If you've followed, I got bed bugs this week. It's something anyone can get anywhere. Fortunately it was contained before more than 2 apartments in the building got infected. (And I hope it stays that way!)
Today the bug guys came to spray. They didn't tell me every little detail, so I assumed I wouldn't have had to evacuate my apartment for long. Please tell everyone everything, even if you think they should just know every detail. Not everyone can forsee ever circumstance that needs to happen. I didn't assume that I needed to leave for the day...
I ended up having to call my mother this morning, before she was even awake, to ask her if I could come over there. I really hope that we didn't bring any bugs into her house, but there was a lot of nudity involved today to prevent anything from entering the house as best we could. (We changed into clean clothes after bathing at her house and containing the clothes we wore today, streaking was involved.)
Naturally I had to bag everything so nothing would spread in my apartment. I will be doing laundry for a couple of days to get everything washed--- Everything that can be washed. That includes things I just washed earlier this week.
The guy that entered my apartment today was overwhelmed by all my stuff piled in my kitchen, as per the guy from yesterday's instructions. But today's guy was happy that I actually took EVERYTHING from all the drawers (minus the kitchen area).
So today I was away from my disassembled computer until now. When away from my trackers, I tend to not eat enough, and today is no exception. Fortunately I am here and I can figure out what to snack on before bed to finish off my calories for the day. Mom provides a lot of fruit and veggies, so those are what I aim for when I'm there. Sure I do have a few other things (mmm, mint cookie) including actual meals, but away from my life line, I'm still not sure what I should eat and when without going over, so I tend to overcompensate by not eating enough. I hope one day to be confident enough to be able to actually eat properly at my mother's house.
The other thing is that now I have a lot of work to do. I managed all my calorie burn for the week last night, just in one night. I had to bag everything in one night... a 3 bedroom apartment with 4 people that live there. Fortunately the kids are old enough to actually do their work properly, or at least good enough that I don't have to question it too much. I did get to bed around midnight, but slept horribly. They provided new mattress zippered covers, so no bugs should be getting out of either part of my mattress tonight if any are left. I should sleep better tonight.
I won't have any problems getting my exercise in this week, perhaps I need to change my tracker to compensate for all the work I will be doing the next week or two.
Either way, I hate being away from Spark. I especially hate it when I have no control over it. I don't have a fancy phone that I can upload my meals as I eat during times away from my computer, so I'm without the lifeline when I don't have my computer.
The one thing I was able to do was write everything down I did eat so I wouldn't forget. I knew that I would likely be back here by the end of the night. I'm off to have a protein filled snack after I wash something to eat off of!
