Thursday Morning

Thursday, July 29, 2010

We've made it to Thursday and we're cruising along. Had nice rain shower yesterday afternoon. The yard and flowers liked it. Had message they didn't have mom's dress in the size we ordered. So eventually called them back after getting stressed about it and they had a similar dress I ordered instead. Should be here in 7-10 business days! Yippee! Now to find her shoes....will it ever end? The girl at work and I have both been tired a lot. Think all the changes in the last year are taking their toll on us and there are more changes to come shortly. She will be moving to another office location and I'll stay to close down our office for another two months or so. I am looking forward to merging and have more in the office and a new role...but the changes must wear us out. We don't feel too bad but we notice our mind is in all directions and we can't remember things and at night we are worn out we are guessing all the change is wearing us out some. We've already gone from 5 in the office to 2 and our previous boss that we enjoyed working for retired. The new guy is nice and different and we're in a learning curve. I think we're heading for exciting times ahead. He has lots of energy and vision to take us further and stretch us. Little scary wondering if I can keep up or am capable of stretching that far....but in my innermost...know that I can and know I need to stretch, grow and challenge myself. Just different stage than I thought. Years ago thought I would be coasting to the finish line and after my children have grown and flown...I have started a career and it's ramping up. My husband has adapted well after having a stay at home wife/mom to career woman and he is supportive. It helps that this stage of his life has been turned upside down getting downsized from Corporate America a few years ago and struggling to find another corporate job at his age and stage of life. So he is supportive in my stable job while his company is small and volatile now. Interesting the turns and twists God has taken me. I am enjoying the journey. It is so important to pay attention to myself and even though I'm busy--to incorporate exercise--to keep my body healthy and in good shape for the rest of the journey. At times it's hard to keep juggling everything but I know it's worth it and good for me,

Well we made it home around 8:30 last night. Made for a short night but the classes weren't too boring and enjoyed getting to know a co-worker better. She works in another location and we will eventually be working out of the same office. She is very nice and my daughters age. Looking forward to working with her. So back to work today. Proud of myself for getting up early yesterday and getting in my work out. Will take mom to exercise tonight after work.

Off to Columbus for a day of CU's to keep up my license. Ordered a dress online for my mother-in-law for the wedding. We sure weren't having any luck in the stores. Hopefully she will like it???? She did in the pictures. Ordered it larger so we can take it in but we don't want it too small. I will be glad for that stress to be over. She is challenging to make happy. This will be one concern down... then it's shoes. We still have until September but time is running out. Had to get up early at 4 so can get my exercise in and be at work by 6:30 so we can carpool it to Columbus. Brain seems to be on overload...hopefully I don't forget something

Got alot accomplished at home before leaving to find "The Dress" for my mother-in-law for my nephew's wedding in September. We shopped from 11 - 6 and found nothing. We do know there are a lot of UGLY dresses out there. I'm thankful I have something I can we would be in trouble if we both were looking for dresses. Have done the MALL and shopping centers...maybe we'll go to the outlet mall or bigger cities like Cincinnati/Columbus to look around. It's a beach wedding and she is always HOT so looking for something cooler and the fall colors are already out...UGH She is wanting a typical mother/grandmother dress but doesn't want those kinds of fabric and it can't have BLACK in it so it limits what we see. We won't give up...we will conquer and find it. A new week. Get exericse in this AM and take mom to Curves after work. Off to Cincinnati for training all day tomorrow so won't be getting an evening work out tomorrow night....

Woke up bright and early today! Maybe can get some things caught up this morning around the house and then off for the day to find Mom a dress for my nephews wedding in September. Praying we find something today. Been hard to find time to take her. Am finally noticing some weight loss in clothing. Some of my clothing seem baggy...Yipee! Working hard at it but it's been slow.....Making good changes in my life and it's starting to pay off!
