Sorry I haven't been responding to comments/posting entries much this week. I have the sinus infection from H - - - and finally gave in to it and stayed home today, which my body was practically begging me to do all week. If you've ever seen the Snickers commercials where irritable people morph into whiny comedians or volatile movie stars (like Joe Pesci) you have some idea of what it's been like for everyone around me this week. Yesterday, someone at work who is obviously oblivious to social cues hounded me the entire day until I nearly shrieked at her to please cease complaining to me. When someone is pasty white, clammy, and eyeing the trash can as a good receptacle in which to heave, it should be apparent that they're not in the best shape to listen to a litany of complaints, etc.
This isn't how I planned to spend the second week of Lent but it is what it is. I will be in touch when I rejoin the human race, hopefully soon. Thanks for your patience and prayers.
