Sunday Morning

Sunday, September 09, 2012

Made it through the car show. Got to walk around so it wasn't so boring. Didn't buy anything just walked. Was a gorgeous day! Came home and had a nice chat on the phone with my daughter. Only 18 more days and she'll be home....looking forward to time with her again.

Today open house for Mom's retirement community at 4 pm. Makes for a hectic day and a weekend gone before I know it. Praise Team this morning at 8:30 - 12:00.

Off to Praise God!

Fabulous Friday!

Friday, September 07, 2012

Dragged myself to work this AM....you just never know how it will go. Boss came and stayed for 1/2 the day. Been working on remembering a policy holder's name. I used to know it...but last time I posted it on my bulletin board..when he came in I said...why there is............He clutched his heart and said...know I know I'm important. People care when you can name them by name. Also remembered another policy holders name. Today I was on a roll. Those things really made my day. I made a difference to someone else. Felt good.

Got a letter from my cousin...my visit to my aunt really made her day. It did me a world of good. Need to call her and made an effort to send a note more often. I let life get in the way...at 90 who knows how much more time she has.

Was listening to motivational blog tonight...when we start giving back to others...our lives change. Maybe I need to focus on that at work...helping others instead of plodding through each day...struggling to get through each day. Instead focus on helping others and see where that takes me...Really working on my attitude this year and it's been a struggle. I used to be more optimistic...but just feel tired. Don't feel like I"m able to do what I'd like to do and end up doing things I'm not good at and it fills up my time.....things to ponder.

Have a car show with hubby tomorrow. May catch up with son and daughter in law sometime in there if it works out.

Need to practice music for Sunday....

Adventure over - back to work

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Made it home around 7 pm last night. We had a wonderful time. Got to visit with my 90 year old aunt. She is such an upbeat person. She doesn't look 90 and certainly doesn't act like it.. She walks to nursing home daily to visit my uncle. Always has a smile. She said Monday was Laborless Day. What a graceful way to age...

We went shopping one day, visited my aunt and my best friend's Mom and brother and on Tuesday we adventured to 2 of the 4 covered bridges in Missouri. What a shame people have to write graffity and one had a lot on it but the other one was in better shape. What fun to adventure and explore new places.

Really relaxed. On the trip home I felt so calm. Lots of laughter and fun. My friend's Mom is 83 and she is aging gracefully. She is so much fun. Quite a character. They motivate me to age still having fun in my life. You never get too old for that.

Will be at work by myself this AM. Co-worker going to district meeting with boss until 1 pm or so. Hard to want to get back to work. Have a long evening as we have Praise Team practise tonight

Off to make it a fun filled day with a right attitude!

    Sounds like you enjoyed yourself. I just came through Sikeston, MO over the weekend. Where are the bridges? I'm looking for a place to stop on the way to Ohio next year.

Craziy Saturday

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Got home from reception set up around 9:30. Huge tent 30 x 90. First thought they'd built another addition. Will go out at 10 am to set up things on the tables and decorate with the fresh cut flowers. It will be a pretty wedding.

Rehearsal dinner was just a cook out at their house. It was a warm evening but it was fun talking and enjoying the countryside..as they live in the county and it's just quiet and nice.

Thought I'd sleep in some as I don't have to leave until 9:30 but surprise woke up at 5:00 so might as well get a jump start.

Still need to pack for our trip. Planning to set up for reception come home and change for the wedding...pick mom up...go to wedding and reception for awhile...come home change put the suitcases in the car and head for our trip to visit our best friends..

Hubby's interview went well. They said he would hear from them if they want to proceed forward...if not he won't hear from them. Not sure if they will help with relocation or what type of package they might offer. Guess we will see. One step at a time. They work 12 hour days 6 days a week. Don't know if I'm ready for that again....hubby was in manufacturing around 10 years ago...that is a tough life...not much time for family life. We'll see what God has in store for us. Guess we are both open to changing our lives. Just praying that God lead us and give us direction for our lives.

Off to make it a great day!
