I had a nice talk with an old friend last night and it did wonders for my mood today. I was able to walk into work and shrug off all of the petty crap that I deal with everyday. I have wonderful accounts and some have turned into friendships because I am good at what I do….sometimes I just need a reminder. Thanks Joel!
The kids finally came home from their dads after school today, the girl was wearing some furry beast of a sweater that was not the least bit flattering. It wasn’t just me one of her friends offered to teach her how to dress herself in the mornings. She is definitely her own person….I have no idea where she gets that from. 🙂 The beagle was so happy, just look at that face…..
The pumpkin carving in this house goes as follows….the boy takes it from the car to the porch. The girl does all of the elaborate carving and I get stuck separating the seeds from the guts. I make the pumpkin seeds and the boy consumes 85% of them. I think that I get the short end if the stick on this tradition.
I did finish True Grit last night and the movie tonight so I am all ready for book club tomorrow. I was hoping that the movie would make me like the book better, but it really didn’t. Reading for me is an escape and I must be emotionally attached to the characters and I just wasn’t. One of the women at work wants me to read The Witness, I haven’t read any Nora Roberts for a while, I am due for some good brain candy and SB gave me her newest witch series…..I know go figure.
I am happy that tomorrow is Friday, but this is going to be a very busy weekend. Saturday I have family coming from out of town and even baby brother is coming home from Arizona for the burial of my great uncle. I have some family that I only see when somebody dies or gets married but that is what happens when they move away. I have lunch plans on Sunday with two friends, one I haven’t seen since her wedding on 11/11/11. Her husband died quickly last fall, and it is just horrible, there is more to the story and I will fill you in after I get through it……Zia
