Pondering things!

Thursday, March 08, 2012

Was able to get in a lunchtime walk. So enjoyed being outdoors some. It was windy but there was sunshine.

Struggling with sleeping well at night between struggling with power surges and family issues......

We have helped out brother and family a lot over the last few years. Sister in law became very demanding. I know they need help...yet they aren't the only people we help and hubby is out of work and the money is drying up...yet she feels the need to keep asking. The last time...I ignored her request. I have nothing to say. We help when we can. Now she has turned nasty and is posting things on my Facebook wall. Like that will make me want to help them. My son woke me up to have me delete something on my wall. So that's helped to keep me stay awake some. Why do people tuirn ugly when you no longer can give handouts? Good think I have always given with no strings. Supposedly they were loans but I don't expect anything back. If I get something back then that is a blessing. That way I try to avoid hard feelings against anyone. Now I feel hurt that they would think of us/me as unfeeling and not wanting to help them.

The lessons in life. Sometimes you try to help people out of love and kindness and it backfires on you. What you mean for good they take as you owe them. Sad lessons to learn. What I meant for good has turned into something ugly!

Boss is buying lunch out for us today. A first! Wonder what that is all about? Supposed to rain today so maybe won't be too bad. Really enjoy my hour away from the office eating my lunch at the park and walking when weather is nice.

Off to make it a good day...pondering as I go!

    When people are hurting they often do desperate things, hence, the old saying "hurting people hurt people". I know it's a worry wondering what they will try next to convince you to help them, but it will help if you pray and trust God to provide for their needs as well as your own. He hasn't forgotten you and knows exactly what you are going through. He has a good plan for your life! Enjoy your lunch out!

Overcoming Procrastination

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Reading book by John Maxwell and he reminded me to work on the things I keep putting off first thing in the morning...successful people and go-getters always tackle the hardest things first thing in the morning. Got some thing cleared off my desk yesterday. He also mentioned how those things we are putting off...weigh us down. Gonna try to start working on those things first thing at work. I end up spending so much time stewing and pushing some of those things to the side I could have had them done.

Off to make it a great day working on things I put off FIRST!

    Procrastination is a constant struggle for me. I'm going to try and get things done early this morning so I can enjoy a warmer day outside.

    Thanks. Just for today, I am going to complete something on my 'Get to it List. What is the name of the book you are reading?

  You know, that kind of thinking also helps when you have to get up (way, way too) early.

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

Made it to CURVES with Mom last night. I think I see her really slipping. We've been away from CURVES for awhile and it's a process to get her going again. Being gone those two weeks and her not being stimulated and in the house by herself for two weeks in the dark.....well need to get her going again. It's an ongoing process to keep her moving. Hubby taking her to Dr as she is limping and says she ran something through her shoe and into her heel. No mark in her shoe and no puncture in her heel but she thinks something is in it. She limps on and off. Told hubby maybe we need to get it checked. She perked right up when he called and told her appointment. Not sure if it's pay back for being gone. She is a hypochondriac. But just part of the process we get to go through.

Met co-worker who was off yesterday for coffee last night. She is just struggling with tough love for her son. They had to make a stand last week and now her son won't talk to her and she is making herself sick from it all. Had a nice chat and think she is better. She called Dr finally yesterday afternoon for medication as she has been crying constantly and is a mess...but think her getting out last night was good. She laughed some and didn't cry. Sometimes we need girl time.

Survived work and found out my computer has issues on our home network and it's not my computer. Home OFfice to rebuild my CITRIX sometime within the next few days and then hopefully I can print off receipts and releast policiies.

Off to make it a great day!

  


Ready to face the week!

Monday, March 05, 2012

Took the weekend off exercising. Was really achy and hurting yesterday. Maybe I should have worked out some.

Hubby went to work to see if he could fix my computer but he isn't able to so after 1 3/4 hours he called it quits. Will call the help desk this AM and see what might be going wrong.

Enjoyed massage Saturday. It is so relaxing and comforting.

Off to make it a great week!

  


Fabulous Friday

Friday, March 02, 2012

Well here we are at Friday! Cold finally decided to leave...yesterday didn't have to take cold medicine. Still blowing my nose but on the downhill side of it.

Went to hairdresser last night and got trimmed up and colored up. Went to Trader Joe's to stock up on healthy foods, sold back a big bag of books to second hand book store...busy evening.

Co Worker is really struggling with family issues. I think the co-workers problems help to really drain me. Came back refreshed to face it all. Guess I load it all on my back and half feel like I'm going through it also. Keeping her lifted in prayer and her family. She takes everything so hard and when it's your children it is so difficult. You just don't want to believe they would steal from you and it's breaking her heart. She's always enabled their poor money habits by her example and kept giving them money she didn't have. Now she needs to stay strong and have tough love and it is so hard for her. Either she stands strong now or they will go through much worse down the road.

Busy weekend...when aren't they?

Off to make it a great day!
