How can everything go wrong on a day when I donít even do anything? All I planned to do today was sit around and try to gather myself after a difficult week. I did plan to go to the post office, but I didnít ever get around to it. I had faxes from various work-related sources, but I didnít really look at them, much less respond to them. This should have been an easy day. I still donít know how it all went wrong.

The answer, my friend, is probably blowing somewhere through the sleep issues Iíve been battling for so long. Last night was the worst yet. I fell asleep in the chair early and went to bed without even posting a journal entry (a rarity for me). Within half an hour I was back up. As soon as I lay down I was wide awake, and my legs were aching so much that I couldnít lie there and try to get to sleep.

After sitting up for two more hours, I tried going to bed again. I let myself sleep very late this morning, to make up for not just last night but the whole week, I should have had a peaceful, easy day. Why it turned out otherwise is what I canít figure out — for next time, donít you know, so I donít have to go through this again.

Sky light.

One good thing came out of it. (Only one, Iím pretty sure.) When I got so angry at NBC for showing the last hour of a four-hour college football game when a race was supposed to be starting, I found so much dirt under the chair I tipped over on purpose that I got out the vacuum and went over the rug. It was a good way to spend those agonizing moments that I thought I was missing the one thing I really wanted to watch. It turns out NASCAR delayed the start of the race so that NBC could finish its precious football game, but the harm (and the good) was done.

Yeah, Roger Clemens pitched well and Mike Lamb hit a two-run homer, but letís talk about another Astros hero, Jason Lane, who drove in the lead run in the seventh and then manufactured the next run, which was the one that won the game. He slid hard into third, taking out the third baseman, and then on a ground ball (to the new third baseman) scored when he ran perfectly down the base line, leaving no room for anything but a wild throw to the plate. The result is a 4-3 win by the Astros over the Cardinals, and a 2-1 lead in the series... The White Sox have been a team playing under a cloud ever since the Black Sox scandal of 1919, but if they lose the ALCS, it wonít be because theyíre not getting the breaks. Every close call is going their way, and every horrendous umpireís call has been in their favor. They helped themselves a lot tonight, though, finally banging out some hits and scoring a few runs in their 8-2 win over the Angels that gives them a 3-1 lead in the series.
