Why do spiders like me so much and shouldn’t I have some spidey senses by now? I feel cheated! I was making dinner last night when the girl exclaims “you were bit again?” I had no idea. Last night it was a purple circle and then it was red and it has faded throughout the day. To be honest I was really worried that it was a tick bite from the circle but a girl at work’s husband was bit three times this summer and it didn’t look anything like this…
All I know is that it wasn’t a brown recluse for a change…..thank goodness….twice was enough for me! My shoulders finally feel normal, they were so stiff most of the day. The brown recluse bite was disgusting and left a big scar but the brown crunchy wolf spider that got me when I was in high school made me feel the worst. Every joint in my body hurt when I moved it for a whole day. I was a nurses aid early in the day (I hated study hall) and she found the bite, that is the first one that I remember. I definitely have had more spider venom than the average person and still no spidey senses…..very disappointing.
Book club was sparse tonight but we still managed a good discussion. Sarah’s Key is next month and then it’s my turn again. I promised to pick a small, sweet story since it will be so close to Christmas. I have three books sitting here that I need to read and two that I have to finish….plus the one that I am listening to in my car. There is never enough time.
I purchased my notebook for my November attempt at a novel……I would be happy with a decent short story. 🙂 I really like the yoobi notebooks that they have at Target. I needed super sturdy and they are, plus they donate one with every purchase to a classroom in need. I also picked up a 50 cent composition book for my super sloppy confusing notes and random ideas.
I am being dragged away to the couch and The Walking Dead by the girl, so until next time……Zia
