Feeling Better

Tammy's fever finally broke this morning but her headache remained for most of the day. It's good to see her getting around again. She did a slow walk on the treadmill this afternoon to try and get the fluids moving through her body as she's kind of swollen all over. She thinks that may be caused by one of the drugs she's taking. She mentioned tonight that she's beginning to feel better. That's great to hear. I'm thankful that so far Rachel and I have escaped this most nasty virus.

I've been making a half-hearted attempt to keep up with what's going with the government bailout of the struggling financial giants which apparently have much more influence over us all than they have a right to. Like most people, one of my main concerns is that the executives/CEO's/manager types of these failed companies should not be allowed to continue on at a rate of pay anywhere near what they've been getting if they're allowed to continue on at all. It's not that difficult a concept to grasp. These people drove their companies into the ground and have shown that they are incapable of running a successful business. Why continue to reward them?

But no, the Bush administration not only thinks that these overpayed examples of the Peter Principle should remain in their capacity but that they should also continue to receive their same compensation.

Oh, and check these bonus numbers out if you have 30 seconds.

It maddeningly reminds me of the lunacy at work in the FAA. Don't ask anything of management while trying to get costs under control. Excuse me but that is such utter bullshit!

I feel better now.

Glad to hear that Tammy is feeling better. It's disheartening to watch a loved one suffer, and the worries that go with it can be unnerving.

As I get older, I'm so much more aware of my health and find myself turning away more and more when people around me sneeze. I just don't recover as fast. I hate getting old.

Wishing you all the best.

Thanks, Saeedi.

I've been a big fan of antibacterial gels for a couple years while Tammy looks at me funny when I use it. She says she's changed her mind and will start carrying one around with her.

I keep a large community bottle of the stuff available for the people I work with. I figure it can't hurt but it does nothing for the people who show up at work when they're sick.
