I can. I’m so happy it’s Friday. This has been a hectic week and yesterday nearly killed me.
We got a few icy patches on the roadways but that was it. No major ice event. However, they still closed the schools which I think was totally dumb. What if we really have an icy day? Then what? You going to make the kids go to school anyway? And now they have to make up a day. Stupid.
Oh well. I had to work late. Didn’t get home until after 6. I was such a bad mom, I made mac & cheese for dinner and then let the kiddo play on the Wii (after he did his homework – what little he had). I answered emails. And then I sat on the couch and stared at the trainwreck UT-Alabama game. And it was, indeed, a trainwreck.
Tonight I have one more board meeting with one group and I have to prepare for another chapter meeting with the other group. I’m spent. I want nothing more than to stare for hours on end at my little computer and get lost in the Otherworld. And the harder I try, it seems, the harder I’m thwarted. Quite frankly it’s pissing me off.
Still cold here. The low was 14 degrees last night. The coldest it’s been here in 10 years. The news is calling it “bitter blast” or “arctic blast” because they’re not creative enough to call it anything else. I wonder what I’d call it if I was a TV news producer? Hm. I’ll have to think about that. How about, “Dude! It’s Freaking Cold!” You think that’d fly? 😉
Anyway. I’m glad it’s Friday! And I’m ready for some downtime this weekend. I’m going to get it one way or another. I promised myself.
Happy Friday, y’all!
