Blech!

Just in time for the holiday rush my body breaks down. It was probably inevitable, cuz I've been pushing it for a while. And it's entirely soggy, never easy on the joints. Whatever I accomplish today will be a miracle. Tonight is the DRB meeting and I'm thinking by 7 p.m. I'll be too racked up to do anything but go to bed. : p  Meanwhile, the tree calls for further fluffing...

In the news, DC Occupiers built a wooden shelter and were arrested:

Lawyers are fighting for the Occupiers. One statement:
"These are just first amendment activities" said Verheyden-Hilliard "Why are they being treated like criminals? People camp out before a major movie screening or outside stores at Thanksgiving. The difference is that one group of people are engaged in a constitutionally protected and cherished activity. The others want a sale."

If this doesn't bring tears to your eyes, nothing will:

Everything you can do today, can be done tomorrow - when you feel better.

Arleen, you're right. I tried, but it's not worth it to make myself worse for the sake of one day's difference. I should listen, so I am. ;)

More tree fluffing. LOLOL. Feel better.

Some head shaking, eye popping news there.

Austan said...

Boo- the news is always a headshaker these days. In fact, most everything in life is a head-shaker these days!

Maybe as part of your prescription for getting better, you could skip the news for a day or two, and just think happy thoughts. Nah, never mind. You'd probably get withdrawal symptoms after an hour or two. Take care of yourself, though, y'heah?

Austan said...

Susan- I hear. ;) I'm not even looking at the news today. So far.
