"Everybody's changing and I don't feel the same"

I've got a cold. I hate colds.
My eyes won't stop watering, my nose won't stop running, and I think I've got a mild fever.

Sucky.

I called in sick to work today. I might call in sick again for tomorrow. That's something I've never done before, 2 sick days in a row. I never get this sick. But, on the plus side, I don't have to go to work.

I'm giving my notice next week. Seriously. On Feb. 12th (Maybe the 13th if neither of them decide to come in on Sunday) I'm officially announcing to my supervisors that I quit.

Then I'm going to take the month of March off. Probably sell my car. Go to Southern California with my friend. Work a part time job at the Rainbow Before and After School Program a 10min walk from my house.

I'm going back to school. Something in the childcare field. I'm just too darn good at it not to do something about it. It's what I should have done 7 years ago.

2006 really is gonna be big for me, TGP.
