And I had a bad day

It started off last night actually. I have a very sensitive gag reflex and I can't spit right. The combination is not good. It leads, on occasion, to vomiting. One of said occasions was last night. I am not a good puker; I'm full body, with nose, eyes, etc. involved. It's not pretty. I am also not sure if food poisoning was involved too because I ate salad with chicken (which should have been ok) and slightly questionable ranch. Either way, not a pleasant sight. Plus, lucky me, I missed the potty and hit the sink...which wasn't draining properly. So I used my coat hanger (aka home made toilet snake which I used to unclog my shower a few weeks ago) to open the drain wider. This led to cleaning the bathroom and re-brushing my teeth. And changing pjs.

This morning began with getting woken up an hour before my alarm with a combination of pacing, whining and barking from the dog. I ignored it for a few minutes, but I could tell that this was an emergency situation, so I got up.

Next was the rain. Normally rain doesn't bother me. The reason it's a problem right now is because the windshield wiper motor in my car is currently broken. Oddly enough, my appointment to get it fixed was today. So I drove, slowly, in the rain. It was ok because as long as I went under 40, I could see. I had to stop a couple of times to let people pass, but otherwise it was ok.

See aforementioned car appointment. My original "guesstimate" for all the things that need to be repaired was $500. The actual (or should I say closer guess) is more like $1000. So...they didn't fix anything! Luckily it was only misting on the way home. However, the wipers are stuck in the "up" position and I can't shove them back down. So now I get to decide on if I want to drop $1k on an old car, or try to get a "new" one.

Then, when I walked through the door, I got the unmistakable whiff of shit! yay! There was only a small bit on the carpet, the rest was on the hardwood. It had been there awhile, judging by the fact that it was stuck on the floor and required scrubbing. So after scooping, hand cleaning, then mopping, the floor is done. Carpet is still going through its treatment process.

Then I think I am getting sick again (well actually I don't think I ever got over the sinus infection and now it's just bad again). Sinus pressure is awful, slight fever and my eyes are red, watery and killing me. Plus my stomach is still queesy from last night and the whole dog poop buisness did not help matters.

Wish me luck for tomorrow!

Ryan, I'm so sorry that you had a bad day! You poor thing :( I'm thinking of you! Trust me, if you want to feel better, just call me. My life is a continuous roll of depression. Oh, and it might have to do with the fact that I'm single again.
Sad face to you too. It got better. My house no longer smells like poo, my car is fixed and I'm ignoring the fact that I have snot. I should be around this evening if you want to talk - I know we've been playing phone tag.
