I'm at work by myself today. The boss is interstate. I rode my scooter here for the first time, arrived late thanks to peak hour traffic, and then I had to make a trip to the ATM before I could afford a cup of tea. I suddenly feel exhausted. It's not yet 10am, and I feel utterly defeated. It all seems too much. Maybe I'll feel better after my tea, but right now I just can't seem to motivate myself to do anything. There just seems so much. I have to pick out orders, invoice them, call a bunch of people about overdue accounts. I also have to do something with tickets for three concerts that Aidan and I had planned on going to. I only want to go to one of them, so I have to find people who want one ticket to Bad Religion, two to Muse, and one to Machine Head. It all just seems so much to do, so much effort, when all I want to do is sleep for a year. I have to pull myself out of this self-indulgent wallowing. Anybody want to hear a joke? What's squishy and red and blue and has twenty tentacles? I don't know, but it's crawling up your back!

I think you're perfectly entitled to wallow.

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed today too. Too much to do, too little energy.

Hi Stace,
I'm crying just through reading your blogs.
You scalper you. There must be a place to advertise sales of tickets at normal or below normal price. Or you could just ask people at work. Dad might like that head thing, but I can not think of anyone else.

You are driving in a car at a constant speed. On your left side is a 'drop off', (The ground is 18-20 inches below the level you are traveling on), and on your right side is a fire engine traveling at the same speed as you. In front of you is a galloping horse, which is the same size as your car and
you cannot overtake it. Behind you is a galloping zebra. Both the horse and zebra are also traveling at the same speed as you. What must you do to
safely get out of this highly dangerous situation?

* Get your drunk-ass off the merry-go-round. *

Don't cry, Andrew! Well, you can if you like, but I'm sorry if it's my fault! Tea would be nice. Perhaps tomorrow afternoon? (Tuesday). Anywho, I'll SMS you later.

Menchie, thanks for your permission to wallow :) However having permission cheered me up a little so now I don't need to! hehe

Oh Stace, you will be okay, I swear you will. My other half used to go away for long periods of time when we were just a couple, that was with the Army. I used the time to go catch up with people, to watch videos (note, I said videos not DVDS, lol) and read some great books. Busy yourself and the time will fly.
Re the tickets to the concerts..sell them on ebay? Just a thought :)
