Ebb and Flow...

For two nights last week I got 1000 words a night written. Which is big for me! But then, for the past two nights, I haven't gotten any done. Blah...

I'm chocking it up to plain old being tired and lazy. But tonight, I hope to make up for at least some of that. We'll see.

There hasn't been too much to do this weekend. Some last minute mother's day arrangements and hubby worked in the yard. One big thing did happen... I have my first mosquito bite of the season. Got it less than 30 minutes ago. Bugger! Although I should be thankful because I've seen them buzzing around for a while now and have avoided a bite until today. You see, I am an official mosquito magnet.

Once when I was in kid, I was in gym class and a friend looked at my legs and asked, "You got chicken pox?" Nope, I had a yard full of mosquitoes much like the rest of our area.

I've been trying to convince hubby we need to screen in the area under our second story porch. That way I would have somewhere to go and stick my tongue out at the little pests!

Well, I'll have to make sure Buckley has a large supply of heartworm pills and we get some bug spray. We've thought of buying one of those expensive mosquito machines, like the propane thing. But I'm not convinced they work. Anyone know any or used any? Want to share an opinion?

You sound like my son - he gets bitten on his legs so bad, he's scarred! Just now he was cleaning out the dog's water and came in with 7 bites! Urgh. Need to spray....

I'm like candy to the damn mosquitos. In the summer I can barely leave the house wihtout bug spray. I have it sitting right by the door so I can put it on right before I go out or take it with me if necessary.

Sucks (hee hee, literally)

LOL, you can tell I have little kids. The moment I read your title I thought of the cartoon.

Yep, if there are mosquitoes out there they think I'm fillet minion!

One day, we will find something to combat mosquitos. I'm determined!

LOL, Stacy. I've watched that with my nephew! The phrase came to mind because of our just having been to the beach and I thought of the waves coming and going... :-)
