Rough, rough day!

Sorry, no picture documentation of today's train wreck...yeah, that would be a good thing! Started at my bedtime when as I went to log off the computer and I saw the news of Ted Kennedy's death. News junkie me just had to turn on CNN to get the 'breaking news". Big mistake of course! Finally dragged myself away to bed at 3:30am. I know that the higher power tried hard to reform me by blessing me with a morning husband and two DAWNING daughters but it's not really working. I went too long single and alone exercising my hard core NIGHT OWL biological hard wiring!!! So picture me at 6:15am when my newly minted school girls appeared bedside ready to start their day....45 minutes BEFORE the scheduled alarm!! Through barely open slits I find it's pouring cats and dogs so.....yes....I dress to drive the spun sugar princesses to school. 5 seconds before we NEED to leave, Mari decides she won't eat the hot lunch offered at school and starts making herself a sandwich. Deep breathe, deep breathe, deep breathe....at least she didn't ask me to do it!!! It was only a matter of seconds for me to be prone on the couch after depositing them at their respective school buildings. FYI, hubby accompanied me thus far. The closet news junkie that is my husband decides he NEEDS to catch up on the Kennedy coverage and on goes the TV. Now we are only days past his brother's death and funeral...emotions are still pretty close to the surface...and I'm IRISH....the Irish have no problem crying...at ANYTHING let alone tributes and eulogies. I'm now a blubbering, sleep deprived mess!!!! In an effort to end the cycle I drag myself down to the salt mine and manage to get a few projects accomplished. I took a short break to check my emails and while rolling my next to relax the muscles it happened. I have migraine induced vertigo! The house swirled around me and the floor refused to stay under my feet. Kiss my breakfast and the rest of my day good bye! Here's to a tilt-o-whirl free Thursday....I hope!

  5. Dang Suzanne, so sorry to hear of this day. Hope the girls have enjoyed their time and we too are totally grieving Ted Kennedy's passing. He's been a total icon to us and it's been such a big loss even though we expected it. As you and I both know from life experience, expecting is so totally different when it becomes reality :-( Hugs my friend, Rhonda
