I think Iím starting to snap out of the little funk Iíve been in since last night. God, I get so FRUSTRATED sometimes! I donít like feeling like a nutcase, and I donít like the overwhelming anger and emotion I experience when Iím stressed or frustrated. Alas, my paper is done and ready to turn in. I donít think the school board realizes just what theyíre doing to me!
Ooh, but excitement helps SOOOOO much! I booked our room this morning at the Chambers Hotel in Manhattan! The same hotel we stayed at when we went this past March, only this time - we upgraded. That means King bed, Junior Suite, and the piece de resistance, the imported Japanese soaking tub! Mmm, makes me grin just thinking about it! The trip isnít for another few months, but the anticipation is delicious. Weíre going to have such a fabulous time!
Today Iím having lunch with mah Dada. I was just on the phone with him, this is funny. He told me what time heíd be at my office, and I said, ďCoolio, Mofo.Ē Itís just something I say sometimes. He said, ďexcuse me?Ē And I replied, ďWell, Dad, technically, itís true.Ē Hee hee. Blessed are those who can amuse themselves, and I am quite blessed in this regard.
Iím looking forward to hanging out with Dad during lunch! I havenít had a chance to sit and chat with him since heís been back from Ireland. Tonight I go straight to school from work, so otherwise I wouldnít get to see him until tomorrow evening. He just emailed me a picture of him standing on a blanket of green with the ocean in the background. Sigh. Iím so happy he had such a great trip, and it looks as beautiful as he said it would be from the picture. One day, Iíll have to visit my roots and head to Ireland, Italy & Greece.
I woke up today prepared to bitch and moan, prepared to begrudge every minute. But I just changed my mind. Looks like another good one ahead of me!
