A Year And A Half At The House Of Oddities

I have to say that there are a lot of interesting things about making big changes in your life and I've noticed at least two weird things since I moved into this new house.

The first thing that I've noticed since moving in is that I constantly wake up with a dry throat but am constantly phlegmy. The dry throat, I attributed to having a ceiling fan but... I haven't had the fan on during days that I had a raw throat. My main guess though is that it is an allergic reaction to two humongous olive trees in my back yard. So, yes... the trees are going to have to go at some point because they are messy and messing up my respiration.

The second house oddity is that almost every 6 months when the weather changes, I get a kiss on the mouth from the cold sore/fever blister fairy. Reasons for getting them stem from diet, stress, sun exposure, lack of sleep or (as previously mentioned) weather change. Yet, I've gone 3 sets of 6 months without having that problem. No major changes in diet, sleep, weather or sun exposure has occurred and we all know that there is increased stress when getting a house. So, I'm at a loss. My luck is that the olive trees are causing this too.

Of course, you know that I'm knocking on wood before I post this but this is something that I've been mulling over in my head for awhile. That and if I should do a list of Top 10 women that I wouldn't kick out of my bed during their prime (meaning that they are dead or old.) Anyhow, I'm off to sleep and hope everyone is doing ok.
