Dear Journal - and journal readers - it has been a day and a half since I got stung by that bee, or was it a wasp, I have no idea, I don't know the difference on those kinds of things! Well, it still hurts and is itchy like crazy. Maybe I should go to the store and buy some Benadryl. But I am not sure if it would be contraindicated with all the other medications I take.
John says not to worry. He says when he was a child he stepped on a bee and his foot swelled three times its size and he could not walk on it for four days. He said it ballooned right up. That sounds awful dangerous to me. Like a horrible allergic reaction. He said he can't remember if his parents took him to the doctor or not. Good grief.
Yesterday I got up the nerve and called the person I felt was forcing me to do the volunteer work, because I felt if I let it go any longer it would just make things worse. She was not home, so I left a message on her answering machine to call me. I felt good that I did this. She will probably call back today.
Chelsea is leaving to go back to Florida tomorrow. Boo hoo. I will miss her sunshiney face and her bouncy personality. Of course I can call her at anytime. She has her cellphone attached to her hip as do all eighteen year olds these days! Good thing too, lol.
Valerie is doing exceptionally well. I am going over to my parent's house tomorrow where she is recuperating and picking her up and taking her out to lunch. Friday she got her staples out. She was excited about that. Thanks for all who are continuing to pray for her. Thank the Lord she hasn't gotten any kind of infection this time like the last time she had surgery. I would put a picture of her in here with her new haircut (bald), but I have a feeling she is not going to let me, lol!
Last night was a bummer. I got a ticket for parking in a handicapped space without a placard. You see, I really have a placard. I just forgot to put it up. I have fibromyalgia and park in the handicapped space whenever my fibro is acting up. A couple of people told me that if I go to the magistrate and show them that I really have a handicap placard and handicap card that they may waive the fine. I am going to do that tomorrow and see if I can get out of it. Because I don't have a spare $50 to donate. Who does?
Michael is peacefully looking out the window right now. He wasn't peaceful last night. Big brave 21 pound cat was cowering behind the toilet because it was thundering and lightening. Poor kitty. I wonder why he is so afraid of storms.
I guess I really don't have much to say, I am just starting to ramble here, so I will get off now. Take care all and God bless.
