We slept in this morning. Essie was ready to get up at out usual time but was a sweetie and laid back down when I asked her to. Work was funny yesterday. I was slated for three pick ups. By the time I went home (almost an hour later than I was supposed to) I had done six. All by myself. We only ha one pick up all week while my trainer was there. Everything he wanted to teach me happened pretty much yesterday. I think I did pretty well. I haven’t heard otherwise. But the company is a large one so I may not for a bit.
Outside is a dirty light grey. Looks like a steady wind too. Yesterday the sun was out. Warm enough that I only had to wear my hoody. That was a nice change! Right now outside is how I feel. Mellow and understated. I need to read a short story for someone when I am done with this. I may start writing my query letters for an article I wrote the other day at work (gotta love that).
Mom’s birthday is coming up. I don’t know what to do for her. We were going to try to get together and do lunch or something. If I’d have remembered sooner I could’ve been working on the counted cross-stitch sampler I started for her back in my teens. Dad took me to Joann Fabrics (or was it Frank’s?) and let me pick out something to make her for Mother’s Day. I think I was maybe 13 years old or so. This project is like my quilt Mom made me. It was all by hand and was supposed to be for my Sweet 16. I got it like 15 or 20 years later. Lol. I also have a ’67 Mustang that I was working on years ago (counted cross-stitch as well). Maybe I will drag some of that stuff out today and atleast go through it. I am notorious for starting projects and not finishing them. Runs in the family. Mom’s birthday is a week and a half away. Not sure how much I could get done but I may give it a go. I could take it to work as well.
I’m going to need to start looking at boots as well. I have my favorite leather cowboy boots that I have been wearing for work. I keep threatening to get myself another pair. When Chris and I have looked all I have found is the designer ones. I am very basic. I just want a plain pair of boots. No design (they will be covered by my jeans anyway) and a regular heel. Apparently I am in a minority.
I need to clean and waterproof them this weekend as well. Did I mention how much I love these boots? Best $12 I’ve spent in a long time (courtesy my work discount and coupons when I still worked at Younker’s).
This weekend I’m going to try to not think about the problems I have. I ma going to set myself some goals and see what happens. I have enough to keep my busy but not too busy. Working every day was nice (I love my shift) so this week will be interesting working every other day. Although I have a meeting to cover Tuesday morning.
I’d better get moving with my day. Amidst the gentle snores and sighs of the sleeping puppies I bid you adieu!
