I am grateful to have a job I am grateful to have a job I am ...

Squirming through a School Board meeting that lasted until 11:30 p.m. last night, only to have to be back at my desk bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 7:45 the next morning ... and more meetings and more meetings today and then some big hoopla event in which I have to participate on Saturday -- Saturday -- I must remember, I must be so very grateful to have a job, even if it kills me.

I took my pillow with me to work today, thinking I might slip in a nap during lunch. The custodian saw it in the corner of my office and smiled.

Only about 25 more years until I can retire. By which time, of course, my partially hydrogenated childhood, my love of sausage, eggs and cheese and the high blood pressure that runs in my family will probably send the Grim Reaper to spoil my long-awaited fun.

Kat:
Oh, Kat, Kat, Kat, how could You do this to me? I have a garden to plant, a weighty tome of 800 pages to finish reading by this Friday, a world of wonderful blogfriends to visit ... I need to hire a personal stunt double.

Maria: A gift, yes, I must remember that. Beats putting up roofing shingles, guarding death row inmates or processing sewage.

LGS: Rub it in, rub it in. By the way, FLOW thanks you for the award and I will paste it up soon.
