Happily, my OTC allergy medicine arrived. My sinus may actually slow down their ridiculous levels of mucous production. Man, if I could find something to make with that I could retire.

So to be brutally honest, the misanthrope in me is doing just fine. I’ve got what I need and a lot of what I want-my family, my pets, health, and a chance to breathe.
