My city is flooded (photos coming shortly), I only slept about two hours last night, I have to do something that will be perceived as hurtful (even though it is truly the right thing to do), I am feeling overwhelmed because I am so behind on one volunteer gig (because I have put in triple overtime on the other volunteer gig), and I witnessed something completely disturbing tonight outside of my home.

Now, my home is fine.  I am fine.  No damage.  And I never did have to evacuate.  The changed it to voluntary.  So I opted not to and everything was fine.

I know that the right thing is not always the easy thing in life.  I do.  But it's still very hard to be in this position.

I know I cannot do it all.  And it will get done.  But probably not by tomorrow morning.

Because I am crashing hard right now.  Need.  Sleep.

And as far as what I witnessed...well that one I can't seem to work through at the moment.  I just...  It was...  Ugh...can't even bring myself to talk about it.  So gross. 

My day was not necessarily bad.  At all. I am just feeling very overwhelmed and exhausted tonight. As I am crawling into bed and feeling quiet for the first time since early this morning, the strange parts of my last 20 hours are washing over me.

Tomorrow is another day.  But tonight...I'm crossing my fingers I get some sleep.

Hoping you are sleeping well right now my friend. What the heck was it that you saw? What's the story behind that? Doesn't sound good whatever it is.

Glad you are safe. Take everything one step at a time and you will get through that overwhelming feeling. I'm curious too, what the heck happened?
