A Day Without a Blog is Like a Day Without Sunshine

My seventh grade math teacher had a banner at the front of his classroom that read, "A Day Without Math is Like a Day Without Sunshine," and he repeated that mantra during each class.

Today was almost one of those days without a blog, but I am whipping one out at the last minute (even though I have four hours until midnight).  However, I probably have much less than that before I fall asleep since I am currently hyped up on Benadryl, Codeine and vinegar body wash.  Ladies and Gentlemen, I've got a gnarly case of the hives.  And considering they are ALL up and down my arms, my sides, my stomach, my EARS, and the backside of my legs, I've taken pictures documenting their attack.  But, I'm not going to show any of those here just in case some of you happen to be eating while reading.  Just trust me when I say they are NASTY.

David came home from work early to nurse me back to health and Uncle Ryan is taking awesome care of Olivia.  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

I don't know how {or why} I got the hives, but I've got a sneaking suspicion it has something to do with this:


And the fact that after I asked him how it felt to hold that snake he said, "Yeah, that was cool.  I'm going to get one of those one day."  INSTA-HIVES, folks.  I quickly replied, "Over my dead body!"  Come to think of it, maybe that's what he was going for...

Dear Lord, we need something cute to get that aftertaste out of our mouths.

I think that will do!

Hope you all are having a hive-free day. 
 Happy Monday from the Central Coast!

I am so, so sorry you are experiencing one of the most painful things to happen to your body. Been there, done that and it is not pleasant. Hope the shot helps. Glad you have some extra help too!.. And as grandmother Miller would say, "and this too shall pass"! (Probably not as quickly as you would like tho). I'll keep praying for a speedy recovery.
