I'm trying to make a decision

and writing it out and explaining it may help.

I had planned to get up and go to Waikiki, swim 2000m, then bike 15 miles this morning. I've been planning to do it for a couple of weeks but the weather has been pretty sucky the last few Sunday mornings. Okay, the problem; I have a tooth ache that I'm had for 3 days and it's killing me. Now swimming and biking will neither help nor hurt the tooth ache, it just hurts. Also, this may be TMI but it's part of the process, I started my period and feel just generally crappy. Again, swimming and biking will neither hurt nor help this, though I may attract sharks (sick, I know). Now if I do this I will no doubt, a) feel very pleased with myself; b) take my mind off my pains for a few hours; c) do the brick I've been planning for weeks.

If I don't do this I will undoubtedly, a) feel like crap all day.

Okay, I can see which one wins. I'm pulling up the Waikiki cam to make sure it's nice over there. Also, I need to check for the box jellyfish warning to see if any are posted for today. Box jellyfish are very uncool when you are swimming. They sting you and the stings can be quite nasty.

So, apparently I have no reason not to go. There is Waikiki right now and it looks pretty darn nice.

Okay, I'm going to feed the animals, load up the car and go do it. I'll feel much better and then have an excuse for laying around this afternoon.

Aloha, a hui hou aku

Looks great to me - but the whole shark/jellyfish thing is a little more than I can think about!

End of the year
