Loren missed his game today. he really was too damn sick to play. his fever spiked all the way up around 103 and he looked like death this afternoon. if you can sound worse than death, he did. i rarely see him look that miserable. to top it all off i had to go to work this morning, so he got to spend a few hours on his own- not that he wasn't up to that. when the guys at the shop called to let me know they had the place open (about 8:45am), i'd been up for a couple hours, but i'd left my cell phone upstairs and the ring woke Loren up. he got some more ibuprofen down but still sorta steadily went downhill all day. i called everyone to let them know he wouldn't be playing today, and found him showered and just finished with lunch about 1pm.
we didn't really have any alternate plan, since last night i thought he'd be going to the game, so we ended up just taking it easy, finishing out our latest Star Trek DVD and just generally being couch potatoes. i took him back to his mom's around 6, and i've spent the rest of the night working on this website, save the time it took me to almost completely burn (having my attention on editing HTML documents) but nevertheless eat a little leftover originally-frozen-but-most-recently-refrigerated pizza. reading and eating go well together for many, and i'm no exception. i read a bit more of my book (Days of Infamy), which, if i may (tangentially) add, is great, since, if i may embellish (through extrapolation of the previous tangent, at extreme risk of complete digression), at approximately 5/8 through has finally progressed in plot to the point at which the Americans are striking back at the Japanese military occupying Hawaii. not to give anyone the impression that the book's not interesting- to the contrary!- but i nearly fell asleep right there in my chair, despite myself. sometimes food and stillness do that to me. but i didn't quite crash at the kitchen table.
incidentally, some people have dining room tables, and i'm quite certain that if my table inhabited one of those dining rooms, it would qualify for the descriptor, but be that as it may, the dining area designed into this modest townhouse doesn't really qualify as a room per se; it's more like an afterthought, an extension of the kitchen's space- hence the descriptor used.
but anyway.....accounting for the down time refueling, and adding in the 2 hrs i spent this morning, waiting around for someone to call me so i could go in to work, that comes to about 7 hrs today. which is plenty for this blogger.
but before i go, i figure i ought to mention that i find it slightly ironic i finally changed the picture on this page, to the one above, of Yours Truly and sisters, and just yesterday i shaved off my beard....so the picture doesn't really look like me....again. [shrug]
