Smog and Sickness

Today I am a weird kind of sick that's about half way to being really sick. It started Friday night. I'm sure I got it from Ben, but he seemed to be in more of a head cold kind of place. I just feel achy. I'm acutely aware of every move I make in a way I never am. Everything hurts, head to toe. But that weird achiness and tiredness are my only symptoms. I think I have lupus. . .

Or maybe that's just the hypochondriac in me.

Instead, I'd like to officially blame my weird illness on the ridiculous smog layer that has held us hostage for the past 2 weeks. Every day the weather man says "the air is VERY unhealthy. Don't spend more time outside than you have to". As if being in our houses or offices is going to make it that much better? We have a filter on our furnace, but nothing that will clean out the GUNK that is hanging in the air all the time. It's dowright gross. And every morning the same weather man says "and it's not going anywhere any time soon. The 7 day forcast looks just like today." Cold. Smoggy. Unhealthy. (the above picture doesn't remotely do it justice, but it's the best one I could find online)

I never thought I'd wish for snow again, but I sort of do, a little bit.
