Today's the Day But ...

Hey everyone. Well, today's the day. I'm leaving 20 degrees in exchange for um, whatever it is in Florida right now. The thing that really sucks is that I caught something. I had a sore throat on Friday, and yesterday my throat still hurt and I also felt like I was starting to get stuffed up. I woke up at 3:00 AM and couldn't get back to sleep, but I had a meeting to go to. I'd been going back and forth on whether I was even going to go, but I'd decided to go. The way I felt yesterday morning almost changed my mind though. I did end up going, but throughout the day I started to feel worse and worse. In the afternoon I had to get up at least two or three times to go to the bathroom to blow my nose because I didn't want to share my nasty germs with anyone else. By the time I got back home I was absolutely wiped out, and pretty much went to bed right away. I made myself pack most of my stuff first though, and told myself that bed would be my reward for packing. I caught up on the rest of my soap, and watched Tuesdays American Idol where at least two people from Wisconsin are actually going to Hollywood! I got up to get some liquid because I started to get a low-grade temperature, and that was the last thing I needed. I'd been drinking water all throughout the meeting but once I got home the fluids pretty much stopped because I wasn't thirsty, but I knew I had to keep taking something in. At one point I got up to go get a new video tape and noticed the really pretty blue screen of death on my computer. I restarted that and left it alone. That's probably why I didn't see your message Pawpower, sorry about that. SMILE!!! This morning the sore throat seems to be gone, but I'm really stuffed up now and I seem to have picked up a cough. I've been so good this season about not getting sick, and now, the one time I don't need it, I've got it. It's been a few years since my last major bout with bronchitis, and I'm definitely going to be watching that. At least I feel more awake this morning, and I've taken both Vitamin C and a daytime cold pill, so hopefully it'll work as advertised and help knock this thing out.

I just realized that I should have gotten some gum. Normally when I fly I do all right, but my right ear has been bugging me because of this thing, and going up and down in the plane could be a really fun experience.

Tonight we're supposed to have this mixer thing where we all get together and talk, drink, and eat snacks. However, our plane is due in at around 6:00 PM, and we're probably going to want regular food. So, at this point I'm not sure if I'm going to go to the mixer. My plan at this point, unless I hear something different, is this. Eat supper, go to my room, set up my laptop, (reminder to self: check laptop to see if it has DVD playing software installed), and put in my new copy of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban that I got from a totally awesome person yesterday. Florida is an hour ahead of me, so I have to deal with the time change thing too. It'll be fine tonight, but not so fine tomorrow morning when I have to get up early. SMILE!

Well anyway, I suppose I should go for now. I still need to pack a few things, but I made myself a list of things I hadn't packed last night, so hopefully I won't forget anything. Oh yeah, and then there's the things that I need to remember not to pack like the pocket knife I carry around with me in my purse for opening packages and things while onsite with clients. Somehow I don't think the air port security people would let me keep that one. So, later everyone, and if all goes well I'll post from my hotel room tonight.

    I did not like these questions today! So, the fact that I got my second 10/10 of the week was definitely a nice surprise. Here are the questions.
