HNT is MIA and A Brief Sign Off

It's been one of those weeks. Probably one of the worst couple of days at work since I started there last year. Working in the social services/mental health field can make for some surprises.
To name just two yesterday: a patient being stabbed and now in critical condition in the ICU of the local trauma center and a victimized female patient being prostituted and beat up by her 'boyfriend' now in a battered woman's shelter.
It can take a lot of you.
I didn't even think about HNT until after 11:00 last night and said 'screw it'.
Sorry folks.

I think I'd be dead without CJ who had a comfort food made for dinner when I walked through the door: turkey,mashed potatoes, gravy, beans, salad, and milk.
I soaked in a warm tub and he rubbed my feet. The world went away for a little bit.

I am also signing off until next Tuesday. I am going out of town for a Female Family Reunion.
Can you imagine 'No Boys Allowed' where I'm going?
It should be a lot of fun, at least three generations from age 11 to 70. I'm really excited about it.

Of course CJ may be inspired and post something, you never know.

I'll report back next week newly inspired and rested from the stress of work.
Enjoy your weekends everyone.

Enjoy your "Female Family Reunion". We'll see you on the other side.

(sigh) Yes, she left me here all alone for four whole days...
What shall I do, what SHALL I do?

Hmmmm... Now if there were only someone to keep me company and make sure that I didn't get into trouble...

Sorry to hear about you bad week. I thought I had it bad when I get a phone call and the person on the other line tells me that the parts I need for the guitars I build won't be here for a month.
