Just another unedited, sloppy installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…
I have got to figure out a way to roll with the punches – to not let changes in my schedule completely derail me and my efforts to do better. Last week there were two and a half days of no school – one for the Jewish holiday and one and a half for parent teacher conferences. There were some good spots – I got a lot of garden work done because the boy wanted to earn money and I heard some nice things at the conferences. Then there were the bad things – some whining and complaining (mostly from the boy but I might have chimed in a few times as well), the disruption of my routine, the loss of solitude, and most of all the noise, noise, noise!
Time is running out – already the nights are getting cold and I still have much garden work to do. One bright spot – my lilac has a few small blooms on it. This hasn’t happened before so I’m not sure what caused it but it is nice to look out and see them.
We are having a church group over for a Halloween cookout/campfire so I’ve been working on cleaning up and decorating. This is my secret for getting my house in order – I invite people over and then I feel like I need to get the place cleaned up. I know I should be keeping it cleaned but it isn’t always a priority for me.
Still have no job. I left a message with the horticulturist people but haven’t received a reply. I’m assuming that I did not make the cut and wonder if my age, lack of experience or something else is the reason why. Need to follow up so I can move on.
The hubby’s birthday is this week and as usual I don’t know what to get him. He tends to buy himself the things that he wants so there isn’t much that he doesn’t already have. There are some experiences he’d like to have but money, time and/or desire play a factor in my reluctance to go that route. Need to make a decision soon but for now I’m out to the garden to enjoy the sunshine and warm temperatures before they disappear.
Until next time, have a wonderful time wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
