Coke & Lime 1, Scully 0

I succumbed to the genius that is the Coke & Lime this afternoon after a valiant struggle of three and a half days. The past three and half days have not been pretty. I have not been happy. I have been exhausted and miserable and plagued by a nasty headache and neckache. And after the post-Institute existential crisis I enjoyed last night, followed by a morning of work issues, I felt I couldn’t face the County Courthouse without one. One day at a time, right? Although, after depressing myself with calculating that most of the Institute attendees had been in kindergarten when I was sitting in the exact same room my first year of Seminary, and that after 14 years I had ended up back where I started, possibly in the exact same desk, I doubt I’ll be returning to Institute. But like Parker said, “A for effort.” And like Scarlett said, “Tomorrow is another day.”

Easy home girl.. I hardly think you're back where you started.. you've done A LOT in between and have lots to show for it... your keen fashion sense for one :)

And I agree with two forks.. embrace the coke and lime.. I eat chocolate EVERY DAY even though it gives me big time headaches too most days. What's wrong with us!!

definite A for effort.

3 hours and 10 minutes to go..
(I don't have a second hand.. but seeing as how my clock just changed to 4:50.. it's probably somewhere around 34 seconds by now)
