Just one of those days

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

I love my job, really, but there are days when it is hard to like it.
Today was one of those days. I went to work early so I could have
a quote all ready for DH. I spent 1 1/2 hours getting it as correct
as I could. He has his interview, comes back and now it is time
to upload the application. Sailing along nicely until I reach the
final screen. Red flag! Drat. Go back and correct something.
Red flag! What??????After the 12th try (yes, I did count), I
thought I had cleared all the hurdles. Now all the other error
messages are gone and there is a new one. Hmmmm! After
the 13th try with the error message still there, I called it a
day. It was 5 PM.
So, in order to retain my normal slightly insane composure,
I can home to light the wood furnace before supper. I spent
10 mintues chopping wood to get a true sense of peace back.
Much better. Combine sitting most of the day and fussing
with a funky program, I guess I just needed some good
cardio to get me in the right mood. Off to church and the
inspiring message from the pulpit put me in the best frame
of mind.
Despite the hassle, I stayed on track and am satisfied that
this was just one of those days that come along to try the
patience.
Should you ever have "one of those days", just focus on what
it takes to get you back in the mood. Just breathe and get
through it.
Note to self-so good of you to remember mindful eating. If
any day was a grab-a-snack day, today was it.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thursday. Only 3 more
days until Christmas. HUGS!

    Sounds like a VERY trying day!!! Congrats to you for taking the steps you needed to balance it back out and restore peace and sanity! Congrats also for not turning to food for some momentary comfort -- that is not so easy to do on a day like that one! emoticon emoticon emoticon

GS and Daycare Concert

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

We attended the concert for the daycare center. The children
were all dressed up and sang their hearts out. After the program,
we were treated to cookies, juice and coffee. I picked up what I
thought was a bonbon and discovered......a chocolate covered
cherry. I thought twice about spitting it out with all those little
eyes watching me LOL!
I am planning to set up the new computer tomorrow if I find my
click drive. I know it is here somewhere but I have seemed to
have misplaced it.
Well, as long as I have my mind, I guess I'll be okay.
I have to close off to make DS some waffles. He had late night
practice and he is hungry. Was that a growl?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening. HUGS!

    Guilty confession-I ate a whole box of chocolate covered cherries in on sitting! Even worse, I bought them myself, telling me that I would eat one a day! Lesson learned! Hugs!

Elementary School Concert

Monday, December 19, 2011

We watched our GD in her concert and it was just great. She
sang every song and knew all the words. The whole group
sounded so good. The B Band played and they sounded great
for their ages. The promise of many excellent concerts to come.
There was a basket raffle after the concert. Area businesses
put together baskets and people bought tickets to deposit in
the buckets for the basket they wanted to win. The owner
of the feed store and I put together a basket worth over $50
and they pulled my ticket out. I told them to draw another
ticket. That was my only winning number but that is how it
goes. The money is being raised to send our band to play
in Washington, DC in June. DS will be a part of that group
and it will be the last chance for him to participate in high
school band. Everyone is getting excited to reach their
goal to pay for the trip. Right now, it sounds like they are
very close to meeting their goal.
Are you getting close to meeting a goal? It can be any
goal you choose. What will your reward be? If it is a trip
to Washington, DC, you might see our band LOL!.
May your reward special! Aim high and reach your
goal. It is all up to you!
HUGS and thanks for stopping by!

Cutting it short tonight

Monday, December 19, 2011

It was a very long day. Church, then practice for the children's
program, quick coffee break, get organized for lunch and the
trip to see out-of-town GC in their Christmas program in their
church. Hurry home to make pizza and sandwiches for the family
members who will attend Christmas program in our church
tonight. The little ones did just fine and DS sang a solo but
also sang with the younger kids for support. Nice lunch after
the program but I do need to get to bed soon as DS has early
morning BB practice. I'll blog more tomorrow. HUGS!

I win!

Saturday, December 17, 2011

The Appreciation Day meal was a big success.
I dib quite a bit of shopping this afternoon and I am glad I went.
Ambulance run this evening just as supper was ready. I can
always eat when I get home.
GC spent about 4 hours here and they played so nicely.
One of my girlfriends stopped by for a long talk.
DH and I are trying to decide who wants to go to bed first.

I win. HUGS and thanks for stopping by!
