it's just that I'm so tired.

I really, REALLY don't want this blog to revert to its previous whiny, complainy incarnation. But it's just that this week hasn't been my favorite. Remember way back on Monday when I said I haven't been sleeping? I continue not to sleep. I continue to be sick. Oh, and we had this big ice and snow storm yesterday. And another one is coming on Friday. Work is busy. Really, it's work that makes this a busy week, but since I don't talk about work, I really have nothing else to say.

Here is a perfect illustration of my week so far:

This morning, I got up at 5:30 a.m. so I could leave for work at 6:30. I had to be in by 7:15 and I didn't know how the roads would be (because of the aforementioned ice). I rushed around, got ready, got Greg up, Jane up, fed Jane, got her dressed, strongly suggested Greg make coffee, he did, got myself a little to-go cup, grabbed my bag, my keys, my coat, and headed out the door.

It had really warmed up overnight (to about 30 degrees) so the ice wasn't too bad. I was thisclose to my car when - you guessed it - I fell ass over teakettle, spilling coffee everywhere, soaking my dress, tights, boots, gloves...yeah. So I raaaan back inside, changed into an entirely different outfit, checked to make sure my back/neck/head wasn't broken, and rushed out for the day, completely frazzled and cranky. (However, I did make it to work on time. Go me.)

So yeah. That's been the week. Hope yours is better (or at least you're having fewer falls!)

I can empathize. My last few weeks have sucked. It's hard to write when you want to just piss and moan all the time, huh? Ugh

I knew when you typed "thisclose" something was coming & I was cringing for you.

You're scrappy!And I admire you. And now I have to go find a sweater because the snow, the ice, and the spilled coffee all combined to make me shiver.

I'm empathetic like that. ;)

If it makes you feel any better, I tried to shovel the other day and since there was no place to put the snow in the small patch of grass between our townhouse and our neighbor's... I had the brilliant idea of walking the shovelful of snow/ice across the driveway. Needless to say, there was some ass over teakettle action and a lot of snow/ice dumped directly on myself.

Oh man...that ass over teakettle thing is exactly why I moved to warmer climates. I have a sincere admiration/curiosity for people that choose to live in a place that boobytraps every step outside. Hope you had a better week, and keep up the great posts!
