Sippin’ coffee here and wishing you all a good weekend. There is nothing like getting to sleep in on a Saturday morning. Instead of the 4 a.m. hour it’s more like 7! Trying to make up for missed sleep during the week. And a busy week it was.
Let’s review it: Work all day and the commute has gotten longer. It’s now 45 min and upwards to over an hour at times. I think road work might be to blame for part of it and just an increase in traffic volume in the last month. More working?
Monday – 5:20 doc appt for BP Rx renewal, Tuesday – Predators game (they won!), Wednesday – PM wind storms and stayed up late til passed, Thursday – Nails appointment, Friday – Publix Grocery night for Sonya (my 2 week stock up for work items). So the week was gone in a blink and I think I might have been tired.
SAVING SOME TIME
So I think me going to the store after work helps me a lot on time. I can casually walk through, look at labels, not be rushed and I have increased my buying level to cover what I might need in two weeks time (aside from any fresh stuff, which I just have George get as he goes the store a couple times of week). I used to go to the store at least once a week. But since our trip to Hot Springs, it seems I can lengthen it for two weeks. I also am back to doing a Target order about once every month or two. I order what I can through there for household goods, makeup, laundry, toiletries, etc. Also I supplement with Amazon for vitamins and some other personal items if I’m not doing a Target order yet. This gives me about 2 to 3 hours a month, it’s not much time savings but every little bit helps. I can get a lot done in 2-3 hours. But I’m losing it with the increase in commute. ::sigh:: Life is always trying to either suck your money or your time – don’t worry – I’m not getting started!!!! lol. (Some of you know me too well.)
ANOTHER WEIRD DREAM
I had another dream last night. This time I went on a shopping weekend out of town with a friend. We had our own cars though for some reason and so on Saturday morning I drove on to a shopping location leaving the friend behind to get there on her own. We had not discussed which shopping location though (it’s a dream and it’s weird). I was going to call her to tell her where to go. But then I couldn’t find my phone. I didn’t know her number to call from anyone else’s phone. I felt helpless and sat inside someone’s boat which was located at the mall. (I have no idea why I wasn’t sitting in my own car. lol. Well if you are going to sit in someone else’s vehicle and you see a boat instead, why not sit there?) I stepped away from the boat only for a second to check out something and came back and thieves were stealing things from the boat and asked me if they were my things and I said “no I’m just sitting here”. I don’t know why I wasn’t scared. I guess because I’d been watching Good Girls. lol. The thieves decided not to take the goods. The owner came back to the boat and I explained my dilemma about my lost phone and my now lost friend since I couldn’t reach her and he tried to help me but I didn’t have anyone’s number and didn’t know who to call. But he let me hang on the boat. At the end of the day I decided I’d go back to the hotel because that is the only place that I knew my friend and I would ever meet up. But by then I’d lost most of the items in my purse and didn’t have keys, didn’t know where my car was and seemed to be collecting all sorts of things that didn’t belong to me as everyone was putting things in my purse to carry for everyone else. At the end of the dream there was a big party which had a show in which Rod Stewart was the singer and he gave away gifts, including marijuana as the state had recently legalized it, and everyone was smoking and passing it around (NOT ME!) and my friend was there and someone called my phone number and my phone was buried deep within my purse and there the whole time. And things started showing up again in my purse. Yeah there’s a lot of holes in that dream. And Rod Stewart, really? But weird dreams anyway. My fear is that I will lose my purse and phone and thinking about it yesterday because I had those other dreams, made me dream about it again. I had recently read about legalizing marijuana being prompted in a law and I guess that is where that came from. I care nothing about it but it would be nice to try CBD product and medicinal items without having to worry about any type of drug screen. As some have given people a positive drug test. Anyway interesting dream for sure.
So I have quite the To Do list. I won’t get all finished. I never do so most of these will carry through April until I can get to them. <Pause> I have to go get some more coffee!!
- Give George my cell phone check (work pays us to allow people to call us on our personal cell phones – a blessing)
- Make sure Little Bit has water/food
- Have my photo ready in my iPhone to show the hairstylist.
- Find my pink jacket – it’s missing – in George’s car? My car? Work?
- Pick a recipe to fix for next week to give George a break while he does yard work or music work
- Check out the Wilson County voting lineup and do research on the candidates as early voting is starting soon
- Move the bed in my office to downstairs. (I’ve broken it up but need George to help me to put it downstairs).
- Set up my puzzle
- Iron for next week and pick out clothes for the work week
- Set up my BP meds and vitamin supplements for the next week in my weekly container
- Start cleaning and opening up the sun room
- Order Pics from Shutterfly. (I have two pics I have put off ordering since Christmas if not before).
- Windows clean – that has been on my list for a long time
- Work on next video
- Learn to go Gifs in Final Cut
- Measure my table in the sun room and try to find a similar one for Mom
- Shop for her cabinet for her laundry room
- Camera Lessons – need to do another lesson or two
- Basement – Help clean and get rid of things in the basement
That is what I intend on doing today but like I said, it’s just going to snowball on throughout April and I have things scheduled that will pop up on my iPhone Reminder app as well. Mom also needs more help unpacking and Good willing, and we might work that in tomorrow after church and lunch out and AT&T store, if she can hold out without having her nap. But she will probably be too tired and we’ll have to schedule a Saturday. If we do that, I’ll be claiming Sunday as my home day and will do a devo there. I can’t give all of my personal time away as that is where the trouble starts when I’m left with only tired evenings or half a day to get a week’s worth of stuff done. I’m having to claim some time back this year. We are about a year behind on everything.
MEANWHILE in TEXAS
Momma sent Little Roo a Mickey Mouse when she heard he loved to watch Mickey on the TV. Katy said he was soooooo excited to see that Mickey was in his house! Then he asked to have Smokey the bear that we bought him in Hot Springs. So he played with them in his ball pit.
What are ya’ll doing this weekend? Whatever you do enjoy it!
