Jensen is still on lizard restriction. It’s been a long long 3 months. The biggest reason for this harsh punishment (besides the greatly reduced lizard population that we feel is necessary for bug control in our backyard) is that Jensen often has open sores on his hands. This is a result of his Atopic Dermatitis. He has come a long long way, and for the most part, his skin is under control. But the hands have taken the brunt of the affliction, as he has a hard time not picking at the skin when it begins to heal.
His dermatologist issued the edict “no handling of lizards, snakes, bugs, frogs, and alligators.” We are simply the messengers. And the enforcers.
We went camping with dear friends to celebrate Emme’s 15th birthday last week. This is our first time camping since All The Florida Hot and since Lizard Restriction. Jensen has one of his best buddies with him to do his bidding. Jensen located the creatures. His buddy did the capturing.
Jensen did find a way to enjoy the fruits of his labor up close and personal. I wanted to share the experience with you.
I would also like to report that I left my frozen cocktails at home in the freezer. Special thanks to Michelle for bringing extra and for the Fort Wilderness snack bar for serving a delightful concoction for a mere $8.25. WORTH IT.
