When your mom calls you out...

You know you better write a blog when...

Your mom calls you out on not blogging.

Ok...Ok...its been a long time and its not exactly that I don't WANT to blog...or even that I had nothing to say, but these past few weeks have been crazy busy and hectic...but that really is no excuse...its just that at the end of the day I didn't take the time to blog. 

Well, all thats changing.  I've got a whole list of blogs that I want to write...I'll start with recent happenings....

Like the acquisition of a scooter for Bella....she's been riding this thing for two days straight...literally...nearly 48 hours on this scooter.  You should see her calf muscles.  :)

Speaking of calfs...calves...whatever.  On Monday my calf appeared with two big red bites.  I figured they were just mosquito bites until the next morning there was a large red circle around them and they were painful to touch.

I'm guessing a spider got me.

True to form...I chose to not visit a doctor until the gangrene sets in.  We're still waiting for that to happen.  Actually...these photos were taken today (5 days after I got bit by that buggie) and the swelling has receded and the big red splotches are disappearing.  I think I'm in the clear.

Similarly related was John's wasp sting in the eye.  Poor guy.  I told him to not place any bets or buy any lottery tickets.  This little wasp flew into his eye and he squinted out of reflex...the wasp got stuck IN the squint and stung him.  (try not to laugh...really....try really hard not to laugh....I didn't make it and got "the look.")  Here is the aftermath of his wasp sting.  PS...the scratches are from him trying to get the wasp out of his squint AFTER he got stung.  Its like adding insult to the injury isn't it?

And last, but not least...we went to dinner the other night with our neighbors and I ate the BEST food ever.  Pork fillets with mozarella and tomato on top and a big plate of steamed veggies...had to share...doesn't it look incredibly YUMMY?
