Ten on Ten

Well, I’m two days late with this post ……. and behind on a few other posts!  I feel like since the last week in May my life has been in a whirlwind between dance recital, end of the year activities, getting ready for Lilly’s birthday and if that’s not enough I got poison ivy!!!  Which I have never had before and nor do I EVER want it it again!!  I’ve been dealing with this poison Ivy since June 2nd – because on June 1st I did yard work to get ready for Lilly’s birthday party.   In the six years we’ve lived in our house no one has ever got poison ivy!  Well, I’ve learned I’m highly allergic to it and Monday morning I woke up and I told Chris something was wrong and of course he thought I was over reacting until he saw my arms!  Then he said , Aim they might be putting you in the hospital – YIKES!  Are you Serious?  I don’t have time of this crap!!!  OMG – my arms look awful and I’m so thankful right now the weather in Ohio has been on a chilly side that I can still sport a long sleeve top and right now it might be the end of summer you see me in a short sleeve top!   So I’ve learned I’m HIGHLY allergic to poison ivy and my first round of prednisone that will work on normal people didn’t help me one bit and wasn’t enough that my arms swelled up!  Monday, I was back at the doctors and had to get a shot of cortisone and now I’m on a high dose of steroids – Well so much for the 8'lbs I just lost!  It’s so depressing …. uggh!  At the rate my arm looks like now, I might not be running in my race next weekend because seriously, no one will want me to wear a short sleeve shirt! 


Well onto my recap of what I’ve been up and hopefully I will start feeling better so I can finish putting all my  posts to together!

While at the library she talked me into borrowing a movie – The Smurfs? 

Who could say no?  I mean the cute loveable blue Smurf! 

Now, I just need to remember to return it ;)
