RANDOM POST-BARE WITH ME. As of late my nose has be runnier (is that a word) than it has ever been. My brother is saying right now, "is that even possible?" Yes it is possible and it is true. I have thought it might be a cold or something but the other day I noticed that when I went outside it got even worse and I started sneezing uncontrollably. When your two year old has to tell you "bless you" 10 times you know it's bad. I looked up and saw that I was standing next to a patch of these gigantic weeds and realized that what I have thought was a cold is just terrible allergies. Then the other day when I went out of town and I was in smog city-my nose- didn't sniffle a bit but as soon as I started getting closer and closer to home my nose started to run, my throat started to itch and I started sneezing. It is these dang weeds I tell ya. Do you know how many people I have heard this summer talk about their allergies acting up, or having to get allergy shots? Tons. People it is because we live in a town that has vacant lot after vacant lot of this:
This is not grass or shrubs-these are weeds-tall enough to reach my husbands shoulders in places. This is directly across the street from my house. The neighbors children used to walk to school across this field. They would get lost now.
Another view
Down the street.
Hello has no one that works for the city ever heard of weed spray? Here we are paying our hard earned money to control our allergies when really I am thinking a huge portion of it could be eliminated if our city would take care of it's weed problem. If we are not trying to achieve a world record for tallest weed then lets do something about these awful things. Not to mention they look terrible. Maybe next year we should have Melon Days and Allergy Days- all you can eat watermelon with a complimentary tissue pack and box of Claratin. Everyone complained about our roads and they are finally getting a face lift. So I am just thinkin maybe this should be our next campaign because I am sick and tired of sneezing.

Pin It!

  2. I know what you mean! My husband and two of my children have terrible allergies, and we have said fields on both sides of our house! We were out of town for a couple of days, and one of the fields FINALLY got a face lift! Yea!! Although, that seems to make the allergies worse for a few days after cutting. What ever happened to the city ordinance of fining people who don't clean up their property?? Don't weeds count? We are tired of using our money to buy weed spray so that the weeds don't come too close and overtake our yard as well! Maybe we'll start sending a bill to the city....
