I'm back! With post-Derby depression
Posted 05 May 2008 - 12:29 PM
I'm in the crash and burn phase. Being a caterer, Derby is my second busiest season of the year. In the last 96 hours, I worked 81. I'm a little delirious!
This is always such an exciting time of year. There's about 3 weeks of festivites leading up to the actual race. When it's over, teh whole city is kind of in a coma, stumbling around trying to re-group and make plans for the next year.
It would have been so much better had the race not had such a tragic end. The place horse (2nd) fell and broke both front ankles and had to be put down on the track after she crossed the finish line. I cried when I heard it on the radio (I wasn't at a TV to watch). We've had a lot of high-profile losses in the last few years with Barbaro, Breeders Cup, and now this.

I'm so glad you made it through the work week though. That's a ton of hours girl. Shouldn't you still be sleeping?
