I've been on high bug alert lately. I got some nasty ant bites that got infected on my ankle a few months ago, plus I've been cleaning out the dusty storage spaces and corners of our porch where lots of spiders like hide out. And two days ago, I found a stupid tick on my dog even though she's on preventative. So I'm up on my bugs.

I know all about brown recluses, I had an in infestation in my apartment last year and they are almost impossible to get rid of. It helped me get over my phobia real quick though!

I've already had like 10 really bad bug bites in the past 3 weeks. Most of them were mosquitoes. I had one on my elbow (really) and it had to be something else... i'm guessing a spider bite. Why do bugs love me so much?!?!
