Symptoms: Stomach pain, headache, insomnia and general pissiness.
Treatment: Read blog comments; laugh and cry; repeat as necessary.
I really have nothing new to say today, except that your comments to me yesterday were exactly what I needed. It was like a Hallmark channel movie - I laughed, I cried. I was moved beyond words.
If anyone needs a laugh, go check out the fabulous advice given to me in yesterday's comment section. Or, if anyone needs proof that the people in blogland are the kindest, most supportive bunch of people in the world, check out the comments.
I think I just may take some of the advice (booze and/or chocolate are the frontrunners, as far as I'm concerned) and will definitely soak up the support. Knowing people will be there, whatever Friday holds, is extremely comforting.
Fortunately, I'm teaching a workshop today, so I'll be distracted for several hours. When I get home, I'll fix myself a stiff drink or a mug of hot chocolate and blog-surf. That ought to get me through one more day.
Only three days left.
