Last week sucked! The only good day was Monday. lol Tuesday I got heat stroke and was sent home early and had most of the teachers freaked out. Wednesday I stayed home with a fever and dizzy spells and muscle aches and pains from the heat stroke. Had to drink some OS-1 (Oral Rehydration Solution). It was gross. But not too bad if mixed with Aquarious sports drink. I burnt my thumb on Wednesday morning making breakfast too. Then on Friday night, while trying to treat my toe, I steamed two of my fingers to the point of blisters. ouch.
last night my period decided to show up 4 days early and kick my ass. cramps and back aches and I barely slept at all last night. This morning wasn't much better so I called in sick. Apparently we get 7 days of sick leave specifically for menstration, on top of our 20 days of paid sick leave. Nice. I think in 2 years I've only needed to use it 3 times. But it's very nice to have. I hope I can sleep tonight.
I feel guilty that I'm going to miss practice with Kanna this afternoon. The speech contest is this Friday. I'm not sure they'd appreciate me calling in sick and then showing up for an hour after school hours to coach a student. I guess We'll stay later tomorrow to make up for today. Why does this stuff always have to happen at the most inopportune times???
In other news, I bought the application form for the JLPT that will be held at the start of December. I also bought a drill book to help with kanji and grammar. It's time to crack down and study so I'll pass the test this time around. I should have taken it back in July, so now I can't put it off any more. Less than 3 months and counting! lol
I bought a pack of DVDs with dancing lessons on them. I plan to dance my way to fitness. The music is the kind of music I love and the dance moves are easy to follow and explained in 3 lessons on the DVD. I haven't started dancing yet as my foot is pretty sore and walking hurts, so dancing is out. But they look fun and I can't wait to get started! I plan to dance on days that I don't run :) I'm really excited, I love dancing, but I'm really shy so don't like to do it in front of people, unless I really know what I'm doing. So this works out great. I can wear whatever I want, turn my AC on high, and dance all I want with no one watching lol. It's great! :D
Lastly, my birthday is this Friday. I'll be 29. I don't feel 29. I don't really know how old I feel. lol I just am. I'm having a party Friday night. Nothing fancy, just dinner and Kareoke. I made reservations for 17 people. I hope that will be enough. I have 16 confirmed and 1 maybe. The other 10 people haven't responded so I'm assuming they aren't coming. Then on Saturday Nami and her daughter are coming over to my place for dinner. I'm going to make poutine (they've never heard of it before) and turkey spare ribs, and I've got some meat pies too. I've also ordered individual sized strawberry rubarb pies (x3) and individual sized triple chocolate brownies (x4). I figure this is great. Just enough for a taste, and then there will be none left for me to eat later. I'm doing really well with the paleo diet and I want to stick with it. But it's my birthday so I'm going to treat myself =D This weekend promises to be lots of fun :)
