Good Morning, Little Chicklets! Carnival.com says “17 Days till your cruise, Pat!” I looked up the weather forecast in Cozumel yesterday and it’s a whole lot warmer than Louisville. Highs running around 80 and lows around 67. Oh, yeah!
I got eaten alive yesterday. Worked 13 hours and still didn’t get caught up! I got home at 5:00 but I had to make some changes to the newsletter because of stuff people didn’t give me before I left so I brought it home with me and didn’t get finished with it until 8:00 pm. By then, I was ready to eat some dinner, help Andrew with his homework, and crawl into bed at 10:00. Hopefully, I can get caught up on some of your blogs today.
Yeah, I hear you, Joy and Brandie! I really don’t need to fool with this staff party. I’ve got way too much going on. Turns out, however, that Phyllisann was fooling with me. I’m not doing it by myself. There are three of us and I hope she’s going to take the lead but I’m going to be helping out.
The ROTC money was still safely stashed in my desk but I still didn’t get time to go to the bank. I’ve GOT to get that done today. We have a Booster Club meeting this evening and I want to be able to report a big fat deposit. Okay…instead of blogging, I’m going to try to catch up with you guys over the next 15 minutes!
6:15 – Feeling a little insecure about what I’m wearing today. A gorgeous, lime green cami, black pants, red Barbies, and a black jacket with a lot of different colors running through it, mostly red but it has green as well. Problem is…the cami is really sexy so I can’t take the jacket off all day and the jacket is from last winter so it’s too big in the shoulders and it’s a boxy thing with no real fitted seams in it. hmmm…I hate when I do this. If I get started, I’ll wind up trying on a dozen different tops, a half dozen pair of pants, and several jackets and I’ll leave for work with them thrown all over the bedroom. Better to stick with what I’ve got. It’s been freezing in the library at school anyway so I shouldn’t have a problem leaving the jacket on all day.
6:45- Okay, Okay, Okay…so I changed to a pair of jeans and added BIG dangly green earrings. I think I can live with it.
5:00 pm – Just got home and I have thirty minutes before I have to go back to school. I stayed after for a meeting and to get info about the Christmas staff party. I suggested we have DS cater it because I know he’ll give us the best deal he can but I still want him to make something for doing it. Principal agreed with this yesterday and I talked to him. Told him to figure up a bid for finger foods for 175 people. Today, Phyllisann met with the principal to get an idea of what she wants. She wants chicken wings, meatballs, chicken drummettes, sauces to go with them, assorted cheeses and crackers, fruit trays, veggie trays (both with dips) punch, chips and dip, and an assortment of cookies, fudge, or brownies for dessert. No pies or cakes. Okay…ready for this? Her budget is $400.00 for 175 people. I felt my temper rising but didn’t want to blow. Felt like saying, “Are you CRAZY???” I backed off the conversation because I was getting steamed. I know David is putting together a menu for us today with prices and I felt like saying, “If you knew what you wanted, why am I having him come up with suggestions?” Of course, the budget is ridiculous. Nuff said…
I’m totally starving! No breakfast, I took stuff for a salad for lunch and found the lettuce to be old and icky, the grape tomatoes were okay, the fat free cheese was gross, and the “bacon bits” DH got me were the fake things that taste like crunchy little rocks. Went to put the dressing on it and discovered that someone ate my favorite salad dressing from my little fridge. Poured some mediocre dressing over it, ate a few bites, and tossed it in the trash. Gonna try to find something to eat before I have to run back to school. Oh, yeah, I finally made it to the bank and deposited the moolah. Big relief to have $1,162.00 out of my desk drawer! I also kept my jacket open and showed cleavage most of the day. Hope I didn’t contaminate any young minds.
9:00 pm – I have no doubt Heaven is a wonderful place. And I know, in that beautiful paradise, there’s a little corner where one can gently slide into a hot bubbling spa and soak away the aches and pains of the day. Everything is perfect in Heaven so I know angels will be standing by to hand out lovely, clean jersey pajamas that are just a little too big and still hold the warmth of the dryer. sigh… goodnight, girls.
