I thought that the full moon occuring on Saturday night (right?) would alleviate some of the craziness of the past week. I mean, Thursday's and Friday's traffic in Nashville was completely nuts - you would have thought everyone on the road only had a learner's permit! :D
So I was hoping for a nice, "holiday week Monday"...meaning not too many on the road and not too many in the office. WRONG! For starters, people not letting me merge...then a horrible smell that made me pull over for fear MY car had something burning (it didn't). Then, some crazed lunatic in a BMW decided that he would drive 90+ MPH in rush hour traffic and swerve in and out of 4 lanes. THAT was exciting to watch...he actually didn't cause or get into an accident.
Then the day began at work...H O L Y M O L Y! It was just one thing after another after another. At 11:30, I said, "I am leaving and WILL be back...but I'm leaving so I do not blow a gasket at someone who doesn't deserve it" and I left the building and went to get my hair trimmed. :) How nice to have my scalp massaged and a little pampering for a few minutes. *SIGH*
Even the guy who works with me said, "You have a smile on your face now!" when I returned. He's such a good kid! :)
And I am VERY EXCITED about spending Thanksgiving with Mom and Dad in Biloxi this year! I really hate it that B will be with his Dad....maybe next year we'll all get together.
Hopefully the tides have turned and things will be smooth sailing for awhile. :)
