    I started feeling better later in the evening. Woke up at 4:00 and made the decision *not* to go to boot camp, though. I still feel "off," but so does DH and it's not the skiing. Most of my muscles...

    Well, even though I am an extrovert, i don't usually socialize on week nights, when it's a work day. DH and I do go out occasionally during the week, but we generally are not meeting others.
