A Friday in the Life of...Janie!

Janie’s day.

Otherwise known as “A Friday in the Life of Janie”. After looking at all this, I just wanna get back in bed. Seriously.

8:00 a.m. – leave house for Windwalker Shooting Sports

8:30 a.m. – arrive at Windwalker for the Baker Hughes Shoot, benefiting Bynum School. Arrive, sign in, schmooze, schmooze, schmooze. Did I bring business cards??

9:30 a.m – 11:30 a.m. – shoot like a fiend with all my great coworkers (really!) so maybe I can win a cool plaque, spend money on all the fundraisers, and see friends and customers

11:30 a.m. – go through the awards program, and hope that I can get done by my next appointment, which is critical*.

12:30 p.m. – drive like a madman back to town for next appointment.

1:00 p.m. – get to Belle Gente for hair appointment, hoping and praying we can get done in time for my next appointment.

2:57 p.m. – drive like a madman back across town for my “colonoscopy results” appointment at
3:00 p.m. Same colonoscopy that they said the results were good, no problem, and then called me back while I was in Denver and set up an appointment two weeks down the road “because Dr. G wants to talk to you.” Talk about S.U.C.K. I wish MLH were here with me.

3:57 p.m. – hope like heck I’m out of the above appointment, because it’s time to drive like a madman back across town to the spa for another critical* appointment.

4:00 p.m. – time for a facial. I’m probably still dressed in a shooting shirt and dirty jeans, tennis shoes, etc, like I was at 7:30 this morning. Well, I wasn’t dirty this morning, but shooting’s a dirty sport, and I won’t have had time to change. So, I’ll be going in with all the floocy mama’s looking like a tomboy who’s been playing in the sandbox.

5:00 p.m. – leave to go get a wedding present for a shower tomorrow. Still having to go shopping in floocy places, looking like a tomboy.

5:30 p.m. – going back to car dealership to finalize whatever the heck I’m buying since MLH took my truck to Pennsylvania. My heart wants to get a small SUV. My lifestyle and constant entertaining of customers demands a big one – like a Yukon or Sequoia. Why can’t MLH be here to help me decide? Waaaaaaaaaah.

Okay, gotta go get dressed, get the dogs in the kennel, put on makeup and a cap – so I can be, at the very least, presentable!

Oh, and did I say that the housecleaners come today? Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhh!

*Appointments are critical because I’m readying for our annual trip to NMOGA** (for the first time, I might still be batching it, MLH may still be stuck in Pennsylvania!) in Santa Fe next week – and girls just wanna look good!

Love ya girl and call me if you need me-dead serious.

Can you put a little more into your day, like maybe a presentation for the CEO of some big oil company or something? I mean, there's bound to be a stray moment you don't have scheduled! Will be praying for your colonoscopy follow-up, and that you can just survive the day!

Lynellen said...

Wow, that makes me tired about I go take a nap on your behalf?

Janie said...

Jill. Now I'm at the 1:00 pm appt, sitting here with la color on my hair, waiting. For miracles.
The doctor is at 3pm...and I might call you...seriously.

The Durango's too big and I'm thinking Yukon or Sequoia? Ruh roh.

Pam - I don't think I can put anymore into my day. Unless, of course, you flew out here for the weekend. Now that would be fun.

Lynellen - wake up!!! Are you sleeping for me yet? 'Cause I don't feel any more rested!

I think I can help you in a couple of places, lol. You can set up an account with JoAnn's Fine Gifts, so that you can call and say send such and such to so and so. Then, they either put it on your credit card or send you a bill. This is a huge help to me.

Then, you can buy a tube of the Clinique Facial and put it on while you blog. You get enough for like 50 facials. I only do the spa facial once a year. But, I'm a totally low maintenance babe. I also only wear makeup about twice per month, lol. (As we get older some of us look better without it.)

I also save time and $$$ by coloring my own hair, and always have. Thank gawd for L'Oreal Light Ash Blonde. During the 30 minutes the color is on, I wax my lip and pluck my eyebrows. Sometimes I do a Clinique facial.

Sorry you're having to take on such a heavy load with MLH gone. It sounds like you really have a full plate. I don't suppose you'd like to squeeze a lunch in there somewhere?

And Wait Just A Damn Minute! It was your birthday yesterday??? We need to go celebrate!!!!! However, if I don't see you, Belated Happy Birthday! What? Are you like 35 or something?
