Peaceful Easy Feeling

Towards town around ten this morning

The dishwasher is running, the Amazon is at work and dogs are napping here and there around the house.

It's quiet.

While the peacefulness of the holler is usually my biggest complaint, today it's welcomed. I honestly didn't think I would make it through the past week at the Asylum without having at least one tear filled whine fest.. but I did. We ended up getting that $8k order yesterday afternoon, but not before involving several people, some yelling and more phone calls than I care to count. We're only "making" $1K on the order. It doesn't hardly seem worth it.

Oh.. Bossman will be getting an earful Monday morning.

The grand total for the week was nearly $100K. The GM threatened to tell Bossman to take another week off since I seem to book more when I'm left alone. The GM doesn't know how close he came to death or at least.. dismemberment.. when he made that comment.

I came home yesterday to find that the Amazon had vacuumed, spot cleaned the carpet and she had dinner waiting for me.. which is a good thing since there wasn't a chance in hell I would be cooking when I got home.

Anywho... I'm too pooped to be witty this morning. I'll check back in later, after I've spent an embarrassingly slothful day, doing nothing more stressful than moving from the couch to the computer.. just in case something exciting happens on one of the half gazillion social networks I seem to think I have to keep up with.

Ya'll have a good one.

Later Taters!

Give the Amazon a kiss from me, for being so sweet to her mama.

Amen to slothfulness...I got up at 7 am, was up for maybe half an hour and then went back to bed until nearly noon....rare. But worth it. Life has been entirely too stressful lately.

love the Amazon. May I borrow her to train my 8 year old?

Enjoy your quiet day. It's only sloth if you don't bathe and the laying around lasts more than a week.

Otherwise, it's called recovery or vacation.

You mean some people get off the couch on the weekends? Nothing embarrassing about it at all!

I don't think it's embarassing at all.

I took a look at that picture at the top of the post and it reminded me of wher eI used to live - in a little rural town in the White Mountains. So pretty! It made me nostalgic!
