Crawl back in bed and spend the next month with covers over your head.

We just got back from visiting hub’s parents in Houston. Murphy was a sage. Here’s what happened:

– the center stone came loose in my engagement ring. Again.
– My face broke out into zithood, the likes of which has been unseen since high school.
– My hair conditioner was open in my kit and splooged all over my stuff.
– I used the bleaching trays on my teeth for 8 hours instead of the recommended 2, and my teeth feel like bloody nubs.
– I don’t sleep well there to begin with, mainly because they have radically different ideas about comfortable ambient temperature than I do, but to add insult to injury there was a cat in heat outside that sounded like a person being stabbed repeatedly, as well as kids setting off fireworks at all hours and they sounded like gunshots.
– My laptop’s trying to die on me.
– The game I was going to betatest over the weekend wouldn’t install properly.
– I spent a solid 8 hours trying to get my Treo 300 to function as a modem for my laptop, thinking the whole time that it didn’t work when in actuality it did.
– There’s a part of my scar that’s opening back up and it hurts.
– My Treo had to be hard reset before I could sync it with any local computer, meaning I lost all the books and games I had so specially loaded for my trip.
– I bent a fingernail backwards and broke it off.
– The kids have been totally wild and wooly and out of control.
– When we got home I discovered that a friend had sent us a case of Cornish game hens, packed in dry ice, that sat on our doorstep for at least overnight.

Some days it’s not worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.

And to top it off I have to try to find a damned punchbowl somewhere in town on December 23 because I realized that someone’s maid broke mine last year on Christmas Day while washing it, and nobody’s replaced it for me. Yay! I get to spend another $100!

    wow! I think I’ll settle for my weekend where I slept constantly because I didn’t feel well.
