I went to bed at 9:30 last night but you wouldn't know it by my energy level today. I'm dragging, really dragging. It's a short week and today is my last day and all I have to do is get through it. I was too late to eat at home so I'm eating a cereal bar and some milk here at my desk. Not quite the same....
The HR representative didn't like the way the doctor filled out the FMLA forms and I have to call and make another appointment to do them again. The doctor didn't put down a "course of treatment". I think that means she didn't write down that she wrote me a prescription and said to drink plenty of fluids and rest. It boggles the mind that I have to waste the time of a medical professional to write that. And just when I was thinking it was safe to stick my head up out of the trench.....
And because Kate was at the zoo on Tuesday and we were talking about animals, I remembered I have this book of poems by Ogden Nash. So, I'll leave you with a smile.
You get a wife, you get a house.
Eventually you get a mouse.
You get some words regarding mice,
You get a kitty in a trice.
By two AM or thereabout,
The mouse is in, the cat is out.
It dawns upon you in your cot,
The mouse is silent, the cat is not.
Instead of Pussy, says your spouse,
You should have bought another mouse.
The cow is of the bovine ilk;
One end is moo, the other milk.
Whales have calves,
Cats have kittens,
Bears have cubs,
Swans have cygnets,
Seals have puppies,
But guppies just have little guppies.
The Lord in his wisdom made the fly.
And then forgot to tell us why.
--all poems from The Zoo by Ogden Nash.
So, now I'm off to get the day started. I figure the sooner it starts, the sooner it ends. Have a good one!
