Summer time is nearing an end in the great NE. I know most of you have kids back in school. We have 3 weeks to go.
It’s been a busy time with camp and Vacation Bible Schools. My boy went to camp for the first time this month. He liked it.
I haven’t been as social on the interwebs partially because of busyness, partially because of my summer hobby of fantasy baseball. I am in a tight race for First with 6 weeks to go.
I have also seen Twitter affect my blog visits. Now, I have to see an article tweeted by a least a couple of people (author doesn’t count) before I check it out, and even then, I am a week behind everyone. Sometimes, the posts have even created controversy and been pulled before I even find out about it (thanks Don Miller and Rachel Evans).
Check this out: there is an album of current bands covering original songs from the Muppets!! You can listen at the link to cool, sometimes rocked-out versions of “Movin’ Right Along”, “Rainbow Connection”, “Bein’ Green”, and the opening song from the TV show.
I am now going to take this opportunity to complain a little. It’s kinda like whining into a vacuum but without the fear of getting my tongue caught.
I finally saw an allergist for a test back in June. I am only allergic to dust (mites), which was kinda surprising that it wasn’t more things, but also helpful. So, I starting taking a nasal steroid and can’t get it to work in my right nostril. It was blocked, maybe with a polyp, the doc later told me. Then I come back from camp with a lot of congestion in my head/throat/chest. Doctor recommends a nasal rinse and overdosing on Mucinex-D. The cops are staking out my house b/c they assume I am making meth now. Haven’t taken any antibiotics although it may have passed to an infection at some point but i was so drugged with OTC stuff I didn’t notice.
I had to add lots of ibuprofen for the throat/gland pain. Then the congestion moved to my ear. It’s mostly better now. But still have plenty of snot to share on some days.
Another doctor with another issue let me try some samples which have had me waking up a lot between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. I switched to taking it in the morning to see how it goes. All this to say, “I feel old.”
so, how has your summer been. what’s new with you?
