I Get Knocked Down...

I can't believe the weekend is over already. I want more weekend, I want the week to never start, but I want this weekend to end. It's been the longest, short weekend I've had in a while...much more emotionally charged than I would have expected as well...

St Patty's was fun - found a cool new coverband, and learned that I can't stand drunk chicks as lead singers. But then again, I'm somewhat perma-grump right now with this worsening cold so maybe I'm being to hard on her. You see, I hardly ever get genuinely sick so I tend to be pretty pissed off about it when I am. I starting treating this cold pretty early, but the bastard is hanging on strong. Anyway, I wasn't the only one that wanted to strangle her with the mic cord, so I blame her, not the cold.

... it's been a month now since Grandma was killed. I keep finding little reminders of her and more frustrations from my family on how the loose ends are being tied up. The criminal case seems to be moving, but nothing has really happened yet to know how well it is going. It is still hard to believe she is really gone though.

Nickelback's "Savin Me" video was an unexpected reminder of all of it for me though ... for those of you who've seen it, maybe you know what I'm talking about ... people have an invisible countdown above their heads, marking the time until they die. In the video, an elderly woman that appears uninjured is put into an ambulance ... with 11 seconds counting down above her head. I sat there in bed watching, then covered my head and burst into tears.

I tell you, if it isn't a tree or germs knocking me on my ass these days, it's some kind of emotional side tackle I didn't see coming ...

... but I get up again ...
