People will be arriving at 7:30 and my table has no top!
Tuesday, August 02, 2011
I got plexiglass from Home Depot. But I can't cut it. the tool they sold me is not doing the job.
I went online and lots of people use a circular saw with a plywood blade-put in backwards. Forget that!
It is not the end of the world!! I am just fretting and exaggerating!
The table has been without a top for a year! I set the lamp in the bbottom and the bulb sticks out the top!
And the guy running the meeting just stopped in--with his dog--a greyhound with a broken hind leg. Poor thing. Ya know what? I don't give a hoot anymore. I was really nervous. But he is a very nice guy and told me only a few people will be here. I got pre-made green tea and those pretzel nubbies -mustard and honey.
I almost canceled because the place looked more and more cluttered as I tried to put things away. I finnaly got the living room looking pretty good. Some things got thrown in boxes and hid in the bedroom. The floors in the kitchen and bathroom are done and the bathroom got cleaned. Still some clutter there.
Fake it till ya make it, right?
It is the beginning of a social committee to send cards to sick people and have a dinner or something once in awhile! I teased the guy saying, "You made me clean! Just awful!" We both laughed.
I am not gonna be the perfect hostess! I don't even want to be!
wish me luck. the plexiglass won't be cut. I will just put it on top of the table as is with the lamp on top of it. I can't find the finial right now so the lampshade might be crooked.
This is my life! If they don't like it they can lump it!
