something to sneeze at

Perhaps the worst thing about the move so far is the effect that packing is having on my dust allergies. This weekend we’ve cleared out most of the bookcases and video/DVD racks, and have made a good start on the hall closet, and apparently we’re putting a lot of dust into the air in the process. My eyes have been itchy and watering, my nose has been running, and I’ve been sneezing off and on the past two days. If I weren’t feeling like we’re starting to make some noticeable progress, I’d be miserable.

When we got out of the condo today to deliver a carload of books to the local library (more about that later), I felt great; now that we’re back, though, I’m stuffy, sniffly, sneezy and headachy again.
