i'll be the first to admit...i'm lucky. here in the land below the mason dixon line, where the mosquitoes come about as big as your fist...i don't get bitten much. and when i do....they go away in a few hours.
p.s. did you know putting listerine on bug bites will take the itch out? it's amazing!
anyways, i normally don't have to deal with itching and scratching and such...so this morning, when i woke up and my legs were a little itchy...i figured it was dry sky. so i slathered on a little orange sapphire lotion and went on my merry way.
imagine my surprise when i folded myself into my normal backwards-indian-style sitting position in my chair (yes, i sit in my desk chair like a crazy person....but regular leg-crossing makes my foot go to sleep!!)...and i see this.yes, i did that in microsoft paint. no, i'm not gonna go back and make it bigger.
that is FIVE bug bites of some sort, on my right ankle. and i've got super skinny ankles yo....so it takes a lot to get that many in one space!! i dunno if we had a bug in our bedroom, or i got bitten yesterday outside and it took awhile, or it happened sunday or what. but i am NOT. HAPPY.
also, the "good" dog who did not go to the pet urgent care twice in 7 days decided he needed some attention last night.
so he threw up. twice.
and i literally almost puked myself cleaning it up, because the hubs had gone to pick up pizza. it was grey. i don't know how something grey comes out of a dog...but ick.at least my bug bites match my shoes.
