I'm getting excited, nervous, anxious, scared, and overwhelmed! I'm starting to freak out about getting my 3 pound pack of 10,000 Italian Honey Bees next month. Did you read that right?! 10,000 bees!! The Sopranos should arrive around May 15th, and I've yet to paint or position their Top Bar hive. I need to re-read the "how to" book, watch the "how to" DVD, and get up the courage.
All people want to say to me is "you'll get stung". Like I don't know that already, but that's the one thing they MUST always remind me about?! Where are the words of encouragement? Where are the loving phrases like "we can't wait to taste some of that honey"? I only get panicked looks, and large intakes of breath when bees are discussed.
I'll show 'em!
Now, where did I put the Benedryl?
