Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Had early morning meeting so didn't get on the computer.

Booked a flight to Florida for a long weekend Jan 25 - 28. Daughter has appointments to try on wedding dresses. Looking forward to time together...I know it's been so long huh! (just left Jan 1) but will be exciting to see her try on dresses. Having been on the grooms side I want to make sure we reach out to the grooms side also. Daughter is including his Mom and Step-Mom as they all get along to go with us when she tries on dresses. Did that with daughter in law and was such a special time. Kinda gets everyone involved in the process and seem more real. I remember when she tried on "the dress" and asked her mom what she thought of that dress and her mom and sister were was "the dress". It was gorgeous. Wonder if we'll get that experience?

Exciting things in store this year. EJ is a great guy. Couldn't ask for a better future son in law.

Off to make it a great day!

    Hope you had a great day at work and you are right what a special time this is for all of you and if you are getting a great son-in-law that's even a bigger plus. May their union be filled with much joy. Donna

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Had a nice dinner out with hubby last night for our anniversary!

Planning to get back to Curves tonight after work. Having neck and shoulder issues from being on a keyboard all day. I think when I was going to Curves more regularly it helped relieve some neck and shoulder tension. Just been so busy with the holidays I didn't carve time out for it. Not sure if I'll take Mom or not yet.

Off to make it a great day!

  The holidays are busy for us all. You might go to Curves by yourself first, and next time take Mom.

    Good morning Kathleen. If you're like me (and we sound a lot alike) you get sore when you don't move. Meaning of course exercise. WooHoo....go to the gym the first couple times by yourself, then start taking mom back with you... emoticon Donna

Magnificient Monday!

Monday, January 07, 2013

Got a lot of my Christmas decorations packed away.

Today is our 35 wedding anniversary. How the years have flown!

Co-worker comes back today. It will be nice to have someone else in the office. Co-worker always has drama in her life so haven't missed all that.

Off to make it a great day!

Fabulous Friday

Friday, January 04, 2013

Have made it through the holidays with little/no weight gain. That's a surprise! We keep taking steps towards our goals. Wait...I'll get on the scale in the AM and show an huge increase emoticon . I have been fluctuating up and down around a pound or two. Better than packing on 5 - 10 pounds over the holidays. Interesting how I missed some of the heathier foods. Missed some of the veggies I usually have. Interesting.

Co-worker comes back Monday. I've made it through the weeks without her. It's been busy at times but we made it through it far. We'll see what today brings emoticon

One of my goals is a box of Christmas things packed each weeknight until I get it all packed up. If I want to do more on the weekend that's OK. Want to organize the boxes some as I usually just pack it in on top of everything. Maybe condense some things and get rid of things that don't work any more.

Off to have a great day!

No news on job application. Gets me how you never hear yeh or nay anymore. Guess they get too many applications now days. Oh well we keep plugging and looking around to see what is out there. At least I have a job while I'm looking. Last year my goal was to change my attitude....and that didn't work so figured it was time to look around.

    Hi! Congrats on maintaining over the holidays.
Your goal of packing away one box at a time resonated with me. It's such a simple idea that can't NOT work for me. I've been looking around and feeling overwhelmed by the magnitude of the job, instead of just breaking it down into manageable parts. One of those DUH moments. Good luck to you, thanks for the sharing

    I was really waiting to hear from you this morning and wanted to hear update of you and DH job search. I really believe it opens up in January because of budgets. Maybe I am old school?

A pound or two weight flux is, mm, mm good!

  You are on the right track. A few pounds up or down is much better than gaining 5 or 10 pounds. You have to keep shooting those resumes out and wait and wait. You will succeed!

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Had 7 am dental appointment and got out as home was on my way...came home to spend the extra hour before work this morning.

Getting hair cut after makes for a long evening...but get to stop by Trader Joe's. That's always fun!

Two more days by myself and then co-worker is back. Been busy but not too bad...was really tired last night.

Off to make it a fantastic day!
