Oh no. So itchy.

Monday morning. It is cold in our house, which is a welcome change. The sun in shining, and the leaves on the tops of the trees are glittering in a gentle wind. I wish I were at the lake. It looks like it is going to be a nice day today. We have no plans to speak of at this point in time, but I want to take a drive down the road to the place where Sasha dumped me to survey the spot. I have broken out in a horrible, itchy rash, and it is my strong belief that when I fell off, I landed in poison ivy. I have patches in several places, but my left elbow is bad, plus a spot on my left wrist...and here's the clincher. I seem to have it on my right wrist as well. That's the one in the cast. I am going crazy here, and I am extremely unhappy about this new development. I looked online and apparently poison ivy can take up to ten days to show up in rash form. Wow. So what was already a bad situation is now much worse. I wish I were going to the doctor today, but I have to wait until tomorrow morning. I always wondered how itchy poison ivy is, because I get really bad mosquito bites. This is definitely worse. Maybe it is because instead of one isolated spot, it comes in patches. I don't know.

Anyway, that's all I've got for today. Too sore to type any longer. This will be a busy week, so not sure how much I will be posting in here, but I will do my best. I guess I'm off for now.
