Ewww, bugs... BUG!

So over this weekend I went to my Grandma's little ranch. Well, as I was visiting I felt some little creeper bug bite me!

I figured oh well, no big deal...must be a mosquito. Well, that night it kept swelling...and swelling, and SWELLING. I thought I was just allergic and tried not to think about it and just took Ibuprophen and Benadryl and figured it would go away. The next day it was so big after working on it I couldn't get my shoes on for church! And then...extreme pain set in as I was working yesterday. Pretty soon it looked like this:

And honestly, that picture doesn't give it was hot and red and looked like I had broken my ankle since it was the size of a grapefruit all the way around. I was in tears by the time I got home from work and I realized this was no mosquito. Thank goodness I still have some good pain meds left over because I was in a ridiculous amount of pain. So what little snitchy bug did this to me?! And should we be worried? We don't know.

The swelling is starting to go down but the pain is so much worse....uhhhh. My whole foot tingles and I have a dull ache down through the muscle with shooting pain clear up to my thigh! What the heck?! I will kill that dumb bug.

I just keep thinking to myself, REALLY?! Really. Another thing? I am sick of having "things". Just put a target on my back. It is so funny the dumb things I get! And then I chuckle about it. And then I get bugged...pun intended.

 I was bummed too because these munchkins are in town:

My darling cousins who are getting so big! They all headed off to the parade this morning and I was so excited to go...but I was hopped up on pain meds...bummer.

Good thing we are having a blast anyway and I LOVE having my family here so much. These kids are TOO cute and it is fun having the grandparents, aunties and uncles around too.

Well I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Forf of July! Please no getting hurt with the fireworks tonight...AND NO MORE BUGS! They are dumb.
