Dyson Vacuum In Flight: Afternoon Delight!
At the beginning of this summer, I crafted a master list of all the tasks and projects that I wanted to get done by Labor day. Call it whatever you like, ("Horseshit that my PA should be doing" is what I call it), it is an ever-changing list that I live by every summer. This year it included over 20
boring jobs items such as the following:
Paint entire main floor of rooms inc. trim work.
Switch out all outlet covers (old ones were yellowed)
Install shelves and crown moulding
Clean and organize lower level.
S.O.B. item took me ALL SUMMER LONG to complete. Today it is 90% done (exception is getting my fashion styling clothes and accessories collection shelved and hung in a spare closet. I think that can be done over a bad-weather weekend)
Whatever, let's get to the fun rehash of today's basement-cleaning festival. Lisa, my sister, came down around 10 am and she spotted my vintage silver and fur boots on top of a bag of fashion shoot gear. She couldn't kick off her sandals fast enough! All of the sudden she demanded for me to take pictures in the boots.
|"Look what I can do- KICK!"- Lisa.|
Apparently, silver boot time was not over yet. This time it lasted even longer.
|In progress: a Green Bay Packers "Overcharmed" charm bracelet I was making for her friend's birthday|
I took my spoils. I mean, I paid for them and everything. But after all of that work, I splurged on an icy fountain Coke and some snacks. Bowling Alley Food Snack! Lisa bought me some Gold Rush gum (the nuggets in that little canvas drawstring bag as a reward).
LESSON: Sometimes all we need is someone to jump in and help you finish a big job. It's kind of the best gift in the world.
