I got my haircut. Yea!
Then I decided to mow my yard. You know, extra time to mow tonite. More "mini time" on Saturday! Yea!
NOT. The first thing that happened is that I ran over a HUGE ant pile with the mower. VERY unhappy and very unfriendly ants! They attacked me full force! All of them!
I started doing my version of the "ant dance." Picture jumping up and down and batting at ants, screaming and scratching!
I came inside and put some Benadryl cream on about 15 ant bites. I took some deep breaths. Got a drink. Not what I really wanted, but it was cold and wet.
I mustered up some courage and went back outside. This time, determined not to let a pile of little ants keep me from my appointed rounds.
I made about three passes with the mower across the yard. I noticed that the apple tree out front is covered with tiny green apples. Yea!
THEN. I got bit by a BEE! OUCH! This sent me into heavy breathing and more scratching and yelling and jumping around. I hate being stung. My body hates being stung. I took a Benadryl tablet this time. Deep breath....
Needless to say there will be no more mowing this evening. The bugs have won this battle.
Moral of my story. Stay inside and make minis! It's a lot safer!
