This week has been a rough one. I lent my lovely friend my sewing machine and upon its return I have not been able to get it to work. Ughhhh. That is such a totally awkward situation. According to the hubby you relinquish any right to get mad about something getting broken when you lend it out. I guess this is true. The stick part is that I can't simply head to Joannes and buy a new one. I would have worked on it further except I was SLAMMED with a horrible bug.
I am not going to sugar coat it, it has been awful. It hasn't helped that this week we have a large Congressional Delegation visitng the Embassy and I am the official photographer. I think I gave everyone a bit of a shock when I showed up in sweats this morning, but I quickly told them I would look more acceptable by the time the luncheon rolled around.
Yesterday after following around a 4 star Admiral (and getting sick infront of the motorcade drivers I didn't notice after running around a corner- certainly one of my new most embaressing moments) I headed home and CRASHED into bed.
I thought after 15 hours of sleep, four "get well soon" notes from Sawyer I would feel better but this is renltless. I am supposed to be out all day tomorrow with the delegation photographing their trips to various USAID sites, so my friends I know there is no way I am going to get a post in. But hopefully I am coherent enough that I can get the pattern for the coat up this afternoon.
