Friday

Made it to Friday! Took Mom to exercise and worked on cleaning up the house for company. Got a lot done but still want to get some things done...thought I'd skip exercise and work on cleaning some more....but then rethought it and thought I'll get exercise in and spend less time on Sparkpeople today...that way I could still get it in.

Still got a ways to prepare for company coming Friday, Starting to decorate for the holidays...very minimal at this stage...thought I might be getting some new carpet and didn't want to decorage and undecorate...but not happening until after the first of the year...so gotta get on it.

Still struggling with a stiff neck each day. There is so much going on...a crazy time for company to visit...but it's my best friend and her hubby...guess they'll have to take us as we are! They won't mind...I will mind if everything isn't just so so...but I'm learning if you work long hours...it's hard to get everythng done. Hubby has packratitis (he's a pack rat) so have to motivate him to get his stuff picked up because he can't have anyone move his "piles"

Been thinking about goals for 2011...accomplished a lot of 2010's. One is to keep decluttering and get kids bedrooms usable. I've got their stuff and my stuff stored in one of them...and I need to go through them and get rid of things.

Well we've hit mid week. Went to exercise with mom last night and came home and cleaned up kitchen some and then collapsed. Was so tired. Fell asleep in the recliner...I know stay out of the recliner. But have to get myself in gear and get house straightened up for company this weekend! I just seem to come home worn out from work.

Found out yesterday we won't get carpet in until January...but maybe that's for the best...after the holiday and company gone home...then we can deal with all the turmoil of moving things out of the rooms to carpet.

Off to training this AM from 9-11.

Woke up with stiff neck and killer headache. Spending a lot of time on the computer at work and body is paying for it.

    It may be blessing your carpet will be delivered after the holidays. you will be able to enjoy without worry about spills likely you occur with company.
You should try stretching before going to bed this may alleviate tried muscles cramping.
Have a good Wednesday.

Got through the Expo. Met some interesting people. Attended a church service at the expo center...you never know what you will find! Took it down and was home by 2:30 and then spent the rest of the evening grocery shopping with hubby and his mom. UGH! Tell me why I went. I did okay but was hard to be patient. Was tired and that probably wasn't the best time for me to go but hubby wanted me to go! How they can grocery shop from 3:30 until 7:00 is beyond me. Every time I tell myself...I will not go with them again and then they catch me on a weak moment and I go with them again. Hubby is patient with his mom. He is a good son. I used to be but since working...and working yesterday...,my patience gets short. Looking through every can to find one not dented and the right date wears me out. He has come a long way from the time we were caring for my mom. Then he had no patience. I try hard not to let my impatience show...I just walk off and look at things...which probably tells them I'm impatient.

Off to a good week. Boss said to take time off....and I want to save it for when my daughter is home. Yipee! Can't wait to see her and spend time with her. Got a scheduled phone networking with another agency who successfully markets and taking Mom to Dr tomorrow AM and training on Wednesday. So diversified week.

Got company coming this weekend and have to also get the house cleaned up. Seems like never enough hours to the day.

    How exciting waiting for your daughter to come home! It's hard when they grow up sometimes:)

    Good morning. Sounds like your week is going to be a busy one for sure. Remember you can use that house cleaning (heavy cleaning) as exercise. emoticon

Sometimes it is hard to find patience when we are tired ourselves. But then I think to myself, I'm sure that someday I may be like this too and I hope my kids don't get inpatient with me. It all comes with understanding and learning to love everything around us no matter what it is.

Have a blessed week. Donna
