T Minus 6 days, 20 hours, 37 minutes : but whose counting

Yesterday morning I was just taking it easy with my day before heading to work. I had no particular plans.

Then I got a text message from the boss lady who wanted me to come in a bit early.

In the mean time I was watching twitter feed new posts pretty frequently of The Hubby trying to wedge the jeep into the shipping containment. That was nuts! I will get to watch him unload it in a few weeks.

I was thinking about how it would be a long day at work... But the AC in the gallery is quirky and has condensation leaks in a few places in the gallery. One of those places is over a koa woodwork display, and the boss lady put a vase where most of the drippage occurs to catch it. Yesterday someone picked up the vase to see its price and spilled the water all over many koa pieces... The good news is she bought the vase.

While cleaning up the water I saw where some of the pieces were getting ruined by the water. I took it upon myself to switch the koa display with a pottery display. At least pottery is naturally water proof. I'll probably get hell for taking liberty like that, but I bet the owner will appreciate my actions.

So that process, which also involved cleaning the shelves, took up over half of the shift.

Sales weren't bad but weren't good either. It is like working for tips, you can't expect or count on them.

When I got home my neighbor was outside. I talked to her for a few minutes and then I decided to ask her if she had a table lamp I could borrow. Turns out the last resident of this condo asked her the same thing and so she let me use the same lamp. How funny is that. So I have light in my bedroom again. It has a 60 watt bulb in it, brighter than I'm used to for bedside light.

Having light last night didn't do much for me. I got home at 10pm and just went to bed. But tomorrow on my day off, I'll be glad to have it if I'm being artful into the evening hours.



  1. Seems that it's under a week now, but I'm not counting... ;)

  2. I'll count for all of us coach! Heck the hubby is counting down the hours!
