The British Have a Word For It

knackered: tired, worn out, ready for the boneyard, etc. etc.

I'm knackered.

So hi to everybody and all that. I'm just gonna sit here and read quietly for awhile.

And no, I don't have all my Christmas shopping/carding/baking/yada yada done yet.

....and I went out to get in my car only to find a flat tire. At least it can be plugged. I can only laugh at this point...is this when they put you in that nice white jacket with the long sleeves?

Ya see! I knew it would happen. All that lounging has made you soft. I may not be completely ready yet, but I will be by the time Christmas rolls around. And I have tons of energy. See, I'm dancing an energetic jig. And I'm even now printing out twwenty copies of 12 pages of christmas carols that we're going to practice tonight so that we can go out caroling on Saturday, and this after a strong eight hour day at work.

Come on, suck it up ladies and gents. Time waits fo no one, not even the tired.

Goodweed running and ducking, weaving like crazy to avoid misiles thrown by everyone.

But really, I know the feeling. I'm pretty energetic today. But if you had seen me draggin around the last two days, you'd know that I've been there too, and just recently. Too little sleep and too much to do are the rules right now. I hope I can maintain my current energy level in spite of the miserably cold rain that's been ruining my hopes for a white Christmas. I hate rainy and cold weather. When it was snowing and 15 degrees last week, I was in my element and smiling. Today, well I just have to make the best of it.

Wishing you all a good week, a good night, and a chance to get some quality rest and a bit of laughter in your life.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North
