Slap Happy

Have you ever been so tired that you're slap happy? That's how I am right now. Firstly, the past few days of working, running to the hospital, doing last minute Christmas errands have made it so hectic that when I lay down I pass out immediately. I only sleep for about five hours because my brain knows that I can't waste time on things like sleep. Bad brain.

My Dad is finally home from the hospital. The liver is returning to normal. The infection was so severe that it was the culprit. He is still not feeling well or eating much but he's home and I think that will speed his recovery.

Yesterday was our wonderful office party. It was a real joy. I had to be at work by 9 a.m. I usually go in at 10. We had a live computer lesson on a new program just installed. That was interesting. I then had to leave and run home to feed the pets and allow Duffy out for a break. An hour later I was back on the road picking up ice and coffee for the party and was back in the office. We had a huge spread put on by a caterer. Things were visually appealing and very tasty. We even had a waitress. Gifts were exchanged and we even had a cake for our oldest agent who turns 83 in a few days. I received so many nice things, including gift certificates which I am eager to use.

My son finally got a full time job with benefits. I am so happy about that. Particularly after what I went through on Sunday cleaning his apartment kitchen. The word pig stye just doesn't begin to cover it. I am too tired but that's a story I may soon tell. Not for those of you with weak stomachs though. LOL

I am falling asleep here so time to crawl into my nice warm bed and conk out until 5 or 6 a.m. when the pets or my malfunctioning biological clock wake me. All I can think of is that tomorrow afternoon when I leave work, paycheck in hand, I will have the next three or four days off. YES!!!! Life is good.

Wishing you all peace, joy and love.
