Life in the Fish Bowl


Stick a Fork In Me, Cause I'm Done

Oh my God. I am so very tired. My feet are throbbing, my ankles are swollen. I feel like I was run over by a car.

This sale is kicking my ass. Seriously.

I worked from a little after one until 7pm and I seriously considered just sleeping in my car. Or maybe even on the side walk so I didn't have to walk all the way to my car. I want to cry, but I am just too tired to do it.

And I still have to work tomorrow. And the next day. And two more days after that. And, and, and. I know I'm not supposed to start a sentence with and, but its my blog and I can if I want to. And you can get over it. Please.

Today was the last day before the sale opens to the public, which I understand is similar to the running of the bulls or being first in line at a general admission rock concert. I figured out long ago that I was to old for either of those things and I think I'm too old for this sale, too.

I'm really thinking going back to work might not be a bad thing. I am seriously missing being able to shop in a department store, pay full price and still buy groceries. My kid will survive without being with me all day, every day.

And he'll be damn well dressed doing it.

The size of that sale is just rediculous. O have never seen anything like that. I bet you are worn out. And it hasn't even opened to the public yet? That is just crazy. I bet you are ready to go back to work.

Hope your remaining shifts pass quickly! I can relate to the exhaustion part.

I was an English teacher. And, I have no problem with beginning a sentence with a conjunction. Many of the old rules are relaxed. Like ending a sentence with a preposition & beginning w/conjunctions. I think Pumpkin will enjoy hit new duds. You kick ass for working so much to properly outfit him.

I was thinking I might volunteer to work at our consignment sale next year. Maybe that's not such a good idea.

Hope you survive, we'll miss your blogs if you don't!
