Summer time...

Well, it's official. I have my first sunburn of the season. I know, I know. Skin cancer, and I'm ruining my skin and I should know better. Heard it all before. Boring. Plus, I don't need to hear from you about what a dumb ass I am. My skin is reminding me with every step I take in my blue jeans and every twist in my under wire bra.

I didn't do it on purpose, though. Let me explain. I have been working non stop for the past 6 days. Working doubles at a busy restaurant is absolutely exhausting, but I'm just gonna leave it at that because I refuse for this to turn into a blog about my job waiting on tables. Boring.
Today was my day off which I was looking forward to sleeping in and then being extremely productive after I was well rested and recovered. Except at 8 am when I sat straight up and ran outside with the first sharp thing I could find (a pair of scissors). See, I thought someone was trying to break into my house because I heard someone on my roof. I run outside and look up to find a man standing above my kitchen, talking on his cell phone.

"Oh, did I wake you up?"

I stared at him blankly for 10 seconds and then went back in side.

My row of townhouses is getting re roofed. It's exactly 6:17pm outside and they're still on top of my townhouse banging away. This may not be such a shock if WE HAD BEEN GIVEN ANY KIND OF NOTICE ABOUT THIS WHAT SO EVER.

When I realized that I wasn't going to go back to sleep with people hammering shit to my roof I went to the club house, bitched at the maintenance guy for not giving us any warning, made him feel bad about the fact that I'm terribly sleep deprived and then fell asleep at the pool. Hence, the sun burn. Did I mention its only on the top part of my body? Ha, what a dumb ass.

These roofing people are supposedly gonna be here for a few more days but here's the good news. I won't be! Jeff and I are going to Georgia for my Papa's 80th birthday, but we're leaving first thing tomorrow morning and are going to stop off in Savannah for some get away time including a haunted pub tour.

I've been working doubles too and I'm exhausted. Also? drains my creativity so that = less blogging. UGH!
