You Bugs Can Bite Me

4 Aug

Grace got stung/bit by something on her forehead Saturday night.  By Sunday evening, both eyes were starting to shut.  Let’s just say, after a run to Urgent Care, getting the prescription filled, and then coming home and medicating G, it was almost midnight when we finally got her into bed.  Monday morning her face was so swollen she could barely open her eyes.  Today was her first day back at her summer program.  (Daycare if you want to call it that)  Her poor face is mainly normal.  The Prednisone mixed with Benadryl made her quite cantankerous.  It was almost more than I could take!

Speaking of her summer program.  They went on a field trip today to Grand Slam.  Local arcade.  What they failed to mention to us parents is that the kids weren’t allowed to bring their lunches.  All kids ate hot dogs and had either soda or water.  I was NOT happy.  Had we known they were going to make everyone eat that nasty food, we wouldn’t have had G go.  We have explained to them and filled out paperwork stating that Grace can only have food brought from home or that is all natural.  Really, really, really unhappy.

Things weren’t much better once we got home.  Did you know it’s hard to make spaghetti without spaghetti sauce?  Thankfully I found small jar of spaghetti sauce and a can of tomato sauce in the cupboard.  Seasoned it as I went.  And you know what?  It turned out pretty dang tasty if I do say so myself.  For dessert there are two options.  Some all-natural Ben & Jerry’s ice cream I found or some incredibly yummy banana bread.  Here’s the link for the recipe:  WordPress won’t allow to make a super cool link, the jerks.

Well, that’s about as interesting as it gets around here.  I have otherwise been knitting and reading.  Finished A Game Of Thrones and am now working on A Clash Of  Kings.  Very interesting books so far!

    I can relate to people not understanding when you tell them what G can’t eat. My daughter and I get the same thing, assuming we’re just being fussy. But recently, Allergists have started to diagnose food allergies by how the food affects you. If you’ve passed the skin or blood test and you still have a reaction, you can consider it an allergy. The body reacting is proof enough.

    Great photos!
