Well, the good news is that I didn't have a repeat showing of yesterday's horrifying dream last night.

The bad news is that I still didn't sleep.

My body has apparently decided that it is drastically opposed to something I ate yesterday, and is manifesting that opposition through incredibly severe indigestion, stomach cramps, nausea, and heartburn.  At 2:00 this morning I was in so much pain that I honestly thought that I was going to have to phone my parents, wake them up, and ask them to come get me and drive me to the hospital.

At some point the pain eased off a little and I caught about an hour or two of sleep.

I came into work this morning because there is a major project that needs to go out the door today, and it needed my attention.  Thankfully my boss is flexible, and if the pain gets worse it'll be fine to go home, and if not, I've made arrangements to leave slightly early and get a ride home from my parents who are making another airport run and will be in the area about 45 minutes or so before I would traditionally get off work.

I'm still in quite a bit of pain this morning, and at my coffee break I'll be heading to the nearby pharmacy to purchase some form of strong antacid to hopefully bring some relief.

The plan for once I get home tonight is simple.  Lay in bed.

Maybe do some things from bed.  For sure watch the newest episodes of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice.  Maybe update my budget.  Send a few emails, play a game online.  If the antacids really work, and I'm feeling like vertical is an option, I might even pack some more of my living room.

But mostly the plan is to rest.

And be incredibly thankful for a three day weekend.
