Ok so I've been sick. Everyone else around me is getting SICK sick, where you can see and hear that they are sick because their noses are leaking and their voices get that sexy sick sound. I got some mutated form of this, with full body aches, killer sinus headaches and a smoker's cough. It started last Wednesday and I still have not been able to completely get rid of this headache. I took Thursday off and came in Friday because I had a meeting I thought was important, until I got my ass chewed out in the meeting (not my fault). I decided to leave for the day after that.
Saturday was pure fucking torture. It was about 100 degrees out and the neighborhood was having a block party. I forced myself to socialize for several hours, until my headache got so bad I thought I'd barf on my neighbors.
Sunday I slept until almost noon and spent the rest of the day trying to be as comfortable as possible in the unbearable heat. We are SO getting air conditioning.
I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, so bear with me! For now, here's a photo of the house, which the painter managed to get painted without being arrested again. I think it turned out beautifully. And for what it's worth, I am now hearing that all painters are alcoholics, which is weird. Also, we got new gutters but this picture is from Wednesday, pre-gutters. I'll eventually get a new photo up of the house with the gutters.
