Almost TGIF

TGIF is sounding awfully sweet to me.  It has been a very long time since I couldn't wait for Friday to get here.  Not that it's been a bad week.  I just have no time for anything and need to start getting some sort of schedule for myself.  I really only get home a little over an hour earlier.  The day does go fast at work but I can't seem to find any extra time to accomplish anything around the house.  I'm whooped...lol.  That's probably why.  I don't have time to get through my mailbox, read journals, make an entry, and right now I'm too tired for PSP.  I'm sure this is what would be referred to as an adjustment period.

And....I have to prepare and iron my clothes every night.  It's fun to get semi dressed up again but there is some maintenance and time to be put into it.  My old job...throw on a pair of jeans, top, blazer and off I could go.  Oy vay, I've never ironed so much in years.

Yikes and today is Megan's 20th b-day.  I did call and sing to her when I realized it was today.  She was off at the mall buying perfume which she said I could pay for as a gift.  Ok....sounds good to me.

My familyroom is the only clean room in the house.  Megan did clean that today, bless her, but wants to have some friends over after a wedding they are going to Sat. night. and asked if I was cleaning the rest of the downstairs.  I suppose I will have to bite the bullet this Saturday and do the downstairs really well and threaten those two kids of mine with bodily harm if they mess it up.  Actually, I didn't tell her but I had been planning on doing that any way.

My bedroom is tiny.  I took the smallest and let Joey and Megan have the bigger ones.  I pulled all my clothes out to sort through and toss those I don't want and wash and iron the others.  One problem...I got halfway done last night.  I couldn't even get into my bed.  I filled another bag tonight for Goodwill and washed another load and ironed them.  Now about 1/3 of my bed is showing.  Major stress attack setting in.  I do love to sleep on the couch for some reason so it's no big deal except I can't stand the mess upthere.

                          

My junk mail is falling off the snack bar because that is usually my Wed chore.  It's only 8:30 and the bathtub is calling me.  I still have to iron my clothes for tomorrow.

My PC has been moved finally at work.  I still have all my old commands. IT never got around to setting up my computer for all the new systems I need.  Figures.  I moved some things down but there's still a mess of crap around my new area that no one has moved.  A mess at work; a mess at home...                    

My solution tonight is take a nice long bath, iron my clothes and go to bed.  Hopefully, I will be more alert and refreshed come Saturday.  Am I working OT....HECK NO...lol

HUGS to all....tomorrow night is my journal reading night.  I'm working on the siggy tags.  I've gotten almost half done....please be patient with me.  A good 8 hr snooze should do the trick.

It's always tough the first few weeks.  Mine starts this Monday. So you'll be a week ahead of me.  Everything seems new and it's not easy anymore. Gotta actually THINK about each activity I do at work.  UGH.  They've scheduled me for a bunch of exams and classes next week.  I haven't asked what happens if I don't pass the tests.  I don't want to think about that!
Take it easy tomorrow....then you can sleep the weekend.  And thanks so much for the name tag!  I love it!

Wow Chris.....You make me so tired just reading about you life!  Sounds like things are going great at the new job, right?  I'm proud of you!  HEY!  Yesterday, June 8th was MY Amy's 19th birthday!  Our daughters are exactly a year apart!  How very cool is THAT!!!  Good luck with getting the downstairs done on Saturday!  You can do it!  I know you can!  And then just rest, rest, rest the weekend away!
Love, Linda

What you`re feeling reminds me so much how I felt when I was working 8-5 Mon thru Fri. I was beat by the time I got home and the evenings were never long enough, esp as i went to bed early too. I know you`re missing that Wed. off. TGIF has new meaning, huh?? :)
Happy B-day to Megan!\
Hugs,
Pen
