Health – or lack there of

October and November have been hard for me from a health aspect.  I was driving on the freeway on October 6th and as I was getting ready to exit I was rear ended.  My car was hardly damaged, but I took the major damage to my body.  I had a whiplash and a sprained back.  Car accidents are no fun.  And somehow in the accident the impact managed to put a massive dent in my stainless steel water bottle!  That’s interesting to me.  Then at the end of October I caught a cold.  It was unfortunate, but just a run of the mill cold.  Nothing too terrible.  Or so I thought.  I was working extremely hard and pretty long hours at that point and between that, the dust associated with working in a haunted house and just not getting the rest I needed and taking care of myself in general I became very sick.

bronchitis

This is the bacteria that causes bronchitis.  It sucks.  I have been sick for a month now and let me just say that I didn’t know that it was possible to be sick for this amount of time without having a disease like cancer or some serious something going on.  I have tried every single thing I can think of to get well.  I’ve tried over the counter cold medicine, home remedies, vaporizers and loads of extra sleep.  It’s been a long, long haul, but the good news is that I’m nearly over it and that I lost a significant amount of weight and now I have my flat stomach!  Woo hoo!  Now I just have to get into the gym and keep it that way.  I’m nearly well so hopefully I’ll be able to get in there on a regular basis.  It’s been over 6 weeks since I’ve really felt like a real, healthy human being, so let’s keep our fingers crossed that I’m nearly over this string of bad luck in keeping my health.  I’ve been coughing a lot less lately, but I really have pretty much no voice so if you call me either expect that I won’t have much of a voice or that I won’t answer my phone. 

Wow, I’ve been MIA for ages!

So life’s been pretty crazy the last few months.  September was mostly spent working and doing makeup on the weekends, so not a lot to write about there.  October, however, was crazy!  I was working during the day, then at night I went to the haunted house to do makeup.  This year was especially cool for me as I finally bought myself an airbrush!!!  This made it a lot easier for me to get out more makeup and to make it look a lot cooler!  Here are some of the people I did.

All in all it was a really great season.  I had a ton of fun and, even though I never really got a chance to dress up, I had a new corset made which is AWESOME!  I love it and I don’t have it.  Sadly I had to have it taken in and the guy who made it for me left for basic training without giving it back to me before he left.  Sad panda.  There goes about $160 until who knows when.  I also got these wicked awesome contacts and super long wig that I was going to use to be a character working in the front room.  Sadly, as I said, that only happened a couple of times during the season, but I sure looked cool!
