When Stupid is Just Stupid

Is this thing still on? Anyone out there? 

I have been enjoying summer to the fullest - days at the pool, nights at the bar, time in between with spin classes and work. And really, it's all been going smoothly. I'm tired, and that's ok - i'm tired from the sun and warm air and exercise. So, it's a good tired.

I'm also really, truly, stressed. Searching for a job has me feeling really down in the dumps but for the most part, I can roll with the stress... till a day like yesterday happens.

It was a normal day - doctors appointment, errands, cuddling with babies, etc. Until my husband and I saw that a storm was going to hit. We needed to cover my mom's pool for her so we headed out to do that when my husband got stung by a bee.

SERIOUSLY?! I haven't been stung by a bee since I was five and i'm not sure he had, either. I didn't even know what to do, it had been so long! 25 minutes and 6 different internet remedies later, my husband decided to go out and stomp on the bee that stung him. The fact that it was already dead didn't matter - squishing it was the key to revenge. I even decided to take a picture:
So, what does this picture not show?

It doesn't show the swarm that came up from under the steps when he stomped. Or the yellow jackets that dive bombed me. Or the stinger I had to get out of my leg later. In a matter of 30 minutes, we had both been stung and since it was now storming, the power was out. It was the kind of day that makes you hate nature, people.

Oh, and then I fell down the steps. Inside, so the only injuries are rug burn and my ego.

Happy Hump Day!
