The perfect nail polish!

I found a new nail polish last night at Albertson's when P and I stopped on the way home "just to pick up a few things" (funny how that always turns into major grocery shopping) and it is just the PERFECT shade, I have decided! It's awesome. It's a very pale shade of matte pink called Sheer Summer Blossom, by Sally Hansen, and it just looks great. It's got just the right amount of color to it to cover and look like I'm wearing nail polish, but is sheer enough that you can still see the white of my nail through it. It's very delicate, pretty, and really achieves the look of a French manicure without going to the trouble with the nail guides. I love it.

It doesn't take much to make me happy, I suppose.

So, no journal entry last night, the time we got home from the gym/grocery store, it was 10:30, 11 by the time I ate, and then I spent the last hour doing laundry, checking email and turning my nails into Sheer Summer Blossom beauties. It's okay though...I didn't have much to say anyway. I spent most of the day at the office sitting in my cube listening to my mp3 player and working away diligently. Today, pretty much the same...although I had the pleasure of writing my estimate in front of C for that fire the other day and dazzling her at how fast I can write estimates. Little does she know that she will be equally as fast in about six months...just takes some getting used to knowing the codes in our computer program. You can only type PNT B2 so many times before you start memorizing that it is the abbreviation for paint baseboards with two coats of paint! Anyway, it would have been an even more productive day if I hadn't been trapped by my boss at her desk for an hour trying to figure out a mess of an estimate that T wrote before jetting to Florida to play in the hurricanes. Oh, well. I do think C learned a lot today from watching me write my estimate, and she's sufficiently intimidated, but that's okay...I was intimidated too when I started doing this last summer. I think it's good to start out intimidated so you're not overly confident and try to go too fast...because that's when you make dumb mistakes.

One question I would love the answer to is when am I going to get to stitch again? I can't believe I haven't stitched since Saturday! *sigh* I'm thinking that this is just a busy time right now and it'll get least, it has to! At least tomorrow is Friday!

Memes, memes, memes!!!! Two days worth!

Okay, on that note, it's time for me to go to bed! I'm tired yet again and tomorrow's going to be a full day of work. Blah. But at least I have a sushi date with S and C. Sushi Friday...that's starting to be a weekly thing with me!
