It's been a long stretch. I'm still working on that essay. I should finish it this afternoon. I've got the next three days off work, and I need them. I'm working on another school presentation. I'm tired all the time, but I keep telling myself that it is coming down to the final stretch. After Thanksgiving break, the semester will be nearly over. Today, we will be meeting our advisor for Spring 2011 placement. Seems impossible.
You know what I love? I had a customer who had two sacks of feed and a myriad of small things. I rang up his purchase, he paid, he left. He came back in with his receipt, and a package of chainsaw files. He came up to me with a shamefaced look, and said, "This fell inside the cart. You didn't see them. I forgot I had them." I love that there are people in the world like that.
Know what else I love? I got two packages in the mail yesterday, both from Australia. I got BB's calendar. She included post cards, including one of my favorite pictures. I also got a book from Ro (aka Jayne), who describes herself as the mad cow. (Heh. I've got your address now, Ro.) Thank you both very much. It was a treat to open those packages. I love that there are people in the world like you.
Well, let me get this day under way.
Late edit: Is there anyone else in this world who forgets to start the dryer after switching loads? I would really feel much better to find out there are people like that in the world. Jayne? Now is not the time to tell me about how you handwash your clothing. Really. Remember that I have your address now.
