Lessons I Learned the Hard/Itchy Way.

Next time I decide to garden in shorts in the North in June, I will look at this photo:


I will remember how hard it is to sleep, eat, and think when you can not escape the itch of 19 bug bites on your arms, 50 bug bites on your left leg and 71 bug bites on your right leg. And instead of going outside to garden in shorts in the North in June, I will just stay inside and watch Star Trek until September rolls around..

  1. That is some impressive work. I would show you the five infected chigger bites on my thigh, but ... no, I wouldn't. I would never show you those. But they're there. You have my sympathies.

  2. Holy cow! Is it black flies? You poor, poor girl. I would suggest the Benadryl cream we recently bought, but that might seem insulting giving your plight.

  3. I spent a month at a camp in northern Minnesota (about as Canada as you can get while still in the states) and I'm pretty sure by the end up it there mosquito bites on top of my swollen mosquito bites on my legs. You poor, poor thing.
