SCALP of all places! Right where I part my hair. The one place I didn't think to spray. Those crazy little buggers.
I mowed the lawn yesterday, and they were bouncing off me like mad. I had them in my eyes, behind my sunglasses, under my hat, in my clothes--and yes, it was ten in the morning. We officially have mosquitoes coming out of our ears, here.
My daughter asked me yesterday "Mom, why did God invent mosquitoes?"I said (impishly):

"He didn't. They just...are." She giggled and said "Maybe the Devil invented them, then!" And we had a laugh over it. Well, more like a cry. We really hate mosquitoes.

We were getting attacked right and left at Thing One's softball game last night--and THEN I had to drive across town to pick up Thing Two from Scout camp, and the mosquitoes were so bad they came into the car with us and we spent the entire drive home squishing them against the windows. Blood Suckers. I loathe them.

I think I'm becoming addicted to Diet Cherry Coke again. It is soooo good. I have a big insulated cup in my car--I pour a couple of cans and some ice in there, and the drive is goooood. Yummy.
Oh, and I have a NEW LOVE: I am a Frosted Mini Wheats Fan, and I have shunned the "flavor" options, keeping it all pure and everything, and THEN yesterday at the store I saw "Blueberry Muffin" flavor. Of course I bought some. And of course it's WONDERFUL. I suggest you run out and buy some, immediately. The only hitch it has--unless you wolf it down pretty quickly, the blueberry frosting dissolves off. But it does that normally, so I guess it's expected.
Well, time to dust and mop and vacuum and fold and wipe and scrub and flush! Happy Thursday!

OOH I love Frosted Mini Wheats as well! I wasn't impressed with the Brown Sugar flavor so I didn't try them - but I will try the Blueberry Muffins. Thanks for the tip!

Sorry about your mosquito bite. The are little devils I'll say and my dog who hates being in the house is actually asking to stay inside.... poor guy!

You're like the streetcorner cereal dealer. Weren't you the one who brough INDIANA JONES cereal to our attention?

Hugs on the skeeter bite. Ouch, ouch, ouch. Opportunistic little buggers, aren't they?

Have you tried the Strawberry ones?? They are SO GOOD. I will have to look for the blueberry.

I have looked high and low for that Indiana Jones Cereal. Can't find it anywhere.

Sorry about the 'geeters. They SUCK! Whoa, that was funny:) teehee I love puns. Cryptic is hovering, waiting for the computer and he says he doesn't like puns.

Hope your bite on your scalp heals soon. Try not to scratch. I just gave you that advice and Cryptic muttered, "Reaaallly..." So sorry. I guess it WAS kind of obvious advice.

Have a great weekend!

I loathe mosquitoes too. I step outside for 2.3 seconds and come in with about six bites.

I'm not a mini wheat fan - should I be?
