What I did with my Labor Day Vacation

Hello, September.

It's still hot as balls here in Music City.  BALLS.

We went down to Atlanta for the weekend, and I went through Dad's ties and hats, which I'll be putting to use in decorating our house.

I turned the ties into curtains in our kitchen, and I love them.  LOVE.

Twenty Eight Ties.  All silk.
So, that was my afternoon.  What I learned from this is that Dad favored a designer named Bert Pulitzer (who apparently influenced Calvin Klein, as indicated here).

But he ran the spectrum.  There's a Christian Dior up there, as well as one from Gap.  Abercrombie & Fitch, and of course a few Brooks Brothers.

Mostly, it's nice to have a little of Dad's DNA in my kitchen, where I do what I do.  I feel a little connected to him.

It was, all in all, a good weekend.  We had fun with Mom and the pugs, hit up IKEA, ate good food, and basically chillaxed.

We bought Mom a laptop.  Why?  Well, it's a long story, but basically - she needed it.  We needed her to have it - and they're SO CHEAP.  Holy shit laptops are cheap.

Back to work tomorrow, which is kind of a shame.  I could use another day to chill and be chilling.

And - ugh.  Work.  What a mess.  There's just a lot of chaos, re-orging, and people not behaving like they ought to.  Kind of the usual.  We're in a new, weird world.  I'm getting yet another new boss to be named... eventually.  I think they've already decided who, and that in and of itself sucks.  We'll see.  I'll keep you posted.

I feel like there's a lot to catch up on even though it's only been a few weeks since we last brunched. Any word on the new boss? Just how cheap was that laptop b/c we are on the hunt for one.

Are you in Cali?
