world-class

Yesterday, I had an excellent day at work. I made a bunch of arrangements for a wedding that I didn't even know I was going to be working on and they all turned out really well. (Photos tonight, perhaps?) I sold a ton of Christmas ornaments. My boss told me that she "trusted me completely." (In a certain context, perhaps, but still it was nice to hear.) I went home feeling inflated and happy and confident, like I was a real florist who knew what the hell I was doing.
And then realized that I'd left the coffeemaker on (and empty) all day. It's a miracle that I haven't burned my building down yet, what with this and also the asparagus I almost flambeed a few weeks ago. Sigh.

Oops. I forgot to pay my credit card bill last month because I didn't take five seconds to look a tiny bit closer at the numbers. Brilliant! I'll never do THAT again...I hope...

But hurray for being awesome at work! I'll live vicariously through you on that one ;-)
