Runnin' On Empty . . . 

What has happened to the week?     New Year's Eve was spent (relatively-quietly) with friends.     New Year's Day was spent on an annual Harley ride and late lunch with our Chapter.     Monday was a bit hectic and necessitated DVR'ing the Alabama - Texas Tech Cotton Bowl game for viewing that evening.     Tuesday was a mountain-of-laundry day, along with catching up on my studio work, and our business paperwork that had accumulated over the holidays.     Wednesday, I had an appointment with a new hair stylist - who actually did a good job and will be getting my business again.     After my appointment, I had to drive down to Kennesaw to return a couple of Christmas gifts, so I took the opportunity to have lunch at one of my favorite places - Rafferty's - where I always get the "Sunshine Chicken Salad."

After lunch, I stopped by Belk to pick up a few new Clinique items, and stopped by the optician to see if they could use my Nike sunglasses (frames) to make a pair of prescription sunglasses.     I recently had to get glasses again, after twelve years without wearing glasses or contacts (I had RK surgery), and the sun is a real problem.     I have a super-nice pair of Nike wrap-around sunglasses that I bought almost two years ago in D.C. that were $200.00 that fit very well and really block the sun on the sides, so I wanted to use the frames if I could.     They checked my prescription and said it shouldn't be any problem, and I should be able to pick them up in a few days.

Thursday was really hectic.     My s.o. took the day off and we went to the gym to work out, then out for a late brunch, did a little shopping, back to the house for a few chores, and then out for an early dinner at the local Mexican Cantina.     Friday, I had to process 500+ reminder mail postcards for accuracy and post them through the postage meter for today's mail (before postage rates increase tomorrow), and I had to process all of December's fleet account billings to be mailed today as well (all for our business).

I wish I could take the day to catch-my-breath, but . . . that isn't going to happen.     I want to go to the gym to work out.     I have a couple of errands that must be done today.     My nails are a wreck, so I need to get a manicure a.s.a.p.     The grocer is definitely on my route, as well as the pet store (cat food, dog food, and kitty litter top the list).     I feel as if I'm stuck in second gear, the engine is whining and the clutch won't shift.     I know what burn-out feels like -- I've been there before in the corporate world . . . but, I didn't think I could hit it again in this situation.     Why do I feel like I want to run away from home?     I'm not six years old any more . . . I think the perfect word to describe what I feeling is . . .

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
