and that's how I've felt for almost a week now. But I think things are starting to take a turn for the better. Last night the hubs and I went to our first night of "work" at Rita's. AKA-staff meeting [meeting employees & stocking the shelves]. Opening day is Saturday so Greg and I are going to get on the spot training-literally. But it should be good. At this point, it doesn't look like I'm going to be subbing too much in the coming weeks. Seeing as how I haven't been getting many days, we are opting to have me work at Rita's until I notice that subbing is picking up for the spring.
I did however finish my second sewing project--a skirt! I love it and I can't wait for it to be a little warmer to wear it. I'm not the kind of girl who can "brave the cold" for a skirt. Absolutely not [unless it's meet the teacher night or an open house @ school]. It's gotta be warm for my leggies to be free of pants. Maybe I'll finally get around to posting a picture of it tomorrow.
Other semi-exciting news was that I was asked to photograph a wedding. I've taken pictures at weddings before, but never been the main or only photographer. I'm super excited for the opportunity. I'm trying to talk Greg into maybe coming with me as support with another camera as a back-up, but it's not going so well. I have yet to actually meet with the couple, so we'll see what happens!
Today, I got my gift-wrapping groove on. I went to a bridal shower years ago and there was this really cute poem that the matron of honor used for the bride [her sister-in-law]. It was a little story/poem with words left out. Each blank required a guess of a household item or registry gift that fits into the sentence. For example, "Marriage is a journey. Some days will be pure ______"
[the answer here is Joy--as in Joy dish soap]
Anyway, my mom and I went to my cousin's fiancee's bridal shower last year and did it for her and it was lots of fun. SOOoooo, we decided to do it for another cousin's fiancee's bridal shower that is this weekend. I can't go since I'll be working-so I wrapped and labelled all of the gifts-since they have to be opened in order for the poem to make sense. Here's the basket of goodies all wrapped & tagged [it looks MUCH cuter in person]
