Hello! I started my pumpkin painting/decorating project last night. More on that in a minute.
But first. This morning I did the most boneheaded thing a person can do… and then I cried.
I sent an email to my BK Attorney asking a few questions about about a bill I keep getting that is supposed to be Lien Stripped. I even attached a copy of the bill!
I sent the email, with attachment to my Attorney and to his Assistant.
Then I looked at the email again AFTER I SENT IT!
I did not send it to my Attorney and his assistant. I sent it to a person I used to work with and my attorneys assistant.
This person is FRIENDS WITH ABOUT A MILLION PEOPLE HERE, EVEN THOUGH SHE IS RETIRED! I don’t consider her a friend.
THEN I CRIED.
There is no way to recall the message, there is no way to take it back. It is out there. She now has a piece of information that is private and personal, in writing.
I called the Atty’s office and told them – please do not reply to that email! My lame attempt at damage control.
THEN I CRIED… again.
I know this person well enough to know that she will not be discreet, that she will absolutely feed the rumor mill and that within a few days, all the people at the office will know that I am in a Bankruptsy. They probably already do as I type this.
I really don’t give a rip about the rumor mill, because frankly, I’m not close to anyone I work with. But I am a private person (who blogs!). I try to stay under the radar and away from the drama.
What I do fear is that it will get back to HR and when the time comes for a promotion which is supposed to happen in July, they can use it against me.
Well, as you know sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways. I have no idea why I was not careful this morning because I usually am.
But it is what it is.
A couple of things I try to tell myself is this:
These people don’t matter to me in the least and this will not matter in five years!
Now onto more fun things!
I pulled out the paint and the gesso.
I painted all of the pumpkins with gesso for a base.
Then I started the blue.
The one is the back is going to be silver. It needs another coat.
Also, going to put a pretty, shiny varnish on them before I bling them up!
I also wrapped up the box my tree is on.
That looks better right?
So it looks like this year my colors are white and turquoise.
But my face is a nice shade of RED!
OMG! Talk me down, its not the end of the world right?
