Sunsets and Burgers

Yesterday I had an ok work day.  But, it was a day that had me frazzled. My sleeping medication caused me to oversleep, resulting in being late to work, again.  I also continued with my frustration over the fact that I yet again misplaced my credit card.  With the shame that I felt due to… Continue reading Sunsets and Burgers
