Are we sure that TODAY isn't Friday the 13th? Because it feels like it should be.

Wow. The highs and lows I've had today. I just cannot convey the roller coaster I've been on.

Of course I'm going to try.

Let's see. Got to work on time, in a pretty good mood, filled with the joy of the impending weekend. Within half an hour discovered a MAJOR problem, i.e., yet another setback in this saga that has been stressing me out for the last month. Then had an extremely unprofessional nervous breakdown in the office as this was the Straw That Broke The Camel. Not just its Back, the whole camel. Yep, I totally lost it.

Recovered somewhat, L and I went out to lunch at a place whose quesadillas can't be beat. That was lovely. I made it through the rest of the day with only minor freak outs, although no solution was found to the Major Problem before I left for the day.

I DID leave for the day, which was great, although late again, which was not. Traffic was good though, as was seeing my little girls for about 45 minutes before I left for a girl's night out involving Bunco. Bunco was also a blast, and my team had the highest point value, and I saw the first shooting star that I have seen in Florida on the way back to my car. All wonderful stuff.

Got home, smooched the hubby, and finished tidying up my sheep collection (I collect them because I love them, everybody needs something to collect, and the meaning of Rachel is "Ewe", "Little Lamb" or "Sheep" depending on which name book you read), that had mysteriously gotten partially knocked down, most likely when two small people who like mom's stuff tried to get at it. I was quite pleased with the new arrangement.

Then went to feed my pet rat, Cocoa, whose aquarium is right next to the sheep (due to lack of space), and discovered she wasn't moving. David confirmed that is because she's dead. Not good. At first I thought that this was due to her advanced age, so I wasn't happy about this, but I was kind of like *sniff*, ah, the circle of life and what not. And then I just saw all the blood in her cage. I have no idea what that's about and I'm afraid to investigate as I DO NOT LIKE DEAD BODIES. Of any sort. So here I am telling you about it and waiting for David to finish the Raid he is on and dispose of the body. Like before I throw up.

Because it has been a DAY. And I think they need to stop this roller coaster and let me off. RIGHT NOW!

I'm sorry to hear about your pet rat. I'd be REALLY sorry to hear about how he went.
I hope your night gets better or ends soon.

Aww, poor Cocoa! What a day!
