The weekend is over

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Had a lovely ride through countryside last night and ate at winery in Morrow. Lovely evening with car group. A neat adventure.

Hubby was out of town today and took Mom to church. She said she couldn't go to church due to her new dentures..then changed her mind after church as long as I took her immediately home to brush her teeth. At times so tired of playing her games and dealing with her quirkiness. Then I try to remember what a priviledge to care for our aging parent. We never know how long we can have her around.

Got old frig outside for pick up tomorrow. Hubby actuatlly parted with two boxes for the trash.

Didn't get any housecleaning down for company coming today. Was beat after taking Mom shopping after breakfast. Being around her wears me out.

My password to work computer is Attitude. Reminds me to check my attitude daily. Tending to be of a critical nature and I truly have so much to be thankful for.

    One day our parents are gone but our memories aren't. I will remember how good you are to your Mom.

    Yes, it's a blessing that your mother is still around. I lost my mom 4 years ago and we did a lot together. I miss her so. You do have something to be Thankful for. Remember that our parents put up with our silliness and we have to do the same for them. LOL

You can do it.

Keep up the good work. emoticon emoticon

Day Off

Saturday, September 10, 2011

Can't get myself moving today and I need to. Have company coming next weekend. Was out last night with hubby at car show. Off to dinner at 4:45 with a group tonight. All achy and sore. Got some housework done but can't seem to focus for long.

Hubby has alot of things to sort through before I can clean in his areas...that probably frustrates me also.

Feel like so much to do and not enough time to do it in. I know it will get done.

Plus hubby is gone tomorrow and I will be taking Mom to Church and breakfast. Know I should spend time with her shopping or take her to do something and an dragging my feet. Been awhile since I have done so and feeling guilty but really need to work on house....struggling with that also.

Best get back to work.

Fabulous Friday

Friday, September 09, 2011

Had lunch with business friend. Who knows what the networking might bring. Co-worker works until 1 today and then she's off. We have been busy this week. Other co-worker is now out of ICU and hopes to get home in a few days. Her baby already went home.

Mom got her teeth yesterday. The Dr is wonderful. He is so patient with her. Hubby taking her back for another adjustment this AM. He also took her to grocery yesterday.

Got some errands to run this AM for work so I'm back and in full gear before co-worker leaves.

Hubby has us booked up this weekend. Got company coming next weekend so gotta get to working on the cleaning up the house.

Off to make it a great day!

Up hour early to get in exercise and SparkPeople so we can take Mom to Dentist to get her dentures today.

Had mini melt down at work yesterday. Probably tired from the trip and all the changes. It was short but had lousy day. We were slammed with people, phone calls etc. Like co-worker said it was probably because I was coming off vacation. Old boss wrote me too to ask how it was going.

Discussing taking Mom to Florida for Christmas with our daughter. She would probably like that. Won't tell her until we decide for sure.

Off to make it a better day today.

    WAY TO GO on getting your exercise in early. Hope things went well with your mom at the dentist. Going to Florida for Christmas sounds like a great time for the whole family. Hope you had a good day.

Back to Work

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Really enjoyed the time off. Hard to want to get back to life. Enjoyed being out in the gorgeous weather, walking, hiking in the beautiful outdoors.

Don't know what boss is expecting from me. He moved me to co-worker's office. Seems like the change is upsetting to me...he just moved my computer....what about my files etc. Can I move them too...not ready to come back and face it all...yet I want to be a team player. The other side of me is...I have a nice job...I have a job right now...just deal with it and move on. Not sure why change is getting harder for me. Not always liking what I do. Have felt like I need to move on yet jobs are hard to find and I'd be leaving them in a hard place right now with co-worker off for awhile....

Change is may be for the best. Life is full of change. Is it fear of the unknown?

Off to make it a great day. Who knows what God has in store for me up ahead....

    Fear of the unknown sometimes holds us back in a place where we are unhappy. Sure can't figure out why all your stuff wouldn't be moved. Ask your boss and see what his ideas are.

    It would help, I am sure, if your boss would just share his thinking with you. I hope you had the great day you were planning to have!

    I would just ask him. It seems crazy to not move your files too!

I hope you have a wonderful day!
