Because I'm up at 2:40 in the morning, I thought I'd share.
I have head lice. This is the most funkiest thing to have as an adult. And the hardest thing to treat when you are alone. I needed six hands to do that whole comb thing. And to be able to see the back of my head would have been nice. Maybe if I knew how to style my hair more than blow dry down and ponytail up, then I could do it. I really hope I did it right and they'll be pretty much gone. I don't know how to check for head lice by myself unless I find one in my bangs again. Or randomly scratch one out of my hair....again.
It was the most disgusting night I've had, well, ever. And now I just feel like they're everywhere.
But, yeah, head lice. All I have to say is: STUPID KIDS!!! Well, it's not their faults. Anyway, emailing the principal and the assistant principal (and a few co-workers I share a room with or spend a lot of time with) at 2:30 in the morning to tell them I have head lice and to watch out is NOT something I thought I'd do during my first year of teaching.
Even though I put them in super hot water, I think I'm going to go buy new brushes and combs. Just for some peace of mind. I don't even know where I want to sleep tonight. Just the thought of going into bed (even though I spray that stuff on it) makes me squirm. And I don't want to sit back on the chair I was on. Or the other one, even though I haven't sat in that one since September. I am sitting on my desk chair, but that was after a careful inspection. I figured I'd see a white lice bug thing on a black background...
Well, better go put more clothes in the washing machine. Good thing I bought more laundry detergent earlier today (well, yesterday) when I was infecting everyone with my nasty head lice.
And...I just found a live one. Son of a bitch! D:
Edit: I spent about 15 minutes combing my hair with one of my extra combs and didn't find anymore. Maybe it was one that just fell out and I thought it was alive. It's almost 4 now, and I still don't want to go to sleep. I still have more laundry to do. The stuff that can't be cleaned in hot water, I was told to put in a garbage back and wait for 2-4 weeks. I had clean laundry that I touched Friday night to move into the closet (on a drying rack). I'm wondering if I should put them in a bag or clean them again. The only thing is, that's a lot of my work clothes. If I put them in a bag too, then what do I wear?
