Finally, some alone time!

My hubster came back from Michigan last week and promptly ended up in the hospital for a couple of days. Still don’t know what caused the pain, but it is an off again on again thing that the doc. can’t seem to pin down. After he got home we had two days of “lovie dovie” and now it is “We need to pair down and clean things out!” Today, however, he went with his narcissistic friend for the day to N. Dakota. I can heave a sigh of relief so I can do what I want to do, not what he demands. This includes some meditation and relaxation. HAZZAH!!!!! Just not looking forward to his coming home with his friends ideas filling his head and personality.

What was I/were they thinking!

Last Thurs. I ordered a day bed frame, a mattress and bedding. One would think that would be the order they would arrive …. NOT! I got the bedding Tues. the Mattress today and I am not going to get the bed (which I need by Friday) until next week since we don’t have Saturday deliveries. One would think it would come either on the same day or in the order of frame then mattress then bedding. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!!!

Observations about men in general! (Or how two type A personalities can drive each other nuts!)

I have just gotten off the phone from my hubster. He has been wanting to come home ever since his childhood friend asked him to come out. Now they are finally getting ready to come home … sort of.
My husband is fastidious when it comes to cleaning and getting things done right. On the first his friend is far worse about that. Neither like a dirty place nor a cluttered one. HOWEVER, his friend was suppose to finish the kitchen floor seven years ago, when hubby arrived it was still in the same state as he left it seven years ago. This guy is an engineer an instead of measuring twice and getting it done he is constantly measuring and changing things. They were suppose to leave yesterday and then this morning to come home.  My husband said that the guy not only is not packed but he hasn’t showered after cleaning the house (again!) Now being clean is a good thing, but this is ridiculous. I have a feeling they won’t be leaving until tomorrow, if then … I wish him luck!

Celebrate Good Times Come on!

Just finished my last full day at the summer job and as I was leaving the parking lot I sang the celebration song. 67 people and 90% of that streaming through the museum during the last couple hours. By the time I got home I was wrung out and shaking. I still have to go back on Tues to help lock up, but there will only be the workers, no customers filing through.

Now on Weds. I start working on the baskets for 3 hours a day.  It will be a relief to have my alone time again. My goal is 5 baskets by December. More if it works out.

Plans for my days away from my job…

At last! Tomorrow is my last full day then I am sudo free until next year. Weds. I am going into my studio and really crack down on my basket weaving.  I actually downloaded a book that shows (and explains) what you need for the Nantucket baskets.  I am planning to order a couple of forms and some bases for the baskets next month so I can actually work on them! For me I find the larger baskets easier to work with than the smaller ones.

I know that my husband is bringing his childhood friend back for a (gasp!) two week visit.  We also have a bet going. I say he won’t last three days, my husband said a week, Winner gets their dinner (anything they want) made for them.  If it is longer, then not only is the bet null and void, but we take him to dinner to celebrate.

Just wish tomorrow was over with. I really didn’t want to work there, I wanted to get the tubs moved to the trailer and start decorating for Autumn!

Alone at last!

Well, hubster is gone for the next couple of weeks so (except for when I am working) I actually have some time for myself. I am taking today to relax since I work the next two days.  Saturday I am working on the lawn and going through the clothes in my closet.  I even have some time for meditation and some of my other pursuits which I had to put on hold. Who was it who deemed it that a woman could only pursue the life of a wife/mother and only have time for the whims of others yet not for herself?  I think they caused more problems for women than we needed.

As summer closes

It seems that this season summer has gone by too quickly and yet slower than molasses!  I have not enjoyed working this year.  It has become very stressful and I would rather not be around people as much as the museum requires.  I have become less enamored with people as the years pass by.  I just came back from the doctor who has switched out my meds for something which he says should help a bit more.  I hope it helps, but I hold no expectations and only hope for some improvement.  I find that I look forward to labor day more because I can actually start concentrating on my baskets and other crafts which I hope to perfect and eventually sell. With the weather lately, I would love to see some autumn coolness, colors and smells filling the air.  It will be a form of inspiration in a way!

I am sure that the term “best laid plans … ” will come into play as we finish off the last few weeks of summer. My plans are as follows, 1. working on the baskets 2. doing paperwork (IE any catch up I may or may not need to do) 3. go through my clothes and getting rid of those which I don’t need or want. 4. go through all the food stuffs which are outdated and I can not eat.  5. general crafts and clean up.

Well, there is the update for the summer.  Hope you all are doing great and thank you for following my posts.
