Well, Monday turned out to be a much better day than Sunday. I would imagine it was because I was finally released
from the modem tethering me to my keyboard. You'll be happy to know I finished all of the work that was needed
from me and I can take a break this evening.

What a morning I had. I got up with plenty of time to spare and then had one small mishap after another.

purse to put it in there, guess what I find.

I was twenty minutes late for work. Not that I care. That's just the way I am.
I am grateful to be taking a break today. I have two movies I am going to watch tonight and a book I am going to
ready while soaking in a hot tub.
Oh, I did write something new for you all to read. There's a program on PBS that I might possibly sell my soul
to appear on. It's called: The
See you on Wednesday!
