Fast Forward

Do you ever have a day where you feel you are on fast forward. I'm having one of those days.

It started yesterday. We had a sample sale here at work. All the fall and winter samples went on sale for staff to buy. We're talking $400 leather jackets for $50. I got a $200 ski jacket for $30. Insane deals.

But I do work with some super-shoppers. The line was long. Luckily my boss is a cheater and got me inline early. In fact, I was the first person in line! The rule was you could buy as much as you could carry. I went through twice.

In the end, I foolishly put $200 on my newly cleaned off Visa. But, I got over $600 worth of clothing and jackets and shoes. Plus I'm paying off my Visa by the end of the month anyways.

So back to being on fast forward.

Life is about choppy thoughts today. I can't stay focused on just one thing at a time. There's work, spilling pop in my lap, eating pizza, analyzing an account's buying strategy, researching a big account, thinking about writing I have to do, coming up with new editorial ideas for a magazine, a variety of reining things.... my vacations....my busy, busy weekend coming up...

Speaking of vacations, I just found out that I get more days this year than I thought. I have 10 days to spend before next May. I know exactly where those days are going. Horse shows. The NRHA futurity. It's a huge show down in Oklahoma City. I'm SO going. In fact, I'm going to stay with some people beforehand and see if I can maybe get on as hired help for the week. It's the Daytona 500 of the horse world.

My desk is exceedingly messy at the moment. It's contributing to my frazzled brain, I think I need to clean it. Right Now.

Hi Heather,

Sounds like you got some great things. I always feel like it's ok to splurge a bit in deals like that, if it's something you'll really use and enjoy.

Welcome back to blogging! Come and visit my blog anytime. :)
