the briefest of updates, all things considered

I’m in week two of the official three-week hell period. Here is what else has happened in the last several days:

  • My car’s transmission failed while I was driving to work.
  • A dog attacked and killed one of the cats at Family HQ while I was there.
  • Jamie’s 17th birthday was Friday. We gave her a car.
  • Sammi was just elected president of her sorority.
  • Ginny has the flu or something.
  • One of the other cats at Family HQ sliced up my hand and I’m convinced I’m going to get MRSA and die.
  • The weather finally finally got chilly.

I think other things happened too.

I worked from 8:45 this morning until after 10 tonight. I don’t even know why I’m not in bed yet. I am completely exhausted, and my contacts have welded themselves to my eyeballs, and my head hurts and my tummy hurts and dear sweet God, I am so so so so so tired. And we still have a lot to do.

I am so tired that a rerun of Everybody Loves Raymond came on TV and I did not immediately dive across the room to turn the channel. This is how you know for sure that I am in a serious state of exhaustion.

I am going to bed now.

  1. You guys are having a busy/crazy week! What kind of car did your sister get?

    I honestly didn’t know a thing about MRSA before your post. I have been living under a rock. It’s true. Also, I got a cut on my thumb after reading your post about MRSA and just knew I was going to get the virus. I told my coworker and my boss overheard. They think I’m crazy.

  2. hey there,

    well i am sorry to hear about your car, maybe you can buy my old car (but then again i would never wish that heap of crap on a friend, an enemy maybe)….

    stop working so hard, and if they complain tell them i told you to, cause i will get just as crazy as the lovely lady from my town, you know the one who should marry the all time soccer player!!!!

  3. Everybody Loves Raymond is on right before ANTM here in STL, and just having to watch the last 2 minutes of it because of my DVR’s safety feature gives me the twitches.

  4. Nobody asked for my vote so I don’t believe everyone loves Raymond, because I’m someone and I don’t. I couldn’t even stand Raymond long enough to make it all the way through an episode…………….But, I did like Raymond as the big Wooly Mammoth.

  5. “Everybody Loves Raymond” is appalling, not least because arch-conservative Patricia Heaton uses it as a vehicle to spread her sinister views.

    Hang in there. Northwestern’s gonna be awesome next year, or so a small bird is telling me. As for now, rejoice in the Cavaliers.

  6. Remember Paul Rudd’s mention of the sitcom in Knocked Up? “Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of Everybody Loves Raymond, only it doesn’t last 22 minutes. It lasts forever.”

    Don’t ask what my point is.

  7. Isn’t blogging publishing?

    I think what Jen’s trying to say is, hey, you’ve been gone a long time. For something “briefest” it’s sure hung around a long time.

    PS: quit yer job.
