Crunch Week

Monday, April 02, 2012

Got a lot of cleaning done over the weekend and even some yard work. Son and daughter in law coming to stay the night Saturday and then good friends are coming to stay a week with us on Saturday. Trying to get things in shape, my grocery and menu lists made and organized. Didn't get as much as I wanted done but got all I could get in. Baked some cookies last night to get that out of the way.

Been awhile since I've cooked a holiday meal. We usually go to daughter in law's. So want to make sure I've got it covered. Plus son and daughter in law have to leave for her side of the family celebration around 1 so trying to figure out how to get it all ready the day before so I can heat up the ham in the crockpot and have most of it ready after church. The challenge is on.

Mom doing better with her foot. It's her BD this week so trying to juggle around my schedule to make time to take her to dinner Thursday night. We will celebrate it Saturday along with my friend Betty's and my son's BD but also want to make her day special.

Off to make it a great week and measure what I eat!

Getting some pre-holiday cleaning done for company coming this week and trying to get my grocery/menu all put together. Son and daughter in law coming to stay the night but other friends coming to stay a week.

Ran to gift shop and picked up some presents as having 3 birthday celebrations Saturday evening.

Today achy all over..but pushing through to get things in order. Seems like Saturdays are my best day to get things done.

    Company coming always causes some stress and lots of work to prepare but is so worth it! Enjoy every minute and have great birthday celebrations and Easter week.

Fabulous Friday

Friday, March 30, 2012

Well we made it to Friday. Work has been better I'm finally cranking out policies. Had staff meeting over lunch yesterday. We're are doing better than ever writing polocies. Told co-worker with other girl now part time...we can create an environment where we can work now and get it done. Still not loving my job. But determined to bloom where I am planted for this season.

Hubby has phone interview next week. Praying God will bless us with him getting a job/career.

Not sure how well I'll do this week. Had dinner out twice and two lunchs out. Haven't gotten in my lunchtime walks. Hope to get in a walk at lunch and depending on when I get off work tonight another workout at Curves. They close early on Friday and we often get slammed and work late on Fridays.

The weekend will be spent on cleaning the house as next weekend we have a housefull of company. Some friends of ours are staying a week but son and daughter in law just for the weekend.

Off to make it a great day!

    Good morning Kathleen. WooHoo.. Yes we finally did make it to Friday. YEAH!!!! It has been a long week. Don't you just love policies? YUCK!!! Hope you made wise choices on those meals you had to eat out. Every little bit counts.

FYI.. Don't forge heavy cleaning is also exercise and can be tracked on your fitness tracker. If I do several hours worth I usually count at least 60 min.

Have a great day emoticon Donna

Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Had a wonderful evening with son and daughter in law....but ohh a little tired this AM Didn't want to crawl out of bed but finally made it out.

Hope to get in a noon time walk outside and Curves tonight.

We at dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. Had grilled chicken, asparagus but slipped with their brown that stuff and half of a carrot cheesecake. But I drank water and making better choices and yet still letting myself have some of the goodies of life. All the food tasted so good.

Off to make it a great day!


Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Had a short night with a club meeting. Afterwards at dinner chose snap peas instead of chips or fries..really liked it better. Small steps, baby steps but all steps towards my goal.

Meeting up with Son and Daughter-in law half way for dinner. Looking forward to time with them. Been awhile since we've seen them.

Off to make it agreat day!
