I woke up feeling absolutely miserable this morning from allergies. My throat is sore, my nose is stuffy, and well I don't have a fever I am having hot flashes.So realizing that I felt like shit I did the logical thing and took a sick day to rest up and take care of myself. What bothers me isn't being sick it's the two hours I spent struggling to sending the email out to let the company know.

Take time to do something simple and special. You don't need a big event to celebrate life, just some simple pleasant atmosphere. Personal favorite is an firepit out back with a good bottle of mead, some baked goods, some offered to Freya and Frigg to protect the home and family. Or you know, whatever you are into. Take sometime to celebrate simple things and live a little.Stay hyrdated, keep dreaming.

You'll start feeling thirsty at just 2-3% of your body's normal water loss. A 2% dehydration impairs performance in mental tasks and physical coordination. Many times when we have headaches it's due to dehydration... more

We all need it, it's biological, so find a consenting partner or just treat yourself to some alone time. Stay hydrated, keep dreaming.
Tuesdays are always worse than Monday. You're in the middle of it now, there's no weekend coming soon, and any previous weekend excitement is gone. All that you have is a day of work followed by 3 more days of work. Any dreams of actually being useful and productive this week are gone, the fire has gone out and you're just on autopilot wondering where your life went wrong.You're life hasn't gone wrong, you're not broken. You're a flawed human being in a broken... more
