I need some Geritol...or maybe a nap would help.

We ended up taking a customer to the airport at 5pm yesterday, then headed home from Albuquerque. Yup, craziness.

I drove the entire way, since MLH needed to leave at 5 am this morning for a job. We got in at 12:30 am this morning. And then...I couldn't sleep. I guess I drank too much caffeine.

I get to the office this morning, and find out I'm leaving for Houston at 4pm today for an overnight trip. I have called and re-engaged the housesitter for Zack the Wonder Dog, and notified MLH of the change of plans.

And I have a lunchtime Assn of Drilling Engineers meeting to help facilitate, with around 100 rsvp'd.

So hear this...(the sound of exhaustion and quiet frustration as I smile and carry on about my day.)

aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

To quote my wife "No rest for the weary". You should slow down but you can't.

Rachel, I know, huh?

Jeff - I need, desperately, a day off...but this trip is about a 2.1 million $$$ problem and they think I can help.

Bob - I'm trying, really.

Sandy - it may be sooner than later.

I'm tired, heading to bed. A strange one. In a Hampton. In Post Oak in Houston. Yeeehaw!

Oh, I know those sounds well. Too well lately. About all one can do is grin and bear it, keep on plodding, and keep telling yourself that this too shall pass...

And then cuss and have another drink...

"Assn of Drilling Engineers" paints a mental picture I'd just as soon not have. ;-)

Cherie - thanks, girlfriend! I needed that~and once again, I can't get the song out of my mind. But your comment brought a welcome giggle this morning at our 7:15 am breakfast!

Winston - though still tired, I'm lots better today, and we got the $2.1 cut in half. Woohoo! Now that's cause for a drink (except I don't - I always get to be the DD.)

Eric - Okay, I get it! And it is funny! We need Norm to do a cartoon on that one! Thanks for a second laugh of the day!
