Welcome to the Weekend!

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!
