Fantastic Friday!

Friday, December 07, 2012

Had a nice evening with son. He came up to spend the day with hubby. They cut down a few trees in the back yard, burned our brush pile and worked on the truck some. Then I got to come home and we went out for dinner. It was nice to spend some time with him.

Around 15 days and daughter comes home. Planning to get trees decorated this weekend. I have work Christmas dinner Saturday night and car rally Sunday afternoon.

Off to make it a great day!

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Had an evening at home...was nice.

Son is coming up today to spend day with Dad. They are going to work on cutting down some dead trees and hopefully getting rid of our brush pile. Been telling us he'd come up some day and help. It will be nice to have him around. Was going to go out to dinner with them but forgot I have music practise with co-worker and then Praise Team Practise.

Been working on resume. After staff meeting not sure what I want to do...but I don't want to live with regrets...so will get resume off this week.

Have a Women's Leadership Luncheon today. The Christian School is bringing their choir to sing. Looking forward to the music to get me into the season.

Hoping to get some decorating Saturday morning. Hubby has parade saturday afternoon but told him last night I can't go. I can't do it all and he seems so disappointed. We have our work Christmas dinner that night and I need to practise piano and we have a road rally Sunday afternoon. Can't do it all. Going to start setting boundaries. Hopefully I follow through on that...

Off to make it a great day!

Wacky Me!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

WOW! Forgot the best part...got home around 9 pm last night and Hubby had the Christmas Tree up...I was amazed. It has been bothering me when I was going to have time to get it up. It isn't decorated but that is the easy part. So thankful! What an awesome husband!

Also our last Bible Study went so well. What a great group and how close we got. They want another one after the first of the year. What a blessing the group has been to me.

Terrific Tuesday!

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Have combined staff meeting this AM in our other office....Brainstorming for 2012. We are supposed to come with ideas to grow our agency. My ideas are ideas to make business run better and that would cause more outlay of monies and hubby said that's not the kind of things he's wanting. So plan to keep my mouth shut and add things as we see what he says. Not thinking he really wants ideas...he wants to tell us what he wants to do and have us buy into it. So we'll wait and see.

Last Bible Study class tonight. Been a good study...made me more aware of my growing more "unglued" at things. I know part of it is the crazy schedule I keep. It's wearing me down. I feel torn in all directions. Hubby puts pressure on me to do things with him and the car club...I want to spend time with him...feel pressure to do things with Mom as she doesn't get out unless we take her and we "never" take her out shopping...things I want to do with the church and things others want to pile on me to do....then there are things I want to get done around the house and do for me. Not sure how to get off the roller coaster right now. I know the season piles pressure on me too! Want to get everything done for the holidays and my daughter coming to visit.

Working on resume to get it sent out this week. Trying to find time to spend on updating it.

Not trying to complain. Know I need to cut somethings out and not feel so guilty. When I tell my hubby No I don't want to go with you...he always looks so sad. Every weekend he has us booked for things. He doesn't realize I can't keep up the pace and have everything else done too! I just run out of steam.

I know I carry a lot of stress from work around with me. I wake up thinking what I have to get done at work. That's why I love to just get away for a weekend or few days. It feels good not to have a schedule.

I have a passion for teaching Ladies Bible Studies yet I'm glad this one is over. It makes me accountable to stay in the Word. Not sure if I want to do one after the holidays or not. Usually the studies hit me right in the face with things I'm struggling with.

I need to carve out some time to reflect on 2012 and sets some goals for 2013 and see where I can cut back on things to slow things down some.

Off to make it a great day!

    The pressure to go, go, go is awful. Hard to take!

    Get rid of that pressure and press on to the mark of the high calling instead! Make today count, Kathleen, because we are never guaranteed tomorrow. If we do have a surety for the next day, what would Jesus suggest a priority for you?

    Kathleen, you need to tell everyone how stressed you are. Perhaps by spreading yourself out (something w/the hubby one wknd, something w/mom the next and so on) you will be able to come up with a compromise. We live in a fast paced world. I think for myself getting back to the basics is what it comes down to. When I think sometimes of what my ancestors did they had time for everything plus hard manual labor and still made it through.

I've already approached my family about Christmas next year and asked them instead of buying gifts for one another if we could instead pool that money and give it to a charity, even if it's only 5 - 10 dollars that's almost $200 to a charity. Forget it being all about me from now and start giving more.. That for me is my goal this next year.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.. Donna
