Yee Haw! I still have loads of provisions and fizzy water, so aside from feeling sick like a dog with flu, I'm still riding high on a wave of optimism for No Spend Week. Thanks for joining in, ladies. Please report back on how it's going with y'all.
That was my glass half full side talking. My glass half empty side would have loved to take a cab today, between my aching guts and my four overflowing bags 'o stuff I dragged into work with me. It would also like to take a cab back home again, but I'm not listening to my half empty side just now.
No money to spend makes it easier to not spend this week, and also means more time to devote to art every day month. Yet another benefit.
So, I'm cutting out because I need to take it easy and recuperate.
For Art: I'll be doing some brainstorming for a bit of my sister's novel as art tonight. Kind of like 'guest hosting' in her writing.
Oh! I had a really nice gift today. A bit box arrived and I thought it was a delivery of flip chart paper. It turned out it was a very cool painting from my work wife (who I left in September when I started my new gig), Shannon. It is a big 3D black heart, cleaved in two, and sewn up with red laces. It is on a purple backdrop and has the caption, 'You broke my heart'. I showed it to all my new coworkers to let them know how popular and missed I am at my old job so they will think I'm cool. It's pretty awesome. I miss having a work wife, but these guys are very nice to me. Too bad I don't have a camera at work.
