Well, the doc put me on Zyrtec and a Z-pack steriod for my insect bite reaction. The blister has gone away, and the swelling has gone down. My ear still itches quite a bit at different parts of the day and when it gets hot (like when I'm taking food out of the oven or pass the gas heater on the wall). I still have about half the pack to go. I hope I'm all healed by the end of the week.

We had a great Easter at my sister's. The kids had a lot of fun, and we had a great dinner.
We got home after 8 and got the girls to bed. I sat down to the computer to check my email and the top of my ear started burning. My DH looked at it but didn't see a bite or anything.
Today it got worse, and by lunch I had a blister on the top of my ear. I decided to go to the doctor. The first thing he said is that it was an allergic reaction to an insect or spider bite. So, I'm on a steroid (that 6 the first day down to 1 the 6th day) and Zyrtec for 5 days. The blister is a reaction to a very small bite.
Happy, happy, Joy, joy!

Well, planter gardening didn't do well for me last year. So, I've decided to give it another try planting in the ground. I'm having to dig by shovel instead of tiller; however, because our yard is like a landfill.
I've dug in several different places to plant (or transplant) flowers. I've come across glass bottles, metal rods, broken china, bricks, etc. So, two and a half hours later and I've only got a 4'x4' plot... and the kids helped.
I hope that this year is a different story than last and that our efforts pay off.

Well, the weekend was a lot better than last week.
Although my little one had to miss school (and their class egg hunt), her teacher brought her an Easter basket filled with eggs and other treats. It was so nice of her to do that. Not all teachers are so dedicated. Mine wasn't the only one to miss. There were 5 kids who missed in her class on Friday.
Her fever broke in the night Friday/Saturday, so I let her go on the egg hunt (mad dash) on Saturday. She got a little bit of candy and a sticker. Her sister got candy, stickers, and small toys (like marbles, toy soldiers, etc.)
We had my twin sister and her family over for lunch today. We used to do that every Sunday but quit doing it soon after gran moved in with us. I hope we can do it at least twice a month (once at her house, once at ours). We had supper at church tonight.
The kids participated in the "Moses' Life" skit at church. My older one was Miriam. The younger one recited the 10 commandments (in kid speak) with the other pre-K kids. You could hear her above all the others. I'm proud of both of them.
My older one is going to try out for "Beauty and the Beast, Junior" which will be played at the Masquerade Theater downtown at the end of the summer. If she gets a part, it would be her third play. She sings really well, learns her lines quickly, and loves to dance. I hope that she does well and gets a fun part. The audition is May 16. She is already practicing her song choice.
It's Spring Break this week. My older daughter and 2 nephews will be going to the Boys and Girls Club. The little one is too young. I'm sure that there will be a day or two where I pick them up early or they stay with me the whole day. I guess it all depends on what is planned for the week at the club.
