So much for enjoying that slow pace.  I left the house this morning at 5:45 and returned just short of 12 hours later.  It was a long day.  Happily I don’t have to be in early tomorrow because I don’t think I can catch up on sleep overnight.  The decor in my office still leaves a little something to be desired.  Everyone else in the office seems to find my makeshift desk incredibly amusing, lots of gentle ribbing.  It is gentle and it is just ribbing, right?  Hopefully the permanent one will show up soon.  I’ve forgotten one woman’s name.  I was hoping that I’d overhear someone saying it but it’s been a couple of days now and no luck.  I’m thinking I’m going to have to swallow my pride a little and ask someone.  Other than that, I’d say things are going pretty well.  

I found some fabric for the house that would make a good curtain for the back door.  The cheapo blinds that have been up there since we moved in need to come down BUT the only idea I can come up with as a replacement is a little roman shade.  The problem is that I don’t feel like making a roman shade.  Maybe I’m just too tired to think about it.  I’m a few minutes away from thinking that just taping some fabric up over the window is a good idea.  

There’s nothing on tv tonight (well, except for the convention) so I’m going to read this month’s issue of Better Homes and Gardens that showed up in my mailbox yesterday.  I think it was a gift from our mail carrier.  It has no mailing label on it so it wasn’t delivered to the wrong address, anyway, what’s that they say?  Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth?  Maybe I’ll find some inspiration in there.

Well that’s about it for tonight.  I’m going to eat the last lemon bar.  Mmm… lemon bars.
