A Trip to the ER

There just never seems to be a dull moment in this household!

This morning Ryan got up and dressed like usual, but then announced he was bringing himself to the ER!  Seriously?  He had a cold last week, but that was all gone now.  Why would he need to go to the ER?  If the lights were on in the bedroom, I would have seen exactly why he needed to go!

I am now married to this...
He wouldn't let me take a picture of his face because (sorry honey - I still love you) frankly he looks like Sloth on Goonies! (one of the all time best movies EVER!)  His eyes are almost swollen shut and his face looks a bit misshapen.







So what is the problem?  This little bugger is it!  It is in the woods behind our house:

Poison Ivy!  This stuff has got to be one of the most stubborn little things on this earth!  We can try to dig it up, spray it, and even burn it (don't burn it by the way- it will just be airborne then and you can breath it in) and it will continue to poke it's little green shoots out of the soil!  Ry was trying to spare the children from being exposed to it and cut down some vines around where they were building a fort.  We have been working on clearing paths through the woods so the kids can play and run in there without the worry of becoming a ball of swollen itchiness so there are safe areas!  I guess he forgot to be careful and touched all of his exposed skin including his head after being exposed to the oil of the plant.  Somehow he got it on his chest, belly, and legs as well!  I have never had poison ivy (knock on wood) so I don't know how painful it is, but looking at him (after I giggle and say "Baby, baby ruuuuuttthhhhh" - that's from Goonies in case you didn't catch that) I can tell that he is just miserable!

Thankfully it won't last more than three weeks, (here I giggle again because he will have to meet with clients looking like Sloth) which is good, because right now he has a face only a mother could love - I guess a wife too.... - Oh and he is in pain and itchy, can't forget that part!  Is it terrible that I can't stop giggling??????
