Today I am celebrating
(1) that I finally got together with a friend for lunch. We haven’t seen each other for almost a year.  Nobody should be so busy that they don’t see a friend for months who lives in the same city.  Anyway, we had lunch and then came back to my apartment and talked for three hours.  It was great!
(2) work is really busy. Buyers are back from Las Vegas Market and there are lots of orders to enter into the computer.  It’s work but fun to see pictures of what will be coming in the next few months.
(3) and maybe the best. It is Friday and I don’t have to set my alarm clock tonight.  I can sleep until noon tomorrow if I want. Fridays are great because they lead to Saturdays!
I am a lazy ditz.

Three to celebrate…

I always have things to celebrate and
here are three things I celebrate this week


  • We once again have safe clean water.  No need to boil it before drinking or cooking.  It is amazing how we take safe clean water for granted. We just use it every day without any thought of what is involved in getting it to our homes.


  • After a week away from work, I went back on Monday and by today I was all caught up and my desk is clear and ready for next week.


  • Had lunch with a friend I don’t see very often.  Always wonderful to catch up and hear what’s new and the veggie pizza was too good.

Split personality…

I sort of have a split personality….most ditzy people do.


I am organized and efficient and get things done in a timely manner.
I know what needs to be done and rarely use a to-do list.
I just do it.
At work.

I am not really organized or efficient and put off getting things done.
I know what needs to be done and always have a to-do list…somewhere.
I don’t do it until I can’t stand seeing it on the dreaded to-do list one more day.
At home.

I guess it depends on where I am whether or not things get done and when.
Not sure why that is.
Maybe if there was someone I had to answer to at home I would get more accomplished.
Teddy is no help…
as long as his dish has food in it and his litter box is clean he could care less.

A little bit is okay…

Do I work well under pressure?
Yes and no.

I can work under pressure but I am not nice when there is lots of pressure.
A little bit and I am pretty much my usual no-nonsense but nice self.
Past a certain point the smile leaves my face and I age about ten years
becoming super cranky and as I said…not nice.


Fortunately, the job I have now has little if any pressure.
There are things that must be done in a timely manner
and sometimes many things seem to be on the same timeline.
But overall I am not pressured.

I think part of my lack of feeling pressure has to do with the facts of my life now.
I work part-time and pretty much make my own hours.
As long as what I am paid to do gets done I can come and go as I please.

Friday, my job…


Something I celebrate is my job.  I work part-time with flexible days and hours.  As long as the work is done I can pretty much come and go as I please. The people I work with and for are great.  I like what I do.  There is some variety and no stress.  Really, my job is about as stress-less you can get and still be working.
