And So It Begins...

So, winter time here in Austin brings about the pollinating of the cedar trees.  A pretty innocuous event in and of itself, but for those with allergies, it's quite possibly the worst time of the year.  The poor Husband has cedar allergies something fierce.  And so from January at least through February, he wishes he were dead.  Because even though taking allergy medicine helps, it also gives him a wicked case of medicine head.  Something he hates only a little less than the allergies.  It's a pretty miserable time for him.  And so it appears that poor TG has inherited these allergies from his father.
We went hiking on Sunday at Lake Georgetown and it was a lot of fun and really beautiful.  However, it also happens to be situated directly inside of a cedar forest.  Whoops!  Turns out that may have been the worst idea. It was one of the heaviest pollination days so far in the season and so The Husbands poor nose was a drippy mess.  He also complained that his whole face was burning due to the allergens!  And now this whole week, poor TGs little nose has either been running like a sieve or plugged up entirely.  And the worst of the allergy season hasn't even happened yet!  That's next month.
Wish us luck that we all survive!!
