BBQ Fest got me

Saturday night I had to walk home from the south end of the park, which is about a mile. The high had been predicted to be 69, which sounded like T-shirt and shorts weather to me, so I didn’t take a jacket. However, the temps barely made it to 60 all day, and as I walked out it was 54 and raining. By the time I got to the top of the hill I was soaked. “I hope I don’t get sick,” I thought.

Yesterday I seemed fine for most of the day, but about 7:00 I brought home Chinese food and couldn’t eat but a few bites of it. I felt funny and went on to bed. I woke back up a few minutes after 11 PM with chills, runny nose, coughing, fever in the 100-101 range – all the symptoms of a common cold. By 6:30 I had not been able to get back to sleep. So I emailed my co-workers, took some NyQuil, and finally got to sleep.

Some of you have sent me pics of construction and of the Best Booth trophy presentation. I will try to get those up this week. I will do a Saturday recap too. Saturday took some unexpected turns. Right now though I just want to get back to bed. Needless to say I will NOT be going out anywhere tonight.
