Not sure exactly what was going on but really blew it yesterday with eating. Still have Christmas goodies around and couldn't stop eating them. Thought about getting out of the house and walking around but decided to stay home and work on bow and arrow bag for co-worker. Have it about done but working on the zipper. Need to think about it so put it down at 6 pm for awhile. Zipper and then adjustable shoulder strap and I'll be done. Not sure how co-worker talked me into this...guess it's cause she bought everything and brought it to me. It's not that I can't do it...I can do about anything I set my mind to...just be a long while since I've done any sewing. It has been challenging to me...maybe that's what made me eat as I was stressed. I want it to be nice for her. She has definitely challenged me with this project. There isn't too much she can do. We've measured and set things in place to know where they need to go...rest is up to me. Maybe that is why I ate everything I don't normally do or in the excess that I did. Hubby was gone for the afternoon so left me time to eat and work on the project.
Plus had mother in law over for dinner Friday night. Had a pork roast, mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. Seemed like she was on a roll. First she thought we had dime on the floor and it was a dirt spot. Then she was pulling a spot out of her tea. She and hubby only drink instand tea and I stirred but guess it wasn't enough and she found a tiny piece floating and had to show it around. Then the tea was too sweet. Kept saying she'd eaten too much lunch and really wasn't hungry for supper and on and on. She is a pistol at times.
One thing good is that I organized two drawers and a cupboard over the weekend. Trying to get things in order for the wedding one drawer or cabinet at a time. They look nice. Just don't seem to have time to do things like that normall. Like to do it when hubby is gone because he likes to save everything. He is planning a trip with some guys in March to go to watch racing. Talked to my BFF and she may come up and help me work on projects during that time....
Oh a good note from work...boss came by Friday and asked me if I want to do BNI (business networking) all the time for him as he moves back to running the business. I wanted to jump and down inside. Co-worker kept hovering at the doorway. My boss NEVER comes in and sits and chats with me. I really like going to networking. It's at 7:30 am every Wednesday. I have been rotating every other week for him...and never got authority or training to really participate for him...yet he'd have me read things for him. Now I'll get to do the training...1 on 1's with other members...for coffee or lunch. You get to know the other members and work to pass on leads or business for each other. Boss things it is beneficial and we've seen business from it. It really works. Then I'll get to bank the time for an extra day off each month. I'd rather that than take off 1/12 hours early...that never works. Hard to get away. Rather bank it for days off! Thinking I have to be careful with co-worker. We are good friends but she likes to be center stage. She of course wouldn't want to be at meetings at 7:30 am...but doesn't like me getting attention. So will have to see how it plays out. Going out for 1 on 1 meetings will have to be handled carefully. It will cause me to have to work smarter. May even be an answer to prayer...get me out with others and maybe work on some marketing things between mortgagee people, bank people etc. Make me brain storm. Been praying that God does something with my work...it's been burning me out. Maybe I can use this and bring some excitement and enjoyement to my work.
Leaving for Florida Friday morning...really looking forward to it.
Off to make it a super day!
