Of course, I joke about getting in sick and wake up in hot flash hell.  Dizzy, throwing up, the whole nine yards.

Be careful what you wish for.  Luckily, the supervisor I get has the same issues (AND migraines, bless her heart)

We're still under a water ban.  Probably until late tonight at least.  They're doing a press conference at three today, which I'm betting is going to essentially be "We're screwed until Monday."

Bleh.  I was REALLY hoping to get a shower before Kent and I go see 'Hedwig' tomorrow (DPAC and Tyler's, being in Durham, aren't affected by the water ban).  There's still a faint glimmer of hope, but I may send him to Walgreens for dry shampoo.  We have an extra gallon of water thanks to Lily and Olivia (DHS brought them water, and Lily *insisted* on sharing with us.  And a little child....) which means a quick wash up will be an option, but...damnit...I want to be all sparkly clean (emphasis on sparkly) for our big anniversary date.

And, as I typed this...WE HAZ WATER!  If it is safe for restaurants to use, I can throw my scroungy butt in the shower!  Yay!

After a day of hot flashes, I seriously need it.  It always amazes me that even your wrists can sweat.  Ick.

Kent brought me home an orange Vitamin water and a fistful of Saltines, so I am feeling tons better.  I know Vitamin Water is just glorified Kool-Aid, but I always feel tons better on days like this when I have some.  I'm sure it is purely psychological, but if it works, it works.

i'm a sucker for powerade, which is glorified kool-aid as well. but those electrolytes are good for you when you've been sick and/or sweaty.

hope your water is safe again.

I'm sorry you're feeling so sick. I hope you feel better soon!

I'm glad you can shower now. I hope it helps you feel better.

Wet wipes can help, but only so much.

what happened with the water?

I also love vitamin water. I've wondered if it's psychological or if it really is all the "vitamins." I'm glad I'm not the only one!
