I didn’t blog over the weekend, but I don’t want you to think I’ve given up already! I had plenty to get done this weekend, and sorry to say, none of it could be done in five minutes.
Haircare Saturday. My daughter has a long, thick mane of hair that I attempt to tame by keeping in braids. Those who know me understand this is a particularly difficult challenge because I can’t do my own hair to save my life. Taking down the old braids, shampooing, blowdrying, and styling into new braids is, at minimum, 2 hours. It used to take 3, so I am improving. Thank God I only do that once a week.
After finishing Elyse’s hair, I was off to have my own wig smoked. It was crowded at the salon, and nearly every one of Lisa’s customers needed a relaxer, and one brought in a bag of weave. Needless to say, Saturday was shot.
Praising the Lord on Sunday. After getting all confused with Daylight Savings Time, we made it to church just in time to hear the preacher give the message. Then it was a trip to the airport to turn in my busted suitcase, which is another story altogether. It should have taken less than five minute to look up my info and offer an apology, but the computers were down. The clerk was nice to me, but I could tell her attitude was up about the system not working. She was growling at the computer and muttering about how her coworkers in the back room never did any work. Total time – 35 minutes.
A trip to Target, where Elyse and I also had lunch, two baskets of laundry, and the ironing of this week’s school and work clothes rounded out the day.
So, the weekend turned out to be a five-minute bust. Oh – I did learn that I can unload and reload the dishwasher in 5 min., 15 sec. I’ll take that small victory.
