Same Ol' Same Ol'

There hasn't been much going on for the last couple of weeks. I'm still dealing with some trace symptoms from the two-week-old wasp sting, but it is more annoying than painful. My doctor decided that it would be best for me to keep an Epi Pen Kit in my medicine cabinet on the off chance that the ginormous allergic reaction ever morphs into a deadly reaction. Best to be prepared than to be dead. Home ownership is going well. I need to figure out a good cleaning schedule and then it would be better. I lugged some tree limbs to the front of the house this week and was rewarded with a teeny, tiny splinter--which may even be the tip of a thorn--in my middle finger. What makes this one fun is that it is so small and completely under the skin that there is no way to get it out. I've already tried squeezing it and soaking it in hot water in an attempt to bring it to the surface. There is quite a red bump forming. If anyone has some insight on it, that would be most helpful. I guess it could be worse. I could have shingles like my brother. (There is nothing like several contracts falling through on the house you are trying to sell, two kids under the age of 5, and a new job to stress you out!)

Hubband says to "get a scalpel and cut it out!". I think he's joking....
