Our church recently put in a sand volleyball court on the side of our church. As you can imagine, this provides hours and hours of entertainment not just for our youth, but for our entire church. I, not exactly being the athletic type, am not always super excited about getting out there and serving up some points, but I try. Last night after our night church service most everyone got out there and we played a few games. I have to admit, it was pretty fun. And then I woke up this morning... and I am covered and I mean covered in chigger bites. They are everywhere! Ankles, knees, behind the knees, back... EVERYWHERE. I am miserable. And so so itchy. I bought some Aveno anti-itch cream earlier today, but no relief. Finally, upon my mother 's recommendation and after much scratching, I drove to CVS and headed straight to the pharmacist. All I could say was " I have chigger bites everywhere and I am dying." And he said just one sweet word. "Chiggerx". I ran down the aisle and picked up two containers seeing my salvation in both. Paid and jumped into the car and opened that sucker up and started rubbing it anywhere and everywhere. Outcome? Still itchy. Only time will tell.

Short update on life.

We bought a new car. A mazda3 to be more specific. I feel very grown up now that I have been through the process of buying a new car.

My job is taking over my life. Which is a good thing, I like being successful, but don't like feeling like I've been run through the ringer at the end of every day.

Chris Richardson is one heck of a husband. The past two weeks, he's been washing and drying dishes, clothes and cars. He's also been making lots of delicious food!

I am learning to play the guitar. While my fingers are tender and sore, I love learning something new. I just hope that I will be decent by the time our Youth Service rolls around.

I might be losing my mind. I lost my cell phone in the bathroom at the Chick-Fil-A in the Waco mall and I can't seem to remember anything. I think I just have too much on my mind. That ever happen to you?
