So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Monday - the day from hell

This day started off badly. I got bit/stung/infected by something yesterday and have a feverish welt the size of a baseball on my right forearm. Sunday night, I took two Benadryl before bedtime. Well, I tossed and turned for several hours having a Groundhog Day style dream about work and a professional meeting I have tonight. Then, I finally crashed about 4 a.m. and couldn't hardly wake up. I crawled out of bed at 7:10 a.m. and had to gather the trash and take it out. Mind you, my garage door opener still doesn't work either. So, I did that. Got the kids up and fed. Packed lunches and snacks, backpacks, gathered my stuff and got it all out in the car. I didn't dress Stinkerbelle, but grabbed all her stuff and took her to daycare in her PJs and got her dressed and groomed from there. I had to open the garage door manually, pull the car out, go back in and close and lock it, go out through the front door. So, we're finally on the road and I get stuck behind a school bus. Then, I can't get across traffic. ARGH. Finally get the boys to school and they're on time. Hooray. Do my makeup at a stoplight. Get Stinkerbelle to school and dressed. Whew.

On the road and hoping the worst is behind me. Finally arrive at work at 9:15 a.m. I have the day from hell ahead of me, too. I have about 17 stories (no exaggeration) due in the morning. So, I will be writing like a madwoman today. I have a professional meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m. on top of it all. I will likely be at work till midnight. I still have a Benadryl hangover as well as a sinus headache. Joy.

But, one thing is looking positive for me. My daily Lord of the Rings calendar has a picture of Pippin and Gandalf on it today. So, I have Pippin to look at all day long.
