So today, after yelling at myself for about two hours, I managed to get outside and into the car. The sun is shining very very brightly and it physically hurt. I mean, not vampire-blistering, but after a minute or two the brightness made me nauseous, and quite dizzy.
I called in and apologized that I had to return home, and that I would try to return tonight when the blindingly bright thing was gone.
This is really really weird. When I got in the door, out of the brightness, it was like a cold compress to the forehead.
