I mowed today - east to west - and it took 2 hours and 15 minutes. Nice grass. It sprinkled a little a couple of times, but nothing serious.

I wasn't going to mow, because I have not felt good since yesterday. A pain on the left side of my chest, hard to breathe, it hurt to breathe, actually, and I was just feeling plum worn out. It seems to be best first thing in the morning, but as the day went on it got worse. It was the same today. But I needed to mow. So I took both of my regular allergy medicines, then I took a benidryl, and 2 ibupofren. I don't know if it was the meds or the bouncing around on the mower, but I felt some better afterward. I still can't take a real deep breath though. It feels like when I've had bruised ribs. I hope it's not pneumonia. I usually just say it's allergies, or maybe pluracy - even though I don't really even know what plurosy is, but someone said they had it once and it sounded like what I feel like. Whatever. At least I didn't fall off the mower and mow myself.

Here, now you can know what pleurisy is:

My dad gets it a lot, I get it sometimes. It helps to always go out in cool weather with a jacket or vest on (in fact, it may help to wear a sweater inside, too).
