January 20th, 2006



I’ve been quiet this week because I’m tired. For the most part I’ve been trying to do errands right after work and then when I get home I start making dinner then spend the rest of the evening with my husband. I haven’t been able to do any of the writing exercises I’ve had planned.

I don’t know if I’m tired because of the drop in my medicine or if 11:30pm (or later) is just too late for me to go to bed these days. I fell asleep towards the end of the Golden Globes so I didn’t even know Philip Seymour Hoffman won an award until I saw the headline the next day.

Friday Afternoon at Work

One of my employees is not at work today because he had an aneurysm and is in the hospital. Since this morning I’ve found out the prognosis isn’t good. It is in the brain and he was taken to surgery about an hour and a half ago to stop the bleeding. One of the hardest things I’ve had to do is tell the rest of the team about it. I hope I don’t have to tell them the worst has come to pass. That will be even harder and I don’t know if I have the strength for that.
