First Day of School Was Rough

Monday, August 25, 2014

Today was the first day of school, but only for the 7th graders. That was enough. The busses either didn't show up or were late. The phone rang off the hook and the doorbell to come into the building rang constantly too. Blah! Tomorrow the entire Jr. High comes back. Of well... It will get better
On another note.... I think the fashion industry should bring back housedresses or a mumu of something. I changed out of my work clothes and honestly didn't want to put on another pair of shorts/pants anything that felt constricted at all. That's when I though my grandmother had the right idea. They would wear some kind of house dress at home. I remember my mother wore them sometimes and around the house you could let everything hang loose. Oh well, I know that sounds silly, but that was what I was thinking. Haven't been Sparking too much as our main computer has a virus and I have to go onto Spark via my phone or Nook of which I don't like to. I hope everyone has a great week and I will probably check back in on the weekend.

    You can get them at KMart if you are looking for them. And yes, they are extremely comfortable after a long day.

    Hope today goes more smoothly. And by all means put on something comfy when you come home. It helps in relaxation and in the transformation from work to off duty!

I pulled a muscle in my back

Sunday, August 17, 2014

I pulled a muscle in my back and am trying to relax. I feel like I am moving in a thousand different directions. I have so much to do while I watch my family "relax". We are in the process of adopting our 15 year old foster daughter, which involves a ton of paperwork. I HATE paperwork. I do it all day at work and then come home and do it at home. I know I will get motivated to get it done, find all the papers that are necessary, just doesn't look like today will be good. We had company over last night, so I cleaned all day, washed dishes, did laundry, etc. all that fun stuff. Oh well, I am trying to breathe and relax.

    I agree: paperwork is horrible! And that important kind of paperwork adds an extra layer of stress. How kind you are to find room in your heart for your daughter. I hope you can find the time and the peace of mind to get through the process soon. Good luck with the pulled muscle too. It's a small thing, but can be surprisingly annoying!

  Yoga helps pulled muscles, as well as getting in the pool! Feel better!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my Spark Page

Thursday, August 14, 2014

I tried to thank everyone yesterday, but was unable to. I am having a heck of a time with Spark lately. I keep getting these weird pop up ads and commercials. So, anyhow, this is a big thank you.
DH and I rediscovered a place to walk. We used to walk at the local cemetery and when we moved we quit. We went back yesterday and things have really changed. Anyhow, the place is totally round circle with a hill. It's about a 1/3 of a mile or so, but the hill makes up for it. We do 4 rounds and then go on the level for a cool down.

    When my DH and I lived in town we were very near a cemetary too. I loved going there for our walks in the evenings. And I would run thru there in the afternoons before he got home from work. Just this summer we went back there to walk it again and I was reminded again why we used to go. Peace, quiet, no traffic. Just a nice place.

    Spark is a lot harder to navigate these days because of the ads. I understand that is how they keep it free, but the ads can get in the way.

DRY, ITCHY EYES

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

All day my eyes feel like they have sand in them. It is HORRIBLE!!! I came home from work and put some eye drops in them and took an antihistamine. I am hoping something works because it's a good thing I am a good typist because I can barely see right now. DH and I walked two nights in a row. I don't know about tonight as it has been raining and thunderstorms off and on all day. I may look at cable tonight to see what they have to offer as far as exercising goes. Feel a little more comfortable as far as job goes, it will be ok. One day at a time...

Did Everything I Could To Get Out of This Funk

Thursday, August 07, 2014

I did everything I could today to get myself out of this funk. I made an appointment to get my hair cut and colored. Made an eye appointment for new glasses. I also bought myself a new pair of sneakers My mom gave me a gift card for Kohl's and I used it and opened a charge and they cost me a whopping $6.00. DH and I walked a mile at the track. The dogs ear is looking better. She got a haircut today.

    Last year I was under a lot of stress dealing with a person at work. The only thing that saved me was walking 5 miles home every day from work. By the time I would get there I was no longer thinking about my troubles I was just happy to make it home. After awhile walking home became the high point of my day and it still is. Exercise can accomplish a lot more than people think.

    You are doing what it takes. Good for you!!
And do try that back row in Zumba! I LOVE IT there. No pressure, pure fun! And if I lose the beat or can't follow the steps, I just march and swing my arms or even, gasp!, do my own dance steps. Woo hoo!
