I've been an avid fan of typing since I was in 7th grade. Thinking of how long ago that is makes me want to puke. I took a required typing class that year, and I loved it. Like loved it to the point where I would go home, sit on the basement floor with my sister's crappy portable typewriter and practice. For hours. I'm pretty sure it was right about then that I really did decide that I wanted to be a secretary when I grew up.

The remaining years of my schooling included the taking of any class I could that involved office work. I excelled in all of them, and typing has always been my strong suit. When I applied for my current job, I had to do a typing test on an electric typewriter. I was literally too fast for the machine. I think at that point my typing test at the local employment place was 132 wpm. 

That being said, yesterday at work taught me something new. If you type non-stop for 7 hours with long nails, your fingers get sore. I think I was probably 5 hours in when I realized that my fingers were getting a bit sensitive. While I'm typing this, I'm paying attention to what part of my fingers hit the keys, and it's kind of a combination of nail and finger. All that tapping for so long got to me. Weird!!

I also learned something else on my first full work day Wednesday. Normally I'd be off, and then normally I would work until noon on Thursday at which point I would come home and clean the house. That would leave me with a nice clean house and nothing else important to do.  I decided I would work until 5 yesterday, come home and clean, and then have a full 4 day weekend with nothing else to do.

So what I learned is that if you go to bed at 1, get up at 6:20, work 8 hours, clean the entire house, make a late supper and then sit down to watch tv at 9'ish, you are asleep in the recliner before 11 p.m. Not a fan of being zonked out that early. From there I woke up around 1 and then watched 2 hours of tv.  I may have to make some adjustments in this Wednesday after work schedule.

I did this mani on Tuesday night. Is it just me, or do my nails seem shorter lately? I can't figure it out.
Kleancolor Americano, Kleancolor Metallic Brown, Ali Express AP 21 stamp
I really didn't know what I wanted to do. This Kleancolor Americano is kind of a weird gold with a brownish cast to it, and the Kleancolor Metallic Brown worked really well for the stamping. I only have a mini bottle of that brown. I may need to buy a full size at some point.  The design is from the Ali Express AP 21 stamp.

I still have this on now, and it held up very well throughout house cleaning. And I was doing some serious cleaning. After having the ceilings done, we cleaned really well, but for anyone who hasn't had ceiling or wall work done, the dust from it settles for quite awhile. So I was working it last night. I'm impressed that this gold didn't chip or wear at all.

My next goal for the weekend is laundry. I also have a party to attend and hopefully two of the pups are going to come over to play.

The laundry part doesn't sound very fun. Maybe I'll skip that part. I still have a drawer full of clean underwear.


  1. You're so funny lol! Love this design and colors. When I saw it I could've sworn that it came from a bp plate, guess I was wrong.
