I'm Strong to the Finich...

Cuz I eats me spinach. I'm Popeye the sailor man. Toot toot.



Check out the arm on this girl. Has she been working out? Is spinach really the answer? Has arm wrestling the boys in the neighborhood finally paid off?

Nope.

This arm is brought to you compliments of a mosquito. Sakes alive, she swells up like a balloon. Her arm reminds me of another time when she put a hair-tie around her wrist as she was going to bed. I didn't find it until the next morning when her hand was swollen to twice its normal size. I freaked out a little bit but once the elastic was off and the circulation back, the swelling gradually went down until it was back to normal.

Likewise these bites don't last forever, but in the meantime, I couldn't help thinking all day that she looked like Popeye. Moreover, Tyler came home tonight, took one look at Robyn's arm and said, "Robyn, you look like Popeye."

Now you see why we are married.

*There has been some doctoring of the photo thanks to Tyler, but that arm is all her.

Abbie also swells immensely. This week she got bitten on the side of her head... before I realized it, her eye was practically swollen shut.

I thought you had edited the arm to. That is crazy!

So crazy that she swells so bad. Many times Mark and I find we are on the exact same wavelength, and it never ceases to amaze us!
