First Robin Of Winter
Grrr... YESTERDAY was supposed to be a marathon day, but not today. Yeesh.
Took Youngest Daughter to Globe to her uncle's house. Drove from there back to the Phoenix metro area, debating whether to come on back to Tucson for the night or spend the night at sister's house.
Youngest Daughter called just as I pulled into town, announcing tearfully that she couldn't stay there and simply had to have a ride back. I will admit to a brief flirtation - with the idea of killing her. It passed. Painfully, I might add. But I drove up this morning to pick her up - and in the interim, PITA client called with a question. Since I was already in the neighborhood, I just stopped to show how to configure their email.
With all that happened, it was about 5:30 this evening before I finally got home. It would've been earlier but on top of everything else, there were a record-breaking number of road closures due to traffic accidents today, including one that was pretty close to home. I had the radio on, listening to traffic reports (in this case the literal kind, not the commercials!) Otherwise it probably would've taken me that much longer to get home.
Dinner was done when I got here - the nice aspect of having two cooks in the house!
Gotta go back tomorrow to fill out yet more paperwork for the new job. MC will probably ride with me tomorrow just so we can do a bit more exploring. Plus, I want to get him out of the house while I can. Once I start working we won't be doing as much running around.
However, for the moment my head is pounding. I gotta get offline and call it a night. Might read, depending on whether or not my headache lets up. Though at the moment, MC is watching an interview with Robin Williams. It's one of the more interesting interviews you'll see, needless to say.
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
