Day 85: Murphy's Law

Submitted by BaylorBlondie on Thu, 07/20/2006 - 3:34pm.

The past few days have been even crazier than the week before.  Last week, my mom returned from Europe only to find that a few rooms in their house had flooded- carpets/baseboards gone, furniture/files/clothes everywhere, and drywall must be replaced.  Luckily my brother found it after a few hours so they were able to turn the water off before more damage occured.  This week, I have been slammed at work which again has resulted in working like crazy while forgetting to eat.  My one saving grace is that I am drinking water the entire time which helps with any cravings. 

On top of all the stress at work, my grandmother was admitted to the hospital for heart problems last night.  My mom was originally scheduled to fly out to see my grandma next week, but I had to help her change her flight to 5:30am this morning.  I have had 90 minutes of sleep today since I drove her to the airport.  Also, my dad is also out of town on business this entire week and has bad cell coverage.  Instead of going home after work today and crashing, I have a going away party for one of my co-workers all night that I don’t want to miss.  I just realized that I have only had one handful of Goldfish all day.  Wow.  When it rains, it pours.  I hope I can catch up on some sleep this weekend, but it’s doubtful since we’re going out of town.
