That is how high my fever got today. As of this morning when I saw the doc I had not broken 98.4 for several days and I did not have a fever this morning - so, he did not give me any medicine. He offered me throat lozenges but I have those already since the Army gives them away in bulk when we are sick (just like Motrin when we are in any kind of pain.)
Anyhow I came home at lunch and did not go back. About 3:45pm I was thinking "man I feel like crap, I should take some migraine meds." Then I remembered to take my temperature since the doc said to try and catch it when I was feeling terrible (it comes in waves) - 102.5! Just to make sure it wasn't a fluke I checked it about 10-15 min later and it was 100.5. I promptly put an ice pack on my head.
I am sure you can guess that I was not productive today since I was sick. About 30 min ago I did have a "good" (not terrible) feeling for a bit and I managed to glue some excess paint onto a canvas. What do I mean by excess paint? I don't clean off the paint pallets - the little bit of paint that is not used just drys onto the pallet and then after it has built up enough (this only takes about two times) then I peel it off and keep it. Why? I don't know really. I think its cool to look at the color swirls when I peel it off and flip it over. Since I have this fascination with the paint and a desire to re-use EVERYTHING then I decided I would try gluing it to a canvas for texture... plus I am really trying to use up the rest of the glue in the bottle on my desk because its clumpy. Things tend to not work right when they are several years old - the Army's fault not my own hehe.
Anyways, the not so good feeling is coming back so I'm gunna say goodnight. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day and I will "see" you for List It Tuesday.
