Fabulous Friday

Friday, July 08, 2011

End of the work week! Hubby and daughter at space shuttle launch in Florida this AM waiting to see if it goes off. 30% chance today. Hubby loves that kind of stuff. Praying it goes off while they can be there. It will be neat for them both.

Been a hectic schedule this week but so far doing well. Every night meeting up with a friend for dinner...tonight taking mom out grocery shopping and dinner. She even went with neighbor twice to Curves. Good for her to get out with others. Worried about her some as yesterday was dad's birthday...but didn't mention it to her and she never said anything, hubby, daughter, son all talked to her and she didn't say anything. Usually she says something. Hopefully she was busy enough she didn't dwell on it all day. Said she'd had a good day and she was tired. Usually try to do something with her in the evening to keep her busy but was already booked.

Setting aside Saturday for myself...get some things done around the house, sleep until I wake up...and relaxing some.

Off to make it a great day!

    Such news and all good! Watched a launch at Cape Canaveral once and it was so good to see.

Thankfully Thursday

Thursday, July 07, 2011

Been busy every night - out to dinner...UGH! Trying to catch up with friends I rarely see...and they all fell this week. Had nice evening with former co-worker. She's been down as she's been out of work for quite awhile. Good to catch up with her. Think she really needed a nice evening out. Tonight going out with former neighbor...she's also looking forward to nice evening out, Now need to take Mom out Friday night I guess. Today was dad's birthday and know it will be a tough day for her and I'm at a Women's Leadership luncheon and gone tonight again. Hoping kids will call or do something for her and make it go a little easier. We'll plan for Friday night and that will give her something to look forward to. Doing things for others that need some cheering up is something I enjoy doing but rarely get to do. Don't make time for it or have the time to do it. Makes me feel good to do something nice for others. With hubby gone gives me the opportunity to do it. Not good for calorie intake though. Off to make it a good day!

    Sounds like you are having an AWESOME week!! Just remember to take care of yourself as you are taking care of others!! I know I have a bad habit of putting others before myself. Don't let that happen to you.

Wednesday Morning

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

Went with happy co-worker on an adventure last night after work. Hopped in the car and headed to Cincinnati to IKEA. Have talked about it for months and we just needed to do it. Had a nice time but didn't get home until around 11 pm and made for a late night. Not too bad but have another outting tonight with a former co-worker and Thursday night with a former neighbor. Trying to pack in everything I put off and it's booking me up.

Got the word Son and Daughter In Law starting the adoption process. Getting physicals, home check etc. Exciting time for them. Wonder where their journey will take them?

Disgusted with myself...seems I focus on food and seem to be gaining weight instead of loosing it. Frustrating. I'm sure stress assists it.

Time flying by and hubby will be home in a week. Hopefully after Thursday night I won't book myself up any more.

    If you are eating out, I am sure you are getting more sodium than normal which definitely causes water weight gain. Keep drinking your water to flush it out.
HUGS!

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

I am so blessed! Had a wonderful July 4th. Got yard mowed, worked on organizing filing cabinet and got some much needed work and filing done. Traveled to Cincinnati for a wonderful July 4 celebration with family. Mom really enjoyed herself...always does. Daughter in law's family makes her feel part of the clan. Everyone calls her Grandma. She likes that. Lots of kids running around, too much good food, lots of laughter and fun. Spent a lot of time with her this weekend and she really perks up. Just can't spend that much time with her all the time. Off to seize the day. Really felt rested and relaxed yesterday. Took about 2 1/2 days to get that way.

Praising the Lord Sunday

Sunday, July 03, 2011

Off to church soon with Mom. Friends called as they were passing through and caught up with them at Sky Line Chil. Their 4 kids are growing up. Nice they called to meet up. They are special friends. Went to Farm Market and ended up taking Mom to grocery and Walmart.

After church off to Cincinnati to meet up with son, daughter in law and her grandma for brunch at Grand Finale in Cincinnati. Supposed to be a neat place to go. Been wanting to try it for awhile. Glad it worked out for us today.

Enjoying the time alone. Time to reflect and ponder things. Don't know if I have any answers...but enjoying the down time.

In our back yard was a doe and her fawn. It was a little thing. So precious. Haven't been seeing any deer recently in the back...so was a beautiful surprise. Thank you Lord. He knows how to make my day.

    Sounds like a busy but fun day. Glad you were able to enjoy getting together with your family and friends and still had some down time. I have seen two baby fawns this weekend...very unusual. They were beautiful!!!
