I clicked on "New Post." Then my brain locked up. I'm sooooo tired. I was hoping to leave work during the 10 last night -- we were ALL tired from Election coverage ... but there were some issues and I ended up leaving late again.

I had hoped to snooze a bit on the couch this morning after getting Jack on the bus....but then someone called in sick at work...causing a big ripple effect on who would cover what...and that kind of ended that plan.

So now I'm blankly staring at my computer. I think once I tear myself away I will go get under a blanket and read. THE WORLD WILL NOT END IF I TAKE SOME TIME FOR MYSELF AND READ INSTEAD OF FOLDING THE LAUNDRY WAITING IN THE BASKET. I tell myself. But then I think, the longer it sits in there the more wrinkly it gets. No, I'm gonna read. Darn it. TIME FOR MYSELF IS OK.


But not without laying out THE FIVE:
1. Cold.
2. Tired.
3. Amused. Nick is being funny.
4. Concerned. He has a big blow up spiderman chair, and he just told me "The air blew out of my chair." That can't be good.
5. Ready to go read for a bit....

Just throw it back in the dryer with a damp towel that will take the wrinkles out. I do it all the time!

I think you need a vacation day.

Not that it will help, but I'm exhausted and cold and grumpy here too. I'm feeling your pain.

LOVE that you put that pic up :) I miss seeing my favorite friends. :(
