TERRIFICATIOUS TUESDAY !!! Yesterday started out great !! but took a turn making a Uturn !

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

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 ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks


Yesterday's road trip was so much fun .. I was pooped by the time we got home .. and I got a purse (more like a sachel) out of it .. :) The machines were fun, and I got some stepping in. It was a fun day ... the machines were cooperative, and well --- I didn't run around like a banchee either .. We came home and I was nicely relaxed ....

We just hung around the house .. We got home around 3:30ish .. it had been sloppy rainy blahh all day long .. and I felt sorry for hubby having to drive .. that must have been exhausting .. but he did it .. :)

On the way home, I was happy because one of my friends texted and got some baseball tickets in June, but they are nights that she is scheduled for the dugout, and asked if I would like to switch a couple of my days .. One of which was the 8th .. Next week Wednesday, and I was excited because I had a spare day while during my bachlorettism .. and started making plans for myself .. (going to spend the day in Madison :) ) Everything was great .. :)

Then mom called .... and told me of her month .. Starting with May 3, her cleaning lady was coming, May 6, she was getting her new walk in tub installed, and May 9th is her first day of cards .. could I help her ??, and May 12 and 13th we would be in the Dells, and by May 15th (her birthday) she would be dead .. Well -- I know she was joking, but I told her .. just take it one day at a time .. We were just talking about her getting woozie when she over does it .. At least there's a day or 2 for her to build herself back up ... and that we should cancel the dinner on that Friday .. and then she did it .. she started whining .. (I keep telling myself that it was in kiddingness) .. but it hit hard .. and I got frustrated .. my days of R&R while hubby was gone, were getting thinner and thinner ..

Sunday -- I drop him off, in the morning and that's one of my free days (but since I'm getting him to the airport at around 4:30ish .. it's going to be a sleepy day for me .. but I'm thinking that will be my "tbone steak" day ..

Monday -- getting my nails cleaned up, having lunch with Julie .. my puppy club friend .. and then I want to stop off at mom's and drop off her perscription that I need to pick up .. as long as I'm in the area ..

Tuesday -- dinner with my friends ..

Wednesday -- is another free day which I told hubby I wanted to go to the Madison casino and spend alittle time there .. It's one of my favorites, and he isn't that hot on it, because it doesn't have "table games" .. just slots .. so that will be my day to go there, and just spend some time ..

Thursday .. helping mom with her card ladies ... I figured I would bring my yarn and crochet hook, and work on my squares .. :) On the way home, I want to stop at China King, and pick myself up a chinese meal ..

Friday -- NOW I have that day off .. but had to get frustrated because of it .. I just told her that she just told me that when she gets herself all worked up, she gets these woosie spells ... She has a busy 2 days coming up with the 12th and 13th ... I thought she should rest up ..

Saturday I have to myself .. WOOHOO !!!! and the sun is supposed to be out !!!! WOOHOO TOO !!!

Then Sunday and Monday will be with mom, and Tuesday ... hubby comes home ..

In the middle I want to defrost the back freezer, and do some stuff around the house .. and hubby is trying to make suggestions to fill in what I have left ?? Or I can do this before going to that, and I can do that before going to this ?? What happened to my RESTFUL week !!!!

In the midst of that .. My golf game suffered terribly ... :( but my heart wasn't in it .. Now that I've typed it out .. it doesn't seem as overwhelming .. ??? but at the time I was really upset .. and well -- I guess I hit the golf balls too hard .. lol lol ..

BUT .. My golf on Sunday night ... it was MY night !!!! :) I got both a record, AND I beat hubby !!! WOOHOO MEE !!!!!

Okay Sally -- let's get back to the present .. don't worry about the future until the future comes .. :)

Today ------ Today I want to start working on my "save the date" flyers for our party .. I already have an RSVP of YES from one couple that I had emailed asking for info she might have on someone else .. ??? YAY !!!!

It's still a gloomy day out .. and tomorrow I have a busy day ahead .. with getting my hair degreyed, and cleaned up and then the dugout (if it's open with all this rain and snow that has come through) .. I also want to stop and get a refill of my suppliments ..

NOW .. My challenge is not to look at everything going on .. look forward to my this Friday for the stamp show, as I've been getting together all of my stuff for my classes .. :) and with everything going on ... forgot my focus on my prize .. :)

I'm sure that the next week will be fine, and I will enjoy myself ... to the max .. I guess what got to me last night, was mom's whining .. about holding off on Friday ... and I wasn't in the mood at the moment if it was joking .. in that manner .. I'll see her on Monday afternoon after lunch with Julie .. because I'll be in the area, and can drop off her perscription; and can explain it face to face ... not that she'll understand ..cuz Monday she's got the contractor coming to put in her tub ... and she'll be mush for brains afterward ..

That's always been a challenge for me .. to focus on the present and the future will work itself out .. and now I can practice again on keeping focus on the present !!!! (with the stampshow coming up on Friday .. this is DIFFICULT !!!! but my goal for today is just to make it through tomorrows engagements and don't waste today stressing over it .. :) )

All this has kicked up a mega case of IBS this morning .. which I need to get over first .. and then move on .. so thinking today (gloomy day) is going to be a putzy quiet day ..

I hope that you have a TERRIFICATIOUS TUESDAY !!!!!! I'm going to try .. (and focus on the NOW) ..

Have a great day !!!!!

    I’m tired just reading all that you have going on. In the midst of all that remember to take a little time for yourself. The world will still be spinning if you eliminate a few things from your to do list.
    I’m still jealous that your hubby is going away without you. I wish mine would do that once in awhile.
    Mine is hovering around me more than normal because of my upcoming surgery. Can’t wait to get thru that.

    You sound like you never sit down. You are always doing something. I know you said you have a few days of relaxing in there but you look really busy. Make sure to take time for you.

    Glad that the road trip was good.

    Oh boy. Mama is causing some stress. I know how that goes. Sorry your restful bachelorette time is not happening!!!

    Definitely focus on the stamp show. That’s your shining light!

    Hope the IBS has settled down a bit by now.
