I am finally feeling better tonight. I've been sick with a cold the last few days and although I keep thinking I'm feeling better, everytime I do anything - like walk 20 steps - I find myself back in bed. I am NOT a nap person. I had a six hour one yesterday. Obviously, I'm ill. But I think it's more that I'm tired because I can't get enough oxygen because I'm so congested than it is the cold itself.

I'm not a very good patient, so I hope I am finally on the mend. I'm just pissed that I'm sick. And nothing makes me want to do the crappy jobs I've been putting off than not feeling like doing them. Suddenly, they're the most important thing I can imagine doing.

I am very behind at work after not being very productive this week but I just couldn't help it. I tried to do the essentials but anything more than that was beyond me.

I finally got my podcast done tonight. I sounded too awful to do it last night. Tonight I'm sounding pretty normal. I wanted to sound decent since it's the first week of the HBO ads, and yesterday I was just way too nasty sounding.

Well, I'm about ready for another long nap. At least it's bed time this time. Hopefully I'll wake up feeling even better in the morning.

Hearing Astronaut Jeff Ashby talk about the space program this week, and how space has been inhabited for seven years with the international space station, made me think about how our world can change in dramatic ways without us realizing it.

Our world changes, and our lives take twists and turns, that we cannot foresee and sometimes don't even recognize at the time. It makes it all the more important for us to live in the moment, appreciating the beauty of that time.
