Quick Full Week

It has been a long week, yet it also felt like it flew.

I got notification Monday afternoon about getting the new job. That put me in "nesting" mode. You know, like the way you feel right before giving birth. You start thinking about all the stuff you wont have time to take care of when the baby arrives, so you start cleaning, running the errands, getting "prepared".

I keep thinking, 8-4:30 Monday through Friday.

No more sleeping in after sending Annie to school. So I went back to bed and slept in nearly every day.

I read a book. Front to back. Jodi Picoult's "Handle with Care". Great story, had me engrossed through the entire story. I hated the end! It pissed me off. I do recommend it. Picoult writes so well. It was really good.

I tried to go through Blogworld and catch up on everyone. I got sad thinking that I will not be able to spend as much time with this addiction. Interestingly, a fellow blogger had recently posted about time management with her blog and how she needed to spend more time with her real world and was torn. I completely understood. The advice she got will help me as well. I am going to try to cut down to every other day. I just have to manage my time better!

Monday, Annie & I went to the AT&T store and got new phones. I got a great deal on the LG Vu. Two phones for $160 and we will get two $50 rebates in the mail. Don't you hate how instead of taking the "rebate" off they mail it back to you in credit card form? Anyway, the girls needed new phones and it fits in an Easter basket!

I went to Muncie on Tuesday, had dinner with my Emily, and picked up her kitten. I brought Isabella (the kitten) home with me. I then took her Wednesday to be spayed. I have been babying her all week. Again,Happy Easter Em. She is so grateful that I took care of this.

I had some real estate business to take care of. Time consuming but necessary.

Had some financial business to attend to. Again, necessary. Anxious for the better pay checks to start!

I "tried" to get housework in order. I can never seem to get caught up. How will I when I am working 40 hours a week? Maybe, the family will chip in better.

I worked at the "old" job Thursday evening. I had planned to also work Friday, but the called me in to tell me they were not busy, so stop by with the id badge but don't plan on working. That ticked me off. I didn't get to say goodbye. I decided to wait till next week and turn in the badge when my pay check is ready. We can trade then. Snots.

Last night, Sergio asked me how to start a blog. I jumped at the opportunity to help him! We created a nice blog for him. It is:
"The Patriot".

It will be an interesting read I think. He is very interesting (although stubborn and opinionated at times). I am curious to see where he goes with this. He has started it with stories of his past. He is Mexican and growing up here in the sixties & seventies was difficult at times. He was born in Monterrey Mexico, but his Mother returned to the states shortly after his birth. (that's right she was already living in Detroit and went to her homeland to have her son. Sergio was three months old when he traveled to America.)
My husband has a leadership position within the International UAW. He is a powerful man and I am very proud of his accomplishments. He is political. I am curious to see if he goes "there". I hope you venture over and check his blog.

Well, today is Saturday. Emily is home for the Easter Holiday. Annie is home, but shortly has to go to work. I am going to go for now, and spend some time with this lovely family of mine.

Love to you all.

Enjoy your Easter weekend home with the girls and Sergio. I enjoyed watching mine yesterday paint eggs and we also made and Easter cake. Don't fret about the job, you may find that you actually get more done and are more organized the more you have to do, weird, but sometimes true. Hope you enjoy deb.

Hi Janis. You will definitely have to farm out your chores. Don't you dare try to keep up with everything. I know. I did that and resented the fact that everybody had time off on weekends except me. I had spoiled them; keeping up super mom routines. Do what you enjoy when you come home; let others do their part.

Happy Easter.

Happy Easter Janis! I like what your friend Deb said, you'll get so good at budgeting your time, everything will get done that you want.
Enjoy your family night!
