Oh mygoodness, it has been forever and a day since I have written anything for this site. I was doing pretty good for myself, and then I let it start to slack. I blame the winter blues for certain, because a couple of weeks ago we had an absolutely STUNNING weekend and I got so much stuff done around the house it wasn’t even funny. The carpets where vacuumed and shampooed, hard floors were swept and mopped, curtains were washed, and windows were cleaned. I even washed all of the bed linens and got the laundry caught up while cleaning the kitchen and living room. My least favorite household chore is doing the dishes, but luckily Barry is wonderful about doing them for me when I ask (and sometimes when I don’t). Right now the biggie is cleaning the 30 gallon fish tank, which I will try to tackle early this week. When the water evaporates down the spraybar makes a very calming waterfall noise, but it can get rather irritating when you are trying to watch a movie and it gets to a very quiet part where all you can hear is WHOOOOSH!!!!! 🙂
Work is still going pretty well. Monday mornings are growing more and more difficult, I miss the weekends so badly. Two days of being free from the time clock and being able to choose if I want to get up early or sleep in (sleeping in typically wins) are too few and too short. They need to shorten the work week to four days a week. Hey, I would happily work 10 hour days again if I could get four days a week! When I first started here the schedule was 6a-4:30p Mon. thru Thurs. with three day weekends. I miss those good ol’ days. That extra day on the weekend means a lot, you can get all the housework caught up for the week and still be able to relax, not forced to pick one or the other. Plus, I do believe workplace morale was much higher in those times. I know our paychecks were, especially if we worked that extra shift on Friday and got OT. Those days are sadly long gone, along with several other benefits we used to get. C’est la vie, I suppose.
The doggies were so adorably cute this morning, they did not want their mommy to get out of bed for work. The snuggled closer and closer each time I hit the snooze button, which made it harder and harder for me to get up. They were awake when I left, and looked so saddened that I had to go. I suggested they cuddle with their daddy (he was still snoozing away peacefully), and I assume that once I left they took me up on the offer and took their spots beside of him. I like it when they decide to wake him up. It’s hilarious to see both chihuahuas crawling and climbing all over Barry to get his attention.
I want to ask for prayers, happy thoughts, good vibes, or whatever else it is you do for two people in my life. A gentleman I used to work with named Floyd lost his job and is homeless. Poor guy is dealing with a lot of stress, and says that he has been having chest pains. Also, the mother of Julie my yoga instructor had a car accicdent last week. She survived (luckily) but blew out her knee in the collision. She has a long road of rehab before they can replace her knee, then more rehab after the surgery.
We watched the movie Up last night. It was a good little movie, and I don’t want to post much so that I don’t ruin it for those that have never seen it, but it had me crying within the first 5-10 minutes. It definately touches your heart, and if you have not seen it I highly recommend it. The dogs in it are adorable, especially Doug. 🙂
I guess that is all for now, I will put up more when I think of more. Take care!!
