This has been “One of Those Days”. Nickled and dimed to death. I hate being pecked at all day. Bad night, bills, taxes (more), car situation, puking, poop/diarrhea, uncooperative machinery, blah, blah, blah. Got the picture? Need I put details? I didn’t think so. Saver of Bugs has been here done that, so she is probably way glad to be at school. Spider Bait at least had the self-preservatory instincts to not put “Look at the Bright Side of Life” from “Spamalot” on his I-Pod. It would not have gone well for him. Instead he brought me a ‘Kiss’ so I could “eat chocolate and think happy thoughts”. I would have smacked him, but he did bring me chocolate. So this will be a hit and run post. Here’s a quote I can relate to today:

In keeping with the mood today, there are currently 2 squirrels beating the crap out of each other on my roof. It sounds like screeching elephants. I keep waiting for one of the little suckers to take a header off the side.
My header today is moss growing in our yard. I laid down on my tummy to get this picture:
So that’s it. The boys are at scouts for at least another hour and I quit. Comfort food, absolutely tea, a show of my choice (a rerun with a happy ending) are all on the menu. I need a couple of hours of mental health time. Bye!
