TGIF

I am so glad it is Friday and this week is over... My house is a mess... I've gotten nothing done this week... Well I have almost finished reading Twilight that son2 borrowed from his friend... And son3 studied his spelling words all week. This week's words: people, easy, busy, taught, picture, listen, follow, focus, effort, computer, correct, details, review, noun and verb... Son2 had to pick his classes for next year and potential electives... Son1 had jury duty so I had to check the computer each day, but he never did have to go in... I forgot to mention when he came over for son2's bday that he told us he got another dog, a Dachshund/Terrier Mix, a girl dog... He already has Danny... And he has a hamster too.... Son3 has had a cold all week and now hubby is getting it... Hubby is still working his day hours, but didn't check the schedule and found out when he went in today that he was scheduled late, I don't understand how people don't look at their schedules to see what they are working... Hubby of course just assumes it's the same every week... But the people I work with don't even look until the day before... I like to know for the whole month, lol, but only know for the week... And now they are having to move people around again at his work, so he may have to go back to closing a few nights... I have mixed feelings... On the one hand I like him home earlier in the evening but he has not been getting any of his chores done... So we will see when he goes back to nights if between the two of us we get this house back in shape... I have had to get up several times to referee son2 and son3 who are bickering with each other and me.... grrrrr.... Son3 has still not pulled his tooth that has been loose since December, so I told him no games until he wiggles it... Oh the drama, just for him to wiggle it... Work has been dramatic this week too... On the one hand I have gotten lots done... However the company is going through some restructuring due to the economy and so three managers were let go this week at our store... I realized today that is was the same positions that replaced mine after I was restructured four years ago... It's unsettling what other changes we will go through this year... Meanwhile with hours low for it being only January and medical insurance going up, my paycheck is not much anyway... But I am fortunate to have it... And I am lucky to be here... On the way home today I was sitting in a long line of traffic waiting for the light to turn green, when out of the corner of my eye I see a flash of the car behind me as he has to slam on the brakes and swerve to the shoulder to avoid hitting me as he was going fifty and not seeing that the cars were stopped... At first I thought it was a young guy but after he got back in line behind me I saw it was a middle aged man... And then I noticed the lady behind him talking on her cell phone, last year they passed the law of hand free cell phones only, hers was not... Then to the left of me a truck drives past, going the wrong way, as it is only a two lane road, he continued driving past all of us waiting for the light until he reached oncoming cars and then he merged back in line with us... I'm so glad to be home where I can curl up comfy cozy and finish reading Twilight and watch some TV when hubby gets home and get a good night's sleep and wake up refreshed to tackle my list that has been waiting all week.... I miss Raisin....
Happy Journaling...

I heard Twlight was a good book and people couldn't put it down

so glad you didn't get hit while you were in traffic; its amazing how many people I still see on cell phones, law or no law

I think we are going to have a good 2-3 years if not more of tough times; such a sad state of affairs; I just keep trusting in the Lord :)

have a good weekend :)

I'm so glad you made it home safe and sound. The drivers are crazy and most days I see a near accident too. Hope your Saturday is a good one and I know what you mean about missing your cat. I still look for mine and miss having a purr sitting on my lap. Most of the time when I was on the computer, she'd be right here with me. Take care! 'On Ya'-ma

I thought in CA if the cops saw you even holding a cell phone up to your ear they could pull you over. Sounds like that need to be enforced. I'm so glad to be retired & not worrying about work issues. Actually within a year after I retired my job had been out-sourced. I wish I'd stayed for that...it would have been a nice severance but I didn't know they were going to do it. We miss your sweet Raisin too. Linda in Washington

Oh I am so glad that driver did not hit you!! LOL getting son 3 to wiggle his tooth ... yes we've had some trouble with that before too. Then they start trying to wiggle the new tooth coming in and I say NO don't wiggle the new tooth LOL. I know what you mean about chores from husband not getting done and adapting to schedule changes. It can be so frustrating. Hubby is home more during the winter so why don't I have more time I wonder sometimes? Hugs
