Another Week Gone By...

Do you know it is May already... Where is this year going... Six weeks from today the boys will be on summer vacation... and I will be on vacation... It will be here before we know it... I don't mind the working 9-5pm but it sure makes for not much time to get things done outside of work... however hubby has been lacking on his end with working 7-3pm... sure he gets homework done, but that is it... this past week I had to stay til 5:30, that I don't like, and dinner has not been ready, lol... nor any chores by him or son2... I have been getting dishes and laundry done in the morning before I leave... we are still working on a new routine... plus even though we spend a lot of time watching tv and clicking through facebook... we haven't had any actual down time... It's go go go, with work, school, keeping up with shows and computer addictions... and we don't have a day where we are all off on the same day, so one of us is always in work mode...

I have been going all week at work... keeping up on all the boxes coming in and stocking the floor... supervisor was gone all week at another store... she came back on Friday and I crashed, spent the day getting nothing done but talking... I was due... we had a new associate start, work two days, have two days off and not come back... sheesh... heard several reasons, not sure which one was true from; too hard of work, not enough money, family emergency, got another job... however she didn't quit, just never came back...

Been doing a lot of day dreaming this past week... was my sentimental week of the month... week before was my grumpy week... now I'm climbing back up to my one some what happy week... lol... a lot of plans in my head for self improvement, just need to implement them, but it's so hard to step out of routine, especially when it's go go go all the time, to switch gears on a new routine... some I feel I have my head wrapped around though toward maybe implementing... reaching a new time in my life... I'll be 45 in six weeks... time to shake things up, nothing big, just lots of little... I told son2 that I wanted the lesson of him not doing cheerleading to be us all getting our buttes back in gear... we've become hermits as of late with all the working and school... I had said no vacation this year with keeping an eye on the economy but now I'm thinking maybe a weekend in June back to Monterey to the hotel on the beach... and maybe a weekend in July to Legoland for son3's bday... buy those are easy goals, it's the every day changes that pass my by while I sit on the computer and time flies... need enough day to work, have computer time, clean, organize, relax, hobbies, family, me... I think part of it is I see it all done in my head but can't seem to get it done for real, lol... but then when I do start something, it only stays done til the next day and then I start all over again, never getting to not everything on my list but everything that should get done in a day...


Today was the cheerleader try outs... son2's 'girl' friend made the team and she said another guy also... actually it is competition cheer and she also said 23 people made the team... of course we were not there, since we decided we are not a cheerleading family... Son2 seems to be taking it ok now... he was researching keyboards earlier and wants to change his elective for next year to piano... he and son3 just finished watching Ghostbusters... now they have started Ghostbusters 2... they are still in pjs and hubby will be home any minute... I was up early with hubby, spent a while on facebook, checked my email, showered, fed son3, trimmed the roses, took some pictures of the roses, ate lunch while I read some of my Nora Roberts book: Born in Fire, watched Ghost Whisperer from last night, made all the bday and holidays cards for May, just remembered I started a load of laundry that has been done for a while, posted pictures of roses on Facebook and http://notjustroses.blogspot.com/ and here I am doing an entry... Going to make scrambled eggs and sausage dogs for dinner and we have The Day the Earth Stood Still with Keneau Reeves to watch... Harper's Island comes on tonight instead of last Thursday and then I will be asleep.... Tomorrow I only work 6am-12:45 cause when I get home we are going to see Wolverine... I can't wait!!



Happy Journaling...

I think the older we get the faster times speeds by on us. I swear I can never get enough done in a day anymore myself.

I saw the movie "The day the Earth Stood Still". Loved it, kind of eerie reality. (Hugs)Indigo

Your normal day just exhausts me. You must be like a whirwind around the house. Of course maybe I was like that when I was younger and the kids were still home~back in the 1970's. Your roses are really pretty. When I was working in a Family Practice Clinic, they hired a new gal in Medical Records. She came the first morning and seemed to be happy but never came back from lunch. Never did hear what happened to her. Have a good rest of your weekend...Linda in WA

You have a lot on your plate. Some things just need to wait to get done.
Your ME time is important. We forget that when we are taking care of everyone else.
At least you have vacation to look forward to:)
Hugs,Sheri
