I thought I'd open a thread the opposite to the 'What made you smile today' thread.

My daughter's just left to drive back to Toronto...she's taken my dogs with her and the house is so quiet now.

Me too.

I was trying to keep a happy face on yesterday but to be honest seeing M in so much pain and then thinking what could have happened has completley thrown me for a loop today.

Then last night as we were laying in bed I heard a huge thudding noise outside, I went to investigate and when I turned the flood lights on around the back patio I could see the remains of a huge snake sticking out of the top of the AC unit. I don't quite know where it had come from, roof? tree? maybe but it had slipped in the grooves on the top and the fan was cutting it up. It freaked me out This morning there are still parts of it everywhere

And it's fathers day, I have so many wonderful memories of my dad but even after losing him 31 years ago I still want to hug him Oh God...I need a drink

Awww...it sounds like you're suffering from delayed shock SM. It could have been so much worse...hopefully M won't need surgery and will be back on the mend in no time.

Our house needed painting outside...not a lot of work because it's mostly metal trim. My husband wanted to get the ladders out and do it himself. There was no way I was going to let him do it...our house is 3 levels high at the back...a long way to fall.

Put your feet up and have that much deserved drink.

In fact after losing my dad and my FIL this year...move over I'll join you.

You can all have a drink on me.

My OH has been in Russia since the 16th. Was supposed to come home this weekend but didn't. Said it would be probably be Monday or Tuesday.
He rang last night to say he won't be back until Friday.

I knew I was losing it ................ OH has been in Russia since Tuesday the
9th and not Tuesday the 16th.

I just saw today's date on the calendar and thought "hang on - he's been gone longer than 5 days - it's been 2 weekends now already."

I've been working almost non-stop on a long translation and avoiding alcohol but now I've finally finished it so I need more wine to kick start my brain again.
