Distraction

I have to post quickly today. Less time than usual this a.m. before work.

I have so many random thoughts skittering across my brain like so many dry leaves.

It's been such a busy week. Full from the start, till I lay my head on the pillow at night.

I'm aching for some time alone. I'm feeling a little interaction overload.

Our salon Christmas party is this Saturday. I'm looking forward to it, but the last two years it's been scheduled on the one Saturday a month that I work. No biggie, (really) I just always arrive breathless after getting off, racing home to dress and driving an hour to the restaurant.

I've been breathless a lot lately. Racing against the clock everyday to stay on schedule. Dealing with mistakes in my schedule that mean I have to work in clients earlier or later or shorten lunch.

I really hope my client really is satisfied this time after tweaking that color one more time. whew!

When are we going to have time to decorate for Christmas? Of course, in my head I'm picturing carols playing in the background, cider simmering on the stove and a Christmas movie as a reward as we enjoy the fruits of our labor bathed in the glow of twinkle lights. Let's see if imagination becomes reality.

Can somebody stop the merry-go-round?

I want to get off.

Sometimes tossing our cookies makes us feel better when we're on the merry-go-round... just make sure you aim it at the one doing the spinning!

I decorated last Saturday when I was sick. My hubbie left and went to the casino (to chill out by himself). It was cold and raining and I had congestion with a dry cough so I decided it was a good time to decorate while I was stuck home. (How's that to destroy a pleasing Christmas atmosphere)?
