Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Hanging In There

     (I hope you are, too.)

Ever have that feeling?

     Maybe it's getting over the flu. Any energy dissipates quickly.

     Maybe it's finishing several jobs. (And having more to do.)

     Maybe it's our crazy weather. Up, down -- snow/none, warm/absolutely icicles. Bare ground, accented with lovely gray snowcrusts -- and an icy driveway. We're due for more snow early this week.

     Maybe it's a night or two of very little sleep. The Brick's hip has been acting up, and the poor guy was having trouble walking or getting comfortable. It's much better today (whew), but he spent the night thrashing around. Which meant I got about zippo sleep, too. Just before...

      a day I had to take care of my dogsitting responsibilities, get the car cleaned off...
               and still get to Worship Team practice at the crazy hour of 7:30 a.m. 

Think I'll make it to bed early. Tomorrow's bound to be better. As Frugal Mom in Boise points out, better to take it one day at a time.

A snowplow's forced off the road in Utah -- and heads 300 feet down the cliff. (The driver survived. Wow.)

Have a great week.
