How is it that dh ends up working NIGHTS almost every holiday weekend?? I know it could be worse. If he was still on a ship, chances are he would have to work ON the 4th, but still, this SUCKS. I just hate it because it makes me really realize how alone I am. Right now I have Evan to keep me busy, but he goes to bed in and hour and a half. Then it's just me. Fun. On top of that, I think I freaked Evan out earlier. I was watching Live 8, and Pink Floyd came on (which was why I was watching) and they played "Wish You Were Here" and dedicated it to all that weren't there. I SOBBED. I just lost it. I have always had that song on my cd that makes me want to drive off a cliff (made it after Caleb died and dh was in Iraq) so it's always been a very emotional song for me. It just set me off earlier, and Evan took one look at me and HE started to cry. Poor little guy!!

And to make it all just perfect, I feel like shit. I think whatever Evan had earlier in the week managed to find me. I don't have a fever, but I ache from head to toe and my throat is killing me. Great.

I'm sorry sweetie. Take some Tylenol and snuggle on the couch with a good book. I hope you feel better tomorrow.
