Awoke with only a 100.1 degree temperature, swallowed two Excedrin, showered, dressed, drank some coffee and prepared for a new day. A day out of bed. Wife needed some shopping done so I snatched her list from the refrigerator and was going to put the beat down on crowds by shopping early. You see, my daughter's long-anticipated birthday party culminating with both children staying at the lake with my in-laws occurs today, and I'm in charge of grilling the burgers. Also, despite the horrific events surrounding their first week off school (my parents brought back my daughter yesterday as I could not leave my sick-bed, despite my father now having pneumonia! and I've only worked two days this week) we must attempt stage-two, else we are no better than the evils which infiltrate my delirious dreams (I did dream of you all during my bedridden tenure, mostly in perverted and disturbing ways - and to most of you, I apologize.)
I may not be 100% today, but I am NOT spending it in bed.
