Just for the record, sore throats suck. Going to the doctor's today to confirm my self-diagnoses of strep.

This is one thing where I feel safe in my self-diagnoses; I got strep a LOT as a child, and know all the signs. This sucks majorly because I have a bachelor party I'm supposed to attend for the best man from my wedding, and now I don't know if I'll be able to make it.

Time to ask the doctor, I suppose. Bah.

Sore throat, congestion, achy feeling all over. When I cough it feels like somebody is trying to shove a porcupine through my chest from the inside out. The fever of 100.6F confirms it; I'm sick.

Some hot tea and a nice hot shower helped clear up my congestion, for about a minute. If I want to keep my chest pain free, I'm going to have to suck down hot tea with honey every 5 minutes or so, and judging from the caffeine rush I got last night due to a few cups of tea, I just can't do that.

Maybe I'll just sit in the shower all day? Laptops are water-proof, right?

So, tonight I started doing sit-ups. Well, crunches I suppose, but in my mind I still call them sit-ups, so that's what I'm going to call them here.

I can't do a lot of sit-ups, on account of two things:

1) I have a large gut that gets in the way.

2) I have a large gut with few muscles underneath it.

The best way to get rid of these two things, of course, is to do sit-ups. Well, that's just the way it is, so I'll have to deal with it.

Tonight I did 10 sit-ups. No, that's not very many, and to be truthful it's not the most I can do. My plan is to add one every night. 11 tomorrow, 12 the next day, etc, constantly pushing myself to do "one more."

Eventually, obviously, I'm going to hit a wall that I can't pass right away. It might be at 15, it might be at 50, but it will be there. All I have to do when that happens is keep pushing myself until such a time as I can do one more. Then push myself past that, and on, and on, and on.

Why sit-ups? Well, it's something I can do without any equipment, in the privacy of my own home, and it uses muscles I want to strengthen. For that same reason, I'm working on push-ups in the same manner, only even slower.

My upper arms are very weak; I can barely do wussy push-ups with my knees touching the ground. This will obviously require a lot of work. Still, the best time to start is now. I'm not even letting this horrible sore throat and chest-wracking cough get in the way.

Okay, maybe I should let that get in the way, but I'm not. If I come up with one excuse, I'll come up with 100.

Time for no excuses.

I hope.

At 4:17 this morning, Monster yowled in fear. I turned on the light and jumped out of bed before even waking up to the point where I knew why I was getting out of bed. Good to know my zombie training hasn't been wasted.

She seemed fine, just a little nervous and tired. I'm guessing it was a bad dream. Since I was up anyway I let the girls out back for their morning rounds, and then headed back to bed.

At 6:30 my wife called me back into the bedroom (I got up at 6) because she thought Monster had thrown up. In fact, she had.

Hopefully the rest of Monster's day is better. That way the rest of MY day will be better as well.

May your day be better than Monster's morning.

Woke up with a stomach ache that translated into a headache and stomach ache.

Then one of the puppies decided to make a mess inside. A HUGE mess. How could a dog so tiny have so much in him?

Now we're spending the rest of the day out in the backyard with the dogs.

Feeling "blah" today, without much to say. That being said, I'll look to you for inspiration:

You're in heaven, and they have a library that has absolutely every single book ever made (and ever TO be made). What section do you visit first?

Last warning. TMI stands for Too Much Information. If you keep reading, it's your own fault.

Okay, really, last warning. )

Feeling sort of like my zombie icon, except for the exposed brain part.

Slow, dragging my feet. I said it elsewhere, but I'm at the point where I can actually feel the energy I'm expending while I type. I mean, it's just typing, I shouldn't have to make an effort to do it.

If I'm feeling like this tomorrow (it hit me last night, completely out of the blue), I'll be going to the doctor's office to figure out if I have malaria, or if I'm becoming a zombie, or something.

Just really tired, weak, and my brain's not working very well. I want to lay down and sleep for the rest of the day, but I have work, unlike the past couple of days. If today was like yesterday, I could go take a nap, but every day's a new day, I guess.

Time to get to work.
