Carrie and I had to go to a training thing in Phoenix for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life held here in Bisbee. Carrie drove her convertible BMW with the top down. Afterwards, I picked dirt out of my hair.
The Mule Mountain Relay For Life will have a website this year. I am the Online Chairperson. I figured since I have lost so many friends and family members to cancer I could get involved with the ACS Relays as a way to help my community.
Carrie dropped me off in Tucson the next day. Ray picked me up so we could visit Lori and Beth who had just relocated from Chicago. While I was driving home on I-10 late that night, the alternator on our car died. The good news is that it was right where we get off the freeway. The bad news is that we were still about 60 miles from home and had to spend the night in a Motel 6. The really bad news is that it cost $500 to fix. The really-really bad news is that we have to make the trip out to Benson after work to pick up the car.
Today has been such a Monday. Aside from having an all-day headache and puncturing my thumb with a mechanical pencil, I have been working with some software at work that totally sucks. I just want to crawl into a hole and hibernate.
At least I can look on the bright side; Friday is my flex day.
