Ever since I've woken up today, I've felt like something was caught in my throat, like someone is putting their fingers over the opening to my esophagus, like where my tonsils are. It's really annoying but not painful. I did some googling tonight and it's pretty that I have throat cancer.
I'm just kidding, of course. The WWW has given us far too many options for self-diagnosis. I do think I'm going to make a doctor's appointment, though. It's driving me crazy. The only way happy is if I'm drinking water because it makes the feeling go away for a split second.
In other news, I started exercising with the kids today. I can beat them in push-ups. But they all beat me running. I told them that if any of them let me beat them, they had to do an extra lap. All but two beat me, and I just didn't have the heart to send asthma-boy or recovering-from-a-sprained-ankle boy around again, though.
First day of class tomorrow, my last class in my Master's Program. I'm pretty excited. Not about class, but about a Master's. Then I can move on with my life.
