Chiggers

Guess that's what the bites on my legs are. I guess they are really bad here this year. And some other people have been getting chiggers, but mine seem to be the worst. To let you know how bad mine are, I almost took pictures. But, it's pretty gross, so I won't.
With that said. I now have the issue of looking gross to people. I want to wear pants, but it irritates them more and makes them itch even more. So, I'm trying to keep a positive attitude with by body partially covered in red bumps.
Thanks for praying!
I hear that we'll actually get to hang out with Nick definitely by the 3rd week if not the 2nd. So, we're on our first Day Five and it's getting difficult for me to really understand what it will look like to do this entire long, busy week three more times.
I'm trying to cram personal time in with the girls still under my supervision. That is usually where I get frustrated. I know I need personal time and the ONLY way to get it is to force them to do something that doesn't require me watching them. So, again, more prayer. I desire to not have to fight the chiggers the entire stay here. May it be that I just learned my lesson to not sit in the grass while my children run around. And may the bug spray work from here on out.

Oh man Sal (my oldest) gets them alot. Yuck they are no fun. I have heard that clear nail polish ( if you have any) helps. Also hot baths...Supposedly kills them.
I will pray for you.
