Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Daughter coming home tomorrow evening! YES! She's coming home for a week. It's her 10 year class reunion and friends wedding, her dad's (my hubby's) birthday...she's just hitting all kinds of events coming home. Will be good to have her home. My daughter in law is traveling to Turkey for work so my son will also come home for the weekend and he's taking Monday off to spend with his sister. I'm planning to work most of the week as I'm about out of time off...two days left...trying to squeeze all I can out of it. Planning to take off a day next week for us to have a girls' day out and go shopping in a little town with antiques and gifts and just have a day to ourselves.

Son surprised us and they had a cancellation last night and wanted to meet up for dinner half way. Had a nice evening with them...ate too much of course but it was good to catch up with them. Their nephew is a freshman and they were going to take him to get a tux for homecoming dance but his girlfriend broke up with him...but he got another date so now they will take him tonight. They are so active in her neices and nephew's lives. Her sister and her husband aren't employeed so it's good that they take such an interest in their lives. I'm glad they are giving to others even when they so desire a little one of their own.

Office having a staff lunch meeting and I'm in charge of picking up lunch for everyone. Three of us are ordering from World Cafe and ordering healthy wraps and hummus...so we'll see how it goes. Co-worker with Celiac and boss are getting food from Fox's Pizza. They offer a gluten free pizza for co-worker.

Been a crazy week and out every night until 10:30 or so...gotta cut that out....but think it's a week for that...as daughter comes in around 10:30 tomorrow night. Planning to take Mom to Curves tonight and get in one workout there this week.

Off to make it a great day!

Magnificient Monday

Monday, September 24, 2012

Finally feeling better...still sore...been awhile since I've had a bad headache. I went to bed with a nagging headache but thought going to bed would get rid of it...NOT. Should have known better.

Hubby got some painting done on the deck. It's a big one so it's taking time and working around the weather.

Daughter coming home Thursday night! Can't wait to get my arms around her. She met up with her former roomate who is now pregnant and talked to her first roomate who she moved to Florida with. Both girls have taken different turns in their lives but glad my daughter dealt with the past and is moving on. Both girls were a big part of her life but they choose to live a different life than my daughter.

Busy day...when isn't it? Work then planning to take Mom to Curves after work and then to club meeting afterwards. Have to squeeze in some time to finish up some projected cleaning before daughter gets here.

Off to make it a great day!

Getting some much needed house cleaning done in preparation for daughter's arrival next Thursday!

  


Fabulous Friday

Friday, September 21, 2012

Made it through Thursday! Thankfully the day wasn't too crazy. Got in a noontime walk. Saw a snake for my second day. They have both been little and probably wanting the warmth of sunshine....but not liking to come upon them. Not too crazy about snakes. Gets my adrenaline going ha! ha!

Met up with co-worker for her voice lessons afer work. Because of a difficult situation at church there has to be 3 people around when there is a male/female situation. She is wanting to be on our Praise Team and music minister is working with her. She's kind rough around the edges and very country which isn't bad but he's trying to smooth off her rough spots. Teaching her to sing on key etc. She's coming a long. A slow process...her husband has a country band and she sings with them. She is also having to learn to listen to others instead of belting out the song. Hoping to help her get plugged in some place and find her nitch...

Fabulous Friday...we'll see what today brings. Wonder if there will be any snakes on my noontime walk today???

Hubby finally started painting/staining our deck. He's had it cleaned for awhile. He is so meticulous...the engineer in him. Neither one of us like to paint. At this stage it will take him a year to get it done. He's put it off so long now the weather is an issue. He got 3 sections of railing done yesterday. Then with the threat of rain we had to cover it all up last night as they told him it needs 24 hours before rain can touch it. It will be a good job when he's done but slow.

Daughter comes home next weekend. Also hubby's birthday. Guess I should think of something to do for him....

Off to make it a great day and see what wildlife I'll see at work (ha ha) and my noon time walk!

    Fortunately we only have garter snakes. Equally DH only waterproofs the deck once a year.
Very odd about the voice lesson/ church happening. Went though that about youth group though years ago and it is hurtful for these "man made" rules in the church.
Looks like a great weekend!
