I originally wasn’t going to request my birthday off, so my coworker did; then I booked a Scentsy event 11/20 and 11/26, so I requested 11/18; but the coworker took it off too. I asked for 11/17 (today) but my boss was sick Tuesday and Wednesday and it wasn’t approved in the system. I wasn’t going to take it; it wasn’t right. Eventually, the boss above had some contact with her and said it was fine. I wasn’t going to just not come in; that’s not how I was raised, and I would have figured out how to get things done.
But it all worked out; and let me tell you; it was nice to have a day off to get things done.
I attempted to go get my driver’s license renewed last Saturday, but they were closed Friday and Saturday due to Veteran’s Day; so I was successful with that today. In and out in 20 minutes. I was convinced that this was going to be the year I would have to drive and take the test; but nope! I was on the east side of Iowa City, so I stopped into Dollar Tree to pick up a few things for the vendor event on Sunday, then grabbed lunch at Panera, and came back home. I needed to move a few things around in my garage – it was fine I can pull in, but I really just needed to arrange a bit better. I had a few mice in there and I have been very scared! But… no signs of them. I got it swept out really well, got some things pitched, put more poison down; and cleaned out my trunk. I have to say, I’m a little concerned about mice crawling up into my engine though. I need to do some research. So far all I’ve seen is dryer sheets – Adam made a great point, putting something that could potentially be flammable under there is questionable. I agreed. I’m definitely not going to remember to take it out every morning and put it back in at night.
I’m adding a few pictures; it’s November 17th, it was 73 degrees. I wore a tshirt and had flip flops on to get my license renewed; and wasn’t really feeling the “holiday” spirit prepping for this event on Sunday; but thankfully Snapchat has a snow filter. And then you know, back to my glasses; geek glare and all.
My office is a bit of a mess – but I think I’ve got a bit of a better grasp on this even this year. I did it last year, and had a few customers actually reach out to see if I’d be there this year. I hope to be a bit more organized. I’m actually taking less warmers, but marking them to sell. I’m crawling into bed feeling like Saturday will be a great day to get ready for this and Sunday I can load up and go!
