Hello my blog friends!
It has been a long time since I worked full time outside the home. I'd forgotten how tired one can get, arriving home and still having dishes and laundry waiting. I skipped a night when I was very tired so I had extra dishes and laundry last night. While I accept help with the dishes, I do not ask the guys for help with the laundry. Otherwise I could end up with a load of formerly white clothes now pink. :)
Dinners have been drive-thru or simple sandwiches made at home. So much for nutrition. This time it is temporary so we will survive. :)
Sigh... I would also love to work at a bookstore under different circumstances. However, these two weeks are crazy with thousands of students coming through spending hundreds of dollars on textbooks. Some are in shock at the prices (or their parents are standing their with open mouth and credit card in hand as I give them their totals). It is not uncommon to ring up a total of $500 to $900, especially for the textbooks of science and engineering students.
When I tell them I am working these two weeks to pay for textbooks, they know I feel their pain. Next week will be even busier with over twenty cash registers going at one time, at least on Monday thru Thursday.
I arrived home last night to find a much anticipated box waiting on my porch. A special blog friend has sent me a DIGITAL CAMERA! If she will give me permission, I will share who it is that is making it possible for me to add more pictures. I can't say it is her "old" camera as it is still quite nice but she purchased a brand new one and sent me the camera she was using. I will have fun with it... next weekend!
I'm hoping to share Sunday Afternoon Tea tomorrow. After that, I'll only be able to "pop in" perhaps once or twice until next Saturday. I can do this... it is only for two weeks and I'm half way through it already! It is taking some financial pressures off the family added by the cost of junior college classes... that is what is important. I will add just a few more favorites to the side bar next week.
It was quite hot last week but this weekend is cooler (if you can call highs in the 80s "cool"). With the football season starting for local high schools last night, I can already feel autumn not too far in the distance. This has been one very hot summer so I am ready! Of course, I am always ready for sweater weather.
