The stress of the holidays followed by the inevitable crash has my sleep a bit messed up. I aimlessly perused the web. Boring. Thought about chat. Equally boring. I need something to do. I will blog.

I'm so accustomed to being busy all the time that when I have a few days to myself, I don't know what to do. I only work 2 1/2 days this coming week and only worked 2 1/2 this past week. That is simply too much time. It leaves far too much opportunity for me to get into trouble.

I went out with my sister and her husband last night to listen to a band. The sound was overwhelming and I soon figured out the reason for the overly loud music was to drown out the singer's marginal vocals. At one point, the sister's bf begins chuckling and says "oh yeah, it's gonna be a great night." My sister follows that sentiment with "uhm....don't turn around. The Ex is here." Oh goodie. An uncomfortable evening. Just what I was hoping for. Not so much.

He pranced around and did his best to appear desirable and popular. He failed. Idiot......I KNOW you. I lived with you. You are fooling no one but yourself. That may sound mean but you'd have to know the complete history to understand. Lucky for you it's 1:40 a.m and I am far too lazy to do that much typing. I'll sum it up by saying the entire world wants to know just what the hell was I thinking giving him the time of day. My only answer is that I'm gullible and soft hearted. Oh yes, and I think I can fix people. Thought I could fix people. I'm over that now. At least I pray that I'm finished with that.

New Year's Eve is quickly approaching and I am frantically searching for flight deals so I can get out of dodge and not endure a pointless night out in this town. Las Vegas appears to be the only option. I may end up calling the thousands of travel agents I have access to and begging for something else.....anything. A warm beach perhaps. A quiet, warm beach. I feel myself relaxing just thinking about it.

Ok. I'm going to give sleep another chance. If anyone knows of a hot deal out of town, let me know.
