off to a great start...

first of all, i've been sick. just a cold, no flu thank goodness. but i made myself stay in bed all weekend so that it didn't get out of control and so that i could heal relatively fast. BORING. i wasn't sick enough to actually sleep, just generally felt like crap, which is how i feel all the time now anyway so no biggie. so yesterday i finally felt all better except that i have no voice. which means i have no control. everyone is ignoring me, no one hears me. it is very frustrating. i didn't realize it was gone until i tried to order starbucks in the morning drive thru. i woke up extra early to take pictures at school. turns out i was very early and didn't need to be there for another hour. i hate waking up early. i did have a nice lunch with my friends, but i kept yapping away. straining my voice even more. i did a photo shoot after that. it is really hard to tell people where to stand, what to do, etc. without a voice. they were very patient with me tho. had a nice nights sleep which is always a luxury. woke up to no voice again. it was chaos in the morning. the dishwasher is broken, dishes are everywhere. we hate our dishwasher, nothing but problems. the guy did come to fix it at 7:45 which was nice, but added to the chaos. turns out we had stuffed too many knives in the top which was keeping it from closing. dumb. i still don't like it. then i thought i needed a cold glass of oj. i was a little nervous because i was craving oj like it was going out of style and then paid the price the other day when i barfed up a whole gallon it felt like. so i took out the gallon, shook it up really good... to find out the last person had not closed the cap all the way. oj sprayed all over the kitchen and almost all over the guy working on the dishwasher. p o'd at this point. i was especially mad because i really didn't want to take shower today. but as it dried, i found out that it works just as nicely as hairspary. just don't try to run your fingers through my hair today.
