Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Off to early morning meeting for my boss. Resume is about ready to go out. Interesting the emotions I go through with this. It's like my mind has to be ready to walk away. Feel like I have to try it so I live with no regrets.

Stopped by Mom's last night to see her tree. Hubby set it up and we bought bulbs for her to put on it. It has been a challenge for her but she has done it and it looks nice. Seeing her struggle more with things. Putting stamps on wrong side of envelope etc. Want to challenge her and keep her active. The more activities we can keep her doing the happier she seems to be. She has little decorations all over her house we keep gifting to her. She has little balls and decorations in all her crystal pieces. Makes my heart feel good that she is taking a little interest in her surroundings. Works us to keep coming up with activities for her to do that don't overwhelm her and frustrate her too much. She has really been a downer saying she can't do anything and we should put her away.

Planning to finish up resume tonight and get it sent off. Then maybe can get back to work on the house. Time is going quickly.

Been doing well at eating within calorie limits. Seeing the scale go down some. Drinking lots of water too.

Off to make it a great day!

  You are a great motivator and God will bless you for it. Best wishes in your new job search. The time to send them out is while you still have a job. Good for you!

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Had a nice evening at home. Worked on the resume. Planning to get it submitted this week and then it's in God's hands what happens. At least I won't live with regrets. If it turns out I want to stay where I am...at least I have looked. Who knows now days I may never hear anything from it.

Been kinda quiet at work. We've been busy but with the holidays things get slower. Co-worker is off from Dec 21 - Jan 7. Hoping she has a good time off.

About 2 weeks until daughter comes home....exciting news...EJ asked both her dad and I if he can ask her to marry her!!!! He is such a wonderful guy. Been praying for him since I was carrying her. So not sure when it will all happen but sometime during the holiday he's going to ask her with all of us around.

So a lot of exciting things happening ahead of us....

Things are slowing down so hopefully I can get some more work done around the house tonight...time is gettng short before all the festivities begin!

Off to make it a super day!

    Thank you for sharing your news I am a mother of three daughters they are too young still to know my hopes and dreams for them but what is most important is God's plan for them. I worry that families are losing those traditional values that unite one another and strengthens our bonds.

I hope all the best blessings for you and your family today.

Magnificient Monday

Monday, December 10, 2012

Had a good weekend. Got a lot of puttering done around the house Saturday. Had nice work dinner Saturday night. Church, lunch with Mom and then off to car rally. I went with another lady..hubby had helped plan the course. Then we did some shopping around. Got gift card for daughter in law's birthday. Found a cute snowman to put on the mantle. Had a nice time with hubby.

Came home and lowered a pair of pants for Mom. I didn't want her to buy the petites a while back but she insisted...,now I'm lowering them because they are water waders. Of course she'd worn them to church (black pants) with white socks so she glowed. She's an interesting creature. But we work with her and love her. Hubby setting up a Christmas tree for her. Been a long time since she's put one up. Ask her if we put up an extra tree we have if she'd let us and then she could decorate it. She said OK so that is on of hubby's jobs today. Although hubby says it makes more work for us...she is able to decorate still if we set it all up and will give her something to do for the holiday. She has decorated some around her house with little trinkets. She seems in pretty good spirits. Try to keep her busy and active during the holidays so they are more pleasant. Asked her what she wanted for Christmas...she said what she can't have...her kids around her. I told her "we're your kids" and she said...you are always around...my Becky. Then I feel bad and talk to hubby about maybe flying her daughter out this summer or something. But he reminded me that maybe we should plan to go to Texas and see the upcoming new Granddaughter coming this summer and see them all at once. He said she has to want to come see her Mom too! Strange family dynamics. I want them all to be one happy family and maybe it just doesn't work that way. So we'll see.

Off to make it a great week!

    Hard to say what crosses a person's mind throughout the wonderful Christmas season. As long as it is not deep and dark depression, we can indeed make this another grand Christmas!

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!
