Our Christmas Turmoil
Well, Christmas went fairly well. Chloe again had problems with her allergies while at my parents house. I don't know whether we'll ever be able to go to their house. Between her and I, we are allergic to every animal they have. I am allergic to both cats and dogs and who knows what else. I survive at Josh's mom's house, because I am only there for brief periods of time and I have prescription allergy meds that cost us a lot of money, that I have to take a ton of when I'm at my mom's. I give Chloe lots of her over the counter stuff, but it barely touches it. She's always so miserable down there with all there adorable long-haired cats that she can't resist. Of course, my extremely rude sister got on my case about having a cat when my daughter's allergic to them. Never mind that she never has this problem at home, except on the very rare occasion that Jewel sheds and Chloe packs her around. If she leaves her alone, she's fine. And Jewel's so big, she's hard to carry, so Chloe never does. Why does she think we were leaving mom's house to go to our own house with our own cat? Because our cat doesn't cause her problems. Maybe Jill should get rid of her dogs, so I don't have to pay so much money to go see her! Anyway, we headed back yesterday, partly because I was sick of everyone's judgmental jerkiness (sometimes I wish I was an orphan), but mostly because of Chloe's allergies.
