Work is better (not slow by any means, but I can at least breathe).
Eating is better (and drinking is gone for the week).
Burning Man packing is better (just mostly finished packing clothes, but tons more still to do).
My back is better (gym last night helped...I was VERY careful and worked HARD on my abs).
I feel better. :-)
P.S. See August Rush. It will make you smile.
