Watercolors, Insect Bites and Video Games

Grace has been completely fascinated with watercolor painting lately and is learning many techniques in her art classes. The above picture is something we tore out of a magazine. The bottom picture is her interpretation of the cat.

A couple of days ago I think I was bitten by some sort of insect right under my eye. Mostly just a little stinging involved. But this morning when I woke up everything changed. Under my eye was so swollen that I looked like a basset hound. Had to go to the doctor first thing and get an injection of dexamethasone. Also taking lodrane and ibuprofen. My lymph nodes in my neck were also sore. This afternoon the swelling is going down but feeling alot of pins and needles type feeling under my eye.

Wednesday night we were over at my sister's house for my nephew's birthday. All the kids decided to play Rock Band. Fun had by all.

That's crazy about your bug bite. I hope it goes away soon.

BTW, I posted this, then went out of town and got scatterbrained. I gave you an award on this post.
