Busy Day!

The new accountant started today. She did good! Cross your fingers, but I think she's a keeper.

CEO had four appointments today, and I was working both ends of the building, back and forth to my office by his and down in Acctg. I honestly don't know why I'm so fat because I must run 10 miles a day in that place! Every time I'd sit down with her to go over another procedure, he'd buzz me that he needed me down there. I was plumb tuckered out by about 2:00. And then to top it all off, he decided that he wanted to buy a new Suburban today. So I'm off during my (ha-ha) lunch hour to bring a check to the dealership. Got back to the office and thought all was going to settle down a bit until his next appointment, and lo and behold, he decided to buy a new car, too! This is real unusual for him because he's real conservative. His Caddy is a 1998. I've been after him for a long time to get a new car, but today? Two of them? LOL. We had a huge laugh about that!

Tomorrow hopefully will settle down some. He's got one appointment in the morning, and then I think (I hope) he's going out of town. Maybe I'll have the afternoon with the new lady. One of these years I need to get in my office and shovel out the stuff that's been piling up in there over the past couple of months.

I'm going to stop in tomorrow night on the way home at the new quilt shop. They're staying open until 7:00 at night! Hooray! I know that I can now stop there on the way home when I'm desparately needing something....... well, I might need something. You never know! Anyway, it'll be fun exploring the new place. Jane has already been in there and says it's adorable. She's going to help her tomorrow get it up and running. It'll be fun!

Sad news today. My friend in Missouri's little puppy was hit and killed by a car. I'm just heartbroken over this. I called and talked to Jace tonight. Sally is out of town with her brother who just lost his wife after a long illness. Such an awful thing to have to deal with alone. It was good talking to him, and we ended up trading funny stories and laughing a bit, so I hope the talk helped him some. I got off the phone with him and gave Daisy a huge hug. Same old dog - same old hugs!

It's only 9:30, but I'm heading upstairs now. I need to stretch out in a prone position and relax! I've enjoyed reading about all the quilty things getting done by all my blogger friends! Keep posting those pictures! Please!

Poor little Mia...and my heart just breaks for Jace and Sally. *Thank you* for being there for a always. Really.

glad to hear the new person seems to be a winner-hope today (Friday) is much calmer and you get to stay in one place-how very sad for your friend to lose a puppy...

I hope you are right about the new accountant being a good fit for the job. That will reduce one area of stress for you-and you will be able to direct more energy towards quilting! hooray!

Glad you had a good day.

Sorry to hear about the loss of a dear pet.

Perhaps next week will be a shade better.

Hey girl, hugs for a job well done on a super busy day!!
And a couple of special hugs for Daisy...God bless her little face and body..all in one piece and home, where she belongs..*VBS* Hugs, for you, Finn

Sounds like you can see the light at the end of the tunnel...much more pep in your post today (oops, yesterday). So you didn't have to hire the accountant with the absenteeism record? Hope she works out well. One job is more than enough for you!

How nice that you got to hug on your "same old dog". I was glad I had just been hugging on my cat when I read about Mia. Isn't it nice to come home to someone who appreciates you?

Enjoy the new quilt shop. It has good timing, opening after August. ;)

Oh, goodness . . I didn't even get to DL yesterday so I didn't know anything about that.

Glad it sounds like the new lady accountant is working out. You deserve it!!

Hey . .it's the weekend!
