My husband, Sergio, went to Detroit yesterday morning. He use to travel alot, but lately he will try to make it back home to sleep in his own bed. I love him, I love our marriage. BUT I also kindof like the day offs a little. I get so much accomplished and get to do what I want. Sing a little Areosmith as loud as I want, watch Dancing with the Stars & John & Kate plus Eight. You know, do my own thing. Much I want to get accomplished in this little thirty-six hour window.
Yesterday, I started with going downtown for fingerprinting and signing papers to allow a background check (so if you background checkers are reading this..hello!). I am really wanting this job and I am another phase in getting closer to getting the job.
I love downtown. Working there again would be very nice. It has been years since working downtown and I think I would enjoy it (except for the parking and traffic).
I also listed a house. I know, you all thought I retired from the Real Estate biz, but occasionally I will get my feet wet with it. This is a friends home and so there I was writing the contracts, taking photos and sticking the signs in the ground. One of the things I had forgotten about with the business was what a pain directional signs are. I parked at a church, and walked through the mud to get to the corner of an intersection to place my little directional sign. Then it happened. A van with some hillbillies guys, whistled & told me, "Now, don't you fall in the mud Sweetie!". Okay, thanks. I am kindof flattered that they whistled and acknowledged me, but also grossed out. This listing took a good chunk of the afternoon.
Then off to the bank, take care of Sergio's little speeding ticket (what a good wife I am to deal with this little time consuming shit). And then back home to tie up some loose ends. But, I got caught in a couple of phone calls, that is okay. My fault and I loved to chat.
I ran out to meet with a Bestie, Ms Sheri. We tried to do a little shopping but two of the three shops we went to see have closed. Boo hoo. I wanted to take her to Steve & Barry's. They carry the Sarah Jessica Parker line and it is so inexpensive! Nothing over $20 dollars! Remember, job searching, lack of clothes that fit, etc. I can't go to an interview with a camel toe! I just need a couple of versatile pieces that can take me through a week.
We ended up going to a little place called "Bubbaz" for dinner. Finding a place that allows smoking is getting harder now a days and Sheri needs to have a smoke (she really does, that is okay!) Anyway, I was a little scared of this place. After we found a booth we realized the place was a gambling hall of some kind. I wondered if it was legal. They were gambling with chips not money so maybe for fun? Just what I need. The place to get busted. Explain that to the background checkers! "Really I just wanted a Tenderloin & glass of wine!"
After we left I got home in time to enjoy "Dancing with the Stars". I am so addicted. My favorite is Melissa from the Bachelor. Also Gilles is amazing to watch! I love Holly Maddison, although I fear her lack of confidence has put her back on the chopping block. Lil' Kim impressed the socks off me last night. I love to see big transformations. I want to see the double elimination this evening but will miss it because I agreed to work. I will have to pull it up on line tonight when I get off ) =
I ended the evening watching "John & Kate Plus Eight" and I am reading, Jodi Picoult's, "Handle With Care". great book and I am excited to be reading a real book again! Thanks Sheri!
I slept like a rock. Nearly 9 hours! (Sorry Natalie, I feel guilty). Lately I am sleeping like that. It's weird, I never use to sleep.
Well, it is nearly 11:30am and I have a shitload to do (sorry for the swear words I am a bit of a Sailor today!). There are errands to run, a house to clean, and I haven't gotten anything done. Sergio will be home soon & will think I spent all my time on the computer...HaHa
Sorry this posting was kindof boring. I guess it's good to be boring sometimes. Less drama!
Have a lovely day my friends!
