Today is a rough, rough, day, Dear Listener. We’ve not had power at our house since 11:05p last night. I’ve gone over the need of the CPAP, so I can assure you that I didn’t get any sleep last night. I was already dogged tired when I got home at about 11:20p. I’ve been up since 7:25a this morning (I dozed in and out all night and my throat is sore from all the snoring and gasping). I took Ma Mere to get Ma Pere’s meds and then she, along with my oldest nephew went to breakfast.
I came to Downtown WSNC to get busy on the work project I’ve been working on, but the person I needed to see wasn’t there. There was a meeting of the SSO4, that I had forgotten about and had to run to Camino to get in that meeting. Then I went back to the first place and finally got to talk to the person I needed but I still haven’t gotten the info that I need. This project is due Tuesday and I’m only about 1/8 of the way finished and there’s nothing I can do about it.
I find out that the power may not be turned back on until 11:45p tomorrow night! So, since 3B has work to do and we need showers that aren’t ice cold, we may have to spend the night in a hotel. That on top of we just grocery shopped and spent all of our budget on groceries, it’s quite sad that we may lose what we just purchased. That sucks! Money is quite tight right now and this is not what we need.
I don’t get paid for the job I’m doing until it’s done and it looks like I’ll be in here tomorrow (which is normal), Saturday and possibly some on Sunday (when I’m not at other commitments). Rough, I say. But, you know what I wouldn’t trade any of that, really.
All of this stacked on top of everything else going on in life, this day is quite crappy. But, I’ll be fine. That’s all I’ve got today, though. I apologize.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
