The Convenience of My Solitude....

Well I've been hiding out for a few days now. I'm working all alone at the po-po station tonight. It's snowing, and I predict a lot of accidents. Staying up all night sucks when you are well, but when you're sick, it's horrible. I have been sick for days. Not so much sick as every ounce of being has been sucked from my bones, and I'm just floating around in my skin. I've got sone head and chest congestion, sore throat, cough, but that's not what the worst of it is. It's the being tired. I've slept from 6pm til 7 am for days. Days I tell you! I'm still tired!

Here it is Saturday and I'm thinking the midnight shift at the police station will be cake this time because I am off the wknd from the full time job. Well, today I had to work the full time job. See, God decided to go all Armegedon on the east coast and snow us all in. Granted, my storm was not as bad as it was in New York, but I don't remember the last time I was called off work due to the snow. I didn't call off...I was called off.

Tuesday it snowed so much they let us leave work early, I left at 3:30 and I got home at 5. It's a 20-25 minute drive. It snowed so fast that the trucks couldn't keep the roads plowed. It was a long slow trip, but I made it with only sliding a couple of times. Thank God for second gear. It's only my best friend.

There was no way we could get up our driveway even though we all called and left msgs for the landlord. We had to park at the church down the road and tredge through knee deep snow to the house. I had decided, no way I was going to work, it'd take me forever to dig out let alone drive to work. Then my boss called me and told me to stay home. It was extra awesome, because I was sick as hell and I slept all day.

Around 4 me and CP braved the snow to dig our cars out. The snow was up to the door with drifts. My dog couldn't go to the bathroom it was so deep, Tayray had to shovel Billy a spot to poo and pee in! Tayrays friend ended up coming to plow our driveway, and we got up and safely into our toasty garages.

I've been having strange hallucinations. So strange that I can't even describe them except that their images that flash into my head that seem to make no sense but make me feel at peace about my childhood. Is that weird or what? I told you I'm freaking sick!!

So, since I'm an hourly employee now, I don't get paid for being off on Wednesday, and I had to go make it up today if I wanted to be paid. It ended up being awesome, cus we didn't have to answer the ringing phones all day long. I got so much work done! We're having a huge district manager's meeting next week, and each of our VP's has sub meetings that we have to coordinate, and awards to make. And they did a big re-alignment which is a pain.

Well, remember a while back I was talking about the secret? And how I visualized myself into a job, and some action, and money? Seriously, now that shit was on Oprah. I told you it's real. You should seriously look into it!

There's an awesome party next Tuesday that I can' t wait to describe.

Seems like things are really turning around for you! I really believe in visualization as well. I can't tell you how many times I've used it.

By the way, what's snow again? I forget. It was in the 80s this weekend. I got a very dark tan!

So when do we get to hear about this party? It was tonight, right? 80s themed perhaps?!:)

I couldn't even imagine having so much snow that I'd have to clear a spot for the doggie to pee & poo!! Are you kidding me?!?
