Poison Ivy Sucks

Its been a full week. I read it would go away in about a week. Instead, my rash is spreading to cover both arms.

I think I’ve found the culprit, considering I have studiously avoided any contact with plants remotely resembling poison ivy…

The dogs.

I just watched Dax sit in a patch of it.

This is going to be a very long, itchy, summer…


I have been subjugated.  I also drank two cups of coffee and am in desperate need of a restroom. The pets don’t seem to care…


Yes, I have dog cartoon PJ’s  on. I assure you, these are the highest form of fashion.

Ava laying in the hay I put out. I rarely see her lay down. She must feel safer with Joy standing guard.



I went to a relatives wedding yesterday. Anytime I sneak out into the public realm I end up wondering why I bothered. I’m socially awkward. I make people uncomfortable around me.

The only way I could offset my awkward demeanor previously was copious amounts of alcohol. Since I gave up drinking, the social aspects of life have become extremely difficult.

I now understand why some of my friends carry portable wine containers….

  1. Mia, if the poison ivy rash doesn’t improve, go to the doctor and get pills or a shot. I’m sure you’re right about the dogs bringing it to you. Regarding the wedding, still nice that you were there. Seating didn’t allow for much social interaction.
