I would say this is where the week began to plunge.
I caught a healthy dose of Poison Ivy while working in the yard Monday. I was treating myself with cream and dosed up on some benedryl before bed. Unfortunately this knocked me out enough that I never heard Ava Flava come down and tuck her self into my bed.
No biggy this happens all the time.
Until I walk into the bathroom and see the vomit all over the floor. This girl cleaned herself up and got into my bed but didn't know what to do with the bathroom and was apologizing.
OMG! I felt horrible. I looked into her eyes and they were just dark.
 In the meantime I am trudging along with my homemade remedies and my arm is now swollen to twice the size of the other. This picture doesn't do it justice. Those spots are swollen, hot and raw. I am washing with witch hazel, cleaning with bleach and washing loads of laundry in hot water.
We are a germ factory!
 This child all the while is healthy and trying to be tough because tomorrow she needs to have 2 teeth pulled. I am terrified and trying to hold a strong front because she is terrified. At 9pm wednesday she walks into my room and says look how loose this tooth is and after a few tears and some wiggles it is out.
Did I mention there is never a dull moment in my house. It may not be clean but it is full of action that's for sure.
At this point we are scratching, not eating and stressing but hanging in.
