I don't suppose you could cut that hole out...

Sorry, been burnt before and I know it hurts! Keep it covered!

Of course, first thing I did was research Lyme Disease. I think I'm OK, the tick wasn't engorged.
Liquid bandage is made for ticks... if you put it on them they back out on their own because they can't breathe...no digging! Vaseline works, too!

I just got off the phone and was told to drop down to the lower level and see if that helps ... maybe the dosage is too much. So that's what I will do beginning tomorrow.

Meanwhile .. I am smoke free and finding it a bit of a relief .. so yayyy on that !!
Proud of you! You can do it! We are rooting for your success!

Thanks for all the great support !

I do need it for sure.... hubby is not quitting so I am doing this alone with a smoker around !!

The good part though is that a few years back we stopped smoking in the house or car .. so if we wanted a smoke we went outside. So at least that was already in place.

Actually I am doing better than he is ... I think he is waiting for me to break down or go all maniac or something like that.

Anyway .. I do appreciate the words of support .. it's nice to have all of this help

Why do parents threaten their young children with strangers??? At the laundromat today, a cute toddler was cranky, obviously tired and ready for a nap. His mother told him to behave or that mean lady, pointing at me, would yell at him and maybe spank him.

GRRRR!!!!

So, did he behave or did you have to yell at him and spank him. Clever improvisation to add the growl at the end.

With me it was that I was to go to a party at an apartment on Main Street, to watch the Halloween parade on Saturday night. There would be little-to-no parking, and we almost always walk. BUT that was before I broke my hip. But I was game, knowing that there were steps and rails the entire way (it is a very steep downhill climb; look up Galena on the internet and picture me walking down that hill). I've walked down a couple of times since the break, but never this particular set of steps. Well, I got to one point and there were two cars parked over the sidewalk. So, instead of the sidewalk, steps, and rail, I had to walk down the middle of the street (otherwise I'd have had to literally jump off and on the sidewalk). I'll admit I'm paranoid about stepping down hill (how I broke the hip to begin with). Then, when I neared the apartment our friends live in, I had another dozen steps. So many people crowded them to sit and watch the parade, that I couldn't use THAT rail. I don't need it for support, more for balance. Anyway, it made it so that I had to walk step-together-step rather than right-left-right (anyone whose had a walking problem knows what I'm saying). I actually asked people to move away from the rail so I could walk and they very rudely ignored me. I finally said, hey you (one woman who wouldn't move over, afraid that I'd steal her primo spot for the parade), "If I fall, I am going to aim for you!" I was so pissed. Had a lovely evening overall, but several very insensitive people made me absolutely exhausted by the time I arrived at the party.

That Grr was for his idiot mother. I really don't like to be made out as mean in a child's eyes.
