I Get Lucky!

Yesterday was a lost day. I spent most of the day in bed with a high fever, and raging headache, and an upset stomach having been overtaken by gastroenteritis somewhere around 3:00 am the night before. With that said, I did manage to do a couple of things. Around 1:30 in the afternoon I dragged my sorry butt out of bed and got showered, and at 2:45, left the house to pick the kids up from school. This is not a minor undertaking, because Garrett gets out at 3:00 and Weston gets out at 3:40, making this about an hour-long process. When I finally got home, I had to sleep for two hours from sheer exhaustion.

Leaving Weston's school yesterday I suddenly realized that the second thing that I had accomplished was losing my wireless ear piece for my phone. I knew approximately where and when I had lost it because I had pulled it out of my ear while walking to my car at Garrett's school. I figured I must have dropped it while opening the car door. Sadly, I wrote it off as lost, smashed, or both, but this morning, a little miracle occurred. Walking Garrett in to school I glanced down at the sidewalk, and there it was, intact and still working! I think while I'm having this kind of luck, I'll go buy some lottery tickets.

Feel better!! Sounds like you are under a serious yuck cloud.
Yay on finding the earbud! I had a strange occurrence like that happen with an earring. Maybe it just needed a little adventure but still wanted to come home.

Hope you're feeling lucky today since some of the news IS good. Check out Margaret Atwood's article in this AM's NY Times. A voice of reason in an unreasonable time.

Margaret Atwood is one of my favorite authors, and I was not aware that she wrote for the NY Times. Her article today is definitely a voice a reason, especially the part about how this financial crisis will give us all "...a chance to re-evaluate our goals and to take stock of our relationship to the living planet from which we derive all our nourishment, and without which debt finally won’t matter." Well said, I say.
