a birthday, some hives

yesterday was my hubs birthday. he came home early from school and we went to COSI (what better way to celebrate your adult birthday than to go to a children's museum right?) today is the last day of the Wild Ocean movie and i told augustine we would go see it, and we couldn't attend today so we *had* to go yesterday. it was actually an amazing and beautiful film. anyways i got david tickets to go see journey for his birthday. we love journey!

i woke up and still had hives so i sipped on some children's antihistamines which made me super groggy. like i almost fell asleep at certain points of the day, heck i DID fall asleep for about 3 hours when we came home from COSI and had eaten lunch. i was just so so out of it. at least i was feeling like i needed to rip up my skin though so that was good. eventually my mom bought me some calamine lotion and oh. oh i love that stuff! today i still have hives but they are going down, the worst itching is on my chest and wrists but i realize now that the worst spots are actually ant bites which i got at the garden pulling up the blueberry bushes. what are the changes that a person would get hives AND ant bites at the same time?! based on where the hives are im pretty sure they are a contact rash from using a new-to-me sun screen this weekend at a cook out.

speaking of, how cute are my kids at the cook out "cheers-ing" their broccoli.


tonight is the Ordinary Radicals screening. i hope people show up! tomorrow is the farmers market booth and im a little nervous. i have some social limitations and GAH yeah i'm just a little stomach-in-knots-y. the kids are staying at davids parents tonight (first time ever!) so david and i can go to the screening & i dont have to worry about them tomorrow while im at the booth. pray pray pray for me please
