Have just had another couple of hours in the garden, this time pruning my plum tree. I feel like I've gone few rounds with the whomping willow!
I'm going to discover bruises and scratches everywhere tomorrow.

I am not doing very good when it comes to switching shift gears. I hope I can go to sleep tonight. I'll have to wear myself out today, on little sleep, to make sure that happens.

I sailed through the spring all cocky that my allergies hadn't shown up, now I'm in a perpetual state water, itchy eyes and stuffed up running nose. So not the fun summer I was looking forward too!

I don't know what has came over me. I am in a mood to organize or re organize everything.

Mine hit late spring, early summer this year. Miserable. I am having better luck with a Rx nose spray than over the counter meds. I keep feeling like I have a chronic sinus infection, but it's just the allergies.

PS- I effing hate nose sprays. I can't stand the feeling, and this one smells like flowers which makes me feel like I'm going to have an attack from snorting a bouquet. Lol

I'm so excited for your tap class tomorrow! You have to tell us all about it! I love tap.

You are more than welcome to use Belly girl's picture as your avi anytime! I will post more pix later today in the pets thread.

The little piggy is currently napping in her crate. She snores like nobody's business!

I finally found some seamless underwear that are actually seamless, but they won't stay in place. Why can't I have my cake and eat it, too?

With unners, you never get to have your cake and eat it too.

I'm reminding myself I said this. This morning I was met with another email of crazy-making. And, the worst part is, I really do doubt myself and feel the need to justify myself - I won't, because then her ploy has worked, pushing my buttons, getting a response from her truly incoherent thinking. I fear I may have to ban her from my life completely because I'm really tired of it.
enough.

I'm going to end up yelling at someone this morning. I have been here for 2.5 hours, we are short staffed, and my co worker has spent at least one hour running all over the building looking for flash drives and CD's to burn songs on. The rest of the time she has sat at her station blasting gospel music.

Sit down and shut up!

She does this every single time our co worker takes off. She finds these side projects, work related or not, that keep her running to other offices, or not paying attention all day.

Lol. Would have if I could have, Rou. I worked on stuff until 7pm. I was tired, but at least I will walk into a nice and neat home after work.

Yes! It is Lily of the Valley, and it's strong.

I need to get back to bath and body at some point. I have not been in a few years. They used to have a bath oil that turned to bubbles, and did not make the tub slippery at all. I loved that stuff!! It was close to unscented, but I think they only make it in cherry now. I also need some more lotions and scrubs.

I woke up from a dream this morning saying, "It's okay, I'll just ask FiFi, she works in emergency services, she'll know what to do"

I'm taking it as a sign of two things:
1. possibly I'm spending too much time on nc.com
2. Fifi - you must REALLY be good if even my subconscious knows you are the go-to person!

I totally hate having to attend cocktail parties for my co. I manage a Board Meeting of 50 people and my co. is having a cocktail party for them afterward. Ugh!!! I am shy, I'm not supposed to drink alcohol, I have absolutely nothing in common with these CEO's of major banks, etc., and I want to be drinking in a good book!

I'm invited but my supervisor said I'm not obligated to attend. Of course it will look really crappy if I don't attend, but I can't stomach it. Introverted curlies, give me some encouragement! I do a great job for my boss - but I loathe the idea of exchanging meaningless chit chat with these people that I don't know and don't care about at all. Unfortunately, if I don't go - it will be obvious that I am completely uninterested in them, but I'm not going to go anyway, even though I'm scared it will count against me.

Curlypearl,

You go for about 30-45 minutes. Just enough time to be seen.

Then you politely excuse yourself saying that you have another plan.

ETA: and you fake the funk as best as you can for the 30-45 minutes!
