Another Day

I've been up most of the night hacking away.  Just love it!  Actually, I would love to call off sick today but have some silly 4 hr training program on a system that I've been using since June....LOL...is this the horse following the cart?  But then again, I work for the government.  We've only recently starting using Windows 2000.

Our building is one of those "sick" buildings.  No fresh air; ventilation non-existent; asbestos has finally all been removed (so they tell us), we are all crammed in on top of each other and share and share alike.....including every illness that is going through every family.

So, once again, I have some viral/cold thing.  It's been floating through the stale air for two weeks now and decided to visit me.  Great!  This year there is plenty of flu vaccine.  I never used to get a flu shot but started a few years ago.  It seems to alleviate my viral thingies from turning into strep.  The only problem is I'm supposed to get my flu shot Friday.  Never gonna happen.  If I sound like I have the slightest cough or sniffles; no shot.

It's 4 a.m. now.  I'm trying to stay awake because I leave the house at 5:30.  Won't get home until 7 tonite.  That's the price I pay for having those Wednesdays off.  Now, if I could somehow coordinate my illnesses to fall on my day off, I'd be one step ahead.........I think this would fall under one of those Murphy's Laws.  And, of course, I forgot to buy coffee yesterday.  There was half a scoop in the can so I added it to the "stale" grounds from yesterday.  Yum, yum...nothing like watered down coffee to start the engines.  I swear one of these days I'll get it all together........

Aren't those Precious Moments just so...uh...precious?  LOL  My daughters have a collection of them.  Well, we started it but had to cut back once I became a "single" one.

Later....Have a good one...chris
