you know when you've just had enough. you know when fueses are popping internally. i've been on a downward turn for about a month now. just life. i haven't been up for blogging, i've been visiting but, not posting. about two weeks ago my co-worker had a little melt down. she directed her frustation and anger at me. yup, insulted me. i then had to defend myself, i choose to be very stern and strong. her melt down happened during a meeting with the boss and my other co-workers. the boss thought i was in the right.ok, now that's a first! the co-woker did apologize to me. i'm doing my best to get along with her but i'm reserved.each day is a task in the office dealing with this co-worker's personality. the lord will show me, is what i pray.
this past week we had a lot of rain. buckets of it everywhere. where does the rain go once it's filled the sump pump? this is not a trick question. one would say the pump turns on and pumps all that nasty rain water out to the sewer. and you would be correct with that answer.  not here at 49 stratford dr brick, nj. our pump never turned on. now say oh @@##.!! when i came home from work (a week ago this past monday) i noticed water on the floor in the bathroom. i knew right away that wasn't a good thing. i opened the door where the pump is located and found more water. the pump backed up onto the new carpet and into the laundry room. at 1:30 a.m. we had another misfire of the sump pump, again it backed up onto more areas of the newly remodeled family room. uggg! i've had enough. i know it's just a season and this to shall pass. i'm keeping my faith. god's blessings are washing over me. we are waiting for the insurance adjuster to do his adjusting thing, we are getting estimates for the repairs. we just have to wait this could have been worse, thank god it wasn't. NOW ONTO THE PART THAT GETS FUN!
i know some of you may have seen the lovely altered & beautifully embellished dress forms all over the internet. they are simply stunning. i was very inspired the first time i spotted one. keeping the project in the back of my mind for about two years. i put my hands on all my goodies that i planned on using for my lovely lady and she began to grow. before the sump pump back up downstairs happened and a little after my dear friend chris passed away i "birthed" her. although i haven't touched her in two weeks i'll give you all a peek at what's cooking. i've done major altering, pieces of this, bits of that, sewing, gluing, pinning, poking i love the way she is coming to life. i do plan on adding her to my web site, i will keep her standing guard at my booth, we are about to enter the busy season at Treasures By the Sea, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. i hope my lady finds a home!!. you all take care. keep me in you prayers. thank you!
