...not much ado here Chez Byers. Griffin spiked a fever yesterday, so he's at home today with Aaron. I hate not having sick time to use. I burn up vacation days when I have to stay home. Could be worse, I suppose. I have a job. Back to the boy. He has been coughing a bit, too, so we're preemptively using the albuterol to help open him up so that he can cough the stuff up. Lovely visuals for you so early in the morning, eh? Sorry.

...Other than that, we're just keeping on. I'm looking into starting a new healthy eating/exercise kick. Maybe. I did find out that I don't have to give up diet Coke (woot!). But I do have to limit my alcohol intake. I would get a free day on this program, though, and I would make it Wednesday, I think, so that I can have my beer guilt-free. Priorities and all. But this program seems to be what many people are saying. Lots of lean protein. Fresh fruits and vegetables. Cut back on things like pasta and bread. Makes sense. We'll see. This dude also says to not worry as much about cardio exercise as you do weight training. While I believe that you need a mixture. But I'm not an expert, so we'll see how this works. I just want to be healthier and on top of my ever-out-of-control blood sugar.

I sure hope your household isn't getting the same thing that the Phillips' has had. It took a toll on Maggie.
I have also started to try to eat healthier, it was a horrible fatting winter for me.
