Reader's Digest Weekend and Note to Self

Sick kid # 1. Sick kid # 2. Sick kid # 3. Movies: Tarzan 2, Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl, Radio, War of the Worlds, and Just Like Heaven - nothing great, nothing horrible (that I saw). International Day at their school on Saturday. Sleet. Sleet mixed with snow. Housecleaning. Reading to kids. Up a lot of the night with sick baby girl. More sleet. Sunday school by myself. More housecleaning. Crying and whining. Short naps. Men's Bible Study. Skip AWANAs. Hooked on Phonics. More reading to kids. Finally got around to writing at 10:00 p.m. but called at 1:00 a.m. to watch Awake-Girl again. Sleep at 3:30 a.m. to 7:30. Up for work. Kid's school closed "Due to Weather" rather than President's Day like everyone else's (yet they had International Day in the Sleet - sense? I think not.) At work. No one's here, but a couple of us to move stuff from "The Dungeon."

Dear Electronic Diary,

Does anyone else feel like they're just living through one day with the only goal to get to the next? It's no way to live, and it's depressing as... well...

The goal has to be higher or life just isn't worth the living. It has to be.

Signed,

Searching but don't know the way

Just checking in, brother.

You have no need that any should teach you, but love? That's another story!

Sorry your day is so dark, but thanks for sharing it. I know what it feels like, but you are headed North.

Well, today I actually got to write a good bit more than usual. So things are a little more high-spirited than when I first wrote this. However, there's a lot in my life that feels like that first sentence after "Dear Electronic Diary." Not just "in life" for me, but a lot "of life." I've got to deal with it.
