Almost the weekend.

Thursday, April 19, 2012

This week is zooming by...yay...only 5 more working days and then it's holiday time.

I have some revisions to do on my Hayes Job Reclassification once again. I will attempt to work on that today, but I have until May 17th to have it complete. The changes that I have to make are not major ones so shouldn't take that long.

Yesterday I had a nice bonus. One of my co-workers came to work early and wanted to go for a walk. She has found out that she is diabetic and wants to eliminate some weight. I normally work through my lunch break, but with someone to walk with, taking my break and getting outside is great. We walked for 25 minutes and plan on doing so each morning this week. YAY! Someone else to keep me motivated.
It was nice to come home from work and know that I had almost completed my steps goal for the day.

My positives:
A walking partner, at least for this week and hopefully for the three days that I work next week.
Weather is warming up and snow is almost gone.
Hayes stuff at work is almost complete, just some minor revisions to do.
Holiday time coming up. I'll have time to get my garden stuff ready and time to tackle some organization projects.
Life...what a blessing each day is.

Have a great and wonderful day,

Tired this morning

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

I'm tired this morning. I was in bed by 9pm last night, but so much information running through my head after meeting with the financial planner that I had a difficult time falling asleep. When I did, there was lots of dreaming going on. Most of which really didn't seem to make much sense. I know there is a message in all that somewhere!

I managed to get in a nice walk outdoors yesterday after work. My goal is to make that happen at least 3x a week.

Meeting this morning and lots of work on my desk that needs to be accomplished. Lots to keep me busy today.

My positives:
A informative meeting last night with the financial planner. Garry not sold on giving him a go ahead to work with us, but that is okay as we did get some direction and information. If we are meant to work with him it will happen.
A nice walk outdoors yesterday. A goal set for 3x a week.
Almost finished with the Hayes Job Reclassification at work...hope to be done completely with all revisions etc by the end of this month.
Blessed with a new day of life.
I'm on track with my steps.

Have a great and wonderful day everyone,

April 17th and all is well

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Yesterday turned out to be a lovely day with the sunshine and being able to sit out on the deck for a few minutes after work. Definitely needed your jacket on, but so nice to sit in the sun.

Very busy day at work, lots of receiving of new material to do as well as working on the Hayes stuff. Hope to be finished with that this week. I have a meeting tomorrow morning to go over my final draft and will find out if it is actually my "final" draft *grin*.

My kefir grains still have not arrived, I'm hoping that they arrive today. I'm anxious to get them started.

We have a meeting with a financial planner scheduled for this evening. Hope we can come away from it with some solid direction and information. I'm sure anything we learn will be of benefit. Hopefully some of the information we will be able to pass along to our kids also. The times of being able to depend on old age pensions etc are something that are iffy for my generation and unlikely for my kids. Just another reason why we need to change our way of thinking and get back to basics and becoming more self-sufficient. More incentive to also become the healthiest that we can possibly be through exercise and eating healthy.

My positives:
A beautiful day of sunshine yesterday and more expected this week.
Got to spend a few minutes out on the deck yesterday after work.
Family night in the works for this Friday night....apparently it is "bowling" on the agenda.
Blessed with life, love, family and friends.

Have a great day,

    Sounds like a terrific day! I wish it were cooler here. The humidity has been sky high. Love your idea of family night bowling!

A new work week begins...

Monday, April 16, 2012

Well the dreaded chore of the doing the income taxes is done for another year. Now it's on to the next priority on the list, which is getting my Hayes Job reclassification completed this week. I need to have the final draft done and ready for examination by the higher ups. Once that is done, then I can concentrate on my projects that I have on my to do list for when I am on holidays!

It finally stopped snowing yesterday and the temps are supposed to rise enough to start the melting cycle all over again today. Mucky roads and walking in puddles woo hoo! *grin*

My positives:

We had a nice phone call from friends that we hadn't heard from for several months. It sure was nice to touch base with them again and catch up on all the family news.
Holiday time is fast approaching, two more weeks.
Discovered that our new phones announce who is calling regardless of whether or not we have that caller in our directory. Who knew phones could be so much fun!
We have a meeting with a financial advisor tomorrow evening. It will be nice to pick his brain about aspects of planning for a retirement....whether that is even going to be possible!
Blessed with life, love and the choice to be happy.

Have a great and wonderful day....remember that you are the ruler of your choices.

Income tax is finally done...

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Income taxes are finally done and netfiled...now I just have to wait and see if I made any mistakes! Lots of praying going on and asking my angels for help in understanding and entering things correctly *grin*
You would think that after all these years of doing them, I wouldn't get so stressed out. Obviously, I have some left over issues with failure that I still need to work on.

The ground received more snow yesterday and last night. It's stopped snowing now and hopefully will begin the process all over again of melting and being mucky.

Our cordless phones finally bit the dust yesterday...they were so old and on their last leg for awhile, but we kept putting off replacing them. Yesterday we had to finally get new ones. It took a trip to Costco and me trying to figure out how to set them up. It will be a learning process, I'm sure, for a bit. I do love though that they tell me in this lovely voice...who is calling. I think that the number needs to be in my directory of numbers though first. Very cool and totally unexpected to have my phone talk to me! The other great plus...they take up very little room unlike the old ones, and when you enter a number into the directory on one phone, it saves on all of them. No more having to update each phone. I do need to record a nice new answer message on the phone though in case we aren't home. So much fun.

My positives:

Income taxes are done for another year and netfiled.
New cordless phones that talk to me when there is a call coming in. Talk about not having to get up and answer the phone unless I want to talk to that person *grin*
Did I mention that income taxes are done *grin*
It has stopped snowing.
Managed to get my steps all in yesterday...a great stress reliever to just get up and do some walking.
Blessed with guidance and assistance from above.

Have a great and wonderful day, I will now that income taxes are done *grin*

    I'll take our rain and 70 temp over your snow any day, lol, hopefully your snow will soon come to an end and you'll get the rain instead. Woo hoo, for the taxes being done. Have a wonderful week.

    Sounds like you are having a ball with your new phone, hee hee. Fitbit is easy and you'll be able to get that going without a problem. Now, you keep that darn snow girl as I can't believe you are still getting some at mid-April, grrrrr. Have a great day!
