I've been quite down the last few days with the most terrible stomach flu. I've lost 5 pounds, and I am so weary that I've slept hours this afternoon -- something I normally just dream about. It's the worst sickness I've had in a long time, but weird. Aside from my stomach learning to sing in chorus, I'm actually quite well. I have no headaches, sore throat, or stuffy nose. My mind is clear, but, well, so is my intestinal tract. It's not been fun, but I'll count my blessings that it isn't worse.
I'm a space nerd, a family man, a middle of right-wing conservative, a church-goer, an enthusiastic guy, and a sufferer of occasional lower back pain. I'm fairly young with three wonderful children. Life is great, but far too short for all the things I want to do!
