friday afternoon delirium

This is going to be a random post. I'm sort of tired, yet wired; therefore, delerious. The day started out being a low self esteem day, but now it's just one of those days where I can't stop laughing about the state of things. Mostly because Mary and I usually can't stop laughing about everything that happens at the office, thank God for her (and thank God for Sam....haha.)

Soooo..... I got my oil changed today and of course I got the call that I needed some sort of leak repaired or I would have major damage soon. The price for those repairs...$1200. I asked, can I still drive it for a while, the answer was yes and so that means the answer is no to the repairs. Why is it that it's impossible to just get an oil change? Something else is always wrong. I guess it probably is possible that your car is fine when it isn't 10 years old...whatever, I love my car and it's leaking parts.

Something else fun that's happened today is that Mary and I arrived at work at 7 a.m. so that we could leave at 3 p.m. YET, I'm still here and Mary didn't leave til 4:00. Why you may ask? Well, I'll tell you. While everyone else in corporate America gets up on Monday ready to hit it hard and gets to the office bright and early-- my boss, gets in Monday AND everyday between 10 and 11, eats lucnch, does whatever, usually leaves by 2 or 3...3 is pushing it. It's usually not 3. Yes, this makes my job easier being that I'm his assistant, but it's like I'm so used to this schedule that when it's altered, especially on a Friday when I've been counting his early departure, I am baffled by his sudden devotion to work at 3:30 on a Friday? I want to shout, "Leave! Please leave!!" Now, he's left and I'm sitting her blogging......4:37....ppppfffffttttttttt. Fridays....I'm burnt out this Friday and I can pinpoint what it is exactly that I'm burnt out of, but I just need some sort of rejuventation? A deep breath is all I'm going to get right now because I'm about to get on the road for the 5 hour joy ride to Lubbock, Texas. Little sister is moving into the dorms tomorrow! Oh to be young again.....

Small wedding update and vent. I can't seem to pick an invitation. Everything that I love is too expensive and everything that isn't too expensive I wrinkle my nose to. I love paper and stationary, but these are things that you can cut the price on. Why is cutting the price on things never fun? I sound spoiled. I am spoiled! I'm getting my dream wedding in Santa Fe to my dream lover (ha, painfully chesey), why do I insist on dream invitations too? Count your blessings, Alexis, count them...there are millions. I haven't picked out a cake yet either? Oh well, we'll get there, we'll get there.....I read on the Martha Stewart wedding blog today, that it's all about the details. Oh the details....if only I could figure out the big things first.

There are always decisions to make in everyone's life, whatever they are for you, small or big, may they enhance your life in some form or fashion. Okay, that's all the insight that I can muster in this state of mind.....

Time to hit the road, pray for my little sister as she approaches this fantastic time in live!!

Have a great weekend....xo

I just re-read this. How pointless...oh well....oh well. pppppfffffffttttt.
