Up early today. Used to have problems with that and was just thinking..."Man it's been a long while since I had these middle of the night wakings!" Well guess they are back...or they are this AM Got an early meeting off site and I'm in charge of the McDonald's run for the staff! Have to get some things together and maybe that was on my mind. Was afraid I couldn't get everything ready for the early meeting.

Went to exercise last night but Mom was dizzy so when half way around and left as she was sitting on the sidelines looking icky. So took her home after picking her up something to eat at fast food (I didn't buy anything for me) and sat with her awhile. Don't know if it was low blood sugar or what. Had stopped by during the day and she was eating soup so I think she was eating some yesterday. We try to keep watch that she does eat. This is the season/month Dad passed away so we are trying to watch her and see how she's doing. We are gone again this weekend to visit friends in Evansville about 4 hours away...wonder if she'll pull...I'm she already knows we're leaving...or if she's puny because she's thinking of dad. She perked up after drinking a vanilla shake some. Hubby came by when he got home and we sat with her until 7:15 or so and she perked up. Wonder if it was sugar. Not sure how much she's eating. Will have to keep an eye on it. She isn't diabetic but if she doesn't eat right wonder how that will impact her. Thought she was having a GOOD DAY...when I stopped in she told me she had driven to the Post Office to mail a package. That is the FIRST TIME in two years she has driven by herself. She did drive my hubby to church Sunday at his suggestion...but it's been a year or so since she has even done that. Thinks she can't do it or she'll get lost. We have been super busy recently and don't have time to run her around a lot. We get her out a couple times a week but not as often as she would like. There just isn't time.

Looked as someone else's blog and they talked about office moves and how their eating habits were slipping. It made me reflect on the past few months of changes and office move and hectic schedule. Trying to make good choices but eating on the run and have been out of town and notice I'm packing it back on, Life has just been crazy recently. I have been keeping up with exercising but not as much at night time with mom as I'd like to. Like I said we're gone this weekend and next weekend I'll be gone to visit a friend who lives about 2 1/2 hours away as her hubby is diagnosed with terminal cancer and I haven't been to visit her in a couple of years and want to spend some time with them and see how she's doing. I still have garage sale stuff to put away. Guess it will still be here when I get back to a slower pace in a few weeks.

Time away at my class reunion was relaxing and good last weekend...but now it seems a long time ago.

Having lunch with an old neighbor today. She has gone through a rough divorce and is finally at peace with her life and moving on.

Best get one with the day...

    Hope your lives slow down a little soon for you Kathleen. You have been very busy lately with the office move, Expo, Class Reunion etc. etc.! Taking time away to visit your friends could be good for you. Remember to be good to yourself, you deserve it. Hope you have a good time this weekend and next when you visit your friend. Take time for yourself. Love and God Bless. emoticon emoticonLynne

Well we made it through the EXPO and everything went smooth except we ran out of door prize drawing tickets and my boss went back to the office (thankfully our one office is pretty close by) and made more. Got home around 8 pm and tired. We made it through another show successfully done. Still trying to learn boss. I'm not sure what makes him "tick" yet. Guess I take him at his word.Set the alarm but somehow we overslept this AM. Rarely happens but sure did on with the day!

    Glad your Expo was a success. It must make you feel good. Tired I can believe, you have been through a lot the last couple of weeks. I hope your day today was a quieter one. Taking your boss at face value is the best thing to do. Only after time and exposure will you can truly understand a little bit of what makes him tick. Remember to be good to yourself, you deserve it. emoticon emoticon emoticonLynne

    I'm glad everything went OK at the show. Taking the new boss at face value is probably best.

I hope you have a quiet day today to recover from yesterday.

Well think I've got everything ready for the EXPO today. Got everything printed, laminated and velcro'd. Put it up on the display...took I'll remember where everything goes..and packed it up. Hubby will help me load it today. Will work in another office today and head out around 1 to set it up. Have to have it ready by 3:30. At 3:30 all the business' people walk around and network and then from 4:30 - 7:30 we have the public. Then 7:30 we pack up and go home....makes for a different day but good one. Like getting out of the office and meeting people.

    Good luck with the trade show Kathleen. Good to get out and meet people. It is good for self preservation some times, just to know how good you are at something. I will be thinking about you, have a good time and be good to yourself. emoticon emoticonLynne

Good Morning! Made it home safely. Got home around 7:30 but by 9:30 was ready for bed. Tired this AM but up and at it.

Had a good time and felt rested and relaxed...but it seems to have disappeared this AM!

Ready to gear up for a busy week at work. Tomorrow is trade have to get ready for it today and tonight.

Need to get to exercise after work with Mom as tomorrow night is trade show so won't have as many days to squeeze it the PM. It is good for mom to go too!

Not sure why I'm always so tired and worn out....Have to work on that.

Off to a great week!

    Glad to hear you had a good time. As far as the trade show goes just take one step at a time and you will get through it. As they say (who are they????) this too shall pass. Yes if you are unusually tired maybe you should be discussing this with your doctor. emoticon emoticon emoticonLynne

It has been good to get away and reflect and be quiet. Decided to make it a quiet weekend to reflect and TV etc. Wondered how I'd handle that but seems to really relax me...Interesting.

Went to mall in St. Louis and spent a couple of hours shopping. Not a big shopper but rarely have time to just wonder around and shop. Found a couple of pants that were actually long enough for me. Usually have to mail order them. Styles must be longer now. Not on a time schedule and that was nice. The weekend away has been so good so far. Just time for rest and reflection.

Went to the homecoming football game and then to a bond fire at a classmates home in the middle of no-where. It was very nice and relaxing. Just old friends reacqainting. Very few of our 300 gather..only 15 last night but more tonight at a dinner...around 40...signed up but it is nice to see everyone again. We are over who is what or who's done what...and just nice to see what everyone's been up to and where they are now. Lots of us are dealing with aging parents....and saying goodbye to our homesteads etc.

Interesting how some of the nice people in high school are still very nice people and we all look about the same...except aging and a few pounds added.

Glad I got has been good for me.
