I will try and respond to each and every one soon. Let me just say it’s a pleasure to have so many varied and interesting friends on here. I enjoy reading your journals and even though I don’t often post I feel honored to have been added to all your friends lists.
Thanks for the snow comments!! I’m in Ohio. And yesterday we got like 6″ of snow! Just here, and in the immediate maybe 30 miles around us right by Lake Erie. People in Cleveland and west got nothing. It’s like that here in the NE Ohio snow belt. But it was early! And we had no boots here yet or hats, gloves, or mittens. They were at the other house. I went and got some last night, as much as I could find in the attic over there. But I’m still missing MY boots, and most of the gloves.
PIERCED EAR QUESTION. I got my ears pierced 3 years ago. I usually wear some small earrings all the time, though sometimes I take them out for a month or so at a time. I just recently wore good hypoallergenic ones for about 2 months. I took them out 3 days ago and put in some hoops because I was going to some meetings and was in the mood for a change. I took them out the same night, but had noticed the left one had actually fallen out before I realized it. Wed. and Thurs. I wore none. Last night my left ear lobe hole felt itchy – I scratched it before I realized it but then stopped and realized it felt like it had a bump and it hurt a little. So I put some rubbing alcohol on a pad and cleaned it off. It has continued to itch now for about 12 hours and I’ve put alcohol on it 3 times. I looked at it in the mirror after cleaning today and see there is like this little white bump poking through from behind after I cleaned the back. Does anyone have any idea what this is, where it came from, and will it just go away on its own? Should I avoid earrings for a long period of time? Or just a few days? I’m thinking one thing I should do is give all my earrings a good bath in rubbing alcohol – it’s been a long time since I did that. Also, should I put something else on my ear besides rubbing alcohol – should I put neosporin or something on it?
