Hot Bar


Seven hours of report writing later and Tuesday is over. Whew! That was not a fun day at work. But, the good news is that I’m all caught up with report writing for the first time since I started my job in January! Good thing I’ve got three new referrals coming next week:)

Dinner was a special treat at Whole Foods. I met new friend and fellow blogger Katie at the hot bar! I got my usual bowl, with a base of greens and all the best salads, veggies, and casseroles on top. The cold front hasn’t quite made it’s way to Durham, so we were able to sit outside and talk, eat, and relax for a good hour. It was nice to just sit and chat about life.


Thanks for your advice on the allergy meds. I tried it one more time today and confirmed that I just can’t tolerate it. I feel so frustrated because I went through all this seasonal allergy stuff two springs ago and concluded (along with the testing) that I don’t have seasonal allergies! Maybe I just have a cold? I’m feeling off and can’t distinguish between side effects of the meds, an allergy/cold, and my usual health problems. Oh well.

I’m really loving the beginning of my new book and can’t wait to get in bed and read more. After some jelly beans of course! Have a happy night.

    Don’t sweat too much about the allergy testing. I have had it done twice, about three years apart, and was told very different things after each. The second doctor I went to said I had no allergies whatsoever. My sneezing says otherwise. :/ I take Claritin, which is 10mg of Laratadine as needed. I always avoid anything with a D after it too. My sister always says there is a reason they call it “practicing” medicine, she just prefers they don’t “practice” on her! 😉

      I like that saying! It seems like a lot of the Doctors I’m visiting need a bit more practice:)

    The cold/allergy combo is killer when it happens. Hoping you find out exactly what it is!

      Thanks! I feel better already, although I’m still freezing!
