We have now traveled halfway across the United States with Sojourner. This is pretty exciting for Walter and I, and I'm sure Sojourner is happy that we can now begin the countdown to Bath, New Hampshire!!
The thing is, I'm a little glued to this bed because I don't want to be out in the heat and I'm eaten up with poison ivy. It started to break out yesterday as I was riding so I went to the Dr. to get a shot hoping that would prevent it from blowing up too badly. I was able to find a Doctor that I was going to be riding right by so once we got there Walter continued on with Soj to take him the last 2.5 miles to his home for the next 3 days.
Well, this morning the poison ivy was a hundred times worse. It is EVERYWHERE and itches like a million mosquito bites.
If only it had been cooler it would be an absolutely wonderful place to cookout and camp. I bet people really enjoy it there later in the season.
That night we were saved by the town of Checotah. They donated a motel room to us and Soj was comfortable at the The Glover Veterinary Clinic in a stall next to a sweet Palomino. We were so happy to be in air conditioning!
I am staying in my robe (not my robe, the robe that was in the closet here) today because I am in and out of the shower constantly. The only way I can stop the itch is to stand in burning water for a minute every hour or so. We did go to the grocery store earlier though so I could make some salads the way I like them. Mmmm....it was delicious.
