Came home from work and someone weed whacked my wall of plants and wildflowers in the front yard. Obviously intentional as it was a minimum of four feet tall, and one plant had a stem 2 inches in diameter. I am sooooooo pizzed!!!!!!!

Went to do my 2 miles at the gym. Been back there for a week now. But at half a mile I had to stop, my chest was tight and I knew my lupus was playing up. Cursed the entire way back to the house, until my Sam told me I can't be upset about it.

Being upset about something I live with on a daily basis is a waste of time, still...

I was hoping to be done with germs, but my son has woken up with a sore throat etc. Looks like another day at home.

That's to bad, Marg. :( Hope your son is feeling better soon and that you don't come down with it.

I am opening windows at home to try and blow it through, but so far it is not working. We have had it in the house for nearly a month.

I am now coughing so much I am only just stopping mysellf from vomiting. Not good when out.



Pat , hope your feeling better soon, too.

Well my 'Worst Thing Today' hasn't happened, yet, but it will be the arrival of Gustav.

I have a similar situation. It is also my last day of vacation and I am going back to school tomorrow, but the kids don't come until Wednesday and I am also working with a new grade that I am not crazy about. I had taught 6th grade language arts literacy and now I am teaching 8th grade language arts literacy. 6th graders and 8th graders are quite different animals, so I am a bit nervous. Good news (which I'll put here) is that after working in a school built in the 1920s with no air conditioning and no parking, I am going to a brand new school with air conditioning and an underground parking garage!
