Lazy evenings, summer fun, and sorry's

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

I've been lazy about working out the last two days and it shows. My knee was a little tender so I wanted to take it easy. I normally don't let a little discomfort get to me but there's also the stress factor right now, too. All I wanted to do the last two nights was curl up with a book and and a glass of wine after the kids went to bed. So I did. And it was good. And now, it's time to get back to it!!!

The kids are having a fabulous summer vacation with their friends. Lots of field trips and fun activities. I'm so happy for them but I'm a little jealous, too. I have a lot of work to do, a lot of loose ends to tie up before my last day at work on June 30. Then, I will have two weeks to get the house ready, do some packing and planning for the move.

Rick extended the olive branch yesterday. He emailed lots of "I love you's" and "you're my best friend" so I took it even though I didn't get what I really wanted - a "gee I'm sorry".

    It is good for you to take a break once in a while and relaxing with a good book and some wine is a fabulous way to unwind. The month is coming to an end very quickly. Here is hoping that it is all coming together for you and that the move goes smooth ! Take care !

    It's okay to take a break once in awhile. Just take care of that knee and get better. Glad you got to take some time for yourself.

    Hugs to you,

    Remember what's most important... You're here because you want to take care of you... Sometimes that means you just need a break. Glad you were able to enjoy it!!!

    emoticon on just taking a little time for YOU!!! You deserve it. Hope it was a good book and the wine delicious. I sure hope it helped you relax a bit!!! Glad you knee is better even though it is a bit tender. Just be careful not to overdo it. Glad that the kids are having a super summer vacation with the friends, making lots of memories to carry with them always. I hope you are not normally a stresser with everything you have to do to get ready to move and still working to boot!!! Sounds like a sure case of the crazies to me...or I would be before all was said and done.
    I am praying for you. So glad that God has blessed you with the ability to take charge and get things done. You are a very strong lady!!!
    Way to go on accepting the olive branch. Maybe he intended the emails as his way of saying..."I'm sorry". Love will carry you through many things in life. I don't think he meant to hurt you so badly. (I know that Ken wouldn't have a clue if it had been him.) May God bless you for taking this situation to mean that He wants you to move ahead as your Grandma and Pop Pop would want...know that they are watching over you with tons of love.
    Blessings and hugs, dear friend,

    BTW: I am here anytime you want to chat, vent etc. Just drop me a sparkmail or email (address on my spark page) and I will get right back to you. Keeping you in my prayers for added strength and courage...be strong and take care of you first!!! You deserve it!!!
