Yesterday - my co-workers TOTALLY surprised me with a baby shower! They were so generous - I got loads of things that were on my registry! Now I barely have anything left to get. Just the stroller and a diaper pail (well, and diapers and wipes and baby soap - but those don't seem like a big deal). It was a little bit overwhelming to have all these people staring at me and watching me open presents, but baby stuff is so cute that I had a lot of fun opening everything.
Last night Aaron and I went to bed somewhat early (I've been REALLY tired when I get home after work this past week). I was snuggling up with my snoogle when I felt something stick me. I lifted up my leg - and it looked to me like I had a splinter. I called Aaron over and he pulled it out - and told me it was a tick! Yuck! In all my dog owning years, and dog walking in the woods - I've NEVER had a tick bite. And it hurts! Damn it.
Aaron is freaking out that I have Lyme's - so I called my doc this morning - we'll see what they say. I'm not too worried now, because the nurse did mention that in order to transfer Lyme's the tick needs to be attached to your body for 24 hours - and I really think that I actually felt it bite and we got it off right away. But we will see. I guess the bite will stay red and hurt for another few days, and then if the redness come back and spreads, that is when I need to worry.
