It WAS the weekend

I can't believe its Sunday evening and I will be heading back to work tomorrow. But, it does tend to go fast when you do nothing much all weekend. Friday, I came home a bit early with horrible cramps, but felt OK enough by noon on Saturday to go to a home show, shop a bit at Michaels crafts and Lane Bryant, and have dinner at Outback Steakhouse. However, by night, I had horrible sinus pain and couldn't breathe.
So, here I am again, fighting a cold. I really think I should have made sure I got a flu shot, but I just didn't think of it when they were making the announcements. Two years ago, I was the healthiest and that was when I had the shot. Sometimes, being around sick high schoolers can make it worse.

This week will probably fly by because I have deadlines at work, a visit with L on Tuesday (who is doing better but still weak. . .more on her after I see her), and nothing much planned till Super Bowl Sunday. Since the Steelers are in it, a friend is having a party but I am pretty sure Keith and I will stay here. For one, I may need to get to bed since I work a long day on Monday. And for two, Keith would rather watch the game here AND our TV is bigger than the one our friend has. For the biggest game of the year (for my hubby) that means he would rather be at home.

On an entirely different note, I am going to be an aunt again. My sister-in-law from CA is pregnant after a long and trying time to get there. I am very happy for her and Jeff cause I know how much they have wanted to start a family. It is fun being an aunt. . .I just wish they lived closer to us.
Well, I am off to take more cold meds, and get ready for a work week. I know I need to get myself writing more, its just a bit hard to think about what to share somedays. . . .

Taking it one thing at a time

So, I have a busy week ahead. I have planning a banquet (small one--27 people) at a local restaurant, have tickets to see a play (Miss Saigon) on Saturday, AFTER I attend a meeting for Relay for Life with 2 people from work. In there, Keith and I also will be attending a blessing for my mother and Bill which means by the Catholic church since they can now be married by the church. Sunday, the Steelers are playing so there will be some get together of the friends circle, and then Monday its back to work both at day and at night. Hm. Maybe I felt sick today because of all I have coming up.

Whatever it was, I was home today feeling under the weather with stomach issues. Enough said, and I feel much better now.

I know things have been boring here, but I am not sure what things I want to discuss so far. And, it is still getting used to blogging again that is part of it. I know there are things to discuss, issues to voice opinions on, and life to report on, but for now, I am taking my days one at a time.

Friday. . .the 13th

Today would have been my grandfather's birthday. He has been gone for 3 years this month, but I still expect to see him when I go and visit my grandmother's home. It has not been easy for my Mom and her sisters since they have had to have care for my gram 24/7 since he died. They have daytime caretakers that she pays for, but at night, each of them takes a night or two to sleep there, and weekends are all theirs as well. My mom finally had enough mentally for many reasons, and stopped going on a regular basis (plus they travel to see my niece and nephew and brothers) so it was tough for her. Supposedly my gram is on an assisted living waiting list, but no one knows when there might be a place. It has been tough. And I know first hand cause I did help for a while but I really thought it was temporary and my schedule with 2 jobs just got to be too much.

Anyway, the computer is updated. I am happy about that, cause now we can use safari, can get rid of dial up at home, and things are working better.

Tomorrow is a day of errands, and I guess football for hubby in the evening. Notice, once again, not too much going on here in my life, but thanks to all who stopped in or emailed to let me know you got my message about the change. I do like having a place to "write and sort things out".

Day two

I really need to get my imac updated with OSX, and use either safari or netscape on it. I can't even get to my own blog when
I am using IE since it isn't as compatible with macs as is used to be.
OK, so things are a bit boring around my life right now. I am currently trying to get grades done for semester end this week, plan a small banquet for Junior Woman's, and recover from the upper respitory infection. I am still coughing and have sinus issues, but I do feel better. Last night, a killer headache hit, though, but sleep and a cold cloth on my forehead helped. . I never really thought it would work, but after Keith brought me one, the headache did subside.
It's Wednesday, its January. There isn't much going on. But it is day two of my new home.

I have missed blogging

Even though I had been neglecting my blog, I have missed it, so I am back again. I just decided to go with blogger and all the issues that come. I really don't have major complaints yet, and although I may be spoiled by having my "own" domain, I can live with this as long as it gives me a voice.
