Update on Poison...

...Okay, on second thought, I decided not to post the picture. Okay, so the poison, it's still here, I don't think it's spreading any more. I started on prednisone on Friday evening and by Saturday AM I could tell the yuckiness was gone but damn does it itch!?! I worked Saturday evening so it didn't bother me at all because I was so busy running around but then when I got home the itch started again. I've washed the sheets and pillowcases every day since Thursday along with every single pair of pajama pants I own. I've dug down to the bottom of every drawer to find pants and shirts that I don't mind ruining but so far Friday was the worst day and now it's better.

On the same lines of poison, SIL's boyfriend broke up with her and it was kind of out of the blue. We were having dinner for her birthday on Super Bowl Sunday (???) and she called around noon to see if she could stop by because she didn't want to be by herself but didn't want to deal with her parents yet. Now let me tell you, I'm not the best with dealing with break-ups and I think after being married, I'm even worst at it because I have no idea what to say or how she's feeling so I was a little worried. When she called and told hubs they broke up, he straight up said, "You know I don't know what to say to make you feel better?" I thought to myself, great...this is going to be fun but he surprised me and actually was really good. I let the two of them hang out and run errands, some good brother/sister bonding and just popped in from time to time. I think he took her mind of things and we didn't really talk about it so good job Mattie, I'm proud of you. I think Matt did better dealing with that than most situations when I'm upset! I love him except when he gives me poison...JK! I love him all the time, I just shoot laser beams through my eyes at him when he gives me poison! So there's the update on poison, hopefully, I won't have to post about this again for a long time!

I would definitely be shooting a glare or two his way for the poison!

That stinks! Hopefully you'll start feeling better soon. I'm actually not allergic to it. I could play in it and not get any kind of rash. My dad though, crazy allergic to it.

Yeah, I also have NO idea what to say when people break up. I also give horrible advice on how to handle crushes or dating problems, too! I realized that it's been so long since I've had to deal with it that I'm very rusty -- but wouldn't have it any other way!

That truly sucks about your poison. He gets the naughty chair for giving it to you!
