June Fifth

Two more days til the visit… I’m actually doing fine today… we are working the best we can and that is all we can do… see what we can do the next two days… my boss actually told me today she was finding me some help from within the store… so have at least one extra associate tomorrow til she finds more… and my old supervisor will be helping… of course we have been torn up from the weekend again so will start from the beginning again tomorrow…

I have learned a few things… one being maybe we should have just done business as usual instead of trying to get ready for the visit the last two weeks… especially since we are more behind now anyway… and of course we probably wouldn’t have been all stressed out… also learned a bit more about each of the associates and how I will assign tasks… and scheduling… I can’t wait to be on vacation next week but then so much to still do at work after the visit… one day at a time…

Last week of school for the boys… son3 has game day tomorrow and is bringing the Pirates of the Caribbean Life game… Tuesday is the water park field trip… Wednesday is reading day, they are to bring books, magazines, comic books and snacks… Thursday is the last day and yearbook signing day… son2 has finals but a couple of classes he is already done with… like Geometry, he got the highest grade in the class and doesn’t have to take the final…

We had leftover lasagna and salad for dinner… son1 was here and borrowed season one of How I Met Your Mother so we watched a couple of episodes… so funny… especially Neil Patrick Harris….

Rain stopped for today… but clouds are moving in and windy with 70% chance of rain again tonight…

Need to get the boys and the kittens settled in for the night… and have some ice cream and watch Twilight Zone with hubby… we fell asleep last night while watching…

And as soon as this visit is over if not now… I am back on my weight loss… I have gained three pounds the past week on top of the eight pounds I gained at Christmas that I have been trying to lose to get back to my 33 pound weight loss…

The rain has started already and it is lightening and thundering…

On this day, God wants you to know

... that you will get back to solving all the wrongs in a moment, - how about taking a moment to treasure what is right. All too often we focus so intently on solving the problems, that we forget to zoom out and celebrate what is good in our life already.

Happy Journaling…

WTG for son2 doing so well in geometry he doesn't have to take the final!! I bet you'll get back on track with eating/weight loss after the visit and that stress is done with; seems like you are learning some valuable lessons about it this time around that will carry you through mabye the next time around with the next visit. I also bet you are soooo excited too about being on vacation soon!

I love the thought about focusing on what is right in our lives. Good advice there for all of us. Hope you are celebrating what is good in your life today. I will be.
Have a great Monday!
