Well, I'm officially on vacation and lovin' it. I haven't technically went on a vacation since 2000 or 2001. So, I am enjoying every minute of it. Elijah, Mom, Ronnie and myself are spending six days at a cabin at Lake Norfork. It has been quite relaxing--lots of fishing and lots of lounging on the pontoon. Elijah convinced me to get in the pool yesterday and it was frigid! Of course, it didn't phase him.
Earlier this afternoon we were fishing at the boat dock when I suddenly felt a horrible burning on my upper right arm. I looked and had what appeared to be two punture marks. Within ten seconds my arm started to swell and turn red. It was like I had been set on fire. Not long after that I felt something crawling up my back. I shook my shirt out and found the source. A BIG black fuzzy scary spider. It's now about two and half hours later and my arm is still red and still throbbing. I took a Benedral and am hoping it will get better soon.
While I am thoroughly enjoying the break and spending time with the family, I definitely am NOT a country girl!
I am a happily single mother of one amazing boy, Elijah. We have a white cat, Jola and a black lab, Eko. I have my BA in Social Work. For the past four years I have worked with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. I have a wonderfully close relationship with my family. My friends mean the world to me. I attend an awesome church. I have the sweetest boyfriend. Life is good.
