I need this break for a few reasons. First, my foot hurts, and it has really slowed me down. What should take 10 minutes takes 20. I need to sit with it elevated more often than I am. Second, beauty deliveries are in a lull, so I can take advantage of the lull before the summer storm and rest. You know I'll be raring to go the moment a new collection hits the counters. Third, I need to spend more time looking for work than I have been. Right now, the environment for consultants in the DC area is scary, as a result of Congress' grand sequestration experiment. I'm not the only one who is being and will be negatively affected. Kids will go without Head Start, teachers will be fired, programs for hungry American children will be cut back, and my friends who work for the government will be furloughed, potentially losing 20% of their salaries. For the first time in my life, I'm scared about finding work. That shouldn't be; I'm good at what I do.
You know that as soon as the latest great new treasure shows up at the counters, I'll be there. Until then, please come back this week. I won't be gone entirely.
