#SoCS – Calculations


By my calculations, the weekend went by in a blink. Maybe not a mathematical calculation, but definitely a scientific one. Why? Because I said so.

Did your parents say that to you as a child? Mine did.

All day today, I’ve thought it was Sunday, but then I thought no, it’s Saturday. So I was wrongly convinced that I was wrongly convinced it was Sunday. And it was! (It’s Monday now, technically.)

Or is it?

Yes. It is.

What a weird day.

I saw a squirrel die today. Got run over.

That sucked.

Okay, not today, because today is Monday, and it’s only been Monday for 15 minutes. But Sunday. I saw a squirrel get run over. In front of a church, no less. On a … Sunday. Yes. It was Sunday.

I have a feeling I’m going to have nightmares tonight, and that really sucks.

I had nightmares last night. I was woken up by one of those emergency notifications to let me know there was an armed and dangerous man on the loose and to stay home.

So what did I dream about?

You guessed it.

I need a good night’s sleep.

Because this blinking weekend sucked.

By my calculations, at least.

  1. It used to make me mad when my parents said, “Because I said so.” It was so unfair! I deserved to know WHY! I promised myself I would never say that to my kids, though I broke that promise a couple of times. I’m sorry about the squirrel. Now, I’m forcing myself to think of what squirrel heaven would be like. If there are any dogs or cats in squirrel heaven, they will be slow, and not too bright. Maybe there are sections in heaven….. Oh, this is supposed to be a comment, not a SoC post! 🙂

  3. Sorry about your sucky weekend. Wishing you a better week ahead🙂


  4. My hope is the “$$@#!” blinking weekend has morphed into a less “$$@#!” blinking week – or WILL do so, soon. Blinking happens all the time – – “$$@#!” blinking usually requires the assistance of human interferance – LOL


  5. I’m sorry about the nightmares, the squirrel, and the whole not-Sunday thing. That’s enough to make your head hurt. I hope Monday, the rest of Monday is s good day.
