Bagel Wednesday

Life is cruising along fast. I can’t tell you how much I look forward to Wednesday Bagel Day.

I know some people do, but I don’t have treats every day because then they aren’t so much like treats.  Bagels are one of those things. I hardly ever eat them at home, so it is a real treat twice a week to look forward to.  Having them planned in makes it easier to stay on track with my eating knowing those are coming up.  Cupcakes are like that as well. Pretty much only on long ride days or a rare occasion. Makes them taste better 😀

It’s also nice to be out. When you work at home, it’s easy to forget there is a world out there sometimes LOL!

We have a little over 3 weeks until our vacation and I need it so bad. It’s been a couple years since I have had more than a long weekend off from work. That’s scary.  My peeve now is that in July… JULY… I told my account supervisor that I was going to be on vacation and wanted someone else added to one particular account — of which I am the only one working it. That means if I don’t do the work, it doesn’t get done. So I asked for help just on that basis, but also because I’m going to be gone. Every 2 weeks when I submitted my lines, I asked for an update. Still haven’t found anyone. Here it is almost September and they still have not gotten anyone on the account. I don’t understand this because the other MTs are complaining that work is slow.  Hello?? The new person has to get trained on the software and all that before I’m gone. This is going to be a problem for them because I will not be working or even answering the phone/email from work for the whole week. It’s not my problem. Thank goodness it’s in the works for me to be leaving there.

Anyhoo – shall I share another annoyance? The espresso machine went on the fritz today. We’ve had this 4 or 5 years? I can’t remember. It was sent for service once and has been fine, but now all the lights are blinking and it won’t do anything.

Lori is an unhappy camper with that.  At least I have the Aeropress so I can make a pseudo latte.  Later I will have to look at the manual and see what’s up.

My big show is coming up in 2-1/2 weeks (the week before our vacation) and a lot of soaps are being boxed and labeled plus new products.  I need a lot of add-on stuff to cover a wider range of people since the booth was kind of pricey.  So, I’m doing some potpourri.  Some matching scents to soap and others just fun stuff like rose:

And a Pumpkin Patch one (won’t show that because Labor Day hasn’t passed yet 😀 ).  I’m also hiring my niece to help out on Saturday, which will be the busiest day.  Lots of stuff to do between now and then.

    I don’t think I’ve mentioned it but I almost always have a bagel after my weekly long run. Truly, they have so many calories it feels like that’s the only time I can really justify one without cutting out too much other food. Because, who wants to cut out other food? LOL.

    You are busy leading up to the vacation! I guess that will make you appreciate the R&R even more.
