In case anyone's wondering about me, I'll fill you in. This is probably the most stressed I've ever felt in my life. Without going into the boring details, I feel pretty much surrounded by stress.

The good news is that aging seems to impart some wisdom when dealing with stress. In other words, I may be dealing with the stress better than ever before. That's certainly a good thing, but it doesn't mean everything is peaches.

I think I'm even less patient than ever, which seems to be the first casualty. Second, my ability to concentrate is at low ebb. And third, the stress is nearly omnipresent.

On the other hand, I have been avoiding a number of pointless arguments, which is not like me at all. I used to love stress-multiplying pointless arguments.

But I guess you cut back when you can no longer afford something. I am hoping to save up and get into an altercation with a creationist.

And that's your Tuesday Morning Downer for the week!

When the going gets tough, the stressed burn their paperwork and go for cocktails.

Hang in there, man. I truly understand where you're at.

Best advice ever, Patti. James, it's better to be "less patient" than "more of a patient." Or some such. Best wishes where appropriate.

With age comes wisdom. And with friends, too.

I toast you with a fine foam cup of water (well, I am at work).

Hang in there buddy. Avoiding the stupid arguments is probably better for your blood pressure. And if you need to just get away, you got a place to stay in Sunny CA. :)
