Happy birthday to me (ugh)

Something bad doesn't happen every year on my birthday, but often enough to nearly be a pattern. In this case, I now have a lovely outbreak of poison ivy running from behind one ear, wrapping along my jaw, and descending down the side of my neck. I'd be very tempted to take Monday off, except I think my staff would have a collective breakdown, as I was gone last week and out on and off the previous week (thanks to a severe summer cold).

(And I'd only just about recovered from that yellow jacket bite, too!)

Though the lake we stayed at was lovely, as it is every year. And the dog that probably contaminated me with the poison ivy is an absolute sweetheart--if a bit prone to wandering off the path.

Welp, I'll just carry on dosing myself with every over-the-counter remedy CVS has available, and hope it doesn't start progressing toward my eyes, because I really don't want to have to go to the doctor about this.

I like summer, I really do--but this stuff doesn't happen when the leaves have fallen off everything. Just sayin'.
