Busy week

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Proud of still here and managing to get to bed around 10 pm and up at 5 to keep on track exercising and Sparking.

Our company now leaves Thursday morning and our daughter flies up for a weekend visit on Friday night! Can't wait to squeeze her. It won't be long enough but learning to take whatever time God gives to us.

We were busy at work yesterday. We have our days. Co-worker with new baby is doing well. Wonder how it will be if/when she comes back to work? Appreciating working together with co-worker wthout all the drama and emotions.

Off to make it a great day!

Back on Focus

Monday, September 19, 2011

Have been having a wonderful time with company. Good to have them visiting except we've been eating way too much! Everything tasting so good..but need to refocus today and get back on track. Went to bed at 10. Not sure how long they stayed up. Woke up around 4:30 so must have gotten a good night rest.

Went to brunch after church with the girls. Guys went to a train show. We had my friend Betty, Mom and another lady. We had a nice time. Then we went to visit friend who'd just had a double mastectomy. Can't believe you get out of the hospital so quickly and that she was doing so well. This lady has been battling Leukemia for over 20 years and she is still going strong. She is an awesome lady. They told her she wouldn't have children and she has 3 wonderful kids. She is the major breadwinner of the family and she keeps on going. She has a positive attitude. You go there to cheer her up and she cheers you up.

Realized how lacking I am visiting those who are ill.

Mom was feeling good. She spent the day with us. Couldn't believe it. She enjoys Betty. She is funny and nice to be with. Took her home around 5. Worked on putting together a puzzle. Thought she'd want to go home after brunch and then after visiting our friend and then she wanted to hang out with us all afternoon. Hopefully we wore her out and she'll have a good night's sleep.

Have staff teleconference first thing this AM.

Company enjoying themselves and they decided to stay another day until Thursday. While I'm working they are visiting and hanging out with other friends in the area. Glad they feel comfortable at our B&B emoticon Kinda miss having company. We used to have company more often and I enjoy entertaining. With working full time-it's hard to fit it in.

Off to make it a great day!


Fabulous Friday

Friday, September 16, 2011

Think I'm about ready for our company tonight.

Went to Curves by myself last night. Mom didn't want to go. The workout felt good. Really feel stronger in my upper body. Think Curves helps with that. Always glad I push myself. Often just hard at the end of the day.

Work really going better with just the two of us. We may have long days and challenging days but not worrying about someone stabbing you in the back or leave feeling frustrated with injustices.

Still not loving my job. Thinking there has to be something more to life than this. Feeling like I have more to give and more to do than what I am doing.

Looking forward to time with dear friends this weekend.

Off to make it a great day!

Thankful Thursday

Thursday, September 15, 2011

Took Mom out shopping last night. Got what she needed and 3 new pairs of slacks. Also took her to Hallmark store for Halloween cards for great grandkids. She has to use her coupons yet by using her coupons...then she'll get more

Got some housework done after coming home.

Did OK with choices eating out with office staff yesterday. Chose side salad instead of chips or fries.

Found out son and daughter in law NOT coming for one less bedroom to get ready.

Work has been OK. Less stress without Debbie Downer Co-worker.

Off to make it a great day!

Disgusted with myself

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Packed my lunch but boss bought pizza for the office. It tasted so good I ate three pieces and vendor brought pastries and I had already indulged in them, I also missed getting away for an hour from the office.

Just a bummer of a day kept making mistakes. I don't like making mistakes and when I get in one of those spells...all I do is make mistakes it seems.

Came home and went to bed at 8:30. Felt disgusted with myself and then didn't get any cleaning done for company. Oh well probably needed the sleep. Slept through most of the night until alarm went off.

Tonight picking mom up after work to get her some cologne that is on sale and looking for baby gifts.

I will make it a better day today!

    I don't think of it as "bad" foods; I do have to agree that it was a choice that you made. Today is a new day, one that gives you another chance to choose what you believe is right for you.

You can do this; it's one step at a time.

    This caught my eye:

"...kept making mistakes. I don't like making mistakes and when I get in one of those spells...all I do is make mistakes it seems."

They weren't mistakes. They were choices. Or "happy accidents" if you like Bob Ross. Maybe they weren't the best choices of those available, but based on what criteria? I know, I know, I'm being difficult, based on health criteria, of course, but based on another criteria, they could have been the right choices.

The point being, they were choices, and once you own that, then you can make new choices. For some reason, your making mistakes makes me sad. Your making choices makes me think you are one empowered person!

And, if it makes you feel any better, I'd absolutely have made the same question. There's only one thing better than pizza, and that's free pizza. =)
