I went to Bed with Scratches all over my Body!

Calm down ladies, it's not what you think.
Nothing that exciting--no I didn't go wrestle me some cacti, or Ben.
(sorry family for that picture but hey, we are married, we have kids, it happens)
I was itchy. So itchy I was using everything I could get my hands on to scratch with. Just so you know, even though the zipper on your hoody may feel good, it may leave a mark or two or six that your husband might look at and wonder what exactly was all over your neck....
I lived off this stuff when I was pregnant.
It worked great but there is never enough in one package.

I haven't had any packages of it in my house for oh, about six years now. Don't know why, it's some of the best stuff ever. I was going crazy last night. I got desperate.
I had the BEST IDEA EVER!!!!!



What have I been thinking buying tiny little packages at the store. Last night I ground up four, five, six handfuls, I have BIG hands, of oatmeal and put it in a baggie.
Then I put a few handfuls of oatmeal dust in my tub and settled in for a good soak with a book. My skin LOVES me today! NO itchy, No scratchy, No more funny looks from Ben.
I might do it again tonight. I was SO nice!

I am glad you are figuring it all out.. Maybe stop picking those wedgies, and the itching will stop!! jk

At my house we call that "Itchy butt". Haha it is when you need a bath, maybe you are sweaty or dirty or just need to clean up. Whatever it is bath time = Itchy Butt.
I so want to try that oatmeal thing though. It sounds nice, but how hard is it to get it down the drain? Will I have oatmeal in my crack?

I had some non FDA approved stuff from my Japanese was AMAZING!! I really miss it!

That's funny! I used that stuff (in the package) when i was pregnant too. However, the hot water made me itch even more. Lets just say, I was miserable! =)
