My Week of Wonder

Sunday: Goober and her family drive out to California. I am sad.

Monday: my 21st birthday! My cake was... odd... and awesome.

Tuesday: The cold of DEATH takes over my system. I spend the whole day in bed, playing games. I start to notice that I can't taste things.

Wednesday: I spend most of the day in my bed, and then I spill something all over it. The futon in the living room becomes my domain. I still can't taste things.

Thursday: I can sometimes taste things! I am still spending most of my time on the couch, however. I try to not be sick, and I manage to shower, get dressed, do a bit of exercise, and clean the kitchen a bit before I am driven back to the couch with a horribly upset stomach, a huge headache, and cramps that come out of nowhere. Also, Siri drops Caiti on Brekke, and Caiti's forehead comes into contact with Brekke's tooth. Result: Caiti's first stitches!

Friday: I didn't get to bed until 2 am (whenever I have a cold I have trouble falling asleep and have fallen into the practice of staying up doing things until I'm exhausted) and then had to get up at 6:30 to take Mother somewhere so she could go on a choir tour. Then I go to WalMart to get supplies for a party. Then I start shouting "Banana!" and laughing uncontrollably and being really cranky. I finally take a nap, but so late that I have little time to do things and I'm late for my own party. Also, I can taste and smell again, but almost completely lose my voice within a few hours.

Friday night: Sparkly sweethearts are gross, I love my cousins and their witty witty minds, yes I really am that aware of innuendo, I'm glad I'm not the only person who wonders how vampires get it on when they have no blood, and I will never think of baseball the same way again. Also: pants!

Saturday: I'm still coughing, my voice is still really low and sometimes I can't talk at all, I actually took a shower, got dressed, and did some laundry (note to self: go put the load in the dryer!!), and I'm way looking forward to going out to lunch with a friend of mine.

Today is my birthday (yay!) and my mother invited my grandpa, and my aunt who lives with him, to come over for cake. My aunt called a little while before to offer me a birthday present. She told me to go to her website and pick something out.


My aunt is a really cool aunt to have. She plays in the SCA, and due to that, has worked up a great talent for making medieval costumes and period-style jewelry. Her pieces are beautiful. My favorite necklace is one that she gave me for Christmas. Both Siri and Caiti were given custom pieces made by her.

I'm really excited. And I plan to visit her site more frequently when I actually have money... someday. : D And if you have money, you should check out her site!

Also: for those of you who are coming to the Twilight Bash, you'll be meeting her.
