State Bug of New Jersey and Wisconsin and…

..of course I am talking bout the mosquito.

Jim always seems to get chewed up.They seem to get him no matter what, and even though his best of intentions to wear long pants and long sleeves, he ends up scratching.

I have accepted the fact that mosquitos are here no matter what.I try to be wise about it and use homeopathic ways to prevent the bites and/or later treat them. I mea after 3+ cancers, how much poison do I need to throw on my body?

Unfortunately, the fact that I am writing this post means that, all of a sudden, the bugs have caught up to me and I am witch hazel-ing my bites to pieces.I have clear store versions of Caladryl and I am not beyond taking a Benadryl if I am really itchy.

Another reason why I can’t wait for October!

Sound of one eye clapping

It’s over.

It’s benign.

Now I am into hour 8 of 72 hours with a patch over my right eye.It has been an interesting time so far. It’s starting to get itching under the patch.I have learned that auto-correct is not all it’s cracked up to be.The words aren’t “dirty”, but they aren’t what I have wanted to write either.

The good part is Jim is, as I know, a great guy. He went and got up Italian wedding soup for dinner and it has hit the spot.I am listening to my body and napping when the spirit moves me or my good eye tires out.I managed to slowly get the girls out, but they are getting the idea that Mom is not up to stuff.

We’ll see how the rest of the weekend fares.

Stay tuned.
