I’m currently typing this while battling a nasty allergy headache. Fun times up in here! Anyway, I decided late Monday night to re-organize my closets and find a better spot for my boot collection. This process involved leaving several pairs of shoes out in the living room. The cats thought it was a fun game to stick their heads in my shoes. What sparked my random organization crisis, is that my mom might be stopping by next week to help set additional mouse traps. I couldn’t have her see disorganized closets! After vacuuming up the closets, I decided I needed another shoe rack. Of course I pick the worst time of the year to decide to need more storage solutions. All the annoying college kids are coming back from Ohio and need hang out in Target 24/7.
So I figured I would out-smart the crowd by ordering a utility shelf online and picking it up at the guest counter. I also threw some maxi pads and Clearasil face wipes onto the order. I didn’t feel like running through the store to get those myself. Unfortunately, there was a line at the counter by the time I got there after work. I was stuck next to Wheezin’ Ed who turned out to be a lady once I looked over. She also got a phone call while in line and had a surprisingly normal voice. I’m not sure why this surprised me, I guess it was because she has a very manly wheeze?
Anyway, once I got home I scared the cats because I made too much noise while trying to get the metal shelves out of the box. I set up my new utility rack and sweat up a storm doing it too! I shoved it in the back of a closet and it fits all my boots. A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE, IT WAS! But it’s going to be a pain to get them out because I have crawl into the closet to retrieve them. Oh well, I guess that’s the hazard I must endure when owning an extremely unnecessary quantity of footwear.
By the time I finished, I was too tired to take a picture or head to the blogger meet up. I would have been really late anyhow. Plus I got a Manicube pedicure at work and swiftly decided I needed a few new pairs of sandals. To my defense, there is a really big sale happening. So paying $30+ in cab fare to get home from the meetup just didn’t seem like a fiscally good idea. This wouldn’t have been an issue if the express bus would run later into the evening. Boo! I guess I will have to reunite with my friends I met at the Highball Lounge gathering at the fall soiree.
We opted to change our trivia day to that evening, since I wasn’t making it to the blogger event. We went to the Green Briar which has decent food. Ginny and some other friends tagged along and we ended up having a huge team. This was a little counter-productive because everyone had different answers, and not everyone’s answer was heard. So we didn’t win anything. I didn’t really contribute anything extra because I knew the answers that my other teammates knew anyway. Oh well, better luck next time!
I did pick the team name though, which was Awesom-O 5000. But our drunk trivia host kept calling us Awesome Sauce, until we corrected him. Despite not winning, I still had fun and am glad I got to wear my new top that I was saving for the blogger meet up. I love it because it’s so colorful, but a pain to get into. Andy had to zip that back for me. Now it’s back to work, but I’m tempted to get another pair of sandals though. Send help!
