The Horizontal Weekend

In 1980, I owned the Bob Seger album, "Against The Wind". One of my favorite songs from it was "The Horizontal Bop". At a naive 13, I had no idea what Bob was really wanting to do; I, as usual, just loved the music and sang along as if there were no consequences....

This brings us to July 23 and 24, 2005---The Horizontal Weekend.

And no, not for reasons that would bring smiles of ecstasy.....

I slept.

And I slept.

I missed my five year old niece's birthday party at the fire station (yes, the fire station...)

And I slept.

I made it to church Sunday morning.

Then I sat dazed in the recliner for the rest of the day, missing a meeting.

I guess the last several weeks finally took their toll---one (sometimes two) people short at work, working 11-12 hours a day, church on Sunday, trying to find two minutes to remind the kids who I am, etc., etc., etc.

And let's not forget the OCD battle on a daily basis brought to you by "Lack-O-Serotonin"!!

And it's not like I fell asleep one time and woke up 28 hours later. No, we only sleep an hour-ish at a time. Overnights? If I get four hours in a row of sleep, it's breaking news on Fox.

So, I sorta staggered through today, and hope to find the other side tomorrow.

Blah blah, enough of me, blah blah.


"For More Information"

When you call your local florist, mechanic, printer, whoever....don't you want them to magically stick a tube through the phone, connect it to your ear, and then SUCK INFORMATION OUT OF YOUR BRAIN????

Thank you.


In's hot. I hate heat. I hate humidity even more.

Forecast high for tomorrow: 104.
Forecast high for Wednesday: 103.

This ain't flippin' Phoenix!!

I could have slept all day today if I wanted to, but since I have kids, I have to be awake to properly take care of them. But, oh, for just one day of being alone to do anything I want to...Ahhhh!
