Happy Monday -- officially 2 weeks until R day !!!! Anxiousness through the roof !!!!!

Monday, June 18, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Yesterday ended up to be a lazy day .. I was surprised when my fitbit wannabe told me I had 4000 and change steps .. I was expecting maybe 2000 for the day when I took it off .. Even though it was still higher than I expected .. my "low" goal is 5000 .. but that's okay .. I didn't really sit on my backside all day .. I did do the next steps for my thank you cards .. and left them dry for the afternoon .. and I got 3 loads of laundry done .. so I didn't NOT move .. lol .. just not a formal "walk" ..

I had "good intentions" of getting on my gazelle downstairs when I got home from mom's but i didn't get home until around 6, and by the time we finished dinner .. well -- I didn't get on the gazelle .. It was a quiet day, and I'm not making excuses, because excuses can't turn back the clock ..

I got the main 8 of my cards ready to be put together now .. I had to glue the 3D butterfly on the fronts .. and then I came downstairs and set up the insides .. writing my personal thank you's .. only to find that I wrote them on the "wrong side of the card" .. Never fear .. I can still use them .. but I figured this morning, I'll put a "generic" saying on the correct side, so it looks like I "just added" the personal thank you's .. (inside the front cover instead of inside the back cover like it's supposed to be .. lol) But I have 7 that I WANT to get out ... Linda, Jeff, Ken, and my 4 friends that gave me my little party at dinner ... The 8th will go via snail mail to the office after I leave ..

I want to write personal notes to everyone as well, and leave them on their desks on the 29th .. I figure this week I will have the last of my "project" set up to work on .. and then next week is just going to be dancing in circles . I will have time next week to do the last of my notes ...

It was kinda nice yesterday .. hubby went off on his errands, and so I had the whole morning to myself .. and I could just do without the interuptions of "did you want to do anything?" .. Yes .. I want to play .. lol .. Love him, and I know he means well .. but sometimes it's like dealing with a 5 year old .. Mommy this Mommy that .. lol lol .. So he was off on his way, and I got to be just to myself and play and get stuff done I want to get done .. :)

I went over by mom's, and had a wonderful time .. but again .. it was quiet time .. not much moving around ..

We finished the puzzle from last week, and made a game of it .. when I left last week; we had finished the birds .. and she putzed on it throughout the week .. well -- yesterday there were 60 pieces left of just the mottled greens and blues .. and some "easier pieces" .. We each picked 30 pieces, and worked on putting them in .. whoever won could put the "bonus easy " pieces in to finish the puzzle ..

It was a pretty puzzle ..and then we made a decision to start a new puzzle that looked "easy" .. Oh my goodness were we wrong .. lol ... so we have a puzzle for next week .. lol .. (unless she finishes it throughout the week .. lol)

I didn't get home until around 6 .. procrastinating leaving mom's .. and then stopping for gas .. and hubby was setting up for dinner.. and I lazed for the evening until bed .. BAD SALLY ...

So -- that brings us to today ..

Today I'll be spending most of the day with Leonard ... it's changing over the administrative rights of the cell phones .. my last passing of the torch (that I can think of) .. and I'm a bit nervous .. He's been acting very standoffish with me .. our conversations have been "casual" .. I know that he's nervous about me leaving .. that much he's told me many many times .. but he's been "strange" .. I can't put my finger on it .. but maybe today I'll find out .. emotional day .. maybe .. ?? but I need to focus on handling the situation as it comes up .. IF it comes up ...

At the same time Kim is soloing this week .. It's going to be VERY difficult for me to keep my hands in my pockets .. That will be MY challenge for this week .. to see her possibly flustered, and not get my hands into it .. but to just be there for over the shoulder support ..

So -- this will be a challenging week to say the least .. but I'm going to do my best in maintaining my composure .. Jimmy said in his speech "I was the rock that held it together while everyone else was stressing" .. I'm going to have to be my own rock just to keep myself from stressing .. and nobody can be the wiser.. it's like the captain of the ship stressing because there's something wrong .. and the crew picks up on that .. I need to go in with a smile, and hold onto that smile throughout the day .. It's going to be difficult, but I know I can do it .. (with a good solid sweating exercise at night) .. lol

Okay --Have to get myself going .. Officially 2 weeks left .. 2 weeks .. 14 days .. I was telling mom that this is strange .. I have spent the last 40 years with projected projects .. Now I'm finding my projected projects as crafts, walks. ... a new chapter in my life .. that I thought I would NEVER SEE ...

I wish everyone a great day .. I know I need a solid protien breakfast ... because I have a funny feeling that munching could be in my future today .. if I KNOW it's not hunger .. I can stave it off .. :)

Have a WONDERFUL DAY !!!!!

    Good luck and have a great day today. My daughters and I do puzzles. Two done and four more sitting on my dining room table waiting to be worked on. We are going to frame them all and hang them downstairs in our basement where my girls bedrooms are.

    Your cards are gorgeous!

    Glad you had a good time w/your Mom. Quiet time is all right.

    Men are a strange breed. They tend to internalize things and get quiet when they’re troubled or nervous. Give him time. He’ll tell you.

    Good luck to Kim. You’ve taught her well. She’ll be fine.

    Awwwwwww, love that minion! Hugs and thanks to you, too!

    Just one word of advice for this last 2 weeks . . . BREATHE! LOL, it's all going to be ok.
