Zzzz...

OK. So this won't be a long post. I'm flippin' tired (not much sleep here lately), I've been working my ass off all day (in more ways than one), and I'm so sick of drama that I could beat my head against a brick wall. Seriously, are there any normal people out there?

I will say that one good thing the drama has brought on is that I've been hearing from people I haven't heard from in forever. People I missed. People I wondered about and what they've been doing in their lives. You know who you are. ;) It's been good talking to you again. :)

But the bottom line is that I need a fucking break. Work has been nuts. Yes, I work from home and that means luxuries that others don't have. But it ALSO means that I have to find time to work. And so I've been up until ungodly hours of the night the past week or so to meet deadlines. And that, my friends, blows.

Tomorrow I'll tell you about my dinner adventure. Dear god. I started out cooking shrimp scampi. And I mean literally started cooking it and was almost done. But then all hell broke loose and I had to improvise and I changed a friend's recipe a bit and made shrimp fried noodles instead. Shrimp fried linguine? Yeah. Whatever. I made it up and it didn't taste half bad, so...

I gave my flute away over the weekend. I haven't played it in years and a little girl was starting to take lessons, so I spread the love. But now I kind of regret it because it's my flute, ya know? I didn't play it anymore, but it was here and now it's not. [sigh] I really need to think before I speak sometimes.

Shit. I just nodded off while sitting here. I guess it's time for bed, huh? Deadlines be damned (mine is like, um, right now). I'm too tired to be productive. So just bite me bosses. ;)

More tomorrow. I've been guilted (not intentionally) to start my little Daily Update gig again, so maybe I'll give it a whirl. But I refuse to make promises. LOL! ;)

I gave away my clarinet a few years ago, and felt badly about it too. I never played it, even forgot how to play it, but it was mine. Now, it's gone. :( Haha!

I didn't know you played the flute. My mom used to play the flute. She had one but when I was a kid I used to pretend it was my cane and I bent it.

I know what you mean about having to find the time to work at home. Last night I was copy editing while the noodles boiled.

I still have my old flute laying around too. Alexis had the choice to take band this year, but she chose choir. I'm still hoping one of the girls will use it someday.

(((((((Alien)))))))) I haven't played the piano in years, but will never get rid of it. I'm hoping one of the kids will play. Make sure your friend knows that if DD quits the flute, you want it back!! LOL

The problem with working from home is that you never get to leave work behind. *Sigh*

I hope this weekend brings you some much needed sleep and relaxation. :)
