This Is My Candle

This is my candle. Please note that both ends are burning. Everybody has been sick, my workload has doubled this week, and I've been living on pills and coffee. Needless to say, my creative well has been a little low this week.

This Sunday marks 12 years since Flannery and I tied the knot. To celebrate, we are going to bed early after a sumptuous dinner of Ramen noodles. We will toast the occasion with some Tylenol and split a box of tissues. No gifts will be exchanged, as we are as broke as an eight-day clock. These are lean times.

I hope all is well with you and yours. I'll drop by this weekend and read your posts for this week.

Don't let your meat loaf,


  1. I hope no one is sick by Sunday!

    Don't let your finger linger,

  2. Shelley and I are down with it too, but we're recovering.

    Feel better soon!

  3. 12 years? The party is just getting rolling. Get well soon and congratulations.

  4. I wish you both good health and many more years of love.

  5. Since you're sick, in addition to drinking my toast to you two, I will also drink your beer. You're welcome.

  6. Congratulations to you two adorable kids! WHo needs gifts when you can give each other a cold? All best!

  7. We've had several bouts of bugs and colds ourselves, congrats and I hope you guys are feeling better soon.

  8. Happy anniversary, you beautiful people. I'm not going to give you any of that "at least you have each other" crap. Instead, I'm giving you an award (look how I scammed that in there). I hope you feel better soon and enjoy twelve more years in utter luxury!
