Today was a bad one in the fever/headache/fatigue wars. I know, I know, I should call a medical professional about this problem, but I don’t want to. I’m sure in the diagnostic stage there will be a blood test, and while I’m not afraid of needles or anything, blood tests suck for me. I have hide-and-go-seek veins and drawing blood ALWAYS involves at least three stabs before they strike gold – the scenario usually goes something like this:

Me: Are you the head vampire? Because it’s hard to get any blood out of me, it’s best if the head vampire gives it a shot right from the start.

Phlebotomist: I can handle this, don’t worry.

Me: Okay….

Several stabs later…

Phlebotomist: Let me go get the lady who’s best with difficult veins.

Me: *fumes* I told you so.

Anyway, since I always come out full of holes, I am understandably loathe to have blood drawn. One stab I can handle, three or four gets annoying.

I spent the day headachy and feverish, and it really put a cramp in my productivity. Which needs to NOT be cramped because I’ve signed myself up for six days at the Oregon State Fair, selling soap. This is one of those “Hey COOL!!” opportunity with accompanying “Oh Crap, that could be a lot of soap I need to have on hand!” feelings. I recently bought two more soap molds and just ordered 1000 more boxes, so theoretically I can handle it. But I need to be feeling better than I did today to have enough stock.

Along those lines, I could probably use a helper. The dates are 8-31 through 9-5 and while I think I can get helpers for the Saturday and Sunday, that leaves four weekdays where I’m alone. I can’t afford to pay much, but if you know a bored college student or teenager (or anyone else) who’d like to earn a few bucks for giving me bathroom breaks, etc. leave me a message.

    Hi! I live in Salem and may be able to help out. Would I have to pay fair admittance?

    Hi Sally – I think I’m entitled to a couple extra passes for helpers or employees, and if not, I’d pay admission. Send me an email to claire @ estelledesign.com and I’ll keep in touch.
