I kept telling myself "this sucks... I have all this crap to do and I'm dead ass exhausted and then I have the week from hell coming up". Then I thought to myself... life isn't all that bad. My cat hasn't been sick for at least 3 days, my income taxes look good this year (thanks M.M.) and I have a pretty healthy family that loves one another.
So all this made me get my butt in gear and it ended up that not only did I get everything done, but I was able to get 3 hours of hard core volleyball in. That's my favorite thing to do with friends, especially when there's a cool breeze on an 85 degree day. Sometimes I wish that I lived up north and other times I couldn't imagine being locked in a house trying to stay warm for 5 months out of the year. I hope all my friends in the north are staying warm. You always have a place to stay down here when you can't take the cold any longer. :-)
