It is just amazing, the similarities of the 2 places

I wonder what all influenced those similarities sometimes? Both countries were under British rule, both have many English, Irish, French etc immigrants. Must be all the outside cutural influences?!
Well I'm half Irish, bit of a pavement special really

This may turn into a major vent. Its been a stupid week! Monday night, received a NASTY steam burn on my hand. BAD one. Treated it with cold water, aloe and let it be. Blistered up nicely. I left it alone, although the temptation nearly got me.

Yesterday, horrible migraine (weather related likely) and went home from work. Slept all day, felt better. Went to hug DH when he got home and ripped off the ginormous blister! GROSS! Polysporin but no bandage big enough in the house. LOTS of polysporin. Went to work, found BIG bandage and more polysporin.

Later today, hand aching...some swelling but no redness or heat. Went to doc for meds. He wrapped the crap out of my hand. I could have been a mummy! LOL. Taking antibiotics now, but took off giant bandage and put a big stick on bandaid on it.

Whine! Whimper! My arm hurts! Stupid infection. If this gets worse and messes up my trip I'm going to be über ticked off.

Oh dear, Alix! No advice here, other than keep it wrapped on the plane and buy stock in polysporin!

Yes, it does! I may get some of that for myself. Since it's Friday, of course I'm starting to feel congested and have a sore throat. Yea weekend!

I just added poopy to the dictionary on my laptop...it kept saying it was misspelled.

Hahahaha! You guys always make me feel better! Don't forget the garlic PF. I had garlicky hummus for dinner. Garlic and alcohol will kill anything!

I had guacamole and chips for dinner...it was plenty garlicky...keeps the vampires away!

Yum...I think I will roast some garlic and make a soup out of it. That should help me enjoy the weekend and keep Shrek and the cats away.
