Jello Brain

ARGH! As I suspected, I've had a crazy-busy couple of work days. On Wednesday, I took a "lunch break" from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. to attend the monthly Thimbleberries Club meeting and then went back to the office to work until a little bit before 2 a.m. My boss and I both left at the same time, and we were both back at work a little before 9:30 this morning. AND I just got home around 10 p.m. tonight.

And on Wednesday? I was only a half hour short of making up the time I missed by taking Tuesday off for Hubby's surgery; but then I'd already worked more than that half hour in overtime on Monday. I think, though, that the crazy hours are over for now, as the last of the big projects we've had the last couple weeks is nearly ready to go out the door tomorrow.

On the positive side, I'll have a little extra in my paycheck at some point, which will come in quite handy because THIS Saturday I'm going on a little shop hop excursion up to Paradise (yes, there really IS a Paradise in California, and of course it has a couple quilt shops!) and Chico with five of my closest quilting friends. Yeah!

Right now, though, I think my brain has turned into soft-set Jello, so I'm just going to take a nice, hot bath and go to bed to read--this:

Bet you're jealous, aren't you?! I just wish I could sleep in tomorrow, but it's back to work again for one more day.

I so identify with the jello brain sentiment. Tired here (and I haven't even been working on any big projects!)

I just finished the union quilters. It was a great read. Hope you get some me time sounds as if you have been a very busy lady working all hours.

Goodness. I would be dead on my feet. I hope the bath and read were relaxing and you drifted right off to La La land.

I have been to Paradise, CA. When I was round 12 (am now 70) my family visited friends there for several weeks. Don't remember anything about the town...the friends lived in the woods & I don't think we ever went to town!

YOU are NOT soft set jello - you are Crème brûlée ... yep, that's what YOU are ... (did you notice all those doohickies over the letters? am i good at copy/paste, or what?!?)

i just finished a big book with three of the little Elm Creek books in it, so i am good for now ... too much of a good thing, you know

word ver is lizer ... like LIZER Minnelli ... or zee liar ... or lizer and onions

Sounds like you need a little more than a shop hop to recover from the last couple of weeks at work and hubby's surgery. Take care.

Oh my gosh, my brain would be the runny jello! ;-) I hope you enjoyed your bath and book~ I haven't read that one yet, do you like it? Have a happy weekend!
