The judge dismissed the case! I just stood there looking at him. "you can go Miss". I continued to just blink at him. "get out of here" - I moved. So I lost two days worth of sleep, bit off every nail I had, and worked myself up to the point of crazy - for everything to be dismissed.
My entire time in court was only 10 minutes. We were done and out.
Since we were downtown, we walked over to see the "Bean". I really wasn't all that impressed. Maybe I just don't get "abstract" art. I know it has a name, but to me it was a giant silver kidney bean. Sorry.
We had passes the Cultural Center on our way to the "Bean". They had a banner up for something called "Morbid Curiosities". Sounded like our speed so we checked it out. They had some beautiful pieces and displays. Wonderful "death art" (skulls/skeletons) including Tibetan skull bowls. My favorite piece was the Death of Venus - it was great.
They had a second gallery off the main one that had "war" art. I know they were trying to show the horrors of war by using child-like images in the uniforms and such. Problem is I'm a Dr. Who fan - so I looked at hubby and went "are you my mommy" and we both busted up. Not appropriate but if you understood the reference you and smiling right now. At that point we hustled out of there.
I did reward myself with food - good Polish food and a mixed drink but stayed within calories. I did come home and walk the dog, so even accomplished some cardio.
Now, the stress is off, the nervous energy is gone, and two days of no sleep has caught up. I will get caught up with everyone in the next few days. I promise! Thank you so much for all the well wishes and prayers. I'm too tired to strut right now but with some sleep, I'll be right back at it.
