It is so good to have friends and family members in the medical field.

Poison ivy (or poison something) was the diagnose I got from our doctor friend.  I still have no idea how I got it.  I self medicated this morning and it only flared up and itched more (it could have been the progress of the allergic reaction not necessarily what I put on it).  The one Benedryl I took this morning knocked me out for a few hours this afternoon.  Guess what I'll be taking soon?  A few more Benedryl.  I'm looking forward to a good night sleep.  After visiting with our friend I'm now armed with different, and hopefully better, medication.  Did I already mention how nice it is to know doctors? So nice.

Sample Meds

We also found some relief at ABC Warehouse.  Our refrigerator is dying.  The freezer's fine but the fridge just isn't cold enough.  We've had to throw out a few gallons of milk.  We bought a plain old fridge this morning as a place filler.  We would like to get a different, bigger refrigerator but have to get a wall moved in order for it to fit.  I don't think that will be too bad.  But in the meantime we needed something.  Once all the construction is done and the new fridge purchased the one we bought today will go in the basement as an extra.  I have really missed having a second fridge.  That will mean I won't have to make a milk run the second half of the week.  Yay!

P.S. The wall in the background is the new color of our room.  It's not exactly the same in person but I love it.  I can't wait to finish it.

That is a beautiful wall. I'm sorry about your poison ivy!
