It’s such a Monday.

You know you’re going to have a great day when you’re driving down the road thinking that those new contacts you just put in feel really dry — and one of them falls out of your eye into your hand. And you’re not legal to drive without them. And you’ve got no contact solution or drops. And you’re still 7 miles from work.

Somehow I managd to convince it to stick to my eyeball until I could get to the Wawa and pick up some generic contact solution. In addition, I managed to do so without hitting anything. Granted, I ended up late for work… ah, such a Monday this is.


Yesterday, I was fine. We went to Penn Raceway with my folks and my brother and played the horse rases. It was awesome, and definitely something I’d be willing to do again. Somehow there’s something just much more interesting about it than playing the slots down in Atlantic City.

After that, we went back to my parents’ house and ate sandwiches and pizza and the like, hung out for a little while and came home. No problems there.

Went to bed at a decent hour (well, relatively decent) but I couldn’t sleep – I’d sleep for 15 or 20 minutes then wake up. And I was hot and I was cold and I was hot again and I was pretty nauseous and it was a pain in the tail because I was supposed to go in early this morning because we’re so far behind in our work.

And when I woke up this morning I discovered that overnight my body had converted to a snot factory. I’m stuffed up and my head is just throbbing and my eyes are watering and my throat’s sore. I’m betting it’s a summer cold (since I haven’t had mine this year). I just wish I’d’ve seen it coming. I’d’ve done something about it yesterday.

So it’s almost 10:30 and I got some more spotty sleep between 7 and now and I’m drinking water and probably going back to sleep.
