Apologies to my 3 fans.....AND big city stories

Sorry !! I know it's been a while and all 3 of you out there are checking everyday to see if anything exciting is going on here at the farm.......I do have to say that I have been working full time at the new greenhouse gig . I am loving it but it makes me just plain ty-red at the day's end.

OK soooooooo.


Well it had to happen and now our friend Rich (the pyro) can sleep at night.

Until the next seasonal accumulation.

And if you happened to miss it this time...( just kind of happened with out a lot of pre planning) you will be getting an engraved invitation to the next one.

Who knows maybe there will be a wedding thing too at the next one. OK! OK! Maybe.

So I made the trip into the big city today to surprise my friend Lauren at lunch. Her birthday is sunday and I havent seen her or the old Chicago work crew since last year around this time.She was completely surprised and pleased .....and preggers!!!!! Due in August.She looked adorable and I know she is going to be a great mom. Plus she will finally get out of that crazy place!!

I first started blogging so that my friends in the city would be able to check in on my comings and goings and antics out here on the farm. And I obviously had a relating- to- people -on- a- daily- basis need that wasn't getting met Alas most of them didn't get the" blog thing".. but.......

Today was like a welcome back party for me actually. I've never worked with a group of people that have made me feel like my daily presence is truly something they miss . It was so great to see all of them plus a few of the co-workers from other showrooms.

I got all the low down on the dirty deeds of the company owner(unethical grabby old gross schmoozer cheezeball) and his thong girl thing and both of their impending divorces.Gross. Such a surprise.And the updates on the "Dyfunctional Duo"management team. Will she and her brother finally "do it"after a planned romantic vacation together?Will his elderly father have to move in and find out after 45 years that his son is gay? Stay tuned for another episode of "The Mart Memoirs". Oiy. NONE of this surprises me , nor do I miss the daily draaaaahmah.But it was a bit entertaining to hear these tales. Not to mention the recurring feelings of mental instability while I was employed there.How on earth did I deal with all that stuff?

It WAS THEM( crazy!) not me! ( I KNEW IT!)

Ahhhhhhhh what a perspective a year doth make.

Well, of course your ex-colleagues miss you - you're adorable!

Scared me when I saw that barn fire thingie - thought you'd had a tragedy!

Yeah, your right. I do check everyday in hopes of an update. I'm a geek.
So sorry we missed the "Burn Fire". Pencil us in for the next one. Glad to hear about your Kravet visit. Makes me feel bad that I didn't stop in during my conference. I really only used to stop in to see you so....
You should have brought your camera to the Mart for blog pics.

Mrs R:
I am so glad I have you as a faithful(geek) fan!!!! I mean what's the point if I'm only (mildly at that) amusing myself. I was so not into planning this burning thing that I couldn't even muster up any grub. Rich(Big Pyro!) And Gina brought the italian beefs stuffs and sort of organized it.Of course I didn't want to clean my house. All I was capable of was handing out the Berry
Weiss. (big surprise.)I brought my camera to the Mart but I guess I'm not a die hard blogger yet! They did ask about youz guys..told them you were mosiac-ing in a big way and fabulous!

Thanks for the flower facts.....and for mentioning I'm adorable. Sure was a huge warm fuzzy for sure. No need to worry bout the burn pretty normal stuff in these here parts. Your "snarky" is razor sharp gal. yeeeooowch!go girl........
