Morning! We made some visible progress in the garage last night. Maybe there is some daylight ahead. Working out of two offices today. Kind of enjoying the quiet of working by myself right now....

Had a meeting with two dear friends last night. Decided to meet together once a month. Interesting how our lives have changed over the years. We're total opposites yet have formed a deep bond over the years. My life has kinda smoothed out right now and their's is bumpy and rough. My one friend shared her mother had passed away yesterday after years of Alzheimer's. Her sister had cared for her in her home and had done a marvelous job. It was a night we needed each other. My other friend has lived in turmoil with her husband and it seems to get worse and not better.

Working at one of our other offices this week...filling in for someone gone for training. Worked on garage for two hours last night. Hopefully we'll start to see some improvement soon???!!!

Work and Home is in a state of change. Change is good...but turbulent.

    Working on your garage a little every day has to show some improvement and it sounds like you are making it work for you. Remember to take sometime for you though.
Please keep us posted.
Blessings and hugs,

Monday Morning

Well I survived the weekend! I am sore and moving slow. We started cleaning out the garage yesterday. Seven and 1/2 hours later we are half way done towards our goal. My hsuband is such a packrat. He drags us through so much because he can't part with anything. He finally made the comment someday he'll have to put alot of it in the dumpster. It's like why do we have to keep moving it around then? But I let him off too easy I guess. They are mostly computer related so I stop nagging until he FINALLY decides to part with obsolete software etc. Talking about a garage sale this fall for some furniture from "my family" we don't want to keep stored on the other side of the garage. Guess I should be stronger and make him get rid of more of it...I just choose my battles and that isn't one of them. I choose NOT to be a nagging wife always on him.

We had fun at the milkshake booth. Didn't even know it was raining out. Enjoyed time with son and daughter-in-law for the most part. My daughter-in-law can be difficult and moody...what's new everyone in my close family is that way.

Working out consistently...but eating out way too much mostly on the weekends! So busy and hectic don't have time to cook or I'm too tired and it's easy to stop by a restaurant and then I make poor choices. Guess I live to eat instead of eat to live. I enjoy food and with a picky eater for a husband...I enjoy eating all the foods he won't eat or like the smell of.

Boy I'm on a roll this morning. Don't mean to be so negative about my family. I know I deal with alot of high stress people in my life and Monday morning reflecting on them realize how they wear me out...but since they are the people closest to me...guess I'm not getting rid of them ha! ha! That's why I am doing things for myself, relieving stress and trying to take better care of myself.

Busy weekend. Son and daughter-in-law staying the night. They have tickets to a movie series. Tomorrow the Farmer's Market and then off to look for a FUN CAR. I am so looking forward to getting a fun car for my husband and myself. A way to blow off steam...relax as we travel through the countryside. It is a dream we have had for years. We take care and help everyone else...and now we are looking for something for just the two of us. Then to the county fair to work the mik shake booth for work...fun fun then off to the movie with kids and then probably collapse in bed. Then off to church with Mom and then take her to the store and eat somewhere...busy weekend.
