I hear its contagious, too! I don't want to get any of my coworkers sick. So, I'll take one for the team and sit tomorrow out...

I wish. I'll be here, like a sucker. Have a good Thursday, everyone!
You could have filed it under "Mental Health Day."

My prayers are on the way.

I was going to go to the game, but this is the best weather we are supposed to get for the next few days. So, I'm just going to sit....

Wifey is on her way home....dogs are laying at my feet....and all is right with my world.

Have a happy milestone days....Christmas is coming!!!!
Enjoy your break friend!!!! You may want to do started on that nursery while you have a chance too!!!!

Glad to hear that you are home safe and sound!!!

Her favorite movie was West Side Story, I wrote in a blog post some time ago about my mom, and how I have a lot of emotional scars caused by both my parents and I won't go into it here. I feel a lot of different emotions that race through my mind on 3/13, anger, angst, depression, not much cheer, most of the time I just want to be left alone. I will always love her, but there are somethings time hasn't healed.
