May Day!

This month is flying... This whole year is flying faster then the past ones if that is possible... Wasn't it just Valentine's Day... Hubby hasn't even had a chance to redeem his coupons yet, lol... and Easter seems like just a couple of weeks ago... but yet we have already had Mother's Day and now are heading for Father's Day... Three weeks from tomorrow the boys will be done with school for the summer... I haven't even organized a plan for my New Year's resolutions yet...

And here it is Wednesday again... my day off... my morning of me time... of course I always have a day's worth of plans for the morning and a week's worth of plans for the day...

This past week we saw 106 degrees... Now we are back in the 90's... of course it is a cool 77-78 in the house with the air conditioner... although it is always 78 in the house and yet it could be 74 or so outside...

I finished reading my Nora Roberts book: Trilogy; Born in Fire, Born in Ice, Born in Shame... Oh! it was so good!! I did not want it to end... Actually Born in Shame did end too soon, as we did not get to go to Murphy and Shannon's Wedding... nor hear more about Shannon's paintings or what children they had... But there was Maggie, the artist who blew glass who married Rogan the gallery owner, and she was pregnant with their second child... And Shannon, the owner of a bed and breakfast with the beautiful garden who married Grayson the author of suspense books, who she had a daughter with... The stories take place in Ireland in which you feel you are there the way Nora tells a story.... I want to go... I just wish I knew how to paint or draw.... hubby is the artist in our house... but then I wish I could be as good a housekeeper or cook as Shannon was in her B&B... lol...

Son3 is back to homework after our break for their testing... this week's spelling words so far: multiply, fiction, whole, narrow, private, silly, different, vertical, always, enter... We finished the pictures from magazines project... of course I went way beyond the ten pictures she requested but then she only chose five and sent the rest home... son3 and hubby still have to make the diorama but the teacher hasn't sent home any instructions on what the report should entail... Son2 still of course continues to not have homework... but he'll have finals coming up soon...

Work has been frustrating... we've finally got to the point where we are caught up and finally getting into a routine of sorts when they introduce this new process we have to do... each Monday we have to count one department in shoes... this week was athletics... so of course on Monday the entire Nation counted causing the devices to run so slow that it took 13 seconds to scan each shoebox... it took three of us twelve hours to count the department of course leaving no time to work the report... we were finally able to access the report yesterday but with days off we won't see the report til tomorrow... of course any updates to the report had to be done on Monday at the end of counting... hopefully next week this goes better.... hmmmmm... otherwise my 9-5 days are seeming way too long... I so have spring fever and just want to be home playing... three weeks til vacation....

I have not been organized with chores and dinners this past week.... we've picked up chinese and pizza a couple of days... last night was leftover chinese and if you were tired of that then cereal... We're almost finished with all the season finales... We watched all the Harry Potters, so are ready for when the new movie comes out in July... And we started watching Season 1 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer... son3 is really liking it... he likes scary movies that he is able to watch cause they are not too scary, plus he likes all the fighting action scenes...

The laundry and dishes await me... I do think I am all caught up on the computer today so I just may get to read some blogs... :) and homework with son3... and make a decent meal for dinner tonight... and I still haven't made that chocolate cake....

Happy Journaling...

The 7 to 4 days that I have are really getting to me. With retirement in the future, the days seem longer than ever. I want to enjoy the nice days and not by looking at them through a window here at my desk. Thankfully I have the weekends, but they do go by so fast. It could be worse and I am thankful for my job. So many don't have one. I know you must be counting down the days til vacation. 'On Ya'-ma

If I was there, I could at least do the dishes. 82* in the shade here. I think we're going to San Clemente Tuesday and camp for a few days. I want to go to Sea World in San Diego. We went to the zoo in March last year when we were on that cruise and then on the Oct cruise we took a tour of San Diego harbor on that Duck thing. Tell them all hi...Linda

Yes, the days and months are moving by way too fast. That's fine during the winter, but I would like to see that days slow down now. I'm afraid summer will be over before I can really enjoy it.
Have a great Thursday.

Yes it is hard to believe summer is almost here all ready!! I love your header in your journal... I'm so glad you have air conditioning with those temperatures. We should be getting our new one anyday now. Hope you enjoyed your day off. We are big pizza and chinese food eaters in this house too. I told Rob no more going out to eat for a while though because our family has four graduates this year and I have to send each one a nice gift. Those books sound awesome. Much hugs,
