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!

Tuesday Ponderings

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Things are going much better at work. Can't believe how different Debbie Downer is at work. She is like a new person. She was telling us even before she was PG she was not feeling well. Maybe that was what was making her so miserable to be around. She now genuinely seems nice and to meet us half way. She has been through a lot with being PG and sickly, have the baby and near death because they couldn't stop her bleeding and ended up with 4 surgeries and hysterectomy and ICU and her dad dying of cancer shortly afterwards etc. It does change your perspective. Still cautious though.

Yesterday had staff meeting. We are undergoing lots of changes. Don't think we'll ever NOT CHANGE. Was wondering if I can see myself still in the organization 1 year, 2 years, 5 years down the road? There was a little glimmer that maybe I might see myself still here. Then wonder if I'm settling for being comfortable instead of finding my nitch. But guess I'll stay put and look around and see if there is something around that matches me better.

11 days and counting until our adventure with our BFF's. I am so looking forward to blowing off some steam and lots of laughter as we adventure together.

Picked out bunch of pictures for son and daughter in law's adoption book. They are putting together a book for a prospective Mom who will lookg through books and pick them as the parents for her baby. Wonder if this year will bring about our first Grandbaby?

Our weather is so different this year. It was 22 when I left for work with skiffs of snow and 49 when I left almost feeling like spring. Our BFF's had 61 where they live and that is unusual for them also. We usually have lots of snow and cold and ice.

Off to see what kind of weather we'll have today

  Glad to hear Debbie Downer is improving in her temperament. You stuck it out and are all the better because you did. Best wishes to you!

Marvelous Monday

Monday, January 30, 2012

Spent a quiet weekend! Got some cleaning done Saturday and Sunday was more of a rest day with some reading and puttering around.

Two weeks until we leave for our adventure...13 days to be exact...

Got to read some motivational readings yesterday about Attitude and how it effects us. Hopefully that will carry me into this week with a better attitude. It is a choice I make....

Struggling to stay asleep at night...power flashes whatever. I go through spells where they don't bother me and then they do...ugh! Again it is an attitude I deal with or get frustrated with. Maybe it's an opportunity to get up and exercise more????

Will get in more time this week. Have put off Curves becauuse Mom hasn't felt like going. She turned her ankle yesterday so I need to get off of it and go by myself. USed the excuse that I exercise in the AM...but haven't gotten back into the routin since Christmas Holidays and just need to DO IT!

Busy week ahead so a quiet weekend was nice. We had rain and snow and sunshine and more snow. Nothing much accumulated. Strange winter.

Baked a big squash and cut it up for meals this week. Took some over to Mom. Hopefully she will eat it as it was so soft she could mush it with a fork. Was thinking i probably need to start sending care packages to her more often to make sure she is getting a variety of foods/vegetables to eat.

Off to make it a great day!
