Friday

Friday, September 10, 2010

It is Friday morning and I have made it through the week! I kinda had a melt down yesterday...let stress get to me...stress I'd heaped on myself. Got the mailing about done at work...just cleaning up a few extras...so that's off my back. Worked out with mom last night...that probably helps relieve extra stress even though I worked out each morning. Made it through Praise Team Practise with a help of a large coffee and it kept me awake to do a few things at home when I got home. Went to Women's Leadership Luncheon yesterday and a wonderful guest speaker spoke on "Stress" how appropriate! She is a comedian and helped us laugh at all we do to ourselves. Maybe she helped relieve stress too! Ready to tackle the weekend! Mother in law, daughter in law and I are going for pedicures and manicures in prepartion for the wedding trip to Houston next weekend. It will be fun for the three of us to relax for awhile. Gotta get the house cleaned up. We leave next Friday morning for Texas for the wedding and get back Sunday and my best friend and her mom will be arriving same night...so we can prepare for the garage sale that week. Crazy schedule but that was the only time everyone's schedule would work out! Oh well...we will survive it. My best friend and her mom will just have to love me and my house the way we are..and they will...

    We went to a wedding south of Houston last December and everything kept falling apart at home. Came home to flooded basement.

Still tired today. Worked late so took mom shopping for two hours looking for purse for wedding...with no luck. UGH! Took her by McDonalds for chicken selects but didn't buy any for myself. Learning to make better choices. Worked in the garage moving things around and then worked on work for an hour and then collapsed into bed. Crazy week! Be glad for the weekend to maybe catch up on some sleep and work on mom's dress.

Wednesday Morning

Made it through the day yesterday. Boy was I tired. Working on a large mailing for work. Went with co-worker to Rape Awareness Defense classes held by local police. My co-worker signed us up for this about 2 months ago. It is a bad time for me to go but could probably learn from it. Got so many irons in the fire and wore out from the weekend! Had trouble keeping my eyes open. Got home around 10 and then worked on some things for work until 11:15. Have a terrible time getting enough sleep at night. Seems like I go through cycles...either I can't sleep at night or can't get enough sleep. If I sleep later in the AM can't get exercise in..so it's a viscous cycle. After work will take mom to exercise and then out to look for purse for wedding. Just seems like not enough hours in the day.

  


Tuesday Morning

Had a great weekend! Went by too fast as I thought it would. Didn't get as much done as I wanted. Worked on mom's dress...a lot but am fighting with the hemming of it. Thought that would be the easy part! The outer layer is so sheer and ravels. It will not beat me thought. Hubby wanted to head out to outlet mall yesterday so we jumped into the car and took off. It was fun and relaxing. Now off to a busy week. Will try to get the dress finished this week. Stopped by and saw son and daughter-in-law yesterday evening. It was good to see them for a couple of hours.

Sunday Morning

Sunday, September 05, 2010

Went to Farmer's Market, got the sleeves put back in mom's dress. Took 3 hours. The fabric ravels UGH! But I got it done and they look nice. Trimmed some off the hem and will have her retry it on before I put in the hem to make sure the length is correct. Went to my friend's cookout to see her daughter back from Iraq. Had a nice time. Her mother also passed away...who lived in Vermont with her sister and family...(why we recently took a girl's roadtrip to Vermont) so my friend has all her family there. WIll help with funeral dinner this afternoon. A blessing after 8 years with Alzheimers. On Praise Team this month at church so gotta get going this AM and get there early for practise. Hopefully I'll get some practise at home before I leave this morning. Hubby wants to get away Monday for the day so hopefully I can get the dress finished today!

    You sound like a busy woman. Sorry to hear about your friend's mom. Alzheimers is a horrible disease, especially for the family, and I pray they find peace.
