A momentary quiet in the circus

Wow. I have 3 hours where I don't have to do anything.
I'm going to enjoy it.

I've been going non-stop this last week, and will continue to
do so for the foreseeable future.

Lets see, work was nuts - preparing for a customer visit and having
them come for 2 days. Loooong days of work, lunches and dinners
and meetings around the visit. Stressful (and fun too), but I'm
totally wiped.

I was having asthma and allergy attacks all week due to the
ragweed, so I didn't get a lot of sleep. I was a little
worried on Thursday, because my heart kept skipping beats and I
was feeling a bit faint and lightheaded. I think it was all the
stress and allergies.

Our street finally got finished on Thursday (this had been going
on for over a year). My handyman finally finished up my garage
floor and sidewalk on Friday. There was preparing all week for
the big Tiki party we are throwing today.

We have it all set up this morning, and now I can rest for a few
hours until the guests start showing up. That will go late into
the night.

Then tomorrow is party cleanup, and pulling everything away from
the upstairs windows, for the window replacement guys will be here
on Monday and Tuesday.

To say nothing of the frantic work schedule for the next 6 weeks.
Oh yeah, and then I'm supposed to go on a vacation to the east coast
immediately after that. Maybe I need more than 3 hours of doing
nothing.....
