Oh, coffee. Thank the stars.
The kids have had a summer cold the last few days, and I thought, rather smugly I'll admit, that I wouldn't catch it. Well. I had it coming, I guess. Got a little big for my britches with the healthy lifestyle attitude. I've been reduced to a quivering, sniffling, aching pitiful lump on the floor. Wah.
So I do what any smart grown-up does when they get sick. I drink coffee. OJ is for pansies.
I just wanna be better for tomorrow--- the big day!
BIG DAY, PEOPLE.
Finally, finally, finally-- you just have no idea how happy I am about this. Even the fact that I can only breathe through one side of my nose can't steal my joy about King Pen being DONE!!!!!!!! I know I've been a bit draggy lately, freaking out about transitions and all that. Oh, okay, let's admit it- WonderGirl's been a little psycho. You've all been very nice about it-- discreetly looking the other way when I have an "episode"-- you guys are great. (or uncomfortable with psychotic breaks, I can't tell.) But today--- oh today is marvelous. I am high on life, and nyquil. And I'm certain it has nothing to do with a bipolar disorder. (okay, mostly certain.) I am just rejoicing that the last five years culminates in this moment-- that it's finally here. Oh. my. goodness. I may expire from happiness.
Well, I should get to it. Lotsa work to do around here, cold or not. I need to make these stacks of boxes presentable for company tomorrow. I'm thinking I'll do a pyramid. That would be nice.
