The Itchy & Scratchy Show

And I ain't talkin' 'bout the Simpsons, either! I'm talking about hives. On my body. Stress? Too much cinnamon in my homemade chai? Too much chai in general? Arrgh! The nape of my neck started itching last night after dinner. I had Steven look in my hair for nits because I itched so bad. He said "There's a little rash there" and then I also started itching on my shoulder. I woke up at 5:50 this morning scratching my side and shoulder again. By 7:00 the itching had moved to my lower stomach. By 8:00 I had to have Benedryl because I couldn't stand it any longer! In hindsight, I guess I should have taken it last night because now I'm sitting on the couch with big, bad, drowsy medicine head...and I really need to go to the store for bread and milk (no, I didn't go yesterday). Someone somewhere needs to invent non-drowsy Benedryl. It's not good for moms who have three children!

Sounds like you've got a case of the mange. Nothing to be ashamed of. Henry's doctor can fix you right up!

Lori: :P pfffft!

Rose: No, actually I think it was glucosamine chondroitin. I'm finally getting over it (Monday) but it was a pretty miserable few days.

Pia: Thanks for the well wishes!
