Catching Up (part deux)

ARRRRRGH,
Okay, there... I needed to get crap out of my system. This week started out so nice. I had a couple of unexpected surprises to go my way. I thought that this week would be a good one. So much for that! I had a lousy game with the TV station. I made 3 very glaring errors during a broadcast. Boy was I hacked off about that. I could just feel the migrane wanting to kick in but good. I'm wishing at this point to crawl under a rock. So I do what is not in normal range for me anymore. I go back home and walk down the block to the local watering hole, and toss back a few cold beers. Normally, this would be another non-event in my life except that while tipping my cold ones... I was in conversation with the bartender who was also in another conversation with someone else and the other person mistook my comment to the bartender as a comment directed at them. So I'm on that person's black list. Beautiful... I'm having a banner day as the Labatt's are being tossed down. So, after I had enough to eat and drink, I walk home (all 50 yards) and check my email. I find something that one of my hockey friends sent me and laugh. SO... I sent it to my email address book, figuring in my liquid state, that some others might find it amusing as well. Apparently not, as I got about 3 emails saying it wasn't nice... The bad part is that I vaguely remember what it was about since I deleted it from my computer right after I forwarded it. Ahhhh Life! So to any who reads this and were offended by some dumb email I sent after tossing some beers down, hey, I apologize, okay? Nothing I can do to take it back... I'm just not doing anything right this week. I was trying to compliment a co-worker today and it ended up coming across as a slam. Jeez, I feel like Schlep-rock from the 'Pebbles and Bam-Bam' cartoon. Oh wow-zy, wow-zy, woo-woo... Or like eeyore from 'Winnie the Pooh' ... you get the idea... PITY PARTY!!!
All right, enough about my lame-butt... Got word from Carolyn that Doug is doing a little bit better. The swelling is down and his oxygen levels have improved quite a bit. He still is in ICU at UofM but has been able to open his eyes. Never thought I'd get so excited about something that is so taken for granted. He's still in an unconscious state. He still has a trach in and on a ventilator but his B/P and heart rate are strong. Thank God. I'm glad something is going in the right direction. Carolyn says that they think it will take at least another month for him to turn the corner as they still don't know what the virus is that they are battling... She is whipped and will not leave Doug's bedside. Now that's love... Some friends are thinking of getting together and donating some vacation time to help Carolyn out as she is staying up in Ann Arbor which is about 40 minutes from Toledo...
Tomorrow is a much needed day off... I don't know what I'm doing but I'm going to enjoy myself because otherwise, I think I'm going to go batty... ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH!!!
