Night Driving, Computer Issues, and Busy Season

Yesterday, Kevin turned on his computer to find that it had crapped out.  I imagine it's a virus (again) but I can't whip it this time.  Yet.  LOL  We'll see.  We have the key, if we could find someone with a Windows XP operating system disk.  Most computers do not come with a disk these days.  Now, we're screwed.  I'll keep trying, but my hopes aren't extremely high.

Also, I don't have a ton of time.  We are in full-on busy season.  I have to brag that I took the most calls today.  Well, it only counts the calls that ask for "anyone in customer service."  It doesn't count the calls that ask for you.  Anyway, the school portrait season found me off the phones a lot, so it's great to get in and do my part.  It just sucks that it's dark when I get there, and dark when I leave.

I don't mind driving at night.  I don't mind driving in the rain.  I DETEST driving in the rain at night!  The road glares back at you, the windshield is glarey (not a word? Too bad!) and people ride their brakes non-stop.  I hate it, but I got home without dying, so I guess it's all good.

Now I shall relax and then go to bed.  Yup.  I'm tired.  It was a great weekend, but I think I'm still getting back into the swing of the work week.  LOL

The excitement is killing me.  I have to work tomorrow, and should be sleeping.  Yet, I have friends coming to see me from VERY far away, and knowing they are coming is keeping me awake.

My mind is going 40 different directions, and I keep seeing things that need cleaned.  Mind you, these friends wouldn't mind if it was filthy when they got here, but I don't want them to come in to a mess!  Clean clean clean!

They land in the morning, will meet me at work for lunch, and then they'll come to my house.  They'll enter when nobody is home.  What if???  What if there is dust on the TV stand?  ACK!  Dust it!  What if there are dishes in the sink?  Wash them!

Thanks to Kevin and Monica for helping me and not telling me that I'm crazy (much.)  I simply HAVE to sleep, but I'm not sure how I'll do it.  I'm EXCITED!

My Girls

"Raising teenage girls is like trying to nail Jello to a tree."  No truer words were ever spoken.  *sigh*  Lord, help me.

I think I may have a date with my husband tomorrow.  I hope it's true.  We shall see.  I have to do some work in the morning, and I need a haircut, and we hope to be a bit selfish at some point.

And I'm going to have a couple of new grandkids within the next year, and for that I am thankful.  And old.  Thankful and old.  That's me.

I choose to laugh.  What else are you going to do?  Get depressed?  Nope.  Deal with issues as they pop up, work as much as you can, love your family, and love your life.  I love my life.  Please remind me of this when I'm complaining about something, OK?
