Well here we are to the end of my work week. About packed. Will leave straight after work to head back for 35th reunion. Looking forward to time alone to reflect and think about goals and where I'm at. Not a bad thing...over the years I've read about people who take out time to look at where they are and where they are heading and reflect. I have found in my life God puts those moments. I just hope I make good use of the time and not let it fritter away.

Work has been busy. Have a business expo to set up for on Tuesday. Have to redesign things and have them printed out and laminated. I find it hard to do at work. I need to focus on it and there seems to be something always going on and interruptions, phone calls end up doing it in the evening....and by them I'm wiped out. I know I'm not getting enough sleep..yet don't know how to fit any more in. I get up early to get things done and by 9 or 10 pm I'm dragging. Try to get in bed around 10 if possible and that's only 7 hours of things to ponder over the weekend. Need to get back traking food again. I'm pretty consistent with's become a part of my day. Breakfast and lunch I do ok on...dinner...sometimes I'm dead tired and we go out or eat something quick at home. Have to rethink that too. Used to come home for lunch and now can't do that. Used to put dinner on at lunch time...and can't do have to rethink that too! Much to ponder and reflect on.

Why does change seem to upset your life?

On to the weekend!

    Since you won't read this probably until you get back from your reunion. I sincerly hope you had a great time and also time to relax and relect. emoticon I am glad work seems to be getting a little easier although it does sound like a lot going on there also. You know what Kathleen change bothers us all I think, so I don't think you should feel bad about it. It all just takes time to get used to. You will also get into how to pack your lunches and get your dinner done. Do you have a slow cooker? Maybe you can make your meals at night, and then just turn it on it the morning and it would then be ready for dinner that night. Just a suggestion. Anyway know you are in my thoughts and prayers are with you. emoticon emoticon emoticonLynne

It has been a crazy week...not getting home to stay until 9 pm or later. Then I just want to fall into bed...Spent some time trying to work on Expo display for Tuesday but kept falling asleep last night.

Will have to get packed for my trip this pm sometime. I leave Thursday after work! Work has been crazy too! Having meeting today at new location to define everyone's jobs.

These are exciting times but chaotic times too! Trying to keep my head above water and to keep moving forward.

The week is whizzing by and it seems there is never enough time to get everything done.

Got to get to work on trade show which is next Tuesday. Boss wants me to work in another office on Monday so won't have time work on exhibit that day as will need to be in that office covering for soemone else.

Think my new office is getting more settled. I still come home exhausted. Had to go back in and work on my computer last didn't eat until 9:30 or so last night. Did get mom to exercise after work though.

Looking forward to trip back for 35th class reunion. Am hoping to get some down time and rest and visit with remaining family.

Off to begin the day

Made it through the weekend. Boy they just blow through fast. Didn't get any house cleaning done :( oh well.

Ready to start the week. Will be shorter as taking Friday off to go to my 35th class reunion about 8 hours away. Will be driving by myself. Am looking forward to taking time for myself to reflect, look at my goals, spend time with God etc. Also looking forward to visiting with my last remaining aunt and uncle, brother and old family friend. Also looking forward to spending time with classmates. We no longer try to impress each other...just thankful we have made it this far. Quite a few are professional muscians and they are supposed to have a jam session sometime during the weekend! Going to Friday night football game..boy that will bring back old memories..

Went in a couple of times to work on my office and it is taking shape nicely. Hubby put in wireless mouse and keyboard and that cleaned up my small office with less cables We put up some pictures and cork board on the wall...starting to look like my office...just much smaller

Took mother-in-law to decorator showcase house yesterday. Decorators decorated an 1880 home. It was gorgeous. So beautiful and the view from the windows was gorgeous. She really enjoyed it. Stopped by farm market afterwards and purchased pumpkins and gourds. Mom really enjoys things like that...just haven't had time to do much with her recently. She really perks up when I do something like that with her. Then went for coffee. Hubby met up with us after his train flee market. We had a good time. Then took mom home and hubby and I went back to my office to finish up some things...and then took a drive. The leaves are starting to turn and it feels like fall.

Ready to start the week...

    I'm so glad you MADE time to fit in some time with your MIL. You could have found an excuse this time too but you went & some of your reward was your enjoyment of hers. It takes such small things to please them and usually costs only in time and maybe gas or lunch. I regret the time I didn't take with my mom & mil as they are both with the Lord.
You will so enjoy the ftball game (unless very cold. Not sure where you live but it is fall evenings ya know!!
Also enjoy spending time with the BAND and your friends. At these times there will never be the same group be together again. Someone will be missing--maybe just unable to come. Don't know why I'm sounding negative. REally don't mean too. Just know our days are slipping away and we want to make the most of our time w/dear friends.

    Glad to hear you had a good weekend, although it doesn't sound like you got much rest and relaxation for yourself. I hope you have a great time at your reunion. Isn't it nice that you don't have to impress each other, you can just enjoy each other. Let us know how it went when you get back okay? God Bless Lynne
