09/21/2004 Entry: "I'm Sick"

I had a DJ gig on Saturday that took up the better part of the day. I had another one on Sunday that did the same. I decided to reward myself for my hard work with a day off. Due to other things going on, I had no drum students on Monday. So I really didn't "have" to do anything. (Well, I did need to design a web page, but that's a pretty lite day for me.) Anyway, I woke up on Monday morning, and I would of guessed I had the mumps. My throat felt a little sore, and very closed up. My legs were very sore, which I chalked up to standing up so much at the DJ gigs. But I went about my day, took Julia to school, made breakfast for Susan and me, and installed a new light in the drum studio. Around lunch time, I threw the web site together. About 3pm, I felt really tired. I fell asleep on the couch until 6pm. Even after that nap, I was still tired, and ended up going to bed "early" at 10pm.

I woke up to cranky babies at about 2am. Susan asked if I could help her get them downstairs so she could nurse them both in the La-Z-Boy. I could barely stand, my legs hurt so bad. And then I started to shiver. My ears were very hot, but I was very cold. Once downstairs, I took my temp. 100.3. I knew I would be home again today.

So here I am, posting, and it's the first thing I've done all day. Well, I packed Julia's lunch this morning, and I watched the boys for a little bit while Susan went to Wal-Mart. At 9am, I went back to bed, and watched a movie. After that, I slept on and off until about 3pm. I still have a slight fever, and my throat is still closed up. I hope I get back to the office tomorrow, 'cause I don't want to burn up a bunch of vacation time on this.

Replies: 1 person has rocked the mic!

Missed you at the skunk farm today. Hope you are feeling better my brother. Rest well.
