I've discovered (the hard way) that my body does not get along with Poison Oak at alllllll. After spending one summer day tending to the overgrown garden I awoke the next morning with small blisters/boils all over my arms, legs and chest. Aaaaand then they got worse:
Aches all over. Crazy boils the size of McNuggets. It was a scary sight. But after two weeks of antibiotics everything is back to normal. Phew.
While on the subject of scary/awesome. Here's a photo I took of a mean little spider just seconds before he jumped from the playground right on to the camera. I was quite proud of the fact that I didn't scream. I remained calm and just brushed the little guy away trying to keep my cool in front of the kids. :D
