January Twelfth

SweetSnowman_RJohnson

We’re flying through the new year already… The boys are three days back at school… And I’m still trying to get organized…

Hubby, son2, son3 and I are watching Legend of the Guardians; Owl of Ga’hoole… Son1 is off at the gym with his friend, using a free week pass…

Today I was off… I slept in, letting son1 and son2 get off to work and school their selves… hubby and I got son3 off to school including our walk… once home we had breakfast, went job searching online… I cleaned out the paper files for my entry for The Motivation Station for tomorrow… watched Emergency… picked up son3… math, spelling, and two paragraphs on Martin Luther King Jr for homework… first item I put into the shredder was too big and I broke the shredder… hubby tried to fix it but will continue tomorrow… several loads of laundry done and vacuumed… made dinner… and now we are watching the movie… plenty more I wanted to do but run out of day so quickly…

Was so nice to get away last weekend for a couple of hours to the snow… the boys and hubby sledded… I enjoyed the sun that we found above the fog… we had a picnic in the car…

I have been so grumpy and down this past week… part PMS and part  dreary winter weather… of course haven’t seen Chuck since before Thanksgiving… so maybe he is finally coming again… I have been eating out of control… still trying to get back to control eating so I can lose some more pounds… have gained just three or so over the holidays…

Lots of changes at work again or actually changing back to the old way… Still trying to recover from the holidays, such a mess… and everyone still shopping, every day we are still busy… and people are so messy…

Still not sure about the whole lead situation at work… Supervisor still doesn’t know if she will get the position she applied for and starting to change my mind if I want to apply for the shoe lead position if she leaves… just so much drama…

Only six more weeks of unemployment for hubby… of course the unemployment extensions were approved by the government… but hoping hubby gets a job before we have to deal with that… we made a new plan for job hunting and applying again today… we were stuck in a bit of a loop at the places we kept applying to…

Son1 will be moving into an apartment with a friend on February first… very nice, two bedroom, upstairs, across from the pool… girlfriend is not going back to city college but will be going to a cosmetology school starting at the end of the month…

I kept meaning to mention the results of hubby’s 24hr blood pressure monitoring… it was perfectly fine and the doctor will not be raising his blood pressure medicine… she still is not believing he just has white coat syndrome and his pressure is only high when she takes it…

Time to get the boys ready for bed and school and read with son3…

Wow lots of changes coming up, I know you will miss Son1 but I know it is a good thing for him to be on his own again. Good that hubby's BP monitoring went well and he doesn't need more meds! Good luck with the job search! I know it is so frustrating waiting and wondering about it all.

loved the picture of the snow! I bet it was fun for all!

Wow, you make my head spin! How do you even remember all the details for your posts? Still praying hubby will find a job soon. Believe me, I know how stressful it can be - been there, done that!

Tina said...

This sounds like a January post to me....trying to get organized, and lose a couple of holiday gained pounds. I'm sure you will accomplish that.

I really hope the job search goes well!

Serline said...

Good luck on the job fronts!

I'm finally caught up! Sorry I'm so far behind.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Sorry I haven't been blogging but it is so nice to stop in and catch up with all your happenings. I am whispering up another prayer for hubby and the job search right now.
