Working out the kinks...


Waiting for hubby to come home from work... He had to go back to work and cover for a meeting tonight at work... Son1 is off with his friend A, son2 was home from school today as he hurt his back at school yesterday jumping over a bench and son3 is getting settled in bed for the night... Son2 is saying he can't go to school tomorrow either as he can barely move and yet he hasn't gone to bed to rest...
I had a good day at work today... Finally got the boxes caught up and so got to stock today and work on clearance and clean the men's section... Tomorrow I have an ad to set, open the new boxes that they brought and finish stocking men's shoes...
I'm feeling a bit better today... still need to work on a routine for myself around here... have lost myself again with son1 moving back home... I'm thinking all time I have been spending on the computer on facebook was me hiding... so I have cut way back on facebook, just checking friend status, my zoo and yoville... so I have been visiting blogger more to get back in the habit of blogging instead, besides blogging makes me more accountable, lol, list all my plans and chores and then have to follow through on them to blog about them, lol...


With son1 back home too feeling like I'm having to be the responsible one and not giving myself permission to do what I want, to set a good example or something... I did confront son1 about his puppy and giving it back to the original owners, of course that led to a lot of drama and words said by both of us... think it was what we needed though to get past all the tension... I have since compromised on the puppy staying but I rather have my backyard back... He did cook dinner one night and had an interview for automotive at my store, well actually he had an interview with human resources and is still waiting for the automotive manager to call him for an interview... so he's going to call the store tomorrow and see what is taking all week... two months now and unemployment has not kicked in yet... since he traded cars he has new expenses with that for registration, smog, broken light covers and fixing the exhaust... yesterday his girlfriend came over for the day to have lunch and watch movies... I got nothing done, no housework, I like to clean when no one is home, someone is always home, and I had a headache all day on my day off... no me time....
Between me, son1 and son2 we all do the dishes and yet there are still pots and pans soaking in the sink and none of our other chores are getting done... Son2 is supposed to be showing me that he can do his chores consistently in a timely manner, not just when he wants to go somewhere... guess who wants to go somewhere tomorrow, lol... of course with his back hurting, don't think he will even make it to school again... he just needs to work out the muscles, they're all kinked up...
Son3 is just being his bouncy 8yr old self... getting all his homework done, still working on our 3x, hopefully tomorrow he'll pass to 4x... not sure if he has a spelling test tomorrow or next Friday... still figuring out his school schedule, not quite matching her agenda from back to school night... plus still need to get on a better home schedule too of going to bed on time...


Hubby's home... I'm watching Supernatural... Can't wait til the new fall shows start... My Nora Roberts book I have been reading is so good!... Holly is mad at me... I forgot her in the garage today when I went to work, she had food and water but it gets hot in there... I'm sorry Holly... Hubby says she is back in the garage again... she likes it in there... I made a turkey last weekend, lasted for three days but wasn't as good as Thanksgiving... Yesterday I made a pork roast with potatoes and carrots... It's 10pm and I have to get up for work early tomorrow... but then I get off early... if we buy dinner at Carl's Jr tomorrow night, 25% of the proceeds go to son3's school.... maybe teriyaki burger... mmmmmmmmm...
Happy Journaling...

Things will get sorted out soon and adjusted with the son being back home. Hope all going well. I get more cleaned when I'm by myself too. Hard to vacuum when people are in there watching TV....lol

Have a good day.

seems like you are busy, as usual; I love Carl's burgers; I had the guacomole one last week and it was delicious! I like fundraisers like this one at son3's school; beats the wrapping paper ones for sure.

totally understand the adjustments being made with son1 back home; hoping he gets a job soon; I think that makes a difference; him having somewhere to be, etc., though son here still looking (not hard enough LOL)

I had to just decide to let Facebook go. Thankfully I never got into the games, but between Facebook and Blogger, I knew I would have no life (not that I have one anyway, LOL) so I just thought I would do Blogger more. I know it is soo addicting though over on Facebook.

I'm with you about cleaning. I have learned to clean around people and I try not to run the vacuum cleaner until after 10 a.m. to give people a chance to sleep in

hoping son2's back feels better soon (probably tonight when he wants to do something with friends, LOL)

enjoy the weekend; it is going to be HOT here. Oh joy!

I totally understand that it is good to have time on your own. When my older kids are home, I love it, but I do get thrown off. I hope your son gets a job really soon!

Love the header picture of Holly. We actually have a Carl's Jr in the north end of Tacoma and another one opening out here in my end of town soon. The first weeks of school are always hectic...getting back into routines, etc. I hope #2's back is ok soon. That's not fun. I'm loving our rain & wish I could send some your way....Linda

Sounds like life is just rocking right along at your place. Full of the little joys and small irritations that always accompany it. Sorry I've been such a poor visitor. Love ya!
