So, there are these fantastic bugs here called black flies. They are no bigger than the tip of a pencil, but they are intense little buggers...we even have "black fly season," and no amount of organic bug spray will keep them away. It seems that I have developed an allergy to their bites. I got bit on my eye brow and my ear the same day, and the next morning this is what I looked like. I thought you might enjoy it! So, who is ready to move to Maine now? My eye was actually swollen shut...although it is hard to tell by looking at the picture. You get the point.
