Auntie Em! Auntie Em!...

     Once again, my life has taken on a fiendish, swirling pace and I am finding myself yelling out for Toto!  As I wrote yesterday, I am also begrudgingly beginning to feel a strange return of probable MS symptoms (you know what "they" say...too much of a good thing?!?) just as my life is kicking up the pace a few notches.  I found myself tonight (at work) having a near melt down because I couldn't locate an envelope that was pre-stamped to mail a subpoena...this is NOT my usual response to inconveniences!

     I have been putting in some long hours at work and this pace will only intensify next week through the second week of April.  Myself and another coworker have quite ignorantly agreed to take on a major training project at my employment, which will require many "extra" hours of being at work for our dog and pony show (what WERE we thinking, T???).  Add to that several meetings, doctor's appointments, and spring time get togethers with some friends, and I may have created the perfect storm!  Oh, and I shouldn't leave out my recent bout of insomnia either...LOL

     I figure if I can manage to live through the next 6 weeks with only minor cuts and bruises to my body and psyche, I will have made a major accomplishment...now if I can just avoid those flying monkeys and any falling houses, I should be able to follow my yellow brick road to some relief!  After all, I already LIVE in the Emerald City...

Most people would have a meltdown even coping with half of that!    We had a next door neighbour with MS when I was growing up.  Her husband used to treat her real bad and run around on her something awful.  He was not really very nice.  He ended up leaving her eventually for a young dolly bird...joke was on him though...he died of a heart attack a few short years later and his ex wife...well, as far as I know she is still going strong!

I predict a 100% chance of spoon deficit spending ... please  take care to remedy this by choice now rather than by situational predicament later.

(Invoking stern look of consternation now)
