Every day for the last 2 weeks I've been sitting here checking up on my blogs and sewing away on my latest projects (coming, I promise!) and I itch and itch until I can no longer stand it. What started out as a small bout of poison ivy (oak, perhaps?), has now spread all over my left arm, my side, my stomach, and leg (from all the itching, no doubt). I swear to you, neither the Benedryl poison ivy lotion NOR the "never fail" Calamine lotion that my mother always used (the pink stuff, remember?) is working. Here we are 2 weeks later and I'm about to commit myself to the mental institution downtown because every square inch of me itches. ALL THE TIME.

I know the simple thing would be to go get a shot of cortisone, but I really would like to avoid that if I can. Enter my friend, Google (I believe you've met before). Google has told me to try a hot water bath of baking soda once a day, then to put Gold Bond Powder on my poisonous lesions. Think it will work? Yea, I don't know either but I can tell you what I"ll be doing tonight.
Stay tuned for the exciting development of curing Monogram Momma's
poison ivy via home remedies...
