Final Reflection….

This last entry is also my last day of Spring Break. Sad about my break coming to an end but not the journal blogging. LOL As Spring is trying to enter with all the new and fresh plant life I hope this new season will also bring new and exciting adventures for myself and my daughter. After losing my spouse a couple years ago it has not been the most enjoyable as I am one that does not like doing things on my own. I know I must embrace each day, be thankful for all that we have and tackle the obstacles that try and knock us down. But I do not have to like it. Most days I put on a fake smile and do what needs to be done for her– So with each new Season that comes, I like to hope that this Season will be one that will make a huge differance in our lives, one that will be worth remembering for all time……..

Furniture shopping… ICK

I hate, hate, hate shopping for big ticket items. I do not have a probelem spending money- in fact I love to spend money. LOL My late husband was always my voice of reason. He did a great job keeping my feet on the ground when it came to me and shopping. What I hate is the fact it takes so long to find the perfect piece. There are many factors that go into finding just the right piece for a room. I spend months on end sometings even a year or TWO to find that perfect item. What hurts the most and is such a let down is when they deliver that item —– It’s DAMAGED. UGHHHHH I have such disgust and just want to punch out the poor delivery guy. Well that was me today. I spent over two years looking for a dining room hutch something that had to fit with the rest of my surroundings in the house and will fit the bill of holding the items I need it to hold. This past week was the week, I purchased the item after many hours of hunting just to have it delivered and the damn doors won’t stay shut. I told the delivery guys this won’t work and they promised the “fix it” guy would be in contact with me and will come fix it.

I hate, hate, hate, shopping for big ticket items and have the feeling of disgust and dissappointment be on the other side instead of happiness and all smiles. ……..

Where does the time go?

After starting my day today I realize Yikes, it’s already after 12:00pm and I ask myself what have I gotten done today? Not much- LOL. I guess I should give myself some credit, I did go for a walk. My break is winding down and so is my energy. The one thing my daughter and I have to get done today is a haircut and I must not miss that time. I thought we were going to get rain today and that does not seem to be the case, so the plan to do something indoors does not feel like the thing to do now. My daughter is perfectly content in staying in all day and watching Utube shows after having a sleep over with her friends last night. You can guess what kind of energy she has and the mood she is in today. .. ….UGHHHH

Looks like I am on my own today- Good day to take in a book I guess…..

Odds and Ends

There are days when you don’t have a plan of what you would like to do but you do little things here and there as the day goes along. Well that is my day today. Sadly I need to start with doing some report writing for work….. so not my choice on my Break but it has to get done. I’m looking forward to what else I will enjoy in this day as it unfolds….

What a day…

I’m very full from dinner tonight- it was well worth the wait today…. Let me start at the beginning of my day and share where it was that I ended my day–

It was another beautiful morning as the sun was shining and the chirpping of the birds greeted me as well. I got up and was excited to get dressed to take a morning walk. This is the weather that makes me excited to walk again and feel the sunshine on my face. ( Can’t wait for summer) After my walk my daughter and I had to tackle the clean out of the basement. Faith was not happy about this task as I have been talking about it for weeks prior to this week and how we have to get it done duirng out school Break. She dragged her feet but once we were downstairs she was good to go. She of course has a sleep over that is tomorrow that she wants to go to and so with that in her mind she will press on and get the task done. Funny how having something to look forward to always helps to get through a task. I too had something that was in the back of my mind today and that was dinner with some friends. We are trying a new place and I’m not sure what to expect. The day went by pretty fast and before I knew it I was getting ready to join my friends. Dinner was very delicious much to my surprise. It was all very good, even the cocktails. I don’t think I ate that much but I felt very full. I am glad we tried a new place and I will go back again — For Dessert !!!

Early to rise….

How does the wise tale go… Early to rise makes you healthy, wealthy and wise ! Well today with the sunshine greeting me first thing this morning I decided it was a good day to get up early and go for a walk– It was my FIRST walk for the Spring season. God I love walking outside and listening to nature all around me. The birds were talking and the dogs were too. It was a great morning to be out there and taking it all in. After my walk I had to get ready as my daughter and I had a date wtih a girlfriend and her kids. We packed up the troops and went downtown to enjoy one of my childhood favorite museums, MSI. It had not changed in all these years. It still had just about every exhibit that was there 25 years ago. When I asked my child what was her favorite part she picked the Coal Mine exhibit. That was mine too as a kid. All and all it was a great day. Hopefuly all the kids will sleep good tonight!
