Recess homeschool style and an itchy story
Bike riding, swimming in the pool, climbing trees, and now a new one, jumping on the tampoline with the hose attached to it is the new way to get some exercise in. Yes, with this blasted summertime heat, the girls are still wary of going outdoors. Some days are cooler than others, and it is always promising when the local weather man says we are due to get a cold front and then the seven day forcast is in the low eighties maybe even the seventies.
But, things could be worse. In fact, things were this past weekend. Not to bore any of you tens of people who read this blog, but it has been an itchy time. I never had poison ivy. "What?" You said, I am sure. How can someone "THINK" they have poison ivy and not!? I in my overachieving way of doing things, got a fungus amoung us, and badly reacted with it. After two trips to the doctors, countless applications of every fungual creme there is, and over the counter antihistamines, I got the good ones from the doc. A shot, some steroids, and some strong anti-inflammatories, and I am a woman on the mend. So, thanks for listening. Be glad you weren't itching and scratching. and scratching. and scratching.
