First, some housekeeping. This site is now officially called "Mistress Tootie Belle," so change your links accordingly if you so desire. I got a digital camera for my birthday, so I've put a bunch of pictures up at No, Seriously....if there's something you are dying to see, let me know. I also found some older pics so I put up an obligatory disgustingly cute baby pic (actually I think I'm about four) and a nice one of Kevin.
I suppose I could say the past 24 hours have been...interesting. I wanted to go back to the park yesterday, but there was some stupid thunderstorm. So I ended up sitting in my room like I always do, playing on the Internet.But anyway, I had to be at work early this morning, so I tried to go to bed early (for me). I should have known better. Have I mentioned that I hate spring? I ended up sitting awake for at least two hours- I can't sleep when I can't breathe. I hate that! I think it must have been after three, but I don't even know.
I woke up and took my meds and hoped the day would be good. When I was almost to the interstate I went, "Hey. Where's my contact?" Somehow- I don't know how- I ended up with just one. I had to drive to work like that; thankfully I didn't get pulled over. But hey, such is my life and I had a spare one at home. Today at BBW a representative from one of our third-party brands was coming to train us. I swear, as soon as I walked in the back door Jen was all like, "Are you ok?" and I said, "I was up. Until 3. Last night. Trying to breathe." (OK, so this stuff makes me a just wee bit cranky....) And immediately everyone was like, "Oh, are you OK???" "Yeah, just my STUPID asthma." And Jen was like, "Do you have a breathing machine? Did you use it?" "Yeah, I did it last night. " Kathleen- "You sure you're ok?" "Yeah, I put myself on steroids [note: corticosteroids, not the anabolic kind people abuse] and I should be OK. I just hate doing that casue I eat EVERYTHING in sight. One time I was on them I ate an entire box of Rice Krispie Treats in three days." Adele: "Oh no, honey, that's normal!"
Anyway, we went up front to listen to the presentation. I sat next to Kiernan, and she's like, "Are you okay? Did you eat breakfast?" "Yeah I had, uhhh, cherry cheesecake." She just looks at me. "It's good! It's got cheese in it! And fruit!" "Right, cheese...." Lauren sat on the other side of me and patted my back every time I started coughing. And Kathleen, who had to keep getting up to get stuff for the rep and I don't think she felt that great either, and I were just shooting looks back and forth, like, "Are you okay?" and "Yeah, this just sucks." I say all this not to elicit sympathy, merely to make the point, once again, that I have the greatest job in the world.
