I'm still alive and well and wondering what I got myself into when taking this job. There are long hours, and the pace is fast, but I've been told that it does slow down eventually.
This morning, while I was still in bed, I made myself a list of things I needed to do - laundry, dishes, putting plastic up on the windows, etc. This job has been expensive for me - the plastic is not up on the windows and we had several storms and below zero weather already. About $25 of my CVS Care Bucks expired, and I have been eating out a bunch, because I haven't had any time to go grocery shopping. If I do this job again next year, I will have a bigger wardrobe to start so I don't have to do laundry as often, and I will go on a big grocery shopping expedition beforehand. I might have to sleep all week before, so I have a reserve of sleep. :)
Anyway, I eventually dragged myself out of bed and got ready for the day. I made the coffee and turned on the computer while I was waiting for it to brew. There was an email from my LQS talking about the SuperBowl sale. I had known about it earlier, but I had forgotten. I quickly called my Mom and the two of us trekked off to the shop. Well it isn't a long trek, since the shop is in the neighborhood. She had never been there. It was crowded, but we got to look at lots of beautiful quilts and touch lots of wonderful fabric. I didn't buy much - the kit I wanted she wanted too so I let her have it, even though I bought the book.
It was really nice to be able to do something fun for a change. Now I guess I have to rush around doing my chores and get ready for the next workweek!
