The blank page spreads before me
like a white satin sheet
Iím dying to lay on.
My eyes are so heavy
and my mind keeps going blank.
If I could just get a few minutes
of precious sleep
I think I could keep my eyes open.
Or perhaps not,
it might just make me sleepier still.
Downing coffee like a fool
then doing the stairs
to take a powder
doesnít even help.
The minutes are crawling by
as I nod between each line.
Iím about ready to hang it up
and go home.
Iím not earning my pay today.
Itíd help if I had a big project.
But Iím scraping for things to do.
Things will pick up again
in a week or two.
OMG!
This day is going to last forever!
I donít know what to do.
Maybe Iíll just sit here
and daydream of you.

You're much too busy with family to have an oncoming case of the "Christmas Blues", aren't you, Miss Lori?

Take the rest of the day off and do something dangerous!

...just bein' Bluesy

I took a cat nap at lunch and I'm doing better. Do something dangerous, huh? I could go activate my new MasterCard! heh, heh, heh
I don't think it's the blues, I think it is getting up at 3am for some reason the past few days. ~L
