Shoes Make Me Smile

Well... I haven't quite gotten to that really great feeling when everything is done. But alas, I am experiencing exquisite joy from finding some beautiful summer sandals that will look so lovely with the clothes from 2 summers ago that fit me once again. Yipee! My favorites are a sizzlin hot red pair of saucy sandals, I'm gonna wear them with a sheer red frilly shirt and denim skirt. I just can't wait! Seeing that I woke up to snow on the ground, I may have to wait a while, but like all things, the anticipation is priceless.
Weekend complete, work to be done - optional... sort of... OK, so it's going to be a long night. I can do what I have to do in my new sandals and that will make it fun... right?

Sunny Saturday Mornings

I woke up earlier than I expected, but I've had a great morning of reading articles and basically lounging around. I'm just about to get into work mode, I'm just enjoying a few last minutes of "relaxation"... ah...
I think I may have just had my last round in the ring with my ex. I took him to the Court of Appeals, muchos stress and work, and I think something finally clicked in his little pea brain. It would be great to start off a week without the bruises and battle marks of divorce. I really can't believe it's taken so long and taken so much out of me. It will be 5 years in just over a month. It took us just a few minutes to get married and so long to dissolve. As soon as I get one particular fax, I will file a Discontinuance Order and drop my appeal. I've been representing myself and I swear, in another lifetime or maybe later in life, I will get my law degree and help women through this process so tyrannical greedy men cannot continue to take advantage and exploit.
Mmmm, coffee's done. Time to get to work. All I can think about is how great it is going to feel when it's all done.

Password Police - Where are you?

Someone was seriously trying to get my password for Blogger... I've had many problems over the last little while. Hopefully, everything has settled down and those responsible are willing to leave me alone in my little space in the Land of Blog.

I'm sitting here, waiting for my car to be fixed... again... sheesh... it's just about that time and I'm not going gently into that good night. I need my car to last a couple more years, but I'm not convinced we're going to make it. The car-fix-it-place was supposed to have my car done by noon, so I went there to pick it up and the guy at the counter said... oh, it's in a thousand pieces right now. I responded with my classic "no". (As if that's going to change anything.) I says, no, I just got myself all the way over here and I'm not going to sit and wait 2 to 3 hours for something you promised me would be ready half an hour ago. So they drove me home and they will come pick me up when my car is ready. So here I sits and waits...

UPDATE: Well, they picked me up, they even took the time to wash my car, and they took an additional 10% off. Ah, my sweet little pink shirt worked it's charms.

Relaxation Setting In...

Ah... the warm sleep buzz from finishing that second glass of wine. How sweetly I sigh. The week is done and I can look forward to waking to my own clock tomorrow morning with 2 free days to actually get some things accomplished. I'm so excited.

The cutest guy just came to my door, someone had called a taxi but he went to the wrong address. Wish I had finished my third glass and maybe I would have been a bit quicker on the draw. Man oh man he was fine. Do you know how long it's been since I've even noticed an attractive man? Where have I been? (Don't answer that.) I'm getting closer to being able to approach that part of my life again. I need a couple more months to finish setting up house and getting settled at work. I want a summer filled with BBQs, golf, camping, fishing, watching movies in a cool basement, warm summer breezes through an open window. More importantly, I want someone to share these things with completely. Completely in the sense that I have my direction in my career and homelife and I am almost ready.


P.S. Thank you anonymous cab driver for letting me see the woman in me in the mirror again.

I'm still here...

Thanks for checking back. I'm still here. Tryin to keep on keepin on (stole this line from Joe Dirt - great movie). I'm still flailing around trying to get too many things done in too little time. Still looking forward to a moment of reprieve. Still lovin work and lovin my new house. For a task-oriented-over-achiever, I'm just a little flury of fuss moving from one thing that needs to be done to another. Every night I try to convince myself that this is the night I stay up until everything just gets done... thank goodness my body takes over sometimes and I crash and sleep and sleep and sleep.
Sending everyone smiles...
