Got up at a reasonable hour, got to work early even though the turnpike was a mess (for no good reason), blah-blah-blah. The irksome item de-jour that really bugged me was that I did not lift a finger to work on that retaining wall once I got home last night. No, I picked up the kids and the pizza, then slipped into the standard 'run around and get everything ready' skit. After a day of frustration and tamping down the urge to throttle people out of their own ignorance, I just did not have the gumption to go out and stack blocks. Perhaps today will be different ... I need to mow the lawn tonight and that's not something I should really put off till tomorrow.
