It has been good to get away and reflect and be quiet. Decided to make it a quiet weekend to reflect and recharge...no 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 away...it has been good for me.

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 etc...so 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 sleep...so things to ponder over the weekend. Need to get back traking food again. I'm pretty consistent with exercising...it'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 that...so 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.

  


Tuesday Morning

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

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 night...so 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
