STILL TRYING TO...

..."Get Organized", "Get Back On Track", "Change Myself for the Better"? Take your choice,
Good day, my dear friends!!
Contrary to popular belief, I have NOT become a hermit, nor have I fallen off the edge of the earth, although sometimes it may feel that way.
I have still been struggling with getting my life back under control and so I have not been "Huddling", nor writing "Blogs", nor posting on any of my team's threads. I know, that is NOT the way to go about saving my life. One of my friends did write that she too is having difficulty. I would have sworn that she was tapped into my brain because there was such a parallel of our lives.
I'm trying to get organized & THAT in itself is a VERY difficult feat for yours truly. I'm trying to stay focused, which is an even MORE difficult chore. I'm trying to write lists and USE them. I'm not use to doing that and I seem to take an unbelievable amount of time just writing the stu.. (nope, I WILL NOT say STUPID) list. It must be frustrating to people who are organized & focused to try to understand why some of these things are so difficult for me. Heck, it's difficult for ME to understand, but here I am STILL trying to get all these things in order. Enough said on that subject now to try to fill you in on at least some of the important things in my life recently.
Yule - Christmas - was a WONDERFUL day in the life of Ruby Claire. The first thing was to go to my son's home & enjoy the breakfast Charlie made & Harrison, Trinity & Cameron opening their gifts. From there, I ventured over to my daughter's to enjoy the company of Amy-Jean, John, Johnny & Kurt. All in all, I also got some wonderful gifts.
I worked on New Year's Day, so took off Friday as my holiday. I went to the hairdressers and then met my kids for lunch. We went to a nice little local place named "Wholesome Cafe", which serves all healthy & organic foods. It was quite a nice day.
Saturday evening I was invited to one of my cousin's homes for drinks & a lovely visit. We (my other cousins & I) arrived at 5:30 p.m. & we didn't leave until 11:30 p.m. Wow, I haven't been out late like that in a LONG time.
Saturday I had to go to a funeral. Remember my cousin Ron who just passed on Halloween eve? Well, we buried his sweet Mother-in-law yesterday. She was Greek so we had a Greek service which was quite lovely. I have a couple of people in my family who married Greeks so I'm not unfamiliar with their services. One of the nieces was standing behind me on entrance to the church & she couldn't hear the priest so she asked me what he was saying. I said to her, "I don't know. It's Greek to me!" She got hoot out of that comment. After the funeral we went to the Greek restaurant for the mercy meal. DELISH! I LOVE this particular Greek restaurant.
Last evening I was suppose to go out with a few friends, but canceled out because I didn't get home from the funeral & meal et cetera until 4:00p.m. or so and I was wiped out.
This morning I DID do my exercises with Coach Nicole's 28 Day Boot Camp DVD, and then straightened a couple of things, got my dishes done and my pea soup made, but otherwise I haven't really done what I had originally planned to do. I did, however, FINALLY write ANOTHER list of things I REALLY need to get done. As I stated earlier in this blog, I'm not a "list" person, but I AM trying desperately to get into the habit of writing a list in the hopes it will help me accomplish things I tend to keep putting off.
Well, that's my latest update. I AM now going to work at getting some of the things on my list accomplished so I will be able to cross them out. I understand that's a great "high".
Wish me luck.
Hugs to all of you for taking the time to read & comment on my blogs.
