Mixed feelings!

Monday, September 26, 2011

Daughter flying home tonight after I get off work. We have come full much fun she is to be around and with and she wants to be around us. She is becoming a treasured friend. I grow to dislike the distance (miles) between us. Will have to work on that some day.

Kind of a blah day for co-worker and I. She spent the weekend in hospital will her Mom. She is having major health issues. She is starting on that downward spiral...slow or fast only time will tell. I dislike that she is heading where I've been and am going through. A tough time..emotionally and physically on you.

Gotta get back on track. The fall challenge is starting at a crazy time for me. Hopefully tomorrow we will get back on track and back to "normal".

    It's sad that all family can't live in the same areas. I'm lucky - both kids are nearby and love the grandkids nearby too! I moved away when I got married for a job and always lived apart. I missed out on alot family wise and my kids certainly missed out on their grandparents, on both sides. Never really knew them. Hope you get closer someday.

Awesome Weekend!

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Picked daughter up last night from airport. So good to get my arms around her. Today she was off with her dad in the parade and then went to MUM festival with her BFF and their 3 children.

Watched the parade and then picked up mom and then we went to the festival. She said she didn't want to go to parade. Then we headed over to daughter's BFF to take presents for her daughter and visit with her. Then Mom and I headed back into town for our favorite gift shop. Then we met hubby for dinner and we ended it with a evening drive in the car. What a way to end it.

Will pick daughter up at her BFF then off to slumber land. Have had a lovely day today. Weather is cool but the rain held off and the sun popped out now and then.

Was proud of myself. Festival food is not enticing. One the long lines and two I always regret it after I've eaten it!

Off to finish the weekend!

Ready for the Weekend!

Friday, September 23, 2011

Had a rough night last night. Hubby kept getting up and it woke me up at 3:30 and couldn't go back to sleep. Kept thinking the alarm had gone off and it was time to get up....and he was sawing logs..(snoring) too! Now he'll probably be sleeping like a baby.

Daughter flies home tonight. She gets in around 10:30 if all goes well. She is only here until Monday night but you take what you can get.

MUM festival this weekend. Hubby and daughter driving in the parade Saturday.

Work has been OK. Not loving it but determined to do my very best while God has me there and to adjust my Attitude!

Terrific Fall

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Have enjoyed our company. Today they head home and tomorrow night my daughter flies home. Can't wait to get my arms around her. Guys were out of town yesterday evening so Betty and I went into town after I got home from work to the coffee shop, had a coffee and sat and talked for a couple of hours. It was relaxing and enjoyable. Then we came home and we made a salad for dinner. Just had a nice evening. They are special dear friends.

We were able to meet up with two friends from church for lunch. That was nice for the four of us to catch up.

When I look back - it was just a nice day. Hope they had a nice visit. The boys got to do their thing...trains, cars, computers.

God puts special friends into our lives and they are some of those.

Work has been OK. Co-worker who is off will be back in November. So we have awhile before she will be back. Other co-worker and I will go to visit her next week and take pizza and see the baby. Maybe some of these things will make her a more pleasant person to work with????

Off to make it a great day!

Fabulous Wednesday

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Been busy at night with company. Mom decided she wanted to come over for dinner last night. She said she can't eat lasagna....go figure. So picked her up and she could eat it. Never ceases to amaze me. Afterwards we went for icecream our company's treat. Of course Mom couldn't eat her icecream...but licked the dish clean. Go figure!

Frustrated at work. Dislike all the politics. Boss asks everyone how everyone is doing but the person and asks everyone but me. Then co-worker tells me what he tells her. Which I guess I'm glad I know to be prepared but frustrated with it all. Then I question just exactly what is said or is she just trying to manipulate me. Never had to deal with all these petty things going on. Growing real tired of it all. Yet not sure if I can't deal with it and should just suck it up and deal with it. With company it's hard to think about it yet it is eating at me. Last night I decided I need to turn it over to God. He knows I'm struggling with it. He knows the income is nice right now. He knows the flexibility is good right now. I will trust Him in this journey right now. I also realize I'm tired from the company and Mom right now. Feeling like I need time away...and just came back from vacation a few weeks ago. Although feeling like I want time alone someplace.

Keeping up with morning exercise. Know it helps to relieve stress some and energize me.

Off to make it a great day!

    Try not to let your boss exert his/her power over you. Sounds like this is some sort of manipulation. The job you have in today's economy is golden, especially since the income is good and the flexibility is good. If you've turned it over to Him, trust that He will help you. Your mom sounds like she is looking for attention, or comfort. Good for you keeping up with your morning exercise. This will help you cope with all that is going on in your life at the moment. Keep your chin up!

    emoticon and a suggestion...Try reading Joyce Meyer's latest book, Living Beyond Your Feelings! Strategies for not letting our emotions control us! (Reading it myself and finding it helpful; I have been in similar work situation,) Kudos for hanging in there on your own and good attitude! emoticon emoticon
