a little bit of rash

Living in Tn has so many perks when it come to home and Gardening. I have had my first garden this year and loved it. I love going outside to get organic fresh tomatoes, peppers and basil when ever I needed or wanted. I have loved not having a sprinkling system and my grass still grows( for the most part). And that I have had spontaneous beautiful plants and vines growing in my front yard. It was beautiful to have vines growing up the side of the house. Until one day someone told me that it might be Poison Ivy. Great, I have water and nourished a poison ivy plant in my front yard for a year. I had my doubts about it being poison ivy and thought it was a creeping jenny or something, but in the name of safety, I thought I would rip it out this week end. Now that I am covered in very itchy rash all over my body and on my face. I guess she was right.

Jake's Heaven

My neighbor had a "little" dirt delivered in my back yard. We didn't mind. Jake and Ash loved it. I had a good day myself. I didn't shower or get dressed just spent the day working and playing in the yard. It was one of those savouring the moment days. I loved it.

The power of Bleach

Before you call child protective services please continue to read. Ashley in the past would wake up with an occasional bloody nose. I asked her Doctor about it at her last appointment. He didn't seem to concerned. But in the last couple weeks it has gotten out of control. It is terrifying to wake up to your little girl covered in blood. Now,I just expect it. I had a friend that told me to put Vaseline in her nose before she goes to bed so I did that tonight, cross your finger for tomorrow morning.
So not only has this been a constant worry and I think that another doc appointment is in need. I am sick, sick, sick of doing the laundry!!!!! Crib sheets, jammies, blankets, let alone Ashley covered in blood everyday. It takes me a good hour or two to get it all washed and put back on her bed just for it to happen again the next night. But in all of this I have fallen in love with BLEACH. After trying to get the blood stains out I finally started using the oldest trick in the book, bleach. Whites are whiter and pinks still look bright. I have been walking around just finding things to bleach. Other than the fact that Jakes gray shorts turned a little purple/pink and I now have small discolored spots on other articles of clothing, my laundry looks much better and those cribs sheets look almost new. It been wonderful to have my house smell so clean. Now I just need to figure out what is going on with Ashley. I feel so bad for her. She always has something going on. I hope this clears up fast and isn't anything serious.
