Sorry for the lack of posting (that is a popular way to start a blog).
Work has been exceptionally stressful. Way more stressful than a retail job should be. This is not good because I am a stress eater, and I realize now that I was consuming large amounts of sugar (my drug of choice). So, this week I have 2 days off in a row (a rarity in retail) and what happens on the second day? Bang!!!!! The universe hits me with a monster head cold or flu or walking pneumonia --- I can't tell the difference between any of these! Subconsciously, I must have know that this was on the horizon because on the way home from work before my days off I picked up the fixings for lentil vegetable soup (I never crave soup). The good news is that I haven't had any sugar since Friday. In fact I don't even want to eat the soup. I am so wore down that I just want to be fed intravenously!!
So, more book posts are coming and even some sewing posts. Still not in the mood to sew, but I am going to NYC in a couple weeks to see the Color Purple before Fantasia takes her last bow in February (have to go now because in retail you can't have any time off between Thanksgiving and New Years), and I have no clothes!! I mean that literally. My wardrobe looks like the clothes of a Starbucks barista (cuz that is our dress code) - khakis and black polo shirts. I don't know how to dress that up. I don't even have a little black dress or a skirt that fits, so I gotta get sewing.
Book posts coming up - Them by Nathan McCall, I Am America, And So Can You by Stephen Colbert and a couple others.
Stay with me y'all!!!! (That's from me & Britney S.)
