As my husband said I'm grounded, due to a sneaky spider bite.  I've been trying to nurse my arm by myself but after a week and a trip to a walk-in clinic because I couldn't get in to see my family Dr. I was pretty concerned because it was getting so much worse.  So off we go to VGH Emergency and I must say I was impressed on how we were looked after, thanks BC HEALTHCARE.  They lanced it and so I'll be off of cooking and cleaning duty...shucks!  That also means no quilting for awhile which is the real sad part because I've been trying to get my son's Christmas quilt done but he'll understand.
I've joined so that'll get a workout and I suppose some of my favourite television programs but most of I'll catch up on all my favourite bloggers.

That does not sound fun, was it poisonous or an allergic reaction? Our neighbor was bitten by a brown recluse, almost lost his legs, very scary. We have nothing poisonous here, but was working at the college and I guess one got out of the lab or a student bought it from out of state.
