Push day

This is one of those push days. It is a day when you push past how you really feel and do your job anyway. I feel like crap (yeah yeah, I know honey ... I feel all brown and lumpy?). I didn't sleep well last night.

My acid reflux was in a bad mood. Around 1 am, I woke up to my nostrils being flooded with stomach acid. Now, that was a pleasant way to wake up ... NOT !

I took Rantadine, which is the 'over the counter' equivalent of Zantac. It helps, but takes about 30 minutes to begin it's work. So, I was sitting up in the bed, afraid to lay back down, and trying not to puke while breathing that acid through my nose. My eyes were watering. My chest was hurting (from earlier sneezing). Sleep was a distant reality.

I vaguely recall, once I did lie back down, fighting Tammy for controlling interest of the covers. There was a hostile take over attempt, which (to the best of my recollection) I won.

I remember being up several times later. I remember that alarm going off and somewhere in the back of my brain a voice screaming, "NOOOOOOOOO !"

In spite of all that, here I am at work, teaching classes all about anchors and fasteners, and the exciting world of electrical grounding.

WeeeeeeHawwwwwww !!
