Not my day today. Difficult meeting at work. (Resolved.) Difficult phone call from the the_child. (Parenting 101.) Discovered I lost my main travelling credit card. (Called and cancelled, no fraud in progress.) All in a span of about three hours.

Good thing I wrote this morning, because even I wouldn’t have the discipline to bang out two hours’ work in my current frame of mind. Still, I’m calling today the moral equivalent of a Monday.

Oh, and flying home tomorrow.

Boo! Wasn't my day either. I don't think I've been so sick in many years as I was for most of this morning.

Yay for going home...and for getting writing done!

This sentence here succinctly explains why some people are writers and some people aren't.
(OK, not really. But I like it!)

Commiserations. Bad things come in threes, as all superstitious people know, so um er...
