January Ninth

 

wbh

All right I don’t know what I’m waiting for… well except for the phone to ring for hubby to get a job… I have great plans for all I want to get done for each day… and yet here I sit… at almost noon… on the third day of my vacation…

Pictures of me from Christmas that I meant to share…

Opening the first Vampirates before finding out I got all of them…

Opening the first Game of Thrones before finding out I got all of them…

Opening hubby’s card he made me… don’t remember what we were laughing at…

We were up early this morning… hubby got son2 off to college… I got showered, dressed, breakfast, son3 up showing me his videos on his DS and now he is on computer games, read some of my book, checked email, Facebook, blogs, Pinterest, hubby and I scratched our lotto scratchers from Christmas, winning a ticket and $4, hubby picked up son2 from college and I ate lunch…

Hubby is off getting the van oil changed and transmission fluid flushed…

Son2 is on his laptop…

I had planned on doing the above, especially when the first day of the new year was getting the new position… day nine and I haven’t started, not that there would have to be something in the jar every day… but yet as usual not following through with plans…

Speaking of work, I had plans of not thinking about work this week as I am technically between jobs so don’t have to worry about the old position and only have to look forward to the new position… nor did I have to go to work today to make the team schedule like I usually do on vacation… and yet there is no schedule posted for me and schedules are due today and my new boss is off so he would finish the schedule yesterday… so do I go in on Monday and work my old manager schedule (our schedules are posted for the whole month) or do I go in on Sunday and work the schedule of the job I’m replacing… now of course I’m thinking the Sunday schedule so I’ll be there for the ad as me and the other lead work opposite weekends… whatever I decide I’m seeing I’m going to have to call work and find out… and how’s that not thinking about work while I’m on vacation…

I’ve been thinking about doing some simple yoga to ease back into exercise and as not to irritate my neck… so I’ve been finding all kinds of pictures at Pinterest… but of course I have to actually do them…

Today I’m hoping to clean out my shirts… over a year ago I cleaned out my pants… and have yet to get to the shirts… and bake some cookies… and trim the roses… and finish reading my book: Mark of Athena… this seems reasonable and yet I foresee many interruptions from all the boys in the house… and empty the dishwasher that hubby ran this morning and fill and run it again as there are still dishes left to do… I’ve still left the dishes to him since he has not been working, but the last six months or so he is starting to fizzle out… so I want to get back into a habit of doing dishes too…

Let’s see what’s on the list of things I wanted to get done this week…

Email Kaiser Doctor as I keep running out of my Gabapentin as it blocks me from refilling til it thinks it’s time, not to mention the week I have to wait to receive in the mail…

Son2’s Birthday is at the end of the month: plan a little something…

Walk room by room and make a plan to do one thing every day this year…

Trim roses…

Trim vines…

Wash bedding…

Laundry…

Dishes…

Cooking/Baking…

Clean out my shirts/pajamas…

Posters in son3’s room…

Save pictures from laptop to flash drive…

Clean out graphic folders on laptop…

Organize desk some more…

Work apron, lunchbox, notebook, calendar ready for work…

Clean both bathrooms from top to bottom…

Plus it’s vacation so we should do some fun things…

Like the zoo or drive to the mountains to see the snow…

Son3 doesn’t want to do anything, not even get dressed, unless his friends call and then watch him go…

Ok this is how I wanted to start the week with this entry…

I’ve gotten a slow start to the week, but then it’s vacation and getting son2 settled back in college, and getting son3 back in the mind set that school starts next week and regrouping with hubby…

Did I mention that son1 called and somehow now we are watching Danny this weekend from Friday night through Sunday night as he and DIL are going to see family and work on his Jeep… They’ll take Kona with them…

Happy Journaling…

Lol..your list is making 'me' tired..
I get where you're coming from..I usually have a list of things I want to do when the week-end comes..and then I get caught up on the computer or watching shows on tv...Although I do have to say, it feels pretty darned good when I cross things off the list:)
Thanks for sharing the pictures..You definitely look happy with the things you received..

I do hope you get to do some fun things on your vacation. It's suppose to be your relaxation time. I know just being at home was relaxing for me even even if it meant getting jobs around the house done. You'd think they would let you know what your schedule is without you having to go in. Too bad you have to go in to find out.

I just can't believe son3 will be in 7th grade next year! I think it is good not to think too much about work this week, but it is confusing with the switching of positions, but I think I'd concentrate more on the new position than the old one since everyone knew your start date for that one would be when you return from vacation.

do, do something fine for your vacation!
