It's a sickness!
It truly is. Last night, and actually into the wee hours of the morning, I was cleaning carpets. Just didn't want to deal with it this weekend. Anyway, when I pulled out the dining room chair from the far side of the table, these two scraps fell off of the seat. Man, you should have seen me. I dove for them, got tangled up in the cord to the cleaner, landed half sitting in one of the chairs, arms and legs in every direction! From the way I was acting, you'd have sworn these were the last two pieces of fabric on the face of the earth! And how silly is it that I actually took a picture and wanted to blog about them! Yep, these last scraps are surely destined for greatness! :)
It's SO hot here, but I guess everyone is experiencing similar weather. But it's really really really hot here. So much for the new and very short hairdo. It was plastered to my head all week from just plumb sweating. Now, I know Southern ladies are supposed to perspire - but you've gotta trust me on this one! So I called my hairdresser and changed my appointment from tomorrow morning to tonight. I don't know why it was important for me to do that! She snipped it even shorter on the neckline and really thinned it a lot. I think I've finally gotten rid of the dreaded summer curls that always seem to pop up helter-skelter.
It's days like today that makes me want to apply for a job at the local nursery. I told my CEO today that I wanted to just water plants all day long. I didn't want to supervise anyone. I didn't want to have meetings about employees. I just wanted to water plants! He was cracking up laughing! One of my employees threw a temper tantrum today. I mean, she threw a good old-fashioned hissy fit right in the middle of the office. You know the kind I'm talking about, full of tears and righteous indignation. Then she went into the VP's office to discuss the whole matter ad nauseum. It's ironic that the CEO and I discussed this very thing about her just last week. He was totally supportive, but this just zapped what little energy I had left at the end of a long, hot week. I hope she gets some pondering time in this weekend because I'm a real three-strikes-and-you're-out kind of person, and this was number two for her.
I think this weekend is a sew-in with my friendship group. I'm so out of the loop lately. I need to call someone tonight and find out.
