What a day.

There is no point in going over it all. It is crisis after crisis around here. I'm not talking about breaking fingernails either, I mean REAL problems. Sometimes life and death ones. Thank God I'm calm in a crisis. I break down later...like yesterday. 8 hours of crying. Fun shit. But then it's over and I get back to work. It is that or a padded room, you know? (Sometimes the padded room sounds pretty good though...)

I've still got froggy throat and now a big UGLY fever blister on my lip. I look sexy, let me tell ya. My head is starting to feel thick, too. Super.

The good news? It is time to go hooooome. Buh bye.

I am thinking that days like this, for you might end with you getting home,flopping in a chair and kicking your feet up; Jim taking one look at your face and very cautiously asking (from the kitchen) "Can I get you anything?" Then Louie and Maggie doing what dogs do best, coming up to your chair and giving you "the look" which cheers you up somewhat until you realize they really only wonder if you brought them home any surprises today. Okay, maybe that speculation is a stretch, but it sounds very plausible. My dogs were like that. Anyway, I hope it helps to know that in addition to the safety concerns, padded rooms are insulated and soft, so even sans furniture, being somewhat sound proof, they can be very restful. Hope you feel better tomorrow.

You are very welcome; Know how it goes; The phrase "keep the homefires burning" could very often have a dual meaning. In my case, I am the one that not only keeps the fires burning, but I am usually the schmuck who starts the damn fires in the first place. I understand the need to sleep it off, something I did today. Sometimes after rest, the situation and the solution seems more clear than when we first look at it.

Sleep definitely helps me gather strength when I CAN actually sleep...

Daedak - don't be too hard on yourself. We ALL make mistakes in our lives. You seems to be taking responsibility for your actions and that is AWESOME. More than most men I know can do. So give yourself some credit and push forward. God knows I'm not a saint...
