The good, the bad, and the ugly
I’m going to write this post backwards and start with the ugly so I can end on a positive note. 😉
While doing yard work this afternoon I uncovered a hornets nest. Boy were they pissed! I spent about 5 minutes shaking my ponytail trying to get one out of my hair. (my neighbors must’ve thought I was crazy!) Tony had just made a run to Home Depot and the boys were playing right by the nest. I took them away from the nest and into the back yard when G started rubbing his head and crying. TJ was looking at his leg saying there was one on him and then cried out in pain. I rushed the boys in the house, trying to brush one off of Gs pants. We get inside and shut the door thinking we’re safe when G holds his hand up and has one between his pinky and ring finger it got him and then I got it. Poor boy got stung twice!
Gs little pinky is still a little swollen and he kept grabbing his head crying because of the pain. And although I made a entertaining sight for the neighbors I wasn’t stung and I feel a little guilty since the little buggers only got my innocent little boys. 😦
TJs sugars have been in range more than they’ve been out of range! It’s so exciting when Dex shows him not only in range but steady! He’s had a couple lows lately, but thanks to Dex we usually catch those early and get him back up in range.
I don’t know if its the phase of the moon or what, but I’m just grateful that we are getting a couple days of good (although we never say numbers are good or bad in front of TJ, since we often have no idea why they are in or out of range) and hopeful that we can keep on going this way for a little longer. 🙂
