The Land Of Hardly Working

I have become a lady of leisure. I get all prettied up and go to work for about 6 hours a week.
When I'm there, I have to psych myself up to convince people they need to start buying HOLIDAY PRODUCTS! Because C'MON PEOPLE, IT'S OCTOBER!!

I haven't posted about what I'm doing with all my free time. I confess, I'm not doing much of anything with my free time. I'm about 4 feet into knitting a scarf for Cape Cod Kid. He's 6'3" tall, so I'm guessing the scarf will have to be about 8 feet long to wrap around twice and reach his waist.

The TV is on for at least 15 hours a day. I'm all caught up on All My Children and One Life To Live. I saw Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal on Oprah and remembered my 7th Grade self and my best 7th Grade friend, Susan, holding hands and weeping in the movie theater in 1970.

We made a late night trip to Sorority Girl's house so her daddy could plunge the toilet. That's 2 hours of our lives we'll never get back!

Mr Sunshine took me on an adventure the other day. He asked me to take a ride to the farm market. The next time we go, I'm taking pictures of all the things that skeeve me out in the meat market.
I figured we'd be home in about 90 minutes. HA!!
First we went to the big giant car wash, then we hit a traffic snarl on I-4, got off the highway and waited for a VERY.....LONG.....TRAIN to pass, wound our way through the city and hit the market.
On the way home we found ourselves in another huge traffic snarl on I-4. It turned out to be a 30 mile back-up because a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and flipped his semi. We got off the highway again, stopped for lunch and finally got home about 4 hours after we left the house!

Tonight, SG and I are going to a 31 Purses party I'll let you know if I get anything cute.

I have no free time, yesterday was a "sick" day so I could catch up on all my TIVO recordings before they were going to be deleted.

I'm glad to hear that, unlike me, you're generally managing to stay out of the craft store. :-)

Oh! Love Story...I could recite EVERY LINE.

Hey, I'm glad to hear the toilet cleared! And October is TOO early for holiday products, I'd be struggling, too!
Enjoy your purse party.

There are PURSE parties? That's just cruel...I would have to leave my checkbook at home. Holidays what?

Hmm, I like buying holiday stuff in October. I should come shop in your store. And I love a good purse! Post what you got if anything!

Spending some time as a lady of leisure sounds rather enticing right now. The traffic jam? Not so much.
