I know I know…where on Earth have I been, right?! Well lets see the past few weeks have been INSANE (I did mention before that July and August are my busiest months)! I have become the school supplies queen, a once a week personal chef for the b.f.s parents (and you probably thought I hadn’t been cooking) and a professional goat hairstylist. This upcoming week will finish off my busy season before the holidays hit. I have fair =D I love fair. I love everything about fair! The greasy, fattening food, the cheesy decorated trash cans but I love the animals the most! I will be taking seven of my lovely beastly girls with me; Angel, Ragtime, Tiki, Eclipse, Spectrolite, Lucky2B and Halo. I will have tons of pictures to share (I already have a ton to share but I have had no editing time). But back to my new titles.
So I work in the electronic and office supply section at a local supermarket. We all know what office supplies scream this time of the year, BACK TO SCHOOL! Since the middle of July I have stocked so many note books, crayons, markers, pens and pencils that I want to stab myself in the eye with a pencil. If I smell another crayon I may gag. It is a busy time of the year and I don’t always have the patience to deal with people and their sob stories about how we ran out of…well anything really! My boss seems to have gotten it in his head that I am in charge of the supplies, which includes that back stock of them and making sure the floor is stocked full. He by the way almost had a heart attack when I told him I was going on vacation this week. I have faith that they can make it without me for a week, I never said I was the queen but some want to think I am.
The past three weeks I have taken it upon myself to buy ingredients and prepare a meal for my boyfriend’s parents to take some stress off of them. They seem to have enjoyed! I don’t know what there is not enjoy about it, it’s like going to a restaurant. So, soon (I hope) I will have some recipes and pictures to share on what I have been preparing for them.
In order for my girls to go to fair they must have a hair cut. Oh they absolutely love it (this my sarcastic tone)! Well, some like it more than others. It isn’t any fun for me when it is 90+ degrees outside, you’re getting slapped in the face by a goat tail and you are covered everywhere by hair slivers. Do you know what a hair sliver is? They are awful! Tiny little pieces of hair sticking you in the insides of your elbows, or down you bra or up your nose. It’s the worst part of fair. But really most of my girls are princesses and just stand there so I can hurry up and get it done. Others (Ragtime!) scream and yell like they are being killed and stepping on your fingers, yeah great fun. My poor babies Halo and Lucky, they were so good for their first hair cuts except they screamed the whole time. Lucky, well she is very flighty, she had a near death experience late this spring. But she stood like a champ, Halo on the other hand did good but I really think she believed she was going to die. But we all made it through and off to fair we head!
That’s a enough rambling for this time, I have more to share but this is enough for now. I have to go find some time to sleep.
