The Meat Grinder, and Fishies

I'm planning on putting Bear Naked through the Meat Grinder no later than Wednesday of next week. It might have been sooner, but yesterday, for some odd reason, I developed a fever but no other symptoms.

AS can be a very strange disorder. I'll get fevers, chills, exhaustion, pain and inflammation in joints that don't normally have issues (my hip has been killing me)... and all of it can be attributed to my ankylosing spondylitis.


So instead of hitting around 95% yesterday like I'd hoped, I barely hit 92%. It didn't help that Eldest Son decided I had to hear about every single video game related thing he was working on, disrupting what little flow I had going. And when you try to explain to him that you're working, he gives you that blank stare, waits patiently for you to finish, then resumes right where he left off.

Le sigh.

I'm hoping today I'll hit near the 68k mark, but I doubt it. That would be a little over 3200 words, and my hands can't handle that. I'll probably hit between 1000 and 2300 words, meaning the rough draft will be completed next week.

On the upside of things, we're planning on taking the kids to the aquarium this weekend, unless my body decides that's not gonna happen. It's the one thing Eldest Son wanted for his birthday. That, plus teriyaki shrimp at his favorite Japanese steak house. So I'll be getting my fish two ways: swimming and sushi!

Have a good weekend!
