Oh Ladies- My alarm to early- to bed too late!!!!! Everybody's working for the weekend!!!!!!
Well- Blue- you are going forward and there is no other way to avoid your storm. Just put on the rain boots and put up your umbrella. But keep in mind it will stop and the sun WILL come out again. YOU will nest up again. It really does get to a point you just want the mess over and gone and to move on.
So do you have a dead line for getting your house ready and on the market? I would think you want to do it in the summer. That is when people buy- before school. Plus- it would be good if you are able to swing it so you are not paying both.
I loved your description of your evening!!!! It is TOO HOT to sit outside here!!!! So good for you to keep those memories- that truly is a summer evening at it's BEST!!!!
NIC- If I was with you we would definitely go to the Frank Loyd Museum!!!!!! Boy I would love that. I want you to tell us all about it!!!! VERY COOL!!!!!
Ya know - I just have to share this story. So I had this lady I was sorta friends with. We ran in the same circles anyway. In a way she always bugged me. to dam perfect. She had the NERVE to tell me my kids were WILD.
They weren't - they were just kids and I let them BE KIDS!!! Well Miss Prim and proper always felt free to give me advice on how to raise kids. I had 2 , she had 2, same ages and they always played together. We went to the same church, and our hubby's were better friends, so I was stuck having to listen to her.
Her children were always clean and well mannered. Mine played in the dirt and could be loud. But they were never disrespectful. But she was of the mindset that kids should be seen not heard.
Remember that? Anyway, Oh..... AND she home schooled, was their and blond and a doctors wife and never worked. Looking back- we had nothing in common. Then she had the 3nd child. This kid had personality from the womb!!!!! I loved the fact she had a wild child. It shook her world!
Her kids are now grown- and she is single and working. The point to the story- the 3nd wild child. Turned out to be the most fun, lovable, and creative and is doing well. So ya know those kids that dance to a different beat- are usually the ones that are the most adaptable in life. I know they are a challenge.
I love your description of GROWN UP EVENTS
HAHAHA- We all have those don't we.
Lori- Your dinner sounded AMAZING!!!!! Yum- I haven't eaten at a steakhouse like that for awhile! Sounds yummy though!
Oh- you do have a sweet spot in your life right now!!!!!! Love it!!!!
As Blue says- life is EBB and FLOW. Right now you are in the flow and working it beautifully.
Enjoy your restful day! how is your sister doing these days. You haven't written about her lately!!!!
You know I seem to have drama follow me. Seriously!!!! I just don't think I would know how to act if life was even keel anymore. I am so used to the survival mode. No wonder my adrenal glands are burned up. HAHA
So I need a new car- ya I said it. On top of everything. So right now my horn is broken ,and my trunk won't open. why you ask? Because the underneath of my car is MELTING. According to the mechanic my wires are really melting. He said to unload that lemon quick. He showed me the wires he pulled from my car. They ARE melted.
Yes I probably could go back on the car maker. But I have had the car 5 years. Time to just cut my loses and move on. I was pretty devastated yesterday. I was hit on all fronts yesterday, work, personal. I just didn't deal with it all yesterday.
So , I was given the directive to come into the office yesterday after my conference. So I show up- and get there in time for my NEXT meeting. So there was really good stuff I wanted to share from my 2 days. M told me to be quite, they didn't have time to listen. It was so abrupt that the other people in the room looked at my face when she said that and THEY felt bad.
Two people approached afterward to ask how my class went. When M- shut me down so abruptly- I just gathered up my stuff put it back in my folder and crossed my arms and glared at her and never said another word to her the rest of the day.
So from that meeting we went to a TOWN HALL- to hear about the move that is coming. So the bean counter were there. Ya know- I am so jaded right about now. So THEY were giving their speal on the new building, blah blah blah blah. Anyway at the end- was questions. So of course I had to ask, "Did you all consider those people that live over an hour away, when you decided to close this building"???????????
The answer was appalling- yes they considered. "We know that people will need to consider, what they need to do".
Code for they don't care if the entire team quits.
I had a notebook in my hand and went back to my desk, and threw it hard - it knocked over a cup and crap went flying on the floor. Quite noisy. I had half my team coming over to see what the commotion was. Yes I was having a temper tantrum. But you know what- my teammates were right there with me. They all said I was just voicing what they were all feeling.
I know I will get called out for it. And I don't care. I have been pushed enough.
So, next on the agenda- what kind of car do I want????? I spent the evening on the internet- car hunting. So do I want to get my "dream" car now? Do I want to go cheap? Do I want another midsize sedan? I was looking at convertibles last night. The ticket on those are....... HA-
the saga continues......... The WOE- however is doing GREAT. Of course!
ok- time to roll - we can do this!!!!!!!
