My last post….was a perfect example of me flying off the handle. I really need to do a better job of not losing it over things I can’t control. On the plus side….I did wait until I was home to lose it. It’s a character flaw that I am working on….
When I went to work on Thursday, I was still all fired up. I was relaying everything that I had said to you on Wednesday to my coworkers as soon as I walked in the door. I was fired up …..they were fired up….and then sometime that morning I calmed down. Probably from exhaustion…..my own doing….I know. Right before lunch I walked next door to get ice and I passed a familiar face. You won’t even believe it when I tell you……The girl I was upset with…. that married my cousin….her dad was in the waiting room and he had been there all morning. What are the flipping odds of that? Sometimes I swear that the Universe is just messing with me. He knew me but he couldn’t place me, so I have that in my favor. I have no idea if my rant was heard or not. Everything I said was true but still….what the heck?
The wood finish is still a little rough and the modge podge will never be a smooth finish so I went to the craft store. Do you remember when old people used to put a plastic table covering over their fabric table cloth? I bought that from the home decor department in JoAnn fabrics and cut it to fit the desk. We are going to give that a try. The girl still has to bring home the computer from her dads before she can test it out completely. It looks much better than it did……this is the before.
I also worked on the lingerie chest this week but I didn’t take pictures yet. Maybe tomorrow?
Last night I met my friend who I made the custom piece for….the one who’s grandson died. We haven’t met up since then, between the weather and the holidays it has been hard. Last night we met up where she works and hung out on the restaurant side. I met her at 5:10, right after work and didn’t get home until after 8:30. I had a really nice time and sampled some really good food. The people watching at this place was something to see. There was a lot of high maintenance sequence going on. There was a young girl a couple of seats over who was very tipsy and trying to keep the attention of a man who was twice her age. He was very nice and polite and she was definitely not his type….mmm I wonder if my brother would like him? We haven’t established his type yet but it’s something to think about.
I had a nice time last night and I am a firm believer that the Universe puts people in your path when you need them. PT and SB are two that I am grateful for everyday. Speaking of PT….her sister was in town and had a birthday dinner for her at a local restaurant. I showed up late….in time for a glass of wine and cake. I made her this….
I also found an adorable fairy garden sign for her patio. I’m glad I went. I felt weird showing up to a fancy restaurant in yoga pants but I wasn’t sure they would still be there after my class. I took a crochet class tonight. I turned this….
There is a single,double and a chain stitch….not in that order. It will take some practice but eventually I will get it. I have big aspirations…..rugs and other meditation room items. There is so much more out there other than a blanket to crochet. Don’t get me wrong, eventually there will be blankets…
I also forgot to mention…in the blind rage that was Wednesday afternoon….that I had to have a sonogram earlier that afternoon. The girl this time was different…younger….more thorough….bordering on uncomfortable. She was nice enough though. She told me to get dressed and go to the little waiting room. (the room I once feared was the bad news room) I got dressed and opened the door. I scared the heck out of the doctor who was walking by the room and didn’t expect me to open the door. He looked at me and said “cyst.” I patted him on his shoulder and said “you are my favorite person today” and then got the heck out of dodge.
That was the rest of my week….much lighter than my Wednesday rage….Zia
