there's an old arab curse...

"May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits." Colorful, isn't it? I have a variation on that curse for those of us less familiar with the lifestyle of camels: may the fruit flies of a thousand ripe bananas fly up your nose... No, I'm not really interested in cursing anyone, but I am feeling ever so slightly cursed by an abundance of fruit flies in our house. We have yet to determine a source for them, so can't quite figure out how to get rid of them! Nasty little buggers...

I’ve been feeling slightly crunched here between web delays (which I knew was inevitable) and other demands on my time. For instance, although I finally wrote the informational letter to go out for wedding guests, it’s now been nearly a week and I have yet to get organized to send it! It will be sent via email to those who have it, and snail mail to others, but even that small task feels monumental these days. That’s what stress will do to you, strip you of all capacity to multi-task! It doesn’t do wonders for my confidence, let me tell you, and as I stare down the barrel of web technology, well, you get the idea. I’ve had better days. Better weeks. A truckload of Calgon wouldn’t be sufficient to ease my tensions, I don’t think.
I was going to fill you in on some of the other stuff going on, but I think I’ll do that tomorrow.

One nice thing: I started my morning with an email from Junior, who is now deployed. Bless his heart. Makes a mama proud…

Hi Anne I'll be keeping Junior in my thoughts and prayers and hopes for a successful deployment and a safe return. Now get those letters out! I'm thinking about making our plane reservations!

Prayers from here too for Juniors safe journey "over there" and for all the Calgon you need! Hugs!

Hope things go a little bit better, but I have a feeling you're going to be feeling a little bit stressed until after that wedding. Somehow they do that do a person. Prayers from Illinois too for Junior and all the men and woman overseas.
