I'm so confused!
Thursday, September 09, 2010      5 comments

I'm sitting here, reading that today is the 9th. What on earth did I do yesterday? (cue Twilight Zone music). I did so much work that I shifted myself into high gear and took off to who knows where! Again, it doesn't help that there is no M... Read more
Where I find myself today.

I did not get a notification of any jobs this morning, so I made the decision to work at home today and turned off the possibility of getting a later call to rush into work. Today was catch up on housework day. My goal for the day was to make ... Read more
Crazy day!

Today was certainly an adventure. Last Friday I received a call to sub. I said that I would take the job and she said that she would put it in the "system". That usually means that it shows up on my calendar in the system and I receive an e-m... Read more
What day is it?

Monday holidays always throw me off my game. I thought it was Sunday all day long. We had a delightful weekend. It was just so nice to have all our children under the same roof for a couple of days. We are at that interesting stage of devel... Read more

Friday, September 03, 2010      8 comments

First and foremost I am a grateful creature today. The older (read MORE EXPERIENCED) I get, the more I see that if I relax into the PLAN and focus on the gifts, my heart is filled with joy and life is truly a beautiful experience. Yesterday I... Read more

My evening is going to be disrupted by going to pick up DH who is on his way back from Chicago. So better blog while the blogging is good. I am working hard to relax. Hurricane Earl is threatening to screw up our wonderful weekend plans. Our... Read more

Cooler weather ahead. Yea! My goals for August were: Walk daily. Eliminate 10 pounds. I eliminated 8 pounds. I'll bet that if I had accomplished that "walk daily" part of my goal, I would have met my second goal. BUT progress, not... Read more
Sunday evening already?

My weekend was spent recuperating from the fifth graders. (Fifth is an ordinal number. I learned that in Math this week.) I decided that my job this weekend was to get myself back in order and ready to go back and do again tomorrow. I had to... Read more
Lessons from school.
Thursday, August 26, 2010      7 comments

It's time for me to go to bed. But I find that the discipline of listing "positives" is important for me. The lesson that I am learning from school is watching me set myself up for more stress than necessary. How difficult is it to have yo... Read more
Back to school!

I have been having some anxiety about getting back into subbing. The nature of the job is that you have to constantly be on your toes. For me that means that I have to be on the top of my game. Wanda had a quote this morning that was to the e... Read more

It's late. I can do this! Positives. I cleared off my desk and as soon as I did, my son came home with a huge packet of papers from school. All sorts of forms that need signatures. Yikes. It's a never ending sea of papers! I h... Read more
Do or do not, there is no try.

I guess today I would have to say I wound up in the "do not" category. It was actually an amazing thing to watch. I STILL have not cleaned off my desk. (I typed nest for desk the first time. I must have been thinking about all the "nesting" I ... Read more

It has been a wonderful summer and now it comes to a close. Although, my sister noticed that since moving to Texas from upstate New York, the weather fools me in to thinking it's summer up until about November. It creates a very relaxed sort of... Read more
A little less talk
Saturday, August 21, 2010      8 comments

a little more action. I had a busy day and didn't accomplish a whole heck of a lot. Did you ever have one of those days where the phone rings every time you hang it up? I ran out of batteries in my remote phone today. It was just that kin... Read more
Fabulous Friday, or is it?
Saturday, August 21, 2010      4 comments

I think it was fabulous. It was kinda fabulous until I was in the check out line of the grocery store and #3 son called and started his conversation with "Uh, you're not gonna like this. . ." So my mind races through all the possible scenarios... Read more
