So, yesterday was crazy! But good crazy, mostly. The morning didn’t start off so well. Up nice and early [6:30], not bad even for some of you parent types. And this is from a woman who is self-employed. I don’t HAVE to get up that early. =) Anyhow, caught up on my news/blogs, etc, made breakfast, took out the trash, la de da. Then I was rushing around trying to update my resume, because we had two, count them TWO, appointments for new contracts yesterday!!! So I’m running around like crazy, totally redoing that, trying to get ready, Rita and I are calling each other back and forth trying to get ready to go, and her printer stops working. So she has to send everything to me. Our printer must have just read the Tortoise and the Hare and sided with the turtle cause it was going sooooo slow. I make it out the door in a professional yet to-be-uncomfortable-much-later outfit, only to have my purse tip over and dump in the garage as I was getting in the car. So, not the best start to the day. But, after that, it went quite well.
We basically have secured two new contracts and two more that we know about are most likely on their way! Yay! this business thing might actually work! I found an awesome top to wear to Dallas this weekend when we go ‘clubbing for science’ as I like to say. AND I actually came home and did Tae-bo AND my entire Pilates tape which I had lost but then found, guess where?, in the VCR of course. THEN, I actually stuffed my face with some lunch meat and headed to UTA to do some studying for my LMSW exam. The only other annoyance of the day were the 15/16 yr old girls in Kinko’s at 10pm who YELLED every word to each other and the clerk guy who I think they were actually trying to flirt with. Here’s an excerpt:
WHAT? DID YOU JUST CALL ME FAT? HE JUST SAID I WAS FAT! OMG! DO YOU HAVE A GIRLFRIEND! HEY! I NEED TO PAY FOR MY LAMINANTS! I HOPE YOU’RE ALONE ON VALENTINE’S DAY JUST LIKE ME! [other girl] ARE YOU HITTING ON ME? ARE YOU TRYING TO FLIRT WITH ME?
As you can imagine, I didn’t last very long in the Kinkos. Had to get out. But I did wish the clerk a pleasant evening as I left. He laughed and said thanks.
Let’s see how today goes. I get to stay at home. Yeah.
