It became very clear to me that I should take a break.
On top of my internet woes at work, and the demands my family were placing on my time, I woke up Saturday morning with the most tremendous headcold. My throat throbbed and closed up in a raw, swollen mess. My head filled with so much mucus that I couldn't hold it up and so little oxygen got to my brain that I definitely qualified for the term "brain dead."
I spent all of Saturday and Sunday sleeping. I went to work Monday but not much work got accomplished. I took off today. After trowling Vick's Vapor Rub on my chest and up my nostrils all day, I can breath again.
Thanks everyone for your well wishes and your sympathy.
