poison oak

I've got poison oak again. On the inside of my right thigh. I noticed the first signs yesterday morning, then last night I was awakened by it. It was so bad I had to get up and use Zanfel. Thank heaven I had a little left. It took away a lot of the poison so I could rest somewhat. Such a restless night anyway, flanked by two cats who tend toward jealousy when one gets too close to me.

I have no idea where that poison oak came from. I think it must have been on something I came in contact with but I have no idea what. I wash everything I wear on hikes. I don't know.

I am making some progress, I think, with my messy Sims family. I had Judy hire a maid, who came in and cleaned for several hours. I discovered that we could call a clown catcher to get rid of the horrible clown who was keeping everyone awake (he came out of nowhere and hung around no matter how many times he was told to leave). I hope I can get one of these folks to LOOK at an ad in the paper or on the computer and get a job! Lordy!

I tried more Sims things. I moved Michael onto a vacant lot, built a house that was way too big, gradually reduced the size of it, learned that my decorating skills stink, had Michael get talking to the neighbors. He is more interested in Bella Goth than in Judith, unfortunately. I fear that there may be an affair in the making here, an extra-marital one. But maybe not! I then went to the Goths' house and got Michael to call the fire dept when he started a fire and burned the stove up. I then sat him down to learn cooking in the hopes that he will avoid such incidents in the future. Later I got Bella to call Michael and invite him over,but he declined. She then called Judith,who came over. That friendship is growing a little.

It's a hell of a struggle just trying to get these folks to operate relatively sanely.
