It's the Weekend!
So, I forgot to tell you guys this funny little story...
I am such a clutz. Or as ex roomie used to say I have terrible "space management". I am constantly running into walls and tables etc. About once every few months I'll open the car door too fast and catch my nose on it or sometimes and eye. It doesn't feel good. The last time I did it, my nose bled.
So, last Sunday I stopped by a friend's house and he opened the garage door. I didn't know he was going to stop it half way up. I thought he was going to open it all the say, but he stopped it half way up and I walked right into the door. I was wearing my sunglasses and that didn't help. The sunglasses dug right into my nose and within a matter of seconds, but nose started swelling up and up and up...
So, a few people think the nose is broken, I'm not really that concerned about it. My left eye started turning black a day or two later and now it's been like 5 days and I still look like a victim of spousal abuse. hehe
My boss saw it on Monday and he was understandably concerned. It's not exactly "Professional" to be walking around a fine dining establishment waiting tables with a black eye and a busted nose.
By Wednesday of this week I was looking REALLY rough, so I called him and he told me to take the night off - we were dead anyway.
So, I worked Monday, I had off Tuesday, I took off Wednesday and then I had off Thursday and today is Friday. I was supposed to work. But, last night my boss called and he said we literally had 2 tables last night and there are 6 servers supposed to be working tonight. He asked if I wanted another night off since I drive 60 miles round trip and I might not even get a table.
So, I tokd him I'd take tonight off work, but I definitely want to work on Saturday and he said that's not a problem. He'll call around and have everyone take turns not coming in.
I don't know what I was thinking. I really thought this restaurant was going to be busy and we were going to make tons of money. I was mistaken. So far we have staretd off really slow.
Anyway, enough about that. It's Friday and I have another night off work. Yay!
Last night I hung out with my parents at their clubhouse and we played poker. They play crazy games like Omaha Hi Low with wildcards and a game called Killer and a game called Slider. I loved Slider! I managed to win that game a few times and both times I got the High and the Low. They were nice sized pots. I ended up winning about $5.00 which is good considering we are playing with dimes and quarters and the occasional dollar.
My mom's clubhouse had a doggy day with contests for the neighborhood dogs and a parade and food and stuff. Opey won the award for best coat. He does have a beautiful coat of hair.
But, since it's summer and the contest is over, we decided to get him a haircut!
We had his fur cut really short so that he looks like a little teddy bar. It's pretty adorable. I tried to take some pictures, but he's a wiggle worm and didn't want to stay still - here's a few...
Happy Friday Kids!!
