Last week I wasn’t able to go to choir because of work. This time, I was able to leave work at a normal hour and then later go off to sing.
It was colder than cold today and tonight, and I really should’ve known better than to just dress in a short sleeve top and some jeans, but I didn’t think that far ahead. Didn’t realize that, even though the church we practice in is more humid than the Amazon rain forest during the Summer, that it would be colder than a tomb in the Winter. Anyway, the Cackler teased me about my short sleeve choice a few times. Then decided to taunt the guy in front of me. She went over to him and said, “Did you realize your pony tail is still in your collar, or don’t you care? Tee hee!!” It was hard to read from my angle whether he was trying to humor her or what, but they did start chatting. The Cackler said, “You have a Harley, don’t you?” She guessed right. The guy asked, “How did you guess?” to which she replied “Your pony tail! TEE HEE!!”
Anyway, when I finally got home tonight, I took a lovely, hot shower and now I’m back to what Kramer from “Seinfeld” calls his core temperature. Much better.
Also today I had a wave of refurbished confidence. An auditor will be visiting us later this week so everyone is getting things in order. Last week I was told that I didn’t provide a receipt for something our department purchased for an event. I tore my folder apart, looked through my desk, even emptied out my purse. I also went to the shop we got the original receipt from, but they don’t print those types out anymore. We prepared for further follow up today, but as I was rummaging for the second time through my file o’receipts, my coworker came in beaming from ear to ear and said she found my receipt. I had given it to the proper people afterall and had not lost it irresponsibly. Do I need to elaborate on how much I worry about that kind of thing? Although that little drama didn’t consume my entire weekend, I did worry about it off and on. So knowing that I had not lost it made me more confident in my own file maintenance.
