Effin' mosquitos!

I got the world's worst night sleep last night. For some reason, I attract mosquitos like nobody's business. I'm a total magnet. If there's a mosquito in the tri-state area, it will find me and bite me. Quite frequently, I'll get bitten when nobody else around me does. Plus I'm allergic to the bites so much of the time they swell up to huge welts. I'm just one of those people, and it's genetic because my dad is the same way. We could go on a family vacation and sit outside for an hour and my dad and I would be covered in mosquito bites while Mom and my brother would have maybe 1 or 2, if that. Unfortunately, I suspect Theo inherited this trait too, as a couple of months ago I noticed two bites on him. Yay.

Anyway, so last night there was this mosquito and to add insult to injury, it kept flying right next to my ear. I don't know how they manage to do that, but the little buzz buzzing was constant. I spent half the night trying to swat at it because I couldn't sleep from the buzzing alone. I don't think I ended up smacking Kevin, but if I had it wouldn't be the first time. It then bit me. I had two bites on my hand that were so agonizing I couldn't sleep. I ended up having to get up at 4am to take a Benadryl, which quelled the itch enough to sleep. It seriously sucks!

On a better note, I made a ham and cheese quiche last night and it's really good!
