Even if I had any desire to.
I left school to get my hair done. Got it all done up and curled and wow! About 30 bobby pins and a bottle of hair spray. Grabbed my (beautiful) flowers and headed home. Alex came over and I ate cake and then we started our makeup. Goodthing we did. It was about 1 at this point. Maybe later. She gave me eye liner and I figured out mascara, covered my facial issues of the moment, and I felt beautiful. That's wierd for me, you know?
I got into my dress and my shoes and gloves and headed to steve's house. Of course I'd been getting ready for 4 hours. He was just pulling in the driveway when I got there, slipped into his tux and was ready. We took pictures with his family and headed over to my house for more pictures. I can't wait to see them all! It ended up being lovely out- not a drop of rain. All sun. Chelsey, richie, alex, and alex came over for pictures. Plus all their families, ha. Lots of smiling.
We ended up leaving late of course and got SO lost trying to find this girl cassidy's house to pick up her and lil matt. They're cool though. I mightve been upset if they were assholes we'd got lost to pick up. We finally got to the place and got inside! Went back out because I forgot the picture slip...
Did a general run of the place and got in line for pictures. I'm feeling just a little dizzy, warm maybe. Not so bad. Not odd at all, considering I was in a packed line just standing there with the sun on my face and I was waiting for dinner. We took our picture and went back down for dinner. I brought back a roll, brownie, cookie, and some salad. I did not like the salad, ate the roll, most of the cookie and brownie. I may have mentioned that my reflux hasn't been bothering me AT ALL recently. It's been so wonderful I kinda forgot to worry about it. All the main foods- ziti, stuffed shells, chicken- were DRENCHED AND DRIPPING red sauce. C'mon, now. Not only am I white, but nothing else to eat? I give in and decide to have a little. It's about a half our later, just as the music was about to start, I begin to feel VERY ill. I run for the bathroom without saying a word to steve, assuming ill be back in a minute. Ended up in the bathroom for about 45 minutes trying to feel well enough to go out and look for him. A teacher brought me stomach meds. I tried to settle down and down water, and finally left. The lady was nervous I would puke on her floor- I could tell. It was uncomfortable. During this time steve is FREAKING OUT trying to find me, and mikayla sees me in the bathroom and tells him, I guess I scared him a lot. I came out and found him and I cried because I hadn't meant to worry him and I still felt so sick and why tonight? We sat down. I ended up running to the bathroom and puking finally. I immediately felt so much better. I actually started dancing. Eventually I had to stop for a glass of water and I hoped just a minute to sit- no such luck. I ran and puked the rest of dinner up. And then danced the rest of the night. I had sooo much fun dancing. There's just something about it, you know? Plus half the crowd was rolling...But I like to think all the boys who hugged me and told me I looked beautiful really meant it, deep down. Let me have my moment.
We headed home a bit before eleven. I was so tired- just down. Any more and I would have puked again, I know it. We dropped matt and cassidy off and headed back to steve's house- I slept over. Put on my pjs, took ALL the bobby pins out, half brushed my hair, and we laid down to watch Nemo. I could not keep my eyes open, and passed out. He carried me to bed and I slept like a rock. Oh, somewhere in there I ate a bowl of cereal- I didn't want to, but I figured I prolly shouldn't sleep on an empty stomach needing to be settled, plus steve wouldn't let me not eat something.
