Home: What would you think when your husband of 15 years calls you from a business trip and says that when he gets home we have to sit down and have a serious talk about our future? My first thought was that his statement was quite ominous and that he wants a divorce. He came home yesterday but we never got a chance to have that talk so when he called me from work today I asked him about it. He said we'll have that talk tomorrow but I, not being one to wait, asked if he wanted a divorce. Had he met someone else? He starts laughing and said that was the most stupid thing he's ever heard me say. It is definitely not like that. Whew! Everytime I've spoken to him today he starts to laugh and calls me stupid. This is one time I don't mind being called stupid. Wouldn't it be cool if he said that I didn't have to go back to my job but instead knit and make jewelry all day? Well, that's in addition to cleaning, laundry, cooking, chauffering, grocery shopping, arbitrating, etc, etc. Hmmm...can't wait to have this conversation.
Going to bed now. Hopefully I can read a couple of chapters before nodding off.

Just started reading Wait Until Midnight tonight. Amanda Quick aka Jayne Ann Krentz is one of my favorite romance writers. I bought these two books on a mini shopping spree today. I really went to the store for toothpaste...$148 later...somebody stop me! Got to moi moi (go to bed) now. Work tomorrow.
These are just a few of the earrings I made this week. I was up until 4 a.m. this morning trying out different combinations while trying to think of various outfits to match. I have many more that I don't have pictures of yet. In all, I made 29 pairs. I know my work is still in the amateur phase. I have to get the wire loop perfected. To my friends, however, they're fine. I am still my own worst critic. Regardless, I still think they're da bomb!
Had to finally slow down...out of beads. Unless I sell them, I can't justify my addiction. I've spent about $75 this week on beads and paraphernalia. I've made $20 and given 3 gifts but still...

I must explain. Our doctors decided that having a CEO wasn't the way to go so they hired a management group from Texas to take over running our company. These guys are chauvinistic, egocentric, arrogant, good ol boys who think nothing of making our lives Hell in order to improve the bottom line. So far, I don't see that bottom line improving. All I see is everyone fed up, good, experienced people quitting and morale at rock bottom. I do not think all people from Texas are idiots. My dad spent a few formative years there and he is by no means an idiot. I think that this bumpersticker was meant for George Dubya, actually.
