I have not done anything today... just kinda hanging out.... but I keep telling myself that I will just catch it all up when I get back.... and feel better.... I work in Real Estate.... just dealing with my clients one hour at a time....lol... I also manage a construction company...(that is the part that I am just kinda leaving alone....high demand)... it will all work out....
I had chills at lunch... could not eat anything... but got the coffee and brownie.. and did get half of both down.... I started to sweat! haha.. I should have known... anyway... My spirts are high and my will power even higher...
