I knew when we moved back home that (a) it would mean family really involved in our lives (and in our business) and (b) that there would be problems. And I’ve been right, although the benefits have outweighed (mostly) the intense involvement of our family in our affairs.
One thing I hadn’t really thought about was how much of an issue allergies could be here. And wow – we are really paying for it. We’ve had a warmer than normal winter, which sounds great until you think it though for this area. We have rain. We have ocean. We have NO WHERE for rain water to go – we’re below sea level. In warm wet weather, well the excess doesn’t really dry up very well. So, this area is moist and mildew-y. Yippee. And oh yes, moldy.
I love my family and I know that we’ve done the best thing we could do for our children by moving back to be near the family – but my allergies and the warm damp weather are killing me…sigh.
