Allergies


Today my allergies are driving me crazy! I don't recall ever having them this bad. Runny nose, red and puffy eyes and sneezing constantly. I guess this means spring is here and I'll take all my allergy symptoms rather then another snow storm although at this rate, I think I will buy stock in Kleenex the way I'm going through boxes.

Sweet Pea thinks it's funny to empty an entire box of Kleenex by pulling them all out and scattering them about the room. Ahhh, it would be more funny if I didn't have a medium size bump in my tummy that makes me hold my breath and groan every time I bend over to pick them up......At least allergies aren't contagious.

I've never been good at giving others nick names and I've never had one. When people shorten Erica it turns to Eric which is confusing and I won't count the nicknames given to me as a child from siblings that are less then uplifting. I wish I had a name that could be shortened...anyways, I thought our daughter wouldn't have a nickname either. But I've found one and I love calling her it..Sweet Pea.

I hereby give her that official nickname

i never had much of a nickname either. i think that it is sad to go through life without a nickname.

I have had FAR too many nicknames for anyone's health and sanity. And my mother chose my name SOLELY based on the fact that it would have a lot of nicknames. In my opinion it does NO GOOD to have a nickname if every third person that you meet has the same nickname... but that's just me. But I like the nickname Sweet Pea! :)

digapigymy- sorry no nickname
Jeni-for this next baby we are thinking of every possible nickname for each name. I'm coming to the point, that no matter what you choose, kids can butcher it
Tim- lol
