Anyone get the license number of that truck?

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

I've been hit by the crud. Again.

My problem is that I try to do too much in too little time. I get stressed. OTOH, some of the stress-inducing events are out of my hands, such as a relative landing in the hospital. That sort of things just adds to an already crowded docket, but I have to deal with them.

I ended up ordering a set of macro filters the other night. They may arrive as early as tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to being able to do macro photography again.

Really, I just want to spend today doing a whole lot of nothing. I even slept in an hour, for all the good it did. As part of my planned relaxation I'll peruse the new IKEA catalog. It may lead to a shopping expedition, I know. I'm trying to convince Chris to do some things in his room before school starts. As if that's really going to happen. The alternative is that I get in his room AFTER school starts and he has no say in it. I hate to treat a kid his age like that, but the ant issue has forced my hand.

Ah, yes: The ant issue. It was just plain ants, but I really think that if he didn't keep such a pig sty that there wouldn't have been a major problem in the first place.

Spent yesterday afternoon running errands for the afore-mentioned relative. She's back home, but there are things she needs.

I'll try and find an intersting picture for later, but now I'm just not up to doing a lot. Don't forget that Feline Friday will be here tomorrow.
