Busy as a Bee

Between having to clean my construction zone, preparing for S-I-L's baby shower and all the work drama, I have not had a chance to breath, let alone blog about it. So, without further ado, (in list form, of course), here is the stuff that has been going on in my world.

1. Kitchen finished. I cannot wait to have my first dinner party! Once I finish cleaning the entire apartment (dust travels fast and far), I want to have a big housewarming party and then corny theme parties like Tupperware, Party Lite, etc.

P.S.: Thank you for all of your love of my kitchen. Regarding the backsplash: My original thought was glass tiles (Stella!) in differing shades of blue or green. Needless to say, the pocketbook was not down with this suggestion. So I need to come up with an alternate solution. The kitchen gets so much light that I wanted to stay a little on the dark side.

2. Not only did TallTrees_ resign, but I had to fire one of my staff based on her time and attendance; which was none, and on her refusal to do one of her job tasks. Sucks, but she deserved it.

3. SIL is pregs and we had a baby shower for her. She was so ungrateful about the whole thing. My mother KNIT a blanket and the only thing she said was that it didn't match with the nursery decor. Listen, I am as big of a bitch as the next girl, but you don't say shit like that out loud, and especially about something that your MIL worked really hard on.

4. Dirty and I have been together for 8 months and it stills feels weird to me to have someone that I can completely be myself around. I am not used to someone other than myself indulging my every whim, and totally supporting everything that do. We do get into fights, serious ones, but I don't feel like I need to hold a grudge. We talk about it and it is over. No residual anger or passive aggressive behavior on my part which is a big thing for me. The best part about him though is that he encourages my 2 addictions; reading and food. He recently came home from a business trip to California with 2 cookbooks from Sonoma Wine Country. Love them and him.

So I am back in my apartment full time, cooking meals in my kitchen and trying to save money for my the next upcoming projects: the Bathroom and a three week trip to South America. Anybody want to donate to the Sloane is Poor fund? :)
