The Evil that hides in the flower beds!!! POISON IVY
Its been over a week since I have posted. Life just keeps me busy right now. Work is going strong, trying to get ready for our Graduation next Monday, schools out on Thursday. This is my first time in many years that I will not have the summer off. But I will take some vacation time here and there.
Last friday I took off at noon and went over to Moms and cleaned out her Iris beds. Well, guess what I got for a reward? A nice case of Poison Ivy. I wore gloves, just didn't wear a long sleeve shirt. I am so miserable with it. Mainly on my arms and a few other spots here and there. I took off Monday and went to the doc for a cortisone shot as that is the only thing that will help me get over it. When I was a little "tomboy" ,, I lived in the doctor's office in the summer getting shots for the dreaded Poison. So I am still highly allergic to it.
I hope every one had a great Mother's Day. I know I did. It was espiecally wonderful because I got to spend it with my wonderful Mother and Children. There was a time that I wasn't too sure I would get to be with my Mom this year but prayers were answered.
Mom is doing really good now. She is getting around really good too. Her back doctor told her last week that her fracture was healing. Imagine that, and this was the doctor who was saying she would need to have more surgery to remove all the hardware? She is using her cane now and not using the walker all the time. She goes out and sits in the yard with me while I work on her flower beds. She went to several garden centers last saturday and she has been to Michaels.
Hope every one is having a great week so far!!!
