my today; Caylee’s tomorrow

My vet called this evening to tell me Beau’s blood test results are perfectly normal!  I am soooo relieved!  And, Beau is much happier now that he’s getting twice the amount of food he’d been getting!

That’s the good news!

The not so good news?  My computer just died.  It’s dead as dead can be.  It was very sudden – no warning at all.  I turned it on earlier this evening, and nothing.

I guess the good news is I have to get a new computer!

The bad news?  I have to get a new computer.

I have a laptop to use for the time being…. thankfully!

I’m not sure what brand of computer I’ll get…. I’ve had Dell’s for the past few years.  Before that, I had Sony – which I liked very much.   Dell is okay, but I don’t think I’d go with another one – I haven’t had very good luck with them.

As for my desktop, well, for the last month it has been plagued with the Blue Screen of Death until, finally tonight, it went to sleep!

It would be more interesting if the stupid thing died slowly so I could try to save it – try to resuscitate it.  It just went to sleep and that was the end of it.

I love computers. But, darn it!  Damn it!  I wish I were smarter than they are!

Today

I began a new new-hire class today.  I have six new employees in my class – nice group, too. I’ll be training them all this week until Wednesday of next week.  I have them 7 hours a day… it makes for an exhausting day.

Every now and then, during the day, I get so tired.  I have to be “on stage” all day – running the show.

It’s usually after lunch when the mind-farts begin.  That’s when simple words evade me.   Sometimes, the mind-farts are loonnnng and I tell my students that I’d momentarily gone to the Bahamas.

It’s rough.  My mind goes to the Bahamas but my body is in Hot Freakin-Flash Hell!

Oh, it’s bad.  Hot flashes and chills from a cold room.  I’d like to rip my clothes off and dunk my head in the sink, or the toilet, if there was no sink.

The perspiration rolls down the side of my face.  It’s worse when it rolls down the center of my back.

Clothes are soaking wet.  Face soaking wet.  Mind in the Bahamas.

That’s what it feels like to be 50.

OH MY GOD!  The hot flashes are HELL!

Sometimes I am sure that if I could ring out my clothes, I’d have enough water to also quench my thirst.  Eeeewwwww!

Tomorrow 

Tomorrow would have been Caylee Marie Anthony’s sixth birthday.  She’d be entering the first grade.  She’d be over the moon with excitement, like my niece, Elizabeth is.

We’ll all be thinking of Caylee tomorrow.

I’m saying a prayer for the Anthony’s, too.
