me where I can find some of those house cleaning squirrels?
It's hard to clean house when you're sleeping.

wait- she gave you a parting gift?! What a cool sister :) such a clever fun post Colleen!. Did you use your light box and are those oriole feathers? Well, regardless they make for a super cool picture!

Julie said...

Very cute. I need a house cleaning squirrel too. :) Hope your allergies get better!

Beautiful cherry blossom. It's too bad it's the season again for allergies.

Jientje said...

Aaaah, house cleaning squirrels? If you find them, will you let me borrow them please?

This is too funny! I have the same issues, so I feel your pain. I hope you get some much needed relief soon!

cute!

Creative! Oh and don't break up with your clairitn. Get Clairitn D 24 hours. Makes you feel 100% without the drowsy effect. Does benadryl make you cold? It so makes me cold. Weird, eh?

Oh and where are those dang squirrels? I could use ALL the extra help cleaning/packing/organizing my home.

GREAT (no no) FANTASTIC JOB @ your captures. What a fun post!

That is hysterical. Well, not the part about you being uncomfortable but really the rest is hysterical. What a great post.

Sabrina said...

Oh hon, I feel for you. I used to have severe fall allergies during harvest time where I grew up and I just wanted to die! Even going outside for a walk was miserable and yes the drugs make it worse. Hoping this passes for you soon! Nevertheless, great shots!

Love it, what a fun post. The pollen is kickin' our butts too. I love Spring but UGH!

Heather said...

so funny! glad you found something for your itchy eyes, now to find those cleaning squirrels.

Christopher And Tia said...

ugh, allergies.

I take both claritin AND allegra, and that combination seems to be they key for me.

I hope you start to feeling better :)

brilliant post! Love the blossoms ~ even if they don't agree with you! Not too much blossom out here ~ a week or so maybe :D

Bec said...

I go with a combo of benadryl and sudafed myself ;)

Great shots! Sorry about your allergies. My husband has them too. :( He is taking Alavert and it seems to work ok, but could be better. Hope you find relief soon!

tara said...

aw. allergies are no fun.
but your post sure is.

Jen said...

I love your post, it's so fun!

Dcan said...

This is a great post - I'm still smiling. I'm ready for a nap now even though I've only been up a couple hours.

Megan said...

claritin NEVER worked for me- ever. it's always wonderful when you find the right medicine for your sinuses... now i use a neti pot, but when i was taking sinus meds, it was sudafed all the way.

anneawesome said...

This is great! I love it.

Lisa said...

Your bed does look super comfortable. Love the second pic of the flowers.

kristenly said...

very clever! i love your little photo story!

Melissa said...

What a fun, clever and creative post!

jaime said...

This post? Awesome. And the photos are even better. I love, love, love the pretty flowers. I hate how they make me feel, though.

Rebecca said...

Great post. Claritin works for me but only after years of allergy shots. And Benadryl puts me to sleep...all day! It's good for bedtime though!

Tori said...

That was a fabulous post. I hear you, claritin just doesn't cut it.
