Flying Solo

Jack is out of town all week and this weekend so I have the house to myself. I do ok with the house to myself most of the time but I get lonely and bored. He's only been gone a day and I'm already starting to feel it... not a big deal but well I miss him. I imagine this weekend will be horrible but ah well.

Work is overwhelming. Way too much to do - when I get done w/ this post I have at least 2 more hours in front of me tonight. But the good news is I still love my job! The people are good, the pay and benefits are excellent and overall it is wonderful. Just need to get caught up :)

Onto other news I've done something to my back - no idea what. I went to bed Sunday w/ no pain and woke up Monday hurting. It hurts to bend, stretch my arms out or to rotate right/left, it even hurts to bend my neck. No clue what I've done - any ideas? I have my annual physical Friday and if its not better I'll talk to her about it....

Patches is walking around the house meowing (he's looking for Jack)... sweet if I don't kill him before he shuts up :)

Well, I gotta get to work TTYL

WoW - Life Is...

Life is such a gift. Many of us are walking thru our current existences wondering why we are here, where are we going next, why did THAT have to happen. It is so hard for us, myself especially, to stop and say WAIT this is just another day. Nothing that happens today is going to cause the world to end; it may seem like it does at that moment but in reality life will go on.

Lately I've been walking thru my life like a zombie:

1) Work
2) Work some overtime
3) Come Home
4) Watch TV or Read
5) Go to Bed & Start Over again

The house has gone to crap and as much as I want it clean I have no desire to clean it... Don't get me wrong my house is not nasty, it's just not clean. The floors need to be mopped, the laundry caught up, the dust bunnies need to be cleaned up and my bedroom well.... it looks like a tornado hit it! The problem is I don't care enough to do it.

Work is nutz. I stayed Friday until 8 pm to get caught up - then I had a migraine that put me in bed for two days this week; so know I'm even further behind. Not sure how to get caught up now I'm sooooooo far behind it's not even funny and it just keeps getting worse.

But life is a gift and he didn't give it to us so that we could sit around and worry about the next moment. We need to appreciate the moment we are in (even if you are cleaning house)... I need to remember that! I need to appreciate what I have and work to make it better. I need to breathe for just a moment and remember that life is good; treasure the moment!

Jamaica Day 2 and Part of 3

I'm relaxed - I mean really relaxed and it feels amazing.  Yesterday after the post they showed us a new room and I was really undecided...
