I’ve spent the last two and a half days suffering from some kind of stomach bug. Today I finally felt well enough to move around and clean the house. I had to bleach the bathroom and wash our sheets and bleach the kitchen, etc. I’ve been sick more in the last couple of years than I have in my entire life to that point and I have no idea why. I seem to be the only one in the family getting sick too. That sort of thing makes me wonder if it’s a matter of immunity. I was raised in a very clean house and as such I don’t suspect my immune system developed to its full capability. My wife and our kids, on the other hand, have been raised in homes with more…flexible…standards of cleanliness. Who knows why, I guess, but I’m getting sick of it. Haha.
I’m also REALLY itching to write some new prose so I think I’m going to work on that when I’m done here. I’m trying to work out a system to better prioritize my time, but I am an awful, awful waster of time and there’s no system that can fix that. I just need to get my ass in gear and turn my distractions off.
So, here’s hoping the rest of you out there are feeling well.
UPDATE: As of today, 4/23/13 the kids have both come down with fevers, but so far no yakking. That’s good. And I did write 500 words of new prose on the cozy novel yesterday and that felt just delightful.
