I love 3-day weekends. Don't you?

I had the day off on Wednesday. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to spend it reading, relaxing or sleeping. I had two doctor's appointments. Little Man and I both suffered through extensive allergy testing. In a nutshell, we're allergic to dust and everything outside. (trees, grass, pollen) I'll be on Singulair and a nasal antihistamine. Little Man will take Singulair along with his Zyrtec. I will start getting allergy shots next week. He will only need them if his meds don't work. I can already tell a difference with him even though it's only been 4 days. I might notice a difference when I actually start squirting this nasty stuff up my nose.

Later in the day, I got a cavity filled. It was quick and painless.




Last night's concert was great. I never got to see New Kids On The Block as a kid, so this was my last chance. The guys put on a fantastic show. I didn't have my camera because I was worried they would take it from me. I took two crappy pics with my phone. I also have a few video clips. I'll go through those and see if any of them are worth posting. My friends had their cameras though. I'll share some of their pics as soon as I get a look at them.




We're going to a fireworks show tonight. I'm heading to the store now to pick up a few necessities and some lawn chairs. I'm also going to try and find a hat for Little Bit. We don't have any plans for tomorrow, but that could change at a moment's notice.

Crikey - that is nasty - we also went through those test but were lucky to have no allergies.

Singulair is apparently excellent and we may change to it next year if necessary. My little guy is on the Seretide pump and nasal spray....reckon a year or so and he should outgrow it.

Am sure your new meds is gonna change your lives!!

HOw fun to see NKOATB - brings back FOND memories of my youth and some boys....hehe

Ohhhh..those bumps make my skin hurt!! Never had allergy testing...never want to. Do you get hose bumps just from the shots or does that mean you're allergic to something?

I've never had to go through allergy testing and now I'm really glad. That looks miserable!

I bet NKOTB was awesome! Wish I could have gone to see them but I basically had to choose between them and U2 and Bono won.
