I thought I do an entry now since I'm sitting around and basically not doing much.  I've been trying to catch up on journal reading and, of course, can't resist playing in PSP.  I'm still not quite caught up with the journals but figure I should be by tomorrow.  I was doing housework in between all of the above.

I had to hang around the house all day today waiting for the Sears repair guy to show up.  It could have been any time between 8-5 p.m.  Of course, he called right before 5 and said he was on his way.  He just left.  My compressor is just about shot.  Sheesh...it's still under warranty but he said he rarely has ever seen a compressor go bad in AC's.  Refrigerators all the time; AC's next to never.  Makes me feel real good about this AC of mine.  I am only beginning my 4th summer of running it.  This is the second major repair.  He will be back on June 13th so I need my BF over here to let him in.  LOL...another good thing about having him retired.

I'm preparing myself mentally for my new job.  I'm not sure why I let myself get this anxious about it.  I've gone back to some ancient techniques that I learned years ago when I had panic attacks and suffered from depression.  Basically, asking myself what is the very worst that could happen and things like that.  When I start imagining the worst that could happen, I almost laugh because when you actually make a list of things and read it, it's so off the wall.  I call it putting things in the proper perspective.  Like I said, it's been eons since I've actually had to do this.

I did buy myself some new clothes with my personal shopper, Megan.  We went to Target.  I found some lovely dress suits on sale and some nicer tops and, of course, some pointy leather pumps that are actually comfortable and don't make my feet look like the Queen Mary.  I think tomorrow, I just might lay my wardrobe out and take a picture for you all to see.  I haven't been able to wear nicer things in a long while because the nature of my past job ruined things.....staples got stuck in them, I got caught in cabinets, stuck in piles of folders, Sharpie marks all over everything, etc. etc.

Tonight is Day's Inn night.  I haven't been out for a couple of weekends and am looking forward to kicking my heels up a bit. 

Have a good one all!!!!!!

Chris, I understand about the nerves of a job change. I hope my stomach isn`t flip-flopping when I return to work. Nice to hear you are going out...have fun! Love the new sidebar, looks great. Is it possible for you to make me a Penny with the butterfly flying around my name like yours? That is so-ooo cute. Oooh, I bet your new clothes are great! That should make you feel good about your new position at work. :)
Love ya--

Chris,  At least the compressor did not go out in the middle of an August heat wave!  Ours did the second month after buying our first house.  No warranty!  I learned the thrills of owning a house the hard way.  It must be a good night for going out.  We all went up to the Gold Hill Inn for dirnks after dinner.  I could have sworn I saw you at the bar!  LOL   I was sitting there thinking how much I would like to share the experience with my J-land friends.  Smiles, David
