Still not quite 100%

I made it into work today, but I'm not sure if I'm still not quite right from what bothered me on Saturday or if the breakfast I had at the cafeteria this morning fought back, but either way, I had to leave work early. I wandered home, put up the footstool on the couch, grabbed the nearest blanket and dropped off. Five hours later, my family woke me up when they got home. wishweaver recommended I go see the doctor tomorrow, but I'm thinking if this bug will just pass through, I'll be o.k.

I'll decide whether or not I'm going to work when I wake up. Right now, I would say it's 49/51, leaning toward staying at home tomorrow also. I hate to burn the sick leave, but at least I have it. I was feeling a little better this evening, so I accompanied Wish to the local Giant to pick up a few things, which may have been a mistake. I felt O.K. when we left, but I was really worn out by the time we got home, and that's not like me. I think I've been sick more days this past January/February than I had been the past two years.

Dunno. I'll see what happens tomorrow morning.

Still, I managed to get some writing done. I added 1409 words to Childhood's Tears as well as working out some more plot points to my tie-in pitch. Also there's a really cool thread going on at Absolute Write in the Writing Novels forum called "Brutalize the Plot-in-a-Line". People are posting the heart of thier current WIP in one sentence and then others on the board are critiquing it. There have been some very good discussions going on about what makes a good tag line, how to boil your story down into one line and what it might mean if you can't do that. (You don't have enough story or else you have too much story for one book are two options.) I've gotten some good feedback about my one-liner for CSD:Dragon Couchant and I'm definitely taking them to heart.

However, it's late and my body is trying to get angry with me again, so I'm off to bed.
