Good News and Bad News

I have good news and bad news.

Good News: I've lost weight since the bridesmaid dress fittings.

Bad News: ...I've lost weight since the bridesmaid dress fittings...

My dress is pathetically large on me, and I wasn't even wearing the girdle I defied natural law and quantum physics to get into.

And its not looking to good in terms of bulking back up before the wedding, I am more stressed than I have ever been in my life.

I can't eat and I can't sleep. I'm almost constantly nautious and when I try to sleep at night my mind wakes me up about the most stupid things.

Yesterday was the Belmont Stakes horse race and I was really hoping whatshisface the guy who won the other two and has a son with Usher's disease would win. I don't even know his name, thats how unimportant it really is to me. But yet last night I woke up twice after dreaming about it.

I'm almost to the point that I'm ready to leave everything behind and show up to Egypt just myself and the clothes on my back. What? Luggage? No thanks.

Yesterday was the rehearsal dinner, don't ask me why it was a week before it just was, and it took place at Brunswick Bowl in Blaine. Now, it was great because afterwards we all went bowling and I found that Wii bowling has really improved my game. I'm not even kidding. But I also got food poisoning from the horrific stuff they passed off as food there. I haven't been able to keep anything down for almost 24 hours. I'm currently sipping campbell's chicken noodle and succeeding in keeping it confined to my stomach.

Small victories.

But I've got to figure out how to get my dress taken in one week before the wedding because stress+food poisoning ≠ filling out dresses one size too large.

As soon as I have the energy I'm going to upload a pic of the wicked awesome bag that mi habibtita Gulnari made for me.

Sorry about the food poisoning!!! I can really emphathize there because I seem to hve gotten some bug or the same this week. Not sure exactly but had me worried enough to take a pg test lol. I got the digital kind this time...

I know it's stressful to have to get the dress fixed w/ so little time...

The wii thing made me smile btw... Ive been wanting to go bowling, so we'll see if it's worked for me too!

Oh habibtita I hope you feel better soon. You play Wii! That's rokken like Dokken! (ew... dokken..)

My boss from when I worked at a Middle Eastern grocery store gave me a nice recipe for stomach ache. Once I was at work agonizing horribly from pain, and he told me to just boil water and dissolve some saffron rock candy in it, then drink it all. It was this crystallized sugar stuff that Iranian people put into their tea. (They carried Iranian goods. it was yummy good times.) Anyway ... I did that and it worked! YAY placebo! It made me fart though. :D

I just wanted to tell you a cute story.

Oh man. Food poisoning. Meh. InshaAllah I hope that passes along right quick.

Well, as stressful as it is - be happy you lost weight! I'm in this incredible start/stop method for shedding the pounds and it's not exactly working. One day I'll be 100% motivated - the next I'll eat a reese cup. You see, it's just not working out.

P.s. Did you eat tomatoes?

I hope you feel better. Ginger ale works on wonders on an upset stomach.
