Disconnecting...

So yesterday was an odd day.

I was fiddling with the computers so I ended up networking Moya and Lucien together and disconnecting from the net. Well actually I did that Saturday night but I just didn't feel like reconnecting the cable modem all day yesterday. Amazingly enough, I got some stuff done. How novel.

I had a fight with the parental units when we went out to lunch. One of these days I will learn to not only see that a topic of conversation is a Very Bad Idea (tm) but I will also be able to not go there. Until then, I think I will studiously avoid talking to them about anything that isn't immediately important (i.e. work). Fortunately they both seem to have gotten over it now so things are back to (ab)normal and only the usual tensions exist.

I'm about 97% not sick today. I took some generic dayquil just so I could be sure to not be sniffly or coughy. I think I've decided (possibly again) that kinda sorta taking care of myself isn't working out. I need to make a concerted effort to be healthy or else stuff like this is going to keep happening. I may be feeling not sick, but what bugs me is that I'm not feeling well. I feel icky and I can tell that it's a more fundamental thing. It's me, I'm not well and it's really messing with me. I think that my attempts at working out and being helathier are showing me just how far I've come (negatively) in the last few years.

Last week was sheer hell because I felt like I needed to go out and do something with myself, but my body made it clear that anything other than passing out in bed or the couch would leave me passed out on the floor. The one good thing about yesterday's arguement is that when I did finally get home and away from the folks, I had the urge to do something and that translated into working on the cars for a while and finally getting Audrey and Molly nice and clean again. I rand out of some car stuff before I was 100% done, but it felt good to be out and moving around etc...

I'm not cut out for being a slug....

Speaking of not being a slug, I'm going to go do a bunch of work stuff now.
