Tuesday Morning

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Had the final dress fitting on mom last night and everything looks good! Praise the Lord! Things are coming together. Looked at what she has laid out to take and everything looks good...except we added a button down shirt for when she gets her hair done. Now I need to start packing. Have a meeting tonight and then W and Th don't have anything scheduled. Will probably try to squeeze in exercise with mom before we leave. I exercise each AM but she doesn't...sometimes she walks but want to keep her moving.

  


Monday Morning

Monday, September 13, 2010

Well here we go...beginning of a busy week. Meetings every night! We fly out Friday at 6 am for Houston for my nephew's wedding. Been a long haul getting everyone ready for this trip. Hopefully we don't forget anything that matters. Have 6 pm meeting but hope to stop by mom's and have her try on the dress one last time afterwards. Looking forward to the week ahead...busy but we will get through it. Short trip as we return Sunday night at midnight and off to work on Monday and my best friend and her mom will be here Sunday afternoon sometime so have to have the house ready for company. Ha! Ha! makes life interesting huh! Just how everyone's schedule works out...oh well! emoticon

    Wow makes me sound like I am standing still (or should I say sitting since I am in a powerchair). Have a great time while you are away and we will all be thinking about you. emoticon emoticonLynne

    I agree w/Nana2, hopefully all your weeks won't be as "packed" as this one is! But you sound on top of it and ready. Of course time will tell. Nah....kiddin'. Be relaxed esp about your company. They are coming to see you and will overlook your house. Company can sense that tension and feel maybe uncomfortable so just enjoy... Of course easy for me to say. Wishing for a fantastic week and wkend!!! Brenda

Had great time with daughter in law, mom and me getting our pedicures in preparation for wedding next weekend. Good spending time together. Then met up with my son and husband for dinner. Took mom home and then went out to return some things and drive around. Nice evening. Off to play the piano at church today and then spend time with hubby.

    I didn't know you played the piano! I miss hearing my dd play. When my middle dd was back east she use to call me,then set the phone down and play for me.

Pedicures with family is so fun!

Well we have success here. Took mom out shopping and we finally found "THE PURSE" to go with the dress. Got home around 9:30 and stayed up and finished hemming "THE DRESS" for the wedding. Got to iron it today...but I think I'm about finished ...oh and took her to the salon to get her eye brows tweezed. Oh and found her new face powder last night. Guess the total day was more successful than I thought mmmmm!

Now to clean the house...because the night we get back from the trip to TX my best friend and her mom will already be here. I have meetings about every evening this week ...so not too much cleaning during the week.

This afternoon having a treat with mom and daughter in law for pedicures. My reward for a busy couple of weeks...

Friday

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.
