…the behinder I get! LOL
It’s been a crazy couple of days here lately, and I’m falling behind on just about everything. I have promised myself that I will not allow the blog to die an untimely death, so here’s an entry such as it is. Might not be my best post to date, but hey…it’s a post. 🙂
I am running about a week behind on commission work. I really, really hate it when that happens. I pride myself on staying on top of my commissions so that fabulous clients don’t think their doll projects have been forgotten. And when I do fall behind, I try to communicate about it. I haven’t been able to do that either! So, I am going to have to apologize. If you’re waiting on me or expecting to hear from me, please hang in there and keep the faith! I haven’t forgotten you!
I lost half a day yesterday because we went out of town and didn’t get back until bedtime. The first half of today was spent at a memorial celebration for the woman who gave me my first job. It was really my second job, but I try to forget the two months of agony I spent as a prep cook for Popeye’s Chicken. :::shudder::: Shirley hired me to drive a rickety ol’ van to deliver flowers for her flower shop. I was 16, and the valley was a tad less populated than it is now. It was a part-time job, and the starting hourly pay was below minimum wage. I reported to work after school an worked til the flowers were all delivered. I was also in charge of tidying the show room and watering the plants. I also had the job of cleaning the cooler. Shirley eventually taught me to design floral arrangements, and I took to that like a duck takes to water. I was in heaven! I worked for her almost up until I got married. She was a big part of my life. It was difficult to say good-bye. My eyes are still swollen. But, she is always with me and has been throughout the years. Whenever I arrange flowers or trim thorns off a rose stem, I think of Shirley. What a wonderful way to remember a friend. 🙂
And so now, I’m blogging, but after I post this entry, I’m getting back to work! I have a man doll to paint. All I managed to do on him yesterday was to paint the whites of his eyes. So…it is with those ghoulish, white, empty eyes that he stares at me. I know what he’s thinking, and it’s not good. LOL
Stay tuned! Hopefully, I’ll have something to post tomorrow about my work space. Have a blessed day/night!
