5 days until our Adventure with BFF's

Monday, February 06, 2012

Do I think I can last until Friday? Yes I know I can. Looking forward to our time away with BFF's Been awhile since we've seen them. I know I only talk to her about every day!

They drive out (about 9 hours) stay the night and then the next afternoon we fly to Florida and our daughter and her boyfriend pick us up at the Tampa airport. We are staying with daughter as she has a gorgeous condo place with two spare bedrooms. We will adventure around Sarasota and do whatever we want and show them around. Then Friday morning we'll leave and take the Key West Express boat to Key West for three days. I am so excited to show them and hubby Key West. It is fun and different. Just a neat break from life. The sunset celebration is gorgeous on Mallory Square. BFF's have been to Disney but never explored they are looking forward to it also...and seeing the side of life from people who live in the area. Plus they get our past adventures experience to pick from what they want to do. Hope to get in some beach walking with my BFF. She loves to walk and is an inspiration to me. She's always stayed thin and exercised and she loves to eat also. Just going to be fun getting away, laughing a lot and relaxing. Plus always good to be with my daughter.

Starting to sleep better. Took nap yesterday afternoon, slept on the couch during SuperBowl and still slept through the night. I seem to go through cycles. Wake up with power surges (hormones) for 3 weeks or so and then have 3 week break where I can sleep uninterupted. For some reason I don't feel tired out in the afternoons during the week though.

Off to make it a great week!

Busy day! When aren't they? Gotta get my workout in. Gotta declutter house. BFF's are coming in next Friday to begin our adventure! Trying not to get excited. Gotta start laying out the clothes to take on our trip.

Can't wait to hug my girl and spend time with her....again...and we were just there at Christmas. I miss her more and more as we grow close. We just need to live closer.

Need to take Mom out shopping. We are thinking maybe tomorrow after church we might go out. I dread it but know we need to do it. Thinks she is always out of clothes and then she gives away all we buy because they dont' fit. So aggrevating. Hubby takes her grocery shopping and Walmart Shopping etc so we do get her out. You just can't look at anything for yourself because she has to be the focus of it all. Seems I've changed with working...if I have some free time I get frustrated with her quickly and my patience is thin. Yet I know she enjoys just getting out and I shouldn't be so selfish. At times we will go and she will enjoy herself and I will feel good about our time together. Always try to remember we don't know how much time we have with her and to enjoy these precious times together.

Not meaning to get down to make it a great day!

    I understand, every time I am with my mom and talk to her on the phone I remind myself this time is all about her. It helps!

Doing some evaluation

Friday, February 03, 2012

Went to Praise Team Practise last night. Have a new Music Minister and wondering if I need to move into another area. Think they are wanting skills beyond mine and I really don't have the time to practise or the talents they seem to need. I'm a humble hymn player. Feeling discouraged and overwhelmed and wonder if it's time to step aside.

Seems like I'm feeling that way about a lot of things in my life. Maybe I need to step into new areas.

Will try to start packing for our adventure next weekend! Want to get the house cleaned up before our BFF's get here. Hubby's been getting his piles under control so it won't be too bad. Also need to try on clothes to see what I want to take with us.

Had a long night at work last night. Had to stay about an hour over as co-worker had to go home with a migraine and other part timer went home at 4. Of course computer was so slow...oh well I made it through it.

    I get frustrated because the people that lead worship these days do not incorporate any of the hymns or choruses that most people know to get them involved. It's like they dont know them and are not interested in learning them. I appreciate the newer music and love to sing but sometimes the older music says it best. And that's their job to lead people into worship the Lord of Heaven and earth. Not trying to be negative, I just appreciate an hymn player.

Gorgeous Weather

Thursday, February 02, 2012

Yesterday got to 60 out. Ate lunch at the park but didn't have walking shoes on...drats...miss the lunchtime walks. 8 days until our BFF's come for our adventure. Can hardly wait!

We are going to have so much fun...just fun being with our BFF's.

Seem to have an internal clock that wakes me at 2:30 and 4:30 right now. Don't know what that is all about. Fortunately I've been able to go back to sleep at 2:30. At 4:30 just figure I've got a jumpstart to my day as I usually get up at 5. Gives me a little more time on Sparkpeople!

Attending a Chamber Luncheon for Women. Was undecided on whether or not to go as not really my job anymore...but thought I need to keep my finger in the door with networking and it's my lunchtime. Who knows what door it might open for me.

Took a drive with hubby last night in our baby. Been awhile...but weather was nice and thought it would be good. It was good but not the same as when the top is down and the wind is blowing through my hair.

Off to make it a great day and see where God takes me!
