Wonder what the day will bring. Thought we were having an OK day and a co-worker left the office for her car crying. Seems the other office gave her a file folder at our birthday celebration luncheon and this co-worker thinks she is the only one who works hard and why did they give it to her. I went out to her in the car to see what was wrong..she didn't say a word when leaving. So she's the only one who works..."Thanks a lot" I'm thinking. I knew there would be adjustments. Why do people think life is all about them? We're supposed to be "a team". If the team needs help...we pull together. Oh well she's young and hormonal. My hubby said that is "NO EXCUSE!" My other co-worker is off for the next 3 days...isn't she lucky! We will get through this too! UGH!

Worked on leaves last night and cleaned up the front and back but not the BACK BACK. Have needed to do it...just never enough time...

Gotta pack tonight for trip Friday after work. Looking forward to visiting my dear friend. Been too long since we've been together. Hubby has terminal cancer. Wonder how my friend is doing inside. She's has a challenging life and is the Proverbs 31 woman. She is a sweetie!

Off for a great day regardless of what comes my way!

    WAY TO GO on keeping a positive attitude even through the "crazies". Raking leaves is great exercise and it will keep me busy today as I am raking them for my 80+ year old neighbors. Can't stand to see them doing all that work but they will still help me.
Blessings and hugs,

Busy day yesterday. Went to old office and moved 40 boxes out of the storage area we need to have shredded. Have it set for Monday or Tuesday. Boss needs to move out the rest of the furniture that goes into storage and then I'll do a final cleaning and we'll be out. Felt some emotions going back. Worked there for 8 kinda ready to be out of there. I want it to be done and get settled into the new place. Doesn't seem like we'll ever get it cleaned out. Still alot of JUNK my boss needs to haul away. How do we accumulate so much stuff and never get rid of it????

Took mom to Curves last night. It was work for both of us. Had to MAKE myself do it. But we got through it. Only made it once last week...and it showed! Hope to get there 3 times this week...maybe it will get us back on track.

Came home worn out. Went for a drive with hubby and perked me back up some. Boy am worn out at night.

Heading to Toledo this weekend to visit a dear friend. Been too long since we've visited...her hubby has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Also am meeting up with a high school classmate who lives there also. We've been talking about meeting up and never got it I am going to see her while I'm there also. Makes three weekends in a row I've been gone...kinda wearing me out...but things I need to get done. House still has left over garage sale piled around some...but when I look at priorities...visiting some dear friends these last couple of more a priority. Winter is coming and I will get to the rest eventually.

Off to a great day! Both offices going to lunch to celebrate a co-worker's birthday!

    You are such a busy lady...hope you find some time each day just to relax. Drive with hubby sounds like fun. Glad you are able to prioritize and visiting your friends while you are able...we never know what tomorrow will bring. The meaningless things will be there when you have time.
Blessings and hugs,

Took co-worker out to celebrate her passing her state license exam. She was so thrilled we had done that for her. Had a wonderful time. She was so excited and bubbly. Glad we did it.

Now to get back on tract. Been traveling and eating out Way too much!

Busy day at work today...what day isn't recently???? Will meet my boss at our old office to start closing down things today. We've moved everything we needed to our current office and the rest will go in storage or get rid of. Will be glad when it is all done!

Will go to exercise with Mom tonight...if she feels ok after her flu shot today.

Monday Morning

Got home around 11:30 last night from Evansville, IN. Had a wonderful time. Road a 2 hour train ride through the countryside. That was fun. Ate way too much but it was good to connect with old friends.

Off to a busy week. Our staff is taking a co-worker out for dinner for passing her state license. What an accomplishment for her. She thought she couldn't do it and she did on her first try. A real hurdle overcome for her. Now she is so excited. I am so proud of her. One co-worker is "too busy" to have dinner with matter what night it is. Think it hurt the co-worker who has worked so hard and has a good attitude...but we will go on in spite of us. Our boss, his wife and kids are also going. It is a major accomplishment we are all celebrating...except one of us. That is so sad to me. We need to celebrate everyone's great accomplishments. She will go to lunch with us Wednesday to celebrate birthdays...because it's on the clock! If my boss paid her tonight...she would go. How sad. Wonder how she'll be in the future as we grow and change and become a team on fire. Will we leave her behind in the dust?

Off we go to another busy week....

  You will have fun at dinner. It's better to celebrate with those who truly want to be there.
