the stress of getting this one out the door woke me up early this morning.  had the coffee ground and the water boiling and sat down to the laptop at 5:45 a.m.  aside from the 45 minutes driving a couple 8th graders to school, i think i stepped away four times- three of those to take a leak and once to warm up last night's pizza for lunch.  just emailed off the prelim for review about 10 minutes ago.

by my count that's a net of, oh, 13.25 hours of drafting and examining title today.  i know for some of you that's S.O.P., and i know some dudes who've done it like this for years (oh wow, that just made me realize- good buddy who was one of them died 9 years ago today).  but i'm sorry- i hope this never gets to be more than about a semi-annual event for me.  if that.

at least the fee will buy a few beers...

uh, no.  

sitting on one's kiester staring at a monitor for 13 hours straight sucks.  maybe not for everyone, but certainly for me.

i have more 13 hour days on the horizon than i can count.  and i'll take 'em.  because the vast majority of them are going to be days outside.  you know- working...

45 minutes with 8th graders can take a toll on one's mental attitude. 🤪

It's been the worst day since yesterday. Flogging Molly

 That song always helps me feel better along with copious quantities of good beer or bourbon.
