This week has been SO LOVELY. Those of you who go to a place of business for your job understand that there is an ATMOSPHERE there. It can be a friendly, inviting atmosphere, or a dark and gloomy one.
I was dreading going back to work because NOBODY wants the boss in their face all the time. Believe me, I don't like it any more than the employees do, but when the Office Manager is leaving for an extended period of time -- 6 to 9 weeks -- maybe longer -- I have no choice but to return and grab the reins again.
It was really HARD for me to let go of the reins years ago in 2008 when Jerry first got sick. Any woman who has to choose between her job and her husband, will always choose her husband. How could she NOT do that?
So now, I am back, and all is well, and I am SO HAPPY, I am actually ENJOYING getting up and going to the office in the morning.
Heaven -- and all of you -- KNOW I have at least a hundred new blouses to wear. Might as well wear them to work, and I am.
I have found that I haven't made matching jewelry for most of them, but maybe I can do some of that on the weekends. BUT -- as I asked Candi before I left the store today -- WHEN do the employees do their wash??? I poured all of the hamper contents out onto the closet floor on Saturday, and they are STILL laying there -- or are they "lying" there? I never did understand that one!
When I was young and 30 pounds lighter, I would work until after dark every day getting all the tasks done. These days, I like to sit right here in this chair with my feet UP and the laptop OPEN while I talk to all my blog friends.
And LOOK who wants to say high to all my friends:
She needs a bath and a haircut, but isn't she just ADORABLE?
I FINALLY found a pink collar that fits her. One was too small -- one was too big -- and this one is just right. No sparkles or studs, but at least, it is pink. Maybe Jerry will quit calling her "he"!
Time to fix dinner. I'm going to see if Jerry feels like driving 20 miles so I can test drive a truck I want him to buy. His truck is ancient, but he says it is his FAVORITE kind of truck. "Paid For"
Have a perfectly WONDERFUL rest of this week! I plan to.
