Mexican and Middle-Eastern foods DO NOT mix

ACK!
Stress time. How many days until Christmas?! I'm not doing well. I pretty much still need to do all of my shopping. To top things off...I just found out that one of my husband's friends is going to be crashing out at our place this weekend. This gets me going. He could possibly not pick a more incoveint time for us. I'm not feeling the Holiday cheer with this one. Especially when he is already planning to be here at New Year's too. I think we need to start charging a rate.
The past week has been a little crazy. Last night was one of two nights that we've actually been home in the last week. I fell asleep on the couch at 9:30 watching "West Wing". I feel kind of bad...but I think I get sleepy when I get pissed. It was about an hour after I found about our surprise guest coming. I can't really be mad at my husband (ever) because it's not his fault that his best friend is one of the most inconsiderate people in the world. My husband is a good friend. In fact, that's one of the many reasons why I fell in love with him so. This one particular friend knows that Star will almost never say "no". And I'll play along with it too. Even though I'm cursing him out under my breath with a smile on my face.
So...in the last week I've been to three work holiday parties. One of Star's and two of mine. In between all of that we went into Boston on Sunday to do some "Christmas shopping"...we never really did any. We went to the MFA again because I wanted Star to see the Art Deco exhibit. We saw our friend and decided to meet up with her after she got out of work for drinks. So we met and soon, drinks turned into dinner and more drinks. I ended up getting extremely sick. Not because of the drinks...but because like an idiot I had Mexican for lunch and Middle Eastern food for dinner. Apparently these foods don't mix (though Star...who actually has IBS did alright...of course he stays away from the real spicy and I don't). I think I might have felt the effects of these foods for three days. Today is the first morning since Sunday night that I've felt most myself.
Of course...then I think things like...maybe I'm pregnant. It can't be possible since I've just had my period and we've been super, super careful. It's happened to us before though
y...I should be getting ready for work right now. I get a half day...hooray! But then I get to go to the dentist (I feel like I was just there) for a cleaning.
