Today, the pollen count is 7.3. This is not good for me. I went outside anyway because I needed to go shopping for clothes. There is no way to know for certain how high the pollen count will be tomorrow (or in the next few days). So, I took a chance on the 7.3 day.
I hate shopping for clothes. It takes so much energy to try things on before buying them, and it is difficult for me to find things that fit no matter where I shop.
I prefer thrift stores to chain retail stores because you can get a lot from a thrift store for very little money. I also love that the clothing has already been worn in a little, and no longer has the … fabric stiffener?…. that most clothing in chain retail stores has.
Guess what? Yep, I’m allergic to that, too. It gives me hives.
Overall, the day was good. I got a dress and a shirt, and two hardcover books, for $8.00. My husband and I found a restaurant we had been wanting to try that now has gluten free bread. There was one thing on the menu I could safely eat (with only slight modifications).
I’m certain that I will pay tomorrow for the allergens I exposed myself to today.
