Big Toe Update & New Blog Alert

I realize that I didn't say what the cause of the rash/allergic reaction was. That's because we don't know. The doc was worried enough about getting me back to normal and said it was probably a reaction to poison oak or poison sumac. But we now have another theory. About a day later I found a strange bit mark on my big left toe. I remembered that while I was trying to move the bush a little bug bit me and since it hurt I quickly flicked it off. It was a tiny bug and looked like some sort of tick at first but could have been a spider.

The bumps are still there a few days later, even though I popped them, washed them with hydrogen peroxide and bandaged the toe with some Neosporin. It doesn't hurt and I don't really feel it unless I actually sit down and look at it. Cynthia thought it was a Brown Recluse Spider, but based on the gross pictures I have seen online (and I will not put up a link, go see for yourselves if you can stomach it), there's just no way.

So enough of that. Let's move on to something a little more interesting.

I started another blog. This one focuses on my new found hobby of genealogy. While Kiki and I were in Israel I got bit by the family history bug (hmmm, seems like a pattern is starting to emerge) and I have been spending a lot of time trying to uncover our family's ancestors. So go check it out.
