WHAT A TUESDAY!
This saying is so true. I found it especially so today. I had to go to the main branch of the library to choose my health insurance. I had put it off thinking I was leaving the beginning of December. Now I had one day to get everything done.
I started out and almost immediately was stuck in traffic that was worse than anything I had seen in a long time. I was literally just sitting there. I had left in plenty of time but it got later and later. I finally called work and told them I would be very late.
What was the problem? A state trooper was shot on the Vine Street expressway. Lots of streets were closed as the police were chasing four suspects. It ended with a fiery crash on Vine Street. I have never seen so many policemen. The link to the story is here.
Then I went around the block twice before I found parking. I went to the kiosk to pay and I couldn't figure out how to use it. I ended up paying $7.50 to park for 3 hours rather than the 30 minutes I was actually there. But that's done now.
The way back to work was hard too. In all I must have spent around an hour just sitting in traffic.
So much is going on in the world right now. Shooting a policeman, bombing, suicide jackets. The world is going crazy!
My movie today was "Hats Off to Christmas" (2013). It was cute even though it was so predictable. I'm glad to be back to my Christmas movies.
I felt so sick to my stomach when I got home at 8:30 tonight. I just laid down and went to sleep instead of making dinner. Joe had a really bad headache so he went to sleep too. I never did make dinner. I woke up a couple of hours later and made myself a baked potato so that I could have something in my stomach to take my medicine. I'm really tired so I am going to end this and get some more sleep. Tomorrow we go in to work early (8:45) but we get out early too. I'm looking forward to that.
