I don’t have nuthin’ on Joseph (Oct. 21)

To paraphrase..last night I had the strangest dream.

I dreamt that we were evacuating the planet and I didn’t want to leave because I had finally gotten my closet organized and it looked so good. I snuck off the escape vessel and went back to my house to get my digital camera and took pictures of the closet.

This dream repeated all night. All I gotta say is that in my dreams, I really like minimalist closets.

Oh, and don’t tell this to your husband during lunch at the Vietnamese restaurant. They are apt to embarass you with their laughing.

I’m Stuffed (Oct. 18)

I spent the better part of yesterday getting the Florida ZTA Day information packets together. Creating forms…pdfs…burning data to 35 CDs. Making multiple runs to Staples for copies.

So…it’s 630 PM and I”m getting ready to (finally) sit down and stuff & address all the envelopes and Vicki calls me. She found a typo on the front page of the registration packet. CRAP!!! I make yet another trip to Staples for copies. Then I have to go through 35 collated copies and replace the offending page. And upload a new copy to the website. Good news is that they are ALL in the mail. Yippee for me.

And I just now realized that the copy of the document on the CD is wrong. Insert expletive here.

I’m off to email the contact list and let them know about it. Darnitalltoheck.

Back in the Saddle Again… (Oct 17)

Well, had a pretty good weekend this time around. Lots of folks have notices that I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. OK, OK, more than a ‘bit’. Anyways. I think I may have rediscovered my coping strategies and found some support hidden in areas that were, until recently, unknown to me.

Like James Brown says: I feel good. (badabadabadaba!)

Went to the Down on the Street bead show on Saturday in Havana. Wasn’t as extensive of a show as it was in April. Lots of finished jewelry this time, which is fine for most people. But hell, I’m a beader. I make stuff. Show me the beads! Did pick up some charlottes to finish out a project and got a very small pair of lampwork beads from Turtle Moon. Man, she had some wonderful things – including a bunch of stuff with bright enamel powders.

On Sunday, we didn’t have a sitter, so we decided that neither of us would go to Adult Ed that day. Instead, we decided to have an impromptu picnic with Avner at the park. It was fun running around with him and eating al fresco. It was something we all needed.

Sunday afternoon I had the annual Chai Tea with the Sisterhood group from the synagogue. Usual planning rigamarole. My Roasted Garlic Artichoke Dip was a big hit. Had some nice converstations with folks. Actually felt wanted for a change, not like a fifth wheel.

Oh, and I found my old VCR tape of the first 3 Wallace & Gromit animated shorts. Watched them with Avner on Sunday night while Jon was at his Exec. Board meeting. Hee hee hee..another one corrupted.

I do like a bit of gorganzola….!
