I am so sorry, all. Last week was a humdinger at work--one of the top 10 worst 3-night-stretches--and when I got off work Saturday morning I came home and hit the hay hard! So, as sometimes happens with sleeping days and then switching to nights, my internal calendar was off and all day yesterday I was thinking it was Saturday. When it sunk in, I realized I'd missed Saturday at the Movies.
Guess you'll have to take me out to the parking lot and flog me.
And my blog reader was up to 108 Friday (actually, Saturday) night, so I got it down to 83, when lo and behold, it was back up to 100 by last night. I'm slowly making my way through, and trying to leave comments, so please forgive me for being 5 days behind in your messages.
The good news is, the sewing room is almost finished. After viewing it last Tues. afternoon, I realized it needed a second coat. That "dirty, wet sand color", as Lori named it, was showing through just a bit, or at least I could see it, so whether or not it was a figment of my imagination was a moot point. I wouldn't be happy with it if I didn't do a second coat. I'm hoping to get everything back into the room by tonight. Not sure if I'll get the new curtain rod hung and the curtains back up before going back to work tomorrow night, but soon. I just can't stand the chaos of furniture all over the house being out of place.
Yesterday I made a trip back to Home Depot for another quart of paint, since I hadn't bought enough for two coats, and I needed more roller pads and brushes. As I walked in, a smiling man in a bright orange vest asked if I needed any help today. I smiled back and said, no, thanks, I knew just what I wanted. On my way down to the paint section, another smiling orange-vested person asked if I needed help, one told me she liked the cats on my purse (it's a Laurel Burch bag), and another said hello, have a nice day. The paint salesperson went and brought me a cart when I ended up with more items than I could carry, and all the cashiers were standing at the entrance to their registers, smiling and waiting for customers. It was like walking into the Home Depot version of The Stepford Wives. I figure they must be trying something new to encourage business, but it was just a little bit creepy.
Okay, got to get moving. Hopefully we will resume our regular programming soon!
