Photos of Chicago

Another small journal entry - really just a bunch of shots I took in Chicago then greyscaled in PSP5 because I like the black and white look. Enjoy.

In other news, I'm feeling much better today. Yesterday evening I thought I might be dying, that my brain my implode, but I woke up this morning with my brain intact, and able to breathe out of my nose for the first time since Wednesday morning. Ahhhh, nice.

Someone Kill Me

Blegh, I'm sick. I managed to catch a cold - probably from someone on one of the several planes I flew on last weekend - and have been home from work yesterday and today. My head feels like it's going to explode. Which would be gross. And uncomfortable.

Anyway, I posted a couple entries about my recent trip to Chicago in my journal before coming down with the Creeping Crud. You can find them here and here. I hope to finish up this weekend when (God willing) I'll be feeling better.

Gah. I'm going back to bed now.

A Pleasant Surprise

Why is it that a work week that's a day short always seems longer than a regular, non-holiday, 5-day work week? Gah! This was one of those weeks; despite having Monday off for Labour Day, it felt like the longest week in history; Friday was forever away. Actually the past two weeks have been pretty bad for me - seriously bad PMS, then one of the worst periods I've had in a couple years at least. I've been so damn tired and cranky, and suffering from one the worst bouts of depression in eons! Not even the miracle Vitamin Z could lift my spirits. I've been crying myself to sleep, hating getting up in the morning, and a few times, I will confess I considered walking away from every-freakin'-thing.

But, I survived. I kept myself in check - I didn't snap at anyone, nor did I bite anyone's head off (even though there were times I really, really wanted to!), I prayed a lot, and made it to Friday in one piece. When I finally arrived home tonight, I was beat. Physically and emotionally exchausted. And, I had a severe headache. So when my mom said she needed my help with something I just growled.

What now? I wondered. Did the toilet break again? Gah.

I almost didn't want to know. But, I dragged myself out to the living room to see what was up. My mood was dark; I just wanted to get into some comfy clothes, grab a glass of wine and just relax. I didn't feel up to dealing with some problem or other. So, imagine my surprise when I walked into the living room and saw this:
