This is my life in a nut shell…

I don’t know but my days just keep getting shorter. I am so busy with work and things happening here at home. I love summer,  but I find that when I start new projects, there are just not enough hours in the day. If you remember, with the help of my SO, we replaced the kitchen floor with new tile. I decided I could replace the dining room carpet with tile also. How hard could it be? No glue to scrap off the floor. Just pull up the old carpet and start laying tile. Wrong ! After pulling up the carpet, I found that I had to fill in hole and cracks. After working for a whole afternoon, I had blisters on my blisters. I had to wait for the cement to dry, which left me waiting till I worked 4 more 12 hour shifts. I don’t know about the rest of you, but when I start something I want to finish it. If I have to wait, I have a hard time getting back to it. Well it’s about 80% done, thanks to my daughter coming over and getting me motivated. I am hoping to finish it up before heading back to work on Friday.

On another note.. My son, his girlfriend and my grandbaby are moving out. They were going to stay a few mos till they got an apartment, that turned into a year and a grandbaby later. Oh ya say now nice… she will have her house back. Well to be honest, my sister is now moving back in. I am good with this as she has now been sober for over a year, has a good job and can help with the rent ect. It works for both of us. I could make it on my own, but there would be no extra cash for the “I want things.” Sis is excited about moving in and it’s all good right now. The house is a mess what with my son moving out.. me trying to put in a new floor and sis will be moving in this week. Things are out of place and it drives me nuts. I just want some order in my life ! lol. We will get it all put back together soon. Now you know what has been keeping me so busssssssy ! I am counting the days till I leave the mess behind and head to Miami and Key West… 2 weeks off work and a little vacations !!! Can’t wait….

T stands for tired …


No funny stuff, no me doing something stupid, just the avg everyday post. I just finished working 50 hours in 4 days and  this is a good picture of how I am feeling…


Today I need to regroup and get ready to head back to work in a couple of days. I need to do laundry and clean up around here. All I want to do is nothing. My daughter called this morning and asked me to watch the kids. I know that I upset her by not jumping on it. I’m just tired. I work hard and I’m not all that young anymore. It’s not that I mind having the kids, I love them. I just needed some down time today.

I sound whiney huh, sorry, I promise it will be better after I get a little rest. Tomorrow I am going to Austin with a group that I work with. We really don’t have a plan, just a - get - away day ! One of the girls know the in’s and out’s of Austin, so it should be fun.

Time to pick myself up and get some things done….sigh.

Hope you all have a gr8 week.                  Simply_a tired me

Make a Plan

Little to post right now.. but coming soon I will be crowing ! A few days ago My OS and I got tickets to fly toooooooo…..2186573232_972341aa33  MIAMI ! 

 We are going to fly to Miami, spend the night , rent a car and drive to KEY WEST . I love Fl and have been there several times, but never to Miami or Key West. I am so looking forward to it. We won’t be going till Labor Day weekend. Which at this writing seems a long ways off. Hopefully there won’t be a hurricane at that time !

As a added surprise my Sis  gifted me with a month’s worth of free tanning. I can save it till August and be really to hit the beach. It’s actually nice to have something to look forward to. Day in and day out working , paying bills and just doing the same ole same ole gets depressing. So I say.. plan ahead and do something you really want to do. I know, money is a problem for most of us these days. I want to do this, I just have to manage my money better.

I SAY “I CAN DO THAT” !  No credit cards to pay off when I get back.  If I have to use credit, then I should stay home. This is no time to be owing anyone anything. So this makes getting up and working those 12 hour shifts worth it.

Now I have to get to sleep, cause 4:30 am comes early. Think I might dream of palm trees and white sand.. nite all !
