"Run Ragged"

I'm at school, so I don't have a lot of time to post.

Yesterday my boss called me at 7:00 AM. Her youngest daughter was very sick and she was obviously not going to be at work that day. Then she asked me to step in for her. It was very tiring (especially since I was doing the work of 2 people), but I actually enjoyed it. I like doing administrative work.

When I returned home from work, I had one hour to freshen up before taking off to the college group Bible study/meeting. Needless to say, I slept very well last night.

This morning originally started off well... until Dad and I had a big argument and shouting match over something very trivial. Let's just say this trivial thing was "the straw that broke the camel's back" (one of my mother's many odd sayings).

Literature class was pretty boring today. We mainly discussed the paper that is due this Friday. My Speech class was cancelled, which gave me a very long lunch break (explaining why I am posting from school). Nutrition is in 20 minutes. We are going to continue discussing essential fatty acids... yay. After that is History. I hate the way my History professor talks about the Puritans. Monday she was ranting about Jonathan Edwards' Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God and bashing George Whitefield for his "theatrics."

What was the trivial thing? Oh yeah, "the straw that broke the camel's back" is not one of your mother's odd sayings. It is a common expression used to explain a situation that would otherwise not be offensive or annoying had it not been for a litany of previous offenses and annoyances.

I was trying to get Dad to take Mom's cellphone so I could contact him when I arrived. He was being stubborn and refused to take the phone (for reasons I still do not know).

I liked it. The music was a little loud for my taste, but other tha that, I enjoyed myself. You missed a good lesson, Jules.

The lesson wasn't long (to me, but I enjoy L-O-N-G sermons). Maybe 45 min, at most.
