Well, I did it. I got sick.
I woke up this morning and felt like CRAP. Sick to my stomach and crampy and a little bit nauseous. I took my shower and still felt lousy when I got out so I called in sick. I feel guilty doing that because I know when I'm not there it's crazy for everyone else (and just last Friday we had a crazy day because somebody had to go home) but I don't think I could have made it through the day. I went back to bed and slept straight through until 12:30. Of course now I feel totally fine so I feel even more guilty about missing work (especially since this means a day without pay for me since I don't have enough PTO to cover all the holidays) but I'm hoping that 15 hours of sleep was what I needed to get me through the next 2 weeks.
On my list for this week:
- Buy my car
- Measure and tape my new room
- Buy paint and start painting
- Start moving boxes over in my car
- Start packing the kitchen
- Organize the chaos in my apartment a little (especially since our manager asked today if we'd be willing to let potential tenants look at the place before we move out)
- Go to bed before 9 every night until I move
And now the pictures I promised. Unfortunately I don't have "before" pictures, but a lot of you have seen my place and those of you who haven't, well, knowing I'm a neat freak you can assume how it should look. =)
Unfortunately this is not the worst my room looked that night.
That empty space is where I was sitting. Sorting, sorting, sorting.

I'm off to eat something and pack some more, I'm sure. And then go to bed early. Prayers appreciated this week as I actually buy my car (2 days!) and start the moving/painting process at the new place. I got my tax kicker check and the check for the stereo this week so I'm feeling fairly good about bills (which is good because I'll be paying rent in 2 places for about 10 days, plus it costs to get my car checked out).
