Holy moly I finally get a break today and its 5:30. I feel like a molten pool of bubbling excrement because I think my body has changed since this whole Atkins thing worked for me in my 30′s. I’ll stick with it until guys weekend at the lake and then its pretty much wheels up but for now it doesn’t seem to be making me feel as good as it once did. Couple that with the pressure to get things done cranking up a full notch and I am one tasty treat to be around. Luckily all this work has me sequestered into the dungeon when I’m not on the road. Next week I’m gone all week again which is just super. Maggie has been taking a class at the Art Institute of Chicago and I’m heading down on the train tonight to pick her up. Its an all day class for two weeks and evening labs Tuesdays and Thursdays. Today was her first solo run down on the train so I’m just meeting her at the station and riding back because its evening. From no on she will be commuting mostly solo.
I think Katie and her friends might be picking her up the two nights next week in my absence. And then right around the corner Kate will head back to school. I know this because I had to pay the first installment of tuition today. A check that never fails to draw blood. I need to work on my money conjuring because in two years the perfect storm of out-flowing finances will occur. 2 kids in college, our 25th wedding anniversary, and my parents 50th. Craptastic. Why do I think of these things when I’m already on my way to tilt. I might have a defective melon. Time to stop typing before I remember something that will put me into a catatonic state.
