I'm swamped and overwhelmed and anxious and depressed.

Two days ago I fled the office in a panic after 2:00 pm.

I'd already handled two delicate situations deftly (with explicit congratulations from my boss on each) but all I could think of was that I was falling ever-more-steadily behind, that I'd reached my limit of 4 anti-anxiety pills per day in under 7 hours, and that I hadda get outta there, posthaste.

Yesterday, you may have noticed, I threw the word "scary" in as an adjective to describe my office.

I've never been so happy for Friday to arrive in all my life.

Thinking about you. That sucks. Hopefully Shabbat will help.

TGIF to the Max! Fridays have a way of letting you breath a sigh of relief as you head out the door at the end of the day. Hang in there.

Q: When is a door not a door?
A: When it's ajar.

There's your Friday joke. Have a relaxing and fun weekend!

EK, thanks. As luck would have it, I've got bimah duty tonite and tomorrow making announcements tonite and giving a bar mitzvah his certificate tomorrow. Two sessions of unabashed singing and worship will be good for my spirits as well as my spirituality.

Moonbeam, what can I say? You know your good wishes always help bouy me up.

Q: How many pshrinks does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Only one, but the light bulb has to really want to change.

Dmarks: I never sausage a thing.

It's taken me a while to ketchup on such blogging basics as icons.
