A Bug's Life (And Subsequent Death)

Last night after the kids were tucked in bed, I sat in the backyard with some dear friends to catch up on life. It was a great evening and I loved sitting out there and chatting away.

Until the right side of my tummy started itching and burning.

And I scratched and scratched and it got worse and worse.

And I finally came inside to see what the heck was going on only to find some freaky random bug literally in my pants that had bitten/stung/clawed me in 5 different spots from my tummy to my hip.

And I kind of freaked out because that's what I do and I made Brad come and examine the damage and capture that little freaker on the counter so that if I didn't wake in the morning due to massive bug injuries, Brad could cart that little sucker off to the authorities and hold him accountable.

But I did wake up this morning (phew!) and my tummy and hip feels find except for the five little pock marks decorating my abdomen.

But I still hate that freaking bug.

Looks like future chats will have to be done indoors, ladies.

So glad you made it through the night! I have to say that I love that you called the bug a freaker. When Spencer and I met, that was his favorite word. He was especially fond of using it when rude drivers would cut him off ;)

I don't care where we have our chats, as long as we have them! Thanks for a great evening of catching up. Next time, how 'bout we don't go a whole month before we all get together again?

Oh I hate the bugs this time of year. I'm usually the one who will get five mosquito bites while everyone else gets zero. You'll have to let us know what kind of bug that was if you find out so we can be on the lookout!

You should set goals for your self, both about the short and the future. In the temporary, you need to aim at minimizing modest expenditures you do definitely not need. For a long time, search for a greater career or place your cash in secure ventures. When you do not satisfy your goals, find what you did improper and look for a much better solution.
