I'm allergic to work

I swear that I have developed an allergy to work. I came to work tonight and went to the cafeteria to get a patient some lactose free milk. I came back up with the milk and developed hives on my arm. My arm swelled up and looked all gross and it was VERY itchy. The crappy thing about working at the hospital is that someone had benadryl cream and it (after half the tube) made the rash go away. Apparently rashes aren't a good reason to go home from the hospital. Who knows why I broke out, but I maintain that I am allergic to work. :)

Hair color isn't for me

So, I decided to color my hair. I wanted to do my bangs purple but my hairdresser was going to charge $40 for that, so I decided to do my whole head by myself. I bought this awsome burgandy color and went to town. It was not my best coloring attempt ever. Matt was in the bathroom when I did this, so I did it in the bedroom mirror which doesn't have the best lighting. The baby started crying about 3/4 of the way through so I quickly finished and went to get him. He kept trying to grab my processing hair, so that was fun. Then, I was looking at it and realized that I missed some spots so I got out the comb and tried to more evenly distribute it. I did this Thursday night because I wanted it to be colored for work Friday night. I rinsed it out, went to bed, and thought no more about it. When I got up for work Friday afternoon, I was fixing my hair and realized that I had a HUGE spot that wasn't colored. It was almost half of the back of my head. I don't know how that happened, but I had to go to work with it like that. I felt like an IDIOT! I got another bottle of color on the way home from work Sat. morning and did my hair again before I went to bed. That time it took. It looked so awsome for about a week. I was looking in the mirror at work tonight and noticed that my hair is almost black, but all that cool burgandy color is gone. I don't know where it went, but my hair isn't burgandy and cool in the light anymore. This is why I don't normally color my own hair. Bad stuff happens. And it was expensive - $8.00 a bottle and I used two. I should just learn to be happy
