Boy, talk about a dilemma. Sometimes it seems this house is just one dilemma after another!
Of course, there's the junk with the SIL and his work philosophy that I think needs to be totally revamped if ever he wants to qualify as really being a "Professional, Self-employed Businessman." Lots of change needs to take place in that area.
Then there's the kids and their problems from time to time -one of them being the allergy issues that little Kurtis seems to have. He has a prescription for Cingulair (I think that's how you spell it) plus every night, he gets a dose of melatonin to help him go to sleep and just in case that doesn't kick in completely, he also gets a dose of benadryl to help with the allergy issues and also adds to the melatonin's effects to get him to go to sleep -and stay asleep -better, longer, etc.
Mandy had talked to some of her friends about some of the issues with Kurtis and several people had suggested maybe we should get a dehumidifier that might help with his allergy issues.
Now I can see where this might be something to consider under some circumstances but I'm not so sure it would be the best thing to have in this house nor would it be the best thing for some other people here either.
You see, we have hot water heat -not steam heat -but those big old radiators and in the winter months especially, the air here is almost as dry as a bone or the Arizona desert.
That, plus the fact that my nasal passages are already over-dry -except when I get a head cold from Hell like I was dealing with for about the past 3 weeks -and I'm wondering if we got a dehumidifier in here, I'd have to figure out a way to get a window open in my bedroom -no easy task to do at this time of year since the SIL has that plastic film stuff tightly in place around the windows in my bedroom. That plus there isn't all that much heat in that room to begin with either so trying to sleep with a bit of "fresh air" with a tad of moisture in it, might just end up freezing my keester, don't 'cha think?
Always something, is it?
