We ran out of shampoo. Completely without suds, and I had the clarity to see the solution and take action. This may, to those unfamiliar with 24 nausea, seem like little reason to get excited. It is perhaps a very small breakthrough, but I feel a subtle rush of pride when I think of how I went to Target and bought shampoo. I felt strong enough to buy maternity bloomers, dental floss, cat food, and two cushions for our outdoor chairs. Trust me, I am not too boastful. I know this isn't one of those inspirational Lance Armstrong kind of stories, but in my own way I have stepped in to the light, and I have crossed a finish line. We will be clean! That is all. I need to lie down now.
