Whew! It’s been a busy few days.
I had a wonderful weekend spending time with the hubby, a nice dinner out at a great little Mexican place he found for us (awesome food!), friends over to play Guitar Hero and just have some laughs, a little “alone” time for he and I (lol) and some napping, too.
Yesterday I spent the day doing errands and trying to get some things accomplished before I start the new job next week. I never realized how much I have taken being at home all the time for granted. Procrastination hasn’t been a problem for the past year because I could always take care of it (whatever “it” might be) tomorrow.
I have a list of things I want to get done before Monday…and I have a decent start.
I finally managed (after some false starts over the past 10 days, gah!) to get the new screen door painted and hung (YAY!), some bills paid, met with our banker, started pressure washing the deck (it needs it baaaad), organized some of the kitchen cabinets, and even finished up a couple of journal pages (the one at left is a Zentangle doodle I started in my Moleskine and it just grew LOL) and a bunch of backgrounds in my journal(s)…not to mention the 2 1/2 hours of tennis with Richie, Shelby & Toad (the hubby, my youngest daughter & son-in-law, in case you don’t know the names.)
Whew! See what I mean about busy lately?
Today was a busy one, too. Had to take Jasper and Juno to the groomers (and they look so gorgeous!!!), which is 55 miles away in Tupelo, and it takes them a few hours to get to both of my precious boys so I ended up spending the day over there doing some shopping that I needed to do (new khakis for the job), a good lunch and lazing at Books-a-Million.
I’ve even started packaging up some of my goodies for my 29 Days of Giving (if you haven’t registered, I hope you will…HERE). I figure I better get on the ball with that so I don’t fall behind, huh?
I am still tired, as always, but changing my attitude and my outlook is paying off…big time! The tired that I feel these days is a good kind of tired. I’m sleeping better than I have in months and it really is true that energy begets energy…playing tennis is not only fun but is great exercise (and I’m getting much better at it, too.)
Tomorrow looks to be fairly busy, too…to the docs for a quick meeting about some changes in meds (no biggie, just some minor tweaks), an appointment with Shelby & Toad that I promised I’d help them with, grocery shopping & trip to the pharmacy, to the post office to drop off some books for PaperBackSwap (if you’re not registered, check out the link in my right sidebar and join…if you are a reader it’s fabulous!), then HOPEFULLY I can get some full-fledged art time in the afternoon just for ME…especially since I’m hoping that my Caran D’ache watercolor crayons will be here tomorrow. *quivering with excitement* lol
Oh, and I have this idea for a piece of art that will use some of these:
Hee…you’ll just have to hang around and see what I come up with, huh? I love to be a tease like that sometimes…she says with a sheepish grin. I may even do a tutorial using them…woo hoo!
Ah, the busy-ness of life.
But hey, busy is good.
Life is good.
I wish the same for all of you.
And to my girlie, Robin…I didn’t forget you, busy-ness just got the best of me. Happy 42nd Birthday, honey…I love you.
Peace & Love,
