Wonderful Evening

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Took Mom and co-worker to early Christmas Preview at our favorite little shop. We just had a delightful time and had dinner. We laughed and laughed. Like Mom and I used to and co-worker fit right in. She brightened us up. Usually get so focused on work and everything to do realized how much I missed laughter.

Found some cute Christmas necklaces for daughter as she's a teacher and the kids love cutsie necklaces. She wanted something for her assistant and I think I found several cute things for her to pick from.

Hubby wants to hit outlet malls today. Can you believe I have a hubby who likes to shop and I'm the one who drags my feet!

Woke up with killer headache/neckache this am. Gotta get a new pillow. Plus I know working on computer tightens up those neck muscles.

Gained a pound this week. Didn't get as much workouts as schedule didn't allow and had several Thanksgiving dinner and ate out twice. It makes a difference!

Son and daughter-in-law are coming up for Winter Gathering (all our little shops open for Christmas season) tomorrow. It will be good to see them and spend some time with them.

Off to make it a great day!

Up early

Friday, November 11, 2011

Woke up and couldn't sleep. Stewing about work. Probably be so relieved when I walk out the door. The handwriting is on the wall...I know it in my gut and yet I feel like I'm giving up, can't handle it...if I just tried harder, if I just hang in there long enough. Look around and wonder what I'd like to do...what I'm passionate about...where I can excel and soar with the eagles. Wonder why I'm there...maybe I need to just do my job and go home. If so why do I wake up and ponder things?

Looks like hubby's project is coming to an end. I don't like walking away from a paying job. Yet money doesn't seem to be a reason to motivate me to stay. Still my goal is the first of the year. We'll see what happens between now and then.

Taking Mom to Christmas Open house at our favorite shop tonight after work. Having a girls evening out.

Fabulous Wednesday

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Had to take co-worker home yesterday at lunchtime. Guess she got a migraine. Kinda scared me a little. Her face went numb and her hands and her vision got distorted. Her migraine medication started working slowly. So stayed with her until daughter got there.

It was a gorgeous fall day yesterday and was so looking forward to walking at lunchtime but ended up taking co-worker home and boss wanted me back at the office as he couldn't be ate my packed lunch at my desk...swamped with work,

Had hair appointment after no exercise after work. Felt frustrated I didn't get more exercise time in yesterday.

Today supposed to be won't get in walking at lunchtime...but will take Mom to Curves after work. Getting used to fitting in extra workouts and when I don't I feel frustrated. Yet I know we will have days like that. Trying to figure out what to do in winter during lunchtime for exercise. Guess I could walk around stores at lunch time...not quite the exercise but guess it would be better than nothing....have to ponder on that one.

Off to make it a great day!

  Perhaps on not so cold days you could walk outside your office, if that is possible.

Crossed 60,000 points today! Woo Hoo

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

Can't believe I have made it this far. One step at a time and slowly but it is working.

Co-worker was sick yesterday and boss had gentleman in to install equipement for our office to go paperless. All our files will get scanned and then from any office we can see the files. Lots of changes always going on. Maybe I just need to be patient and things will change for me. I struggle knowing if it's time to move on or time to do my very best and wait.

Got to walk at lunch but worked over an hour trying to finish up things and didn't make it to Curves last night.

Went to bed around 8:30. I was tired. Guess still trying to adjust to time change.

Off to make it a great day. Probably won't get to walk as it's raining today..unless it stops!
