I got this sweet Easter decoration at the thrift shop. It is flocked and pretty cute I would say vintage.
 Then I baked bread want the recipe? Easy buy frozen bread dough, thaw and cook. mmmmmmmm. I was going to make pizza but I didn't so I baked it for bread.

a couple of weeks ago I had a U.T.I. I got some drugs and it didn't go all away. So they ordered more and now I have a big rash on my legs. I went to the Dr today he takes one look and goes wow . Now that throws terror into your soul. I have a drug allergy my first allergy ever and it's the pits. I wanted to know how long before I could see this gone, I am headed for warm weather the end of this week. He gives me other drugs to help this and says 4 days it should be all gone. mmmmm I am in shorts weather in 4 days counting today. Holy cow this itches. and I couldn't see miss baby today because I am tired from the benadryl they gave me for the itching. Now that is T.M.I
On a more somber note prayers are needed for a young woman in her late 20's dying of cancer. This is a very hard time and she has fought the good fight she is being helped with hospice right now but could use a miracle. Her name is Erica.

Hi I'll put Erica on my prayer list.
Talking about allergic reaction. I had one like you out of the blue. It was the summer and I was out in the garden and I put on some OFF so I would't get any bug bites. I put it on my arms and when I went to bed I must have rubbed my eye somehow and woke up with my eyelid completely swollen.I looked horrible! It looked like I had been in a prize fight! Lol It was the oddest thing. So I don't even get near that stuff I'll take a bug bite before I'll get near it.

Poor thing. My daughter has a very allergic system and the Benadryl helps so keep it up until the rash is gone. Sorry to hear about the young girl. That is certainly way too early to suffer so much in ones life. Have a wonderul trip. There are always Capri pants to hide the rash.

I'm allergic to sulfa (sp) drugs. They gave me Bactrim once and I had an itchy rash too. Benadryl wipes you out. I hope this works its way out of your system soon. The bread looks great! And way easier than mine was! ;) Hope you feel better!

Sorry to hear about Erica. I will say a prayer for her and her family.
The rash sucks. Did you try smearing some oatmeal on your legs for awhile? Sounds gross and feels wierd but it seems to take the itch away.

They say drug allergies can happen at any age. Bummer for you, though. Hopefully, the new drug is fast and effective.
Prayers for Erica.....
