I've spent two days spinning my wheels.
I am an idiot. I signed up for the Chamber's "Girls Night Out" event -- not as a spectator -- but as a stop. Which entails several hundred wandering women -- roaming the streets looking for goodies/treats/food/alcohol (and not in that order). So if several hundred women will be wandering thru ...
this old shack needs a facelift. Painting Diva Jackie was here Sunday -- my office is looking very chic in my favorite color green. I managed to fit most of the shit, oops stuff back into this 12 x 12 room. I've been cleaning / tossing / purging all week long. I've re-hung pictures, quilts, vac'd corners that I didn't know I had. And then I started on the forest (weeds) growing in the flower beds. Only the "front" yard will get completed. I'm tired. I'm crabby and fairly soon I will not give a hoot.
the most important thing -- the treats -- marble cake with buttercream frosting ... I assumed my friends at the college would be too busy so I had to order it from the store -- still might order some college carrot cake later -- it's all FABULOUS ... when I don't have to bake it.
and thru all this prep work -- I'm trying to work ... I tell ya, peeps, I'm nuts .... retirement should be relaxing!
