Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

The week is going fast. Starting to pack for the long weekend. Got Mom to Curves last night. Hubby had taken her grocery shopping yesterday and she was tired but she made it through working out. Doing a little better on the machines now that we are going more regularly.

Hubby has job interview on Friday...it all happens at once. Mixed feelings as it's too far away to drive each day....would mean a move...been a long while since he's had an interview and it's an in person interview...so we'll see what God has planned for us. Wouldn't be our preference...and 2.5 hour farther away from upcoming grandbaby...what to do with Mom...move her in with us or look for another place for her and move would be disruptive to her....would mean a lot of decisions...but it's just an interview for now. So we will trust God to lead us where he wants us. The interview would be good experience for him too.

We have the wedding rehearsal dinner that night and setting up for wedding reception...so will be a little crazy Friday night. Things usually happen all at once with us

Off to Serve The Lord wherever He takes me today!

  Your vacation will give you time to rest, and when we are quiet God speaks. Maybe that is what you need.

    Holiday will give you much time to think. Still exciting that DH got an offer. My hubby who was in that unemployable position got offers about an hour away. Lots of stress and that is less than you Dh needs to consider. I would not move. I did it once and it doesn't make sense at the age involved. Perhaps they have an offer closer or can recommend someone with his credentials a lead.
Who knows where this might go? I don't but God does as He works things out for your family.

    The Lord takes us to places we have never seen before. Tell hubby good luck on the job interview. Could be Kathleen if this happens it's the better thing for everyone involved. Does the new town have a Curves??? Have a great day ~ Donna

Marvelous Monday

Monday, August 27, 2012

Had a good weekend! Got some work done on projects at home. Needed to do that. Got my car vacuumed and windows cleaned and new floor mats put in. Got some much needed yard work done in the back yard. We even took a ride through the countryside yesterday. Always enjoy that. Resisted the urge to stop by for icecream or eating out and just enjoyed the ride.

Got the the Farmer's Market Saturday Morning and got the sweetest Cantelope. Cooked up some summer squash for the week and also made some green beans and new potatos to eat on for this week. Makes night time cooking quicker if I already have some things ready to go except warming them up. Hopefully will help me stay within calorie ranges this week.

Off to a busy week. Looking forward to friend's wedding but really looking forward to getting away for a few days to see our BFF's. I always relax and laugh a lot and have fun. Hoping to see my 90 year old Aunt and Uncle. Praying Mom can handle being here without us for a few days and not make us pay when we get back. She is doing well right now and getting around so much better. Planning to get her to Curves 2-3 times this week and that's always good for her once we get back into the routine. Amazing me how much that perks her up. Seems to be better with keeping her days straight and in better humor.

Off to make it a great day!

Saturday

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Planning a day of working around the house. Hubby wants help powerwashing the tall part of our deck. I will be the ladder holder and fetcher. We need to get it done before too long so we can get to putting the stain back on before winter.

Will be good to stay around home and get some much need work done.

Next weekend helping with friend's daughter's outdoor wedding and then we are taking off to spend some time with out BFF's. Wonder what adventures we will get into. Looking forward to a few days off work..need the break and rest.

Off to make it a great day!

    Your blog reminded me of that commercial where that guy power washes his deck and everything else around it because he couldn't control the washer.. Gave me a emoticon Have a great day. Enjoy your weekend. Donna

Fabulous Friday

Friday, August 24, 2012

Had a vendor lady come into our office and ask us if she could bring us lunch...we agreed and she brought Mexican for us...because co-worker has celiac and she can easily eat some Mexican. She was a very nice lady. But didn't get to eat my lunch and go for noon time walk. I feel so guilty and restless because I didn't get the walk in. Did get Mom to Curves where we worked out after work. Think the Mexican food stuffed me...I was so tired all afternoon. Finally got home and we went to gas up my car and then came home and fell asleep on the couch...went to bed at 10..read a book for awhile and then went to sleep and slept through the night until 5 minutes before the alarm goes off...so was really tired from something.

Planning to get my noontime walk in today...

Off to making it a great day!

    Our bodies need rest as well as our minds.

    Don't feel guilty - you already had your mind set on resuming your routine, so you shouldn't beat yourself up over that!

    Good morning Kathleen. Hope your day goes GREAT. Most likely your Mexican food had a lot of carbs and that's the reason you were so tired. I miss my exercise too when I can't get it in. Donna

  Mexican food can be heavy, and it is easy to feel sluggish. Rest is what you needed.

    You are letting the Holy Spirit control your life by trusting Him that you can get what NEEDS to be done each day. Good on the exercise!

Good Night's Rest and ready to face the day

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Had a good night's sleep and ready to hit the road running. Still feeling allergies dragging me down...but we will push through it.

I've taken Mom to Curves twice this week and planning to go again tonight. Exercise does us both good.

Off to make it a great day!
