Big, Bad, Invisible bugs

I'm going out of my mind with discomfort tonight. The restless leg syndrome is probably the worst it's ever been right now. (took a very small dose of Ambien so hopefully, that will ease after a while) I've been having a lot of just pain in general since about 9pm and have had a few good contractions in that time. (all sporadic, no need to even call the doctor) I just want to throw a temper tantrum, lay down and kick my feet. To top it off, every so often, I feel like the biggest ant known to man keeps biting me on my arms, legs and torso. (I guess it would be more of a handful of those ants)
I had so many plans for today. I didn't really get anything done however. I think the only thing I had planned to do, that actually was accomplished was to buy some Christmas lights for when we get our tree. I'm going to go with the mini LED lights and have been buying a few boxes here and there since they're a little on the expensive side. (I was lucky tonight and they were 3 dollars off a box!) We bought Jasmine's dress for Christmas today. I've been casually looking for something for her for a few weeks. The other day, I was in Macy's and thought while I was there, I would take a look at the kid's clothes. Omigod. That store is ridiculous. I found the most gorgeous dress in her size, looked at the price and my jaw hit the floor. $78 for a kid's holiday dress. A dress she would wear once. We ended up with a dress from JcPenney that was half off and almost as cute as the one from Macy's. Ha, take that overpriced store. I can only imagine how much the adult dresses were. I've also been looking for a casual outfit for Thanksgiving for her. Something not quite as fancy, that she could wear whenever. I saw a cute little skirt and shirt ensemble today but left without it, I may go back and have her try it on. For now, I'm just going to try and concentrate on not taking a wire brush to my skin to get rid of the invisible bugs that climb on me. (you'd think I was on pcp)

We recently walked through Macy's and had to marvel and wonder who actually shops there. Definitely over priced, and alot of the merchandise does not fit the South Bend area.

Jamie, I hope those mean bugs are leaving you alone today! That must be a maddening feeling, and I hope it's gone away now.

Hey, you've got a little giftie over at my blog. :)

Hugs, Beth

K, might be able to help with the itchy buggy feeling. It's colder and the heat is on...might be your skin is irritated and drying out from those two. Try putting some lotion on before bed and see how you do.

I refuse to shop at Macy. The only thing they are good for is the parade on Thanksgiving. Otherwise I'm surprised they are still in business. (Hugs)Indigo
