The Full Moon was Last Week

So someone needs to explain why this week has been so off kilter. Work has been unusually stressful and while there have been situations that would account for some of it, most of it is just ambient weirdness that makes MAB and I look at each other with a "What the H?" sort of expression. Yesterday I was in an elevator going to pick up The Child from her orthodontist appointment and I heard two people talking about how crazy and long this week has been, "And it's only Tuesday". I shared this with the receptionist and doc and they agreed. So it's not just me.

Last night, however, we had a fun, relaxing family time. Dinner was ok...the corned beef was perfect but the cabbage was over-cooked, owing to an incident with the soda bread. But it didn't dampen our festivities. And last night I sleep comparatively well so this morning I woke up feeling more chipper than I have had. Perhaps there was just some sort of lunar remnant dorking up neural pathways and maybe it's dissipated so we can get back to normal.

Either way, tomorrow I take off for my madcap Omahan weekend and let me tell you, I'm ready. 3 days of sleeping in and not having to work or fuss with laundry or remind The Child -again- to get her homework done and hanging out with one of my besties doing silly grown-up besties things...bring it on. Mama is way, way ready.

I just have to remember to go on-line at 11am to get my boarding pass.

Well believe it or not its been one of those weeks here to! Things are just not coming together or if they do the pieces aren't fitting properly. Something with time/matter?????

Have a wonderful 3 days in Omaha - enjoy, relax but remember the angels weep if you misbehave!

Willym, it's becoming clear that there is a fissure in the space/time continuum. Someone call engineering.

Poodle is funny.

Wave to him for me, Sage! And I'll give JP a hug for you.

'K, Cuz. I will.

I'm sorry about your headache, Rosie. Get better. Lucky son.

Anonyba, maybe some sort of residual from that...things are certainly markedly improved today so there's that.
