Jan 30

What a day!  Got ready to go to class and when my daughter got here to go with, I realized that I hadn't filled my water bottle that I normally take! Ugh!  Work out was great, lots of jumping but good cardio. Then, when I got to work, I noticed...

Jan 29

Another weekend has gone way too quickly.  I don't really know where all the time goes.  Yesterday was spent purging some of the closets that I just stash.  Today was a few more.  I did find some Tupperware lids that I thought I had lost. They were in...

Jan 28

It has been a productive week, remodel speaking anyway.  The tile was laid and grouted this weekend and we have picked out our counter top and the color of the stain.  Unfortunately this could have been done weeks ago and didn't know that. Hopefully...

Happy Happy Birthday to the first little!  Hard to believe he is 8!!!! Boy.... I feel just a tad old.  He is a fantastic kid. I had a massage tonight.  Really needed that too.  Sore spots all gone for the time being.  My massage therapist is...

1/23

I took Mom to the Dr. today, she had to get a shot in her eye (ick).  Then we met hubby at the cabinet shop to pick out our counter top and sink for the bathroom.  That done, it is going to be another couple of weeks, as they haven't even started...

Relaxation Sunday

The birthday party last night was really good, we got to play with the littles and get them all wound up for Mom and Dad to put to bed after we left.  The littlest little was getting so excited that she could walk, she would take about 6 steps before...

Jan 20

I have survived the few days without a boss, however yesterday proved a couple of challenges.  Nothing we couldn't handle, but, just not a smooth day.  Unfortunately what went wrong the repair people felt they needed to call the boss instead of just...

The mice will play

Well not really, we still do our job, but it is just a bit fun when the boss is gone.  He calls before boarding his flight, I know he's kind of a nervous Nelly, but, really we can handle things while he is gone, and if not we would give him a call. ...

Ice Ice Baby

Our little neck of the woods suffered an ice storm.  School closed, some businesses shut down, and for the most part people stayed home.  I made it to work an hour late and the boss shut the doors 2 hours early.  Pretty easy day.  4 customers all day....

Birthday day!

The kids were all here to celebrate DD birthday.  Grandma soup and Ice Cream cake MMM Good!  We played a horse race counting game with G and had a good time. After they all left I decided that I was going to go for a walk, I thought about calling a...

Grocery Getter

Our community is having a breakfast next weekend and I was in charge of picking up the groceries for them.  Fortunately hubby went with me today as there was a lot and also the groceries that we needed for ourselves.  5 hours later we were home and...

Friday the 13

I'm not a superstitious person so this being Friday the 13 really didn't bother me.  I actually had trouble remembering that is was actually Friday and the 13th.  This week being the first full working week of the year just confused me.  It is really...

Thursday

So I think I have made a decision on my organizational position.  Right Wrong or indifferent hubby and I were on the same page. Yesterday's workout air kickboxing Oh my land!  I hurt in spots that I didn't realize could hurt.  Well technically yes...

Things to consider

So, being involved in an organization sometimes you get asked to take a position that gets pretty scary.  I have been involved in this my whole life.  I really do enjoy what I do, but sometimes I get overwhelmed.  Right now I have a decision to make...

Another Manic Monday

HA! Well not really! Small towns don't generally get manic unless it is 4th of July and there is a parade.  Work was okay, planned the boss' vacation (YEAH US!) Seems rather odd, but yup, I have even tied ties for him and his sons. My workout today...

Adventures alone

Today being Sunday, the day was unplanned.  Hubby got called in to fix a water main thus leaving me to figure out how to spend the day.  I had a couple of small (literally 15 min) sewing projects to finish and a couple loads of laundry.  Dishes were...

A morning with the Littles

The Littles visited today.  They are all so very happy and content.  Despite the age difference, they play well together and deal with the baby's getting into the middle of playing. Laughter, giggles and "OH NO! I GOT THE OLD MAID!" are just enough...

A basketball memory

So tonight we went to the high school basketball game.  Our team was playing the number 1 rated team in the state of Iowa our girls are ranked #7.  Now we are in different classes so the end result really had no negative for either team.... other than...

Remodel update

So the bathroom remodel is slow and go.  It all takes time to get the shower installed, drywall back up and all taped and mudded.  I feel bad that our "contractor" has made numerous trips over (granted he is only about 6 miles away) just to mud, sand...

Baby it's cold outside

Unfortunately, we have had pretty decent weather this winter.  Therefore my body hasn't acclimated to the cold temperatures that we experience frequently.  Today, the temperature was in the single digits.  If the sun shines and the wind isn't blowing...

The first of the year

So today, as for many was the first day of work in the new year.  In my position, I write a lot of checks for our customers, 76 today to be exact. Down from years past. The customers are amazing, some don't necessarily care if they have their check...

2017

Each year the idea of setting resolutions comes up, whether they be weight loss or working out or whatever.  This reminds me alot of Lent and giving something up for the six weeks prior to Easter.  Now, I am not judging people on whether they do or...
