Where has the week gone?

I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted a fresh blog! Monday, I went to my first inventory at another store. It really made me appreciate MY store! My dyslexia threw me for a couple of loops... 893001 looks exactly like 890031 to my brain. I discovered that clutching a clipboard in one hand and a pencil in the other for six and a half hours really makes my hands hurt!
 But we muddled through. This coming Monday, I go to South Fayetteville to count parts.

Tuesday was a long day on the job. Today was shorter... but then we went to the Library for the boys volunteer day. After the library, we headed to Hobby Lobby, where Daniel and Sam chose and purchased fabric for new cloaks. They picked out a lightweight black denim.

Brother XL2600I Sew Advance Sew Affordable 25-Stitch Free-Arm Sewing MachineMy new sewing machine arrived here at the house shortly after we got back from town. the boys were as anxious as I was to set it up and give it a test run. Their fabric is in the washing machine, getting "shrunk". After their cloaks are done, I will try to finish the baby dress I started back in the Spring... or was it Summer? I hope it will still fit Kimber. Babies grow so fast! Once I finish it, I am going to try matching dresses for Kimber and Nickole. I have a cute cow print. Maybe I can add cow print vests for Tyrel and Gavin? (I doubt I could stuff Connor and Alana into cutesy little matching clothes if I tried all day!)

Right now, I have some lentils on to cook for supper. I started out sauteeing chopped bacon, onions, and garlic until the bacon was done. Then added chicken broth, water, and the rinsed dry lentils. It smells wonderful in here.

Laundry is now drying. I fully intended to get my uniform shirts washed Tuesday.
It .did .NOT. happen.

You would think that with the time change, extra hour of sleep and all that... I would be all rested up and perky. Nope. My brain is still set on getting me up at the "old" time... so I am awake by 3:30 in the morning. Combine that with very strange, vivd dreams... and I was in bed before 7:00 last night. Can't even remember eating supper, although I am sure I must have. (Actually, I think I headed to be a few minutes after 6:00pm).

The laundry didn't get done, which, in turn, left me scrambling for a clean work shirt this morning. I had to settle for a T Shirt with O'Reilly's logo on it. And had to get THAT from Mr C. I wore a pair of work pants left from my Eagle days... which had been set aside because I was too fat for them. (Shameless brag: They were BAGGY on me today!!!)

Sigh. Guess I have things to do here that I can't do sitting here typing. have a blessed afternoon!
