In fact, I am still in the *breaking out* stage of poison ivy, surely this has got to wind down before too long? I'm running out of blank spots and my skin looks like flesh colored bubble-wrap.
Ugh, and this crap has now spread to both eyes. The lids are all swoll up like I've been crying for days, and I'm afraid to venture out into public as I might scare small children.
Plus I can't stop itching. I want to take a shard of glass and dig into my skin like I'm digging for buried treasure (relief). I have to say though, the kids were over yesterday and we looked around for the culprit. Sure enough, we found poison ivy growing under and around and beside various areas of established landscaping, especially the arborvitaes.
Now I'm giving serious thought to calling the doc$tor for a steroid shot or some such (insert sound of intense annoyance). Too bad this isn't 1970 when a single visit to the doctor, or physician's assistant, didn't cost nearly $130. Not kidding.
BUT, as a very important aside, something is amiss with my laptop! It looks like it's not storing cookies, as I can't access half of the blogs I visit, or my own blog unless it's a cached version. Luckily, I can access my *dashboard*, and I'm hoping this post will go thru alright when I hit *publish*.
Therefore, until I figure out what's wrong, I can't respond to comments. Because when I go to the *cached* page, they aren't THERE. The son says it might (?) be a virus.
Virus my butt. I'm thinking this *&^%$#@! poison ivy has infected my stupid laptop, is what is wrong (not really)(that'd be almost kinda cool).
By the way, I'm now 2/3s through No Safety In Numbers by Dayna Lorentz. While the premise is great, it's just not doing it for me. At least thus far. We'll have to see how the story goes closer to the ending.
Okee, I'm done here. I <3 You!
Ps - Not sure if I've mentioned this before, but ALL book lovers should watch
the British comedy tv series called Black Books! I think you can still watch it for free on Hulu. It is the best thing ever, and if you end up not liking it then I will be forced to raid your personal library and steal cookies from your pantry (at first I typed *panty* ... I am so NOT stealing cookies from your *panty* heh heh).
