Tired. Work was a non-ending series of one thing after another for 10 hours straight, no break and didn't have time to eat. Take that back, early this morning I stopped at Q-trip for a coffee and had a small taquito. That isn't enough food for an entire day's worth of work. Actually, I'm more than just tired, I'm spent, burnt, toasted and fried. I kind of miss those days, though, because days just fly by and having to worry about weight-loss and what I am eating is a moot point - barely eating and expending that much energy keeps you pretty lean and trim, if I do say so myself.

Even when I got home, all was/is not over. The exterminator - a thing I can ill-afford right now but the idea of getting stung by another scorpion is a worse fate than being totally broke - showed up at my house the same time I did. Which sent me into a frenzy of making sure everything is picked up and also cleaning up today's dog dung. Wanted the dirt/sand/rocks to be sprayed, not dog poop.

Umm, so I just finished making pork chops/gravy/mashed potatoes/spinach. Dumped the gravy over everything and I feel SO much better after having eaten something.

There isn't much else - just cause' I've emptied the brain for the most part of all the junk. Just to have some peace. Issues come and go, I need peace in my mind and heart to walk through all of it.

Really, I'm done for this entry, maybe the night. I figure to head to the bedroom early tonight, watch some TV, get drowsy and get (hopefully) a good night's sleep.

Bidding you all the same.



  1. Hi Ben, go look at my entry. If you haven't seen it before you'll be surprised!

  2. No rest for the weary!

  3. Take care of yourself! There's a lot of sickness going around, and being stressed and tired won't help at all. The extreme changes in our weather aren't helping either.

  4. You are one busy guy! Try to get some rest.

  5. Alright, my own blog wouldn't let me post a reply! GAG!!
    What's with JS, folks? I saw it's up - but it's under Wordpress. Gag again. That isn't the JS I know.
    Betty - saw it on Dorries page.

    Shannon: Indeed!

    Bobby: Well, I want no further encounters with them, either!

    Benita: Trying to - but life sometimes takes precedence.

    Saint: Hey, the older you get, the more you realize you GOTTA KEEP MOVIN'! Sometimes it wears me out, but I don't fret it, either.



Today marks day one of my manager's vacation.  I'm hoping to get a couple days off, even 3 if possible, but without asking.  I don&#...
