Sinus Spins

I've really been enjoying the weather. My sinuses, however, long for the winter that really never was. This year winter was mild, but it was just cold enough to keep my allergies at bay.

To make my allergies extra fun this year, I've developed vertigo. I'm stumbling around like a drunk. The world, the horizon, keeps tilting to the right and I keep stumbling left - looking like I just left the bar. I've got the spins but, unfortunately, didn't drink the good time to go with it.

I want to just sit quietly and be alone until the world stops titlting but I've got stuff to do.  Our neighborhood birds must have gotten that stomach bug that was going around, so I have to wash my car.  Since some time had passed since I last took Jack to the car wash, I thought I'd give it another go.

After this experience, poor Jack was traumatized and my head was pounding. I thought maybe we needed a break from each other. 

I was thankful that my monthly Bunco group was meeting that night. Surely no one would think anything out of the ordinary if I was stumbling around as if in a drunken stupor. 

But alas, it wasn't meant to be - my poor head wouldn't stop screaming at me and world was tilting like it was on the verge of some cosmic disaster so I simply took myself to bed. No need to humiliate myself -  if the world was spinning, I needed to be home, warm and cozy in my bed. 

I can surely humiliate myself next month....pending the world is still in its proper place of course.

Spin on spring! Spin on!
