I don't think rice is going to fix this.

I don’t think rice is going to fix this.

Well, shit. The first real day of my detox and things have already gone pear shaped. I was trying to document my week of detox via film, but apparently my mini-tripod hates me and fell over. And dunked the top of my camera into the almost-completed shake mixture. I panicked so hard and just cried over it for a good 15 minutes, all the while getting my boyfriend on the phone to ask what to do, doing it, and cleaning everything up. I really hope that the rice is going to fix it, but I have a bad feeling that it’s not. And if that’s the case, then I’m going to have to buy a new camera… even though this one was a present from my mum.

Other than that, the day went pretty good. Leaving out the Lecithin was a really good idea. As was straining the shake before I drank it. Though that may have taken away some of the vital components, so I’m going to try it without straining it tomorrow. I had to give my work mate a lift to pick up her car from where she parked it yesterday, since she was too drunk to pick it up herself last night, but apart from that all I did was some housework, since the family is coming up tomorrow, and I’m getting kicked out of my room to make room for them. The getting kicked out I don’t mind so much (well, I do, but I put up with it), but the fact that my cousin has three young children who are going to be sleeping in the room that I classify as my sacred space, worries me a little. It worries me every time, because every time I think that they’re going to break something, or pick up something sharp from my altar, or accidentally swallow one of my tumbled stones. And now, with the addition of my ancestral shrine, I am twice as worried. There are things that I have placed on there that I do not want them to touch, but really shouldn’t have to move just because we’re having family over.

I mean, they treat our house like their shack. I really don’t have any expectations that there are going to be too many boundaries. I guess we’ll see what happens when the time comes.

On a different note, my dog has some kind of throat sickness. We have to feed her cough syrup three times a day. Even with a syringe, she doesn’t make it easy for us. That’s something I am not looking forward to doing over the next couple of days.

Work mates are always fun.

Work mates are always fun.

I am so happy right now you guys. Not only did I have an amazing day, but my boyfriend got his license this morning. I let him drive my car this morning, which was scary, but I’m so proud of him.

Anyway, work brunch was great. I got there a little bit late since I had to be there for the test, and I had to pick up the mugs that we had made for our two bosses, but it was fun. The staff had decided to make mugs with the things we heard the most over the summer printed on the back of them, so our floor manager got “Steady but civilized”, since that’s what she usually says to the customers when they ask how the day as been, and our pasta chef got “Tell them to f@#! off” on his. Yes, that is what we heard most this summer. Especially when someone ordered soup on a 40 degree day. And sometimes we really wanted to carry out his orders, but we never did. Anyway, I put in the order for the mugs yesterday morning while I was in town, and picked them up this morning. They looked terrific. I forgot to take a photo of them, so I can’t show you guys, but they were just brilliant quality.

After all that happened today, the icing on the cake was having one of my work mates up to mine, when she was completely shit-faced. It was absolutely hilarious.

On the down side, this detox shake thing tastes like crap. Not even joking. It smells even worse. I am going to try it tomorrow without the lecithin and see if that helps at all. I sincerely hope that it does.

Detox time!!

Detox time!!

Orientation week at uni is always so hectic. I’m so glad that I don’t have to do all that stuff this year. It was so crazy last year, and this year was no different. I dropped off my boyfriend this morning and pretty much left to get coffee after that. It was nice to be able to sit in the Ref and use the internet again. I had other errands to run, but the best thing is that I was able to take back the capsules and get the actual ingredients. I am so excited to try this detox, but I have my end of summer work function tomorrow, so I’m going to get a taste for it during the day and start the proper detox on Thursday.

1 out of 3 isn't too bad.

1 out of 3 isn’t too bad.

Thank goodness for small miracles. I woke up rather early this morning and came upstairs, only to have mum tell me that not only were her friends going to town today, but that she would go and get my boy from work for me. So that took an absolute load off my chest, and let me work until 4pm to cover a lapse in shifts. Which would have been great, if I had known how to do half the stuff that was needed. But I made some pizzas by myself to help out, which was kinda scary. Anyway, 12-9, with a break 4-6. I am absolutely exhausted.

But, as a side note, my boyfriend, bless him, went and got me some things from the health food store that I need for my detox. Unfortunately, I actually need flax oil and lecithin granules, not the capsules that contain the same properties. Ah well, at least he got me some protein powder. One out of three is pretty good, especially since he didn’t really know what he was looking for. So, I’m going to have to start my detox on Tuesday after I’ve gotten all the other ingredients and the proper ingredients.

Anyway, I could go on about people and their behavior in restaurants, but I’m way too tired.
