My father is in the ICU, my mother is in meltdown, I got home from Ft. Lauderdale at 8:30 last night and will be in the office at 7:45 this morning. Then I'm leaving early and going to the gym. And turning off my phone. Somehow, in the midst of all of this, I need to finish the touch-up painting and unload three closets, the carpet install is scheduled for the 17th, if a parental medical crisis doesn't force another postponement. More on that later.
Thanks to this link from Eric Alterman on MSNBC, we have strong evidence from credible Christian pollsters that "Christians Aren't Perfect, Just Smug Hypocrites!"

I did knit two entire rows on the laptop sweater yesterday. I intend to knit a great deal tonight. Knitting, meditation, and exercise is all that's keeping me going right now. Oh, and a couple of glasses of wine don't hurt.
Off to get ready for work....
