Well, this is not good. I could not obtain any tickets for the INXS concert because the closest one is in Chicago and decent seats are going for $300-$800 per SEAT. Not per pair, per SEAT. So after all of my excitement, I will not be seeing them in concert. I feel a little sick.

I haven’t felt well all week. I have been so tired that I’m sleeping at least 12 hours a day and I have a general malaise. I don’t know what is wrong. I slept 13 hours last night and as I write this, I can barely keep my eyes open. My house is a mess and I desperately need to clean it; my mother-in-law and brother-in-law are visiting all weekend and into next week. I think they deserve clean towels, don’t you?

To make my idle whining completely insignificant, I was told today that one of my coworkers lost her husband this week. His death was completely sudden. It’s always tragic when these things happen, but it’s worse when it’s someone one knows well. Also, she’s a wonderful person who really cared about all of us at work. When we would have to work on a holiday (she did not ever work holidays), she would still come to work and bring homemade egg rolls, cookies, or other treats to let us know she was thinking of us. I know her husband is in a better place, but that’s probably little consolation to her or their two young children.

I called my husband and told him he’s not allowed to go anywhere anytime soon. So to whomever is reading this: go hug someone you love. And pray for everyone who’s lost someone.
