I am getting sick of candy. Me! Not interested in candy! Crazy. I was in CVS and thought, I don't want to buy more candy. I got sugar free mints and almonds instead.
I still like Kansas. Sigh.
I haven't decided if I'm going to the party on Saturday, but if I do, I'm wearing a shirt that shows cleavage.
I went to the Nats game with Pele on Friday. Nats won! Good fun.
When I was back in the office on Thursday, I ran into one of the cleaning ladies who is kind of my buddy. We only smile and say hi, but I have a warm, friendly feeling towards her. When she saw me, her face lit up. I thought, "She must have wondered what happened to me." I told her, "I was away…I'm on jury duty."
She said, in her slightly broken English, "Oh, I wonder. I ask the ladies in your office where you were. They say, you come back next week." And she beamed at me.
It was so nice of her. I was pleased that our smiling and nodding friendship is mutual.
On Friday I had a Very Important Meeting with my most difficult contractor. It went well, but I felt like I was fumbling around and a bit uncertain--not as present as I would like to be.
After the meeting, which my boss attended, we had a quick debriefing. He said, "It went well."
I said, "I agree."
He said, "You really are good."
I was surprised. "Really? I can't tell."
My boss tends to see the negative, so if he praises you, you know it's for real. It made my day…and more.
I want to be the foreperson for my jury. I can accept it if I'm not. But I'm not going to defer. If anyone suggests I do it, I'll accept.
Grateful for: days off.
