A day in the life of the Chemically Sensitive

We wake up with a hangover from the previous day's insults which are from the neighborhoods smells. Specifically, it's the laundry smells in the air. It forced us to shut up all our windows despite the beautiful weather. Another perfectly good day blown by the dryer sheet stench.

So it's morning now and the smells are nearly gone. We've had our windows open since a bit before midnight though there was still a lingering funky smell. We need to get that cleansing and wonderful smell of the morning. Ah! I enjoy waking up to that freshness.

My kids are dragging around trying to muster strength to open their eyelids. They've showered, dressed, and are waiting for breakfast. Hey, they are actually up! I better go feed them. They can't seem to get up the gumption to walk into the kitchen. Not enough strength to argue yet either. HA!

It's soft boiled eggs, eggs over easy, and lightly scrambled eggs for breakfast. Gotta alkalize their little systems. Have some kombucha, boys! This girl is heading into the kitchen.
