I woke up this morning to the scent of skunk. What a way to begin Monday, a work week in which I'll be spending over 32 hours at the store.
Update on the associate whose hours I'm covering (slightly). He didn't fall through a roof; he fell off the roof of a ranch house (his son said 9 feet). His nose was cut (left side) and stitched, and he broke his shoulder. He'll most likely be back at work next week, but he won't be hoisting any cases of tile for the next few months.
Update on my neighbor's wife: she came home yesterday afternoon. I didn't run over and talk to her. We were never that close. She wants to sell the house, but I've been seen how fully the dining room is packed with... stuff. Unless she pays someone to come in and haul it away, it's not something that's going to happen in the next week or so.
I worked 8 hours yesterday, and believe me, they were a very long hour. I talked to a couple about blinds. I did get 2 measurements and a lead on a curtain installation. No, we don't install curtains or drapes. We sign people up for a consultation with Kirsch, a company that handles 'window dressings.'
My late summer roses are beginning to bloom.
