...this sucks

I am feeling a little sous le météo today, so I'm not sure what I'm going to end up posting or when. I found some more articles, but I'm going to have to wait and see if I can come up with witty reparté to go with it. I'm just glad I'm going to be going home early.

I'm more worried about my asthma than anything else right now (because the baby is up to its usual kicks, so that's not a worry) because my back has been very tight lately, making it harder to breathe.

And I'm mad at myself because I was going to do a new recording for The Sims SingStar last night, but I heard the sirens go off at 11:30 before a severe thunderstorm hit hard in the area. The sirens prompted me to go online to find out that we were under a tornado warning, and I ended up spending part of my night in the bathroom.

I hate to admit this, but one of the things that manages to scare me is a thunderstorm. I hate hearing the thunder, seeing the lightning crack near my window freaks me out, and I'm always afraid that the power is going to go out. I know a lot of people who love thunderstorms, but they all turned out to be afraid of needles so they can't lord my fear over me. My husband called me from work to make sure I was O.K. and I sounded even more like a baby than when I was by myself.

I don't like to show any signs of weakness, but I've not been able to get through a thunderstorm without being at least a little scared. I would even wake up just before one would hit, and I can sleep through just about everything else.

Hopefully, I'll feel better soon.

You crack me up. I don't mind thunderstorms at all (in fact, I DO kind of enjoy them) - but I am SCARED TO DEATH of needles. I can't even watch a fake needle on TV.

One of these day's I'll have to post about getting knocked out by lighting during a thunderstorm...

What is it about thunderstorm people that they end up being afraid of needles? I want to do a study on it because I think I might be able to (gotta love Comparative Studies).
