I did decide to play hooky last Tuesday, but only if I could get a hold of one of the office angels to cover for me that night. So I called and left a message, but she didn't get back to me.
So last Tuesday morning, I get an email from my office angel. She has to take her hubby to the airport.
I resigned myself to going into work, instead of playing with Hope and Gina, getting ready to head into work at my usual time.
When my office angel calls. She's dropped off the hubby and wants to know what I need.
Of course I don't tell her I'm in the ICU, or ill, or anything. I work at a church and there's some stuff you just can't lie about. So I tell her about the day before and how I want to go hang out again.
But I do need to get some work done. (After all, there is Sunday to get ready for and the fact that we're launching a whole new brand/look for the church this week. You know, not much on at all. Ahem.)
So we go into work, I get things rolling and take off on our public transit, texting Hope my location all the way and she texting back. (Oh and taking a tech support call from church. I neglected to check the permissions for Firefox.)
We finally met up at Vignettes in Ocean Beach and shopped. Gina had her daughter along -- we're all taking Hope's latest journaling class, and I'd met Gina at the SoCal Silver Bella gathering last year.
I wouldn't have even spotted the basket of prize ribbons if I weren't with these two.
After that we went to The Green Flash on Pacific Beach for lunch, had ice cream before heading north to Solana Beach and the Cedros Design District. We went to Out of the Blue, solo, and Leaping Lotus.
Here are a few little things I picked up at Out of the Blue:
And here we all are at the end of the day.
