Heeby Jeebies

We just came in from a fun day of playing outside. For some reason, I don't know why, I just say thank you Jesus, I rubbed the back of Izzy's head as we were walking in the house and realized she had a wood tick feasting on her. I screamed, and my neighbor Megan looked and quickly ran (her and her pregnant self) over to see what it was. I did this ridiculous Heeby Jeeby dance in a circle and tried to be calm so Isabelle didn't get freaked out. I took a deep breath and told her in a clam whisper that there was a tick on the back of her head. She (Megan) like a champ, asked where, lifted Izzy's hair and then pulled the thing out without batting a eye.

I hate ticks! I have a friend Margaret that also does the heeby jeeby dance at the talk or thought of ticks! Margaret, I thought you would appreciate my story and sympathize with me.

  1. You better leave Megan's phone number, because I am not pulling any ticks off of anybody! :)

  2. Friend, I almost threw up in my mouth when I saw the GIANT tick picture!! Heebie jeebies doesn't even begn to cover my phobia of these things... and it seems like it gets worse every year. Maybe I should try the hypnosis thing?...

  3. Margaret, I pulled one off of Jacob that night too, I had to toughen up and pull it off his head. Then we all got a big satisfaction from watching it burn!

  5. Carrie, don't worry, Brenton took the kids on a nature hike in the woods yesterday and he pulled a tick off of Andrew earlier so we believe that they all got them then. No worries for you!
