Yesterday at work was a little easier to bear. The first day back from vacation truly is the most difficult. Our optician once again misplaced her phone and didn’t remind anyone about the frame event last night. I never heard a thing about it because I was on vacation last week. She asked me before lunch and I said sure! Thirty odd years left….I keep saying that more and more. I stopped at Subway and grabbed the kids subs for dinner and went home and grabbed a change of clothes.
We left work and headed to the event. The forty five minute drive felt like nothing because we were chatting. We found it with no problems….I was a little worried about that. 🙂 My only disappointment was that I didn’t run into any of the old lab accounts while I was there. I miss talking to some of them and I was hoping to say hi. I still had fun and won some prizes.
I spun the wheel and won a pair of Flexon aviator sunglasses. I was hoping the girl would like them. She might like them better after I get them straightened and tightened. Of course she would have to wear her contacts and she rarely wears them. I won a nine west crossover bag. It’s cute and will work for special occasions. I also won a pair of much bolder two toned sunglasses. I will take a picture of them when they get to work.
I got home around 9:30 ish which wasn’t too bad. There was one time during the drive when I became a turnpike hero…..You guys know how I get my crazy lead foot going in the morning? Well there was a point on our drive home when we talking and she was in the passing lane next to a truck. We were driving next to the truck for a while and I happened to glance in the rear view mirror outside of my window. So I said “Um K, are you going to pass this truck?” “Why” she said? “Oh I was just wondering because there is quite a line of traffic behind you.” She passed the truck and as all of the cars zoomed passed with angered intensity, in my head I said “your welcome” to every car that blew past us. Less than five minutes later the semi truck passed us too. She’s not a bad driver, she’s just not in any hurry. It was still a good night!
My cousin’s daughter took a picture of me on Sunday that I didn’t even know she took. I could point out all of my flaws like the weight and how the melting in the sun was dissolving my hairspray and my whirl was starting to show but I will try not to focus on these things.
The most exciting part of my day today was my little package in the mail. I follow a group called “all souls discussion group” on Facebook. It’s where you follow along the the real time read of A Discovery of Witches. I loved this book and have read it a few times. Somebody posted a picture of a bracelet and let me tell you…that girl’s Etsy shop was busy. So busy that she said when she was making these she was listening to the audio book out of curiosity. My bracelet came today…..
I wore it tonight when the girl and I did our running around. It slides around a little but only because this aluminum is crazy heavy duty and my wrist is so small. I love it! I’m going to have to go check out her Etsy store for Outlander products. Christmas will be here before you know it!
I met my brother for lunch at the vault restaurant today. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner. He works less than five minutes away and I work until noon on Wednesday. We won’t be able top do it every week but we can meet a couple of times a month. I sort of cut him off a little when he was telling my dad everything that was going on in my world. My words were for my brother’s ears not my dads. That’s when I started censoring my words and it has impacted out relationship. I’m trying to make it better. …Zia
