Set-ups, Day 6: Merry and Bright

  • Enjoy quick breakfast of instant oatmeal with blueberries; hope there really is something to product's promises of staying power and heart health
  • Layer clothing to fight biting wind-chill factor
  • Remember to take daily self-portrait while lipstick is still fresh; lament what humidity does to hairdos
  • Arrive at new client's home to begin set-up, grateful that she invested in beautiful, soft artificial cedar garlands which need little if any primping
  • Wish that travel-sized hand cream in purse still had something left in it to soothe scratched hands (from primping countless scratchy garland throughout the week)
  • Hang assorted kugels from dining room chandelier
  • Call to reschedule afternoon set-up to allow for time to work in the store on one of the busiest days of the year
  • Eat a quick lunch in the car on the way to the store
  • Work in store until closing
  • Head out to patiently-waiting client's house; hang kugels, decorate mantle, and generally work Christmas magic
  • Express gratitude for array of tasty snacks provided by said client
  • Load supplies into car, take deep breaths, and head to Kohl's for another round of Christmas shopping
  • Wish for tub of hot water in which to soak aching feet

That picture of the two of you is darling! You both have those amazing blue eyes that I covet.

Yikes on the scratched-up hand pic!

Hooray for another client providing tasty snacks.

Late-night shopping again? How do you guys find the stamina?

I love the chandelier kugels! I wish I had kugels to decorate my apartment. Actually I wish I had a place to put kugels in the first place.

Love it all!

Yikes! Denise's hand looks horrid. I hope she got some Neosporin along with that hand cream.

Look at the bright side, you are both still smiling and looking good after working super hard for 8days and nights!
