Corn in my eye

I discovered something new over the summer. Apparently, my eye is allergic to corn juice. I just found these pictures on Susannah's camera or I would have posted this earlier. The story is . . . in between our two big road trips, I was husking some corn from my dad's garden while we were watching a movie. I rubbed my eye and noticed awhile later that my eye was really bothering me. I kept sweeping my finger along it thinking that an eyelash had gotten in.


After the movie I went and looked in the mirror and was shocked. These pictures actually don't do it justice. My eyeball was swollen - the white part. It was swollen up around the iris and was even partially coving it! It looked disgusting!

Susannah and Abraham ran to Wal-Mart and picked up some allergy eye drops. I put them in, went to bed and was back to normal by noon the next day! CRAZY!

Alona! You need to come back for a visit or somehow I need to get to Texas. I can't believe that it's been 10yrs since we all lived together. I drove past the Lowes a few days ago that we went a picked up Jens blocks for her bed at. =) LOL I told wendy that I still don't know what happened to the picture of her in her swimsuit! Seriously!! Take care =)
