Ugh...my day off, and I can't even properly enjoy it. I've had this cough, whcih gets really bad at night, to the point that I've coughed enough to hurt my back. I've also done something to my shoulder, though I have no idea what. I think it's been long enough that I can take more Day-quil...hopefully that will curb this latest fit.

I can't believe it's already October. So much to do, and not enough time to do it. I need to get cracking on Halloween stuff. I have to make my niece a Tokyo Mew-Mew "Ichigo" costume. I am sure I can do it, but it will be complicated, and I want it to be absolutely kick ass. I've found the pale pink PVC I need, but the candy-apple red is proving more difficult. It looks like I will have to buy an article of clothing in the right fabric and take it apart and use the fabric. Luckily, there isn't much of the outfit that is red, and my niece is tiny. I also need to put together my costume, and get some pieces for Geoff's, so that we are authentic.

We had our fire inspection a couple of days ago. Although not a darn thing is different form our last inspection, we got a new inspector. One who gave us two pages of things that need to be done. Including cutting down weeds. By weeds, he meant my perennial garden. Grrrr.....I want the last of them to go dormant so I can cut them back. I am worried since our upstairs neighbor was freaking out about the report, and I am worried that she will just start messing with our shit. It is also annoying that our condo is the one with the furnaces and such in it, so we are held to a higher standard than the other units. I know our place is a mess, and I've been working on it, and have been trying desperately not to freak out....needless to say, this is not helping me make progress. With being sick, I am even more frustrated, because I feel like I should be plowing through the list, and I can barely move without hurting. Gah.

On a brighter note, I sent out e-vites for my third annual golden birthday bash. I am determined to have the house perfect in two weeks. That gives me a freebie week to relax, so that I don't have a freak out like I did last year. Plus, I want to be able to enjoy all of our cool Halloween decorations. After all, this is my absolute favorite time of year...I would love to actually enjoy it for once! I'm thinking I may update my Amazon wish list, just in case. I am a little bummed that some of my favorite people won't be able to attend, due to moves, and expanding families...but I am determined to have a great time. And, if the house is beautiful for the party, then it will be perfect for the inspection. I have to constantly remind myself that I will get through this just like I get through everything else. Tomorrow comes, no matter what.

Nest Sunday I will be seeing G's show...hurrah! I thought I would have to miss it, since I had a bunch of Sundays off for our show, and thought for sure I would have to work. However, I get the day off, so I can not only see the show, but I get to go with our friends, and hang with them afterward. The following week is NIN, our anniversary, then my friend LaLa is coming into town and we are spending a day together scrapbooking (don't act so surprised), then the bash, then the inspection, then the GZ Masquerade Ball (assuming it isn't directly on Halloween), auditions for a part I want really, really badly--so I am trying not to think about it, then our big trip to California...then sleep.

WEll, I have been upright for too long, and now my back is weeping. I'm off to lie down, and hoepfully my back will recover enough to wash a couple of loads of laundry. Excitement abounds...
