40. Can I join the pity party? (Am I the only DUer to have read Bacall's "By Myself"?)

 

Yesterday I had to make an emergency run to U of Wisconsin to get specialized pics of a tremendous horse who unfortunately had too much damage to his ulna and had to be put down. 26 years young and a true national level athlete who came in from turnout with an injury so severe it wasn't reparable.

Cue 8 hours of drama and sobs ending with a long walk to the padded pavilion where they put the horses down. I arrive home exhausted to find out about Robin Wiliams. More sobs. I mean Robin Williams?? A national tragedy.

Today I have to accompany my youngest daughter to her New Student Orientation for college and she's a shit. Turns out she has correctly interpreted NSO as a giant pep rally and isn't interested (which neither am I really but I have to try to be rah rah right?). 8 hours of shittiness later and I arrive home to discover Lauren Bacall has died. I actually read her book when I was a teen and was astonished at her humor, grace and intelligence.

I'm fighting another sinus infection and my head hurts.

Sigh. Only Tuesday and I already hate this fucking week.
