Crazy Around Here

Baseball games, musical rehearsals, band pictures, board meetings, sick kids, sick mom, and oh, by the way--one of Jenny's friends has LICE.

aaaaaaaaaaaah!

(that should be echoing, like I'm falling down into a bottomless pit)

We're all getting healthier, Jenny does NOT have lice, I have a doctor's appt for next week, but my friend the nurse says the little funky patch of skin looks like it may be something fungal, so I'm putting Lamisil on it and I think it may be looking better... Yes, you heard me--we don't have lice, but I'm happy I may have fungus...

aaaaaaaaaaaah!

I quite literally have not touched a paint brush in ages, so today I'll just pick one up and start back in again.

I got an email from a mother of one of the kids' classmates, and she signed her note, not with 'see ya' or 'love' or 'xoxo' but with 'grrrrr'. It may be my new sign-off.

M's school has a lice scourge, too. Miss M had an anxiety attack just THINKING about lice, so I bought her tea tree shampoo and told her that it helps deflect the lice.

Gross.

I like the Grrrr. I use it alot too.

xo (Just kidding)

Once I heard a strange patch of skin. My friends thought it was ringworm, but I didn't feel like going to the doctor (of course). A few weeks later, I developed a scratchy red rash on my neck and chest, which began to quickly move down my body. It turned out the funky mark was what they call a herald patch for a rash called pityriasis rosea. When I finally ended up going to the ER, the doctor on call was so excited! Turns out, they don't know what causes this rash (probably a virus) and I had a textbook example. I swear he was two seconds away from cartwheels. So if you start getting itchy and bumpy elsewhere on your body, that's probably your problem.

Good luck!

Once I had head lice when I was in my early 20s and then husband was hanging around with strange people and bringing them home (and apparently letting them use my brush). I had no idea what it was! who every heard! then daughter had a round with them in 2nd grade (and also scabies. Son, not to be outdone in pre K got hoof and mouth disease). So.

Why does Etsy not let one buy without being a member? I can't get in (I should be a member - I actually have stuff in there somewhere)...was trying to buy I am What I Am.....
