I need my pooped puppy icon back

I want it to be Thanksgiving. Now. Because that means my shopping will be done, the winds will have shifted, and we'll finally have rain to help against the Paradise fires. This week has been horrific. I have friends who can't find family, and there's nothing I can do about it because I'm forced to focus on immediate responsibilities with the band and way too many lazy parents. The majority of my waking hours this week have been spent on band, and I'm just done.

I'm trying to limit my time spent running errands which is hard this time of year. Most schools in the area have canceled tomorrow due to the poor air quality. The high pressure front to our west is forcing the smoke toward the ground so it blankets everything right now. It's worse than it was at the beginning of the week.

And...I'm whinging. I'm just tired. I'm fighting a cold on top of everything else, and I slept like crap last night. I had stress dreams where I was a pilot on this huge ship that crash-landed into a small colony and our presence completely unbalanced their delicate systems. The disruptions messed with everybody's heads so nobody could sleep, which then turned people violent and/or confused. And then everybody started blaming me so they started chasing me but I was so exhausted from not being able to sleep that I got caught. It got bloody after that.

My dreams are vivid, scary places sometimes.

On the plus side, the Harry Potter Lego Hogwarts Castle set I bought as a family Christmas gift arrived today. I hate that I have to wait more than a month before we can start putting it together!

    I have to keep reminding myself to breathe. In. Out. Don't get bogged down by the weight of it all. Just in. And out. I have SO much to do. Two…
