I finally made it to work today. It was exhausting. I forget I am as old as I am, especially at times like these. When I was twenty, I would have been out partying even though I knew I was sick. I always figured drinking would cure all ills. All it did was make me forget I was sick! Now, this thing had me down for the count, and I am not bouncing back like I used to. I asked my boss if I could work tomorrow. It's usually a day off for me, but I need to make up the time. She says she has no problem with that and she is going to be short some people. Teenagers mostly, so what the heck! It's a short day anyway, I go in at 9 get out at 2. Besides, I still have to pick up the garage door opener for my dad's girlfriend to give him for Christmas. I was supposed to order that weeks ago. Goes to show you what's been on my mind! Nothing, no brains cells, no thoughts, nothing, not even water on the brain!
I picked out some color samples from work for the room. I got turquoisey, agua, green blue colors. I think I am going to take some before pictures. Of course that may disgust some of you at the shape of the room now. Of course it is 100% better than it was just after my daughter left. But I'd like some shots for myself so I can see my progress too. I am going with some fairly tropical colors. I thought that would be cheery. It is a room that I plan on spending a lot of time in, so I want a vacationy feel.
Every time I feel I have an extra $25 I'm going to buy myself a Best Buy gift card. When I have enough, I am going to buy myself a nice stereo system for that room too. It's the only way I will be able to save up for something like that. If it's on a card, I can't spend it on something practical like say, food, or something obnoxious like that!
Well, got to go get ready for bed! Night all!
