Six months later ...

Last November, my handyman left a hole in my wall that he couldn't repair. Rain was coming in from around my through-the-wall ac unit, and until that sealant is replaced, there wasn't anything to be done with the wall. Other than jam a towel in the hole.

Then Chicago turned into Chiberia and became one of the coldest winters on record. Too slippery and dangerous for the condo association's maintenance man to replace the sealant. Then it got warmer but it rained all the time. We need two days of dry weather for the sealant to take.

Today, finally, the maintenance man made the repair! Yahoo!

I took today off. Unfortunately, I have a dreadful cold which kept me from getting all the work done I intended to. All I did was vacuum and walk to the vet for Miss Charlotte's meds. Maybe tonight I feel more like doing the work in the folder that is making me feel so guilty.

Stacy and Clinton tell me it's OK

Thursday morning I have a big meeting with my new, high maintenance client. This is the first time we've met face to face.
I want to appear serious but not staid. I'm going with solid gray slacks, a bright pink shell and a pale pink cardigan. According to Stacy and Clinton, gray goes with everything. With their voices in my head, I shall feel more confident.

Oh! And black shoes and a gray/pink bag.
