RUNNING THRU THE HAZE...ON EMPTY

That's how I feel today. OK OK - I know it has to happen from time to time.

What?
Today just wasn't a good day (so far!) OK - that's not 100% true - parts were Great (lunch with Allegra - it was SO NEEDED! and bought a few skeins of yarn (sale!) that I needed. No really - I needed them <-- yarn therapy. AND I signed off on the furniture that will be in my new office (end of May I'll move in) Yeah!) - but the general mood of the day -- that's right -- SUCK-0-LA!

Why?
My assistant gave her notice this morning...yes...5 days before THE GIANT IMPORTANT TRIP we've been planning for MONTHS...which means that I now get to do it all (again.)
OK - I love my job - so it's not the JOBS FAULT...but it's possibly the WORST WORST WORST timing. I won't be able to consider interviewing new folks until late April/May...which means it's going to be a few LOOOONG months -- so pardon if I don't have as much time to blog on.

Hmmm...perhaps tonight is the night to spend the buy-one-get-one Ben & Jerry's coupon...mmmm and we didn't end up opening the wine last night (Dmitri was afraid he wouldn't be able to get his knit on if he had a glass...tee hee...) but Chianti doesn't go with ice cream...maybe I'll chill that bottle of Moscato I have....

Tomorrow morning I'm off all too bright and early to Strawbridge's Department Store in Philadelphia, PA. I'm doing a trunk show! Yeah! (It's a personal appearance...I go and help customers (as the designer) pick out hats to go with there outfits/Easter suits etc.) Hey - first 50 people to buy a hat from my collection get a free hatbox! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Time to put my time management skills into overdrive.
Back to the pile of work I go.

Your title today describes EXACTLY the way I've been feeling most of the day myself. Maybe it's the universe against us?! Great blog by the way...

I am sorry, Kimberli. If I could leave things here, and had experience in the amazing hat world, I would come and be your assistant! All kidding aside, take a breath, think about the trip at hand, and the whole finding a new person will come later.

Hope things look a little brighter for you very soon. I will miss your blog entries!
