Well Hell~   Leave a comment

So I should be jumping for joy that I have the next three days off.

And I am THRILLED but my boss decided to have a mandatory meeting tomorrow at two.

So I have to go in after all.


I was supposed to go get Keira and Kayla off to school tomorrow morning but their mother took a vacation day so I don’t get to see them after all.

Rather disappointing to say the least.

But I get to sleep later then five am so I guess that isn’t all bad.


Got home from work to charge my phone and it tells me I am not using the right battery charger so it won’t charge, which is bull because it is the only charger I have ever used for my phone.

Not sure what I am going to do about that.


I suppose I will have to go to Verizon tomorrow to get a new one.


I will look at Walmart first.

It will be cheaper no doubt.

No great plans for my days off other then grocery shopping, going to my husband’s sisters house tomorrow night for dinner, and going to my grandson’s football game on Sunday.

But I definitely will enjoy the beautiful weather as much as I can.

Family Time ~   Leave a comment

Here in less than an hour I am going to Iowa City with my sister so she can give plasma…..and then we are meeting my brother and his wife for lunch.

They are heading back to Canada in the morning.

I have to work later today so it won’t be a long visit.

Two hours tops.

He has been here since last Saturday and this is the first time I will actuallyย  visit with him



This is my brother and his wife and her daughter.

Even so~   Leave a comment

I got home about twenty minutes ago from working.

I worked both days this weekend and even doing so, this weekend has flown by.

Not sure where it went to.

Still have to work tomorrow afternoon and evening and then have Tuesday off.

Then work Wednesday and Thursday and have Friday through Sunday off.
Which will be great.

The weathermen say it is going to be cooler by Wednesday and I sure hope they are right.

I am ready for cooler temps.

And I love the colors of fall.

Do I jinx it?   Leave a comment

I am not sure I should admit this but I am writing again.

I hope putting that down on this blog doesn’t make me jinx myself and I lose the will to write.

I ALWAYS want to write, I just can’t seem to get the thoughts from my brain to my fingers.


I so love to write.

I wish I had the ability to become published.

I wrote for over five hours yesterday, in between all of my interruptions.

And three today and only stopped because I had to go to work.

Tomorrow I won’t get a chance to write due to the family reunion and then work….


But hopefully it will come back to me on Sunday.

Hmm….   Leave a comment

I am on my day off.

I have to get into the shower here in a minute and begin laundry.

My day off consists of some house cleaning, laundry and getting groceries later.

They poured part of our street yesterday.

That is exciting to think here in about three weeks we will get to drive on our street and use our driveway again.

It stormed last night and I was soaked through by the time I parked my car and walked the half block home to my house.

Literally soaked.

I work the next four days after today.

Hate it.

Hate working on Friday and Monday’s when I work the weekend.

But alas it is what it is.

Some day I will never have to work again.


The days are boiling hot and will be till Tuesday.

Hate it.

Literally hate sweating.

Our family reunion is on Saturday and going to be disgustingly hot.

How I dread it.

Not seeing people but the heat.



Not like I can change it though so I shouldn’t complain.

I am trying to do less complaining.
