Keeping My Mind Occupied

After a terrible night of sleep on Monday night I was a zombie yesterday, yawning through lunchtime crossword puzzling, and barely staying awake in German class. What a mess.

I got a fairly decent night’s sleep last night an will begin rebuilding my future starting today, most likely in a vastly different way than I had been planning until Monday. Funny how life changes, isn’t it?

This morning my #1 priority is getting my mother’s birthday card into the mail. With her birthday occurring next Wednesday and her demand that she receive her card prior to the actual date it is crucial that I get this done today in order to ensure a timely delivery. Whew, I’m cutting this close.

The rest of my day will be occupying my mind with the thoughts of work. I have a ton of tasks to get done and frankly am looking forward to trying to delve deeply into my code in order to fix some of the problems.

I think tonight I shall relax, do some German homework, try to schedule my vacation flights, and continue to try to get my head on straighter; self-imposed stress has really gotten the better of me lately.

Have a great day friends!

    Why is putting a card in the mail so hard? is it the shopping for it? or finding a stamp? or finding a mailbox?
    I find the shopping part the hardest part to do, but they do sell them at the grocery store – so you can multi-task.

    Looks like Friday early evening will be a Tasty China night – Allan will be home in the afternoon, so Steve (& Debbie) can get to our house whenever. If you get bored, you can go tour TJ & Mary’s place across the street. They should be there, and may join us for dinner. I will be home a little after 5pm. We can eat there (with no alcoholic beverages) or get it to go & have cocktails at home.

    TC Friday!! I’m excited. And I’d love to take a tour of TJ and Mary’s new abode.

    Did they ever sell the house in Roswell?

    There was finally some suffering last night, as well as delicious chicken tacos while we watched the Westminster Dog show. We have great fun kibitzing on the dogs. One was sure he could get treats out of the handlers pocket while they did the walk for the judge. It was too funny. A German shorthair pointer was best in show, not that we stayed up late. The Great Dane didn’t make the cut, so no need to stay up late.

    No, they can’t sell the Roswell house until this one is done – where would they put all their stuff?

  4. It’s not hard to do, it’s hard for me to remember to do it. But it’s done, fingers crossed.

    Dangen, I always forget about the Westminster show. I used to really enjoy watching it. Oh wait, I’m a cord-cutter, I couldn’t have watched it.

    Wish I could join TC on Friday but I’ve purchase a ticket for the Dinner Lab dinner.

    Woah! Your blog rejected my comment. 🙁 Probably because it was a smartass one about how to mail a letter.

    DANG STACY – what did you say? LOL

  7. Stacy says:

    LOL Barb! Just something about how there’s this do-hickey thing on the side of his mailbox called a flag and if he puts it up? The postman actually TAKES the mail instead of leaving it…. 😉

    Maybe you’re commenting from the work email and it isn’t approved? I can’t imagine you said anything rude!

  9. Weird! I have no answer as to why your comment would be blocked. At first I thought that you included a URL, in which case I would have to approve the comment (this prevents a lot of comment spam).

    If I mail something from work the mail seems to get delivered much faster than if I let the East Atlanta carrier pick it up.
