Incoherent Drivel

I love this time of year-- the chill in the air (although it's been a bit warm the last two days), the remaining leaves hanging from the boughs of branches, and the dry, crackly leaf piles up and down the neighborhood streets. However, what I don't like is that it's almost pitch black by five o'clock. I really wanted to take photos of the new fabrics I got on Monday so they could be viewed in the flesh. Unfortunately, work has kept me from doing so. Drats! Well, I guess I have to make a living somehow, right?

Speaking of which, have you ever worked in the sale section of a clothing store? How about the sale section in an Anthropologie store? Yowza! As the Sale Specialist at the Anthropologie I work at, I'm in charge of marking down apparel and home items and merchandising it into our itty, bitty sale room. In an effort to improve our sales and move items out, I spent 8 hours straight today marking items down and moving them around to better merchandise them. And right when the second half of my day started up, so did a wicked sore throat. By five o'clock, my nose was running uncontrollably while I was...guess what? Driving to the grocery store! Ugh...all I wanted to do was go home, change into pajamas, and snuggle up in bed. Especially since I was working off of 4 hours of sleep today. Needless to say, that's probably why you're thinking in your head, "This post isn't very coherent or cohesive." Or maybe you're not thinking that. Maybe you're thinking, "This poor gal really just needs to put on some thick, warm socks and get a good night's rest." I do look a sorry mess right now. So maybe I'll take your advice and mosey off to bed. If Stephen asks where I've gone off to, you can tell him you thought I should go to bed. G'night everyone and sleep tight!
