home sick....again

Last week on Tuesday night, I came down with a cold, and was sick all the next day.

Last Friday night, I came down with the stomach flu, and was finally feeling 100 percent by Tuesday.

Last night while I was seeing Spamalot I came down with a cold, along with a sore throat that made my throat swell practically halfway shut. So today I've been home sick.

Why do I keep getting sick? Oh, wait it's the Early Childhood Center. Right.

You'd think that working at the ECC, after a while you'd build up an immunity to all the stuff the little kids are carrying. Which means I'd be sick less, not MORE. Except I've been sick three times in a little over a week. Ugh. I don't understand why my body hates me so much.

This is ridiculous

It's -12 degrees outside. That's the AIR temperature. The wind chill is -31. I've never experienced weather this cold in my entire life. I hate this.

schedules and head colds are scary

So, I finished writing my rehearsal schedule for my one-act tonight. Finally! I hated it more than...mushrooms. Or leaving doors open. Or sinus headaches. Or the smell of cottage cheese. (as for the taste, I can't really say. The smell makes me too scared to even taste it.) It's like sudoku: if you screw up ONE thing, you have to re-do the ENTIRE SCHEDULE! Ugh! I really hope that I did everything right, and that none of my actors have conflicts. If that does happen, I will cry. Probably a lot. In my schedule, I left open weekends (normally one a month) where Shannon and I could meet in St. Louis for the weekend and see each other. I hope the weekends I picked were okay. They were pretty much the only weekends that worked. Shannon and I are going to talk about it tonight. I'm really pretty excited for this semester, as much work as it will be.

Also, I have a small head cold today (thanks infants at the ECC!). It's a little disappointing, because last week I had a really good voice lesson, and this week I'm sick and had to cancel. But I'm already feeling better. I was feeling better by the afternoon, even. It happened last night. I was sitting in our living room doing homework when all of a sudden I stopped concentrating and realized that I was sick and had a really stuffy head. Normally it happens overnight when I get sick; I wake up with something I didn't have the day before. This has only happened to me once before, and I must say, I'm not a fan. I'd rather it just sneak up on me when I wake up in the morning. Hopefully whatever I have will be gone by morning. That would be absolutely fantastic.

I have become hopelessly addicted to LOST episodes online. I'm almost through the entire series. I have 12 more episodes to finish before the new season premieres on January 21. I'm going to watch another episode now.

Love Bade Me Welcome

Love bade me welcome, yet my soul drew back,
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-ey'd Love, observing me grow slack
From my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning
If I lack'd anything.

"A guest," I answer'd, "worthy to be here";
Love said, "You shall be he."
"I, the unkind, the ungrateful? ah my dear,
I cannot look on thee."
Love took my hand and smiling did reply,
"Who made the eyes but I?"

"Truth, Lord, but I have marr'd them; let my shame
Go where it doth deserve."
"And know you not," says Love, "who bore the blame?"
"My dear, then I will serve."
"You must sit down," says Love, "and taste my meat."
So I did sit and eat.

Things I love

It's been a while since I've blogged, and I missed it.

Things I love:
Bubble Baths
Working out
Fresh Groceries
New clothes
Red Wine
Dark Chocolate

For all the bitching and complaining I do, my life really is pretty great.

I'm sorry...
