Did I bite off more than I can chew???

October 19th, 2008 at 04:14 pm


I have been so incredibly busy lately. I am attending school- taking my first class in 30 years (English Comp)...and loving it!! I am also taking an online course (Computing Concepts)- but am struggling to keep up with that one.

I am trying to fill my assistant's position at previous assistant left unexpectedly Friday and so I will be doing double duty and trying to interview this next week. ugh.

I joined a wine class that meets once each month- There are 14 of us in the class and we meet at the coordinators (RJ's) restaurant. Each month, we taste a different wine and RJ makes dishes that pairs with the wine. He also educates us on the history of the wine. Our first class was a couple of weeks ago...and I sure enjoyed it! We will meet for 10 months and then next summer, we will go on a two day trip to a local wine region.

The past two weekends have been weekends away with friends... one to the beach with the girls, and the other with another couple to a local resort. Great, relaxing fun...that doesn't happen near enough. It was coincidence that they happend one after the other.

Grandbaby #5 is due in 6 weeks...but DD2 is on semi-bedrest as her body is ready to deliver what is looking to be a good sized baby girl. (The baby's dad was 13 lbs at birth and is now 6' 6" and very large framed.)

Nana was struggling with several issues, so we made a list and she got busy.....she now has joined a red hat society, gotten cortisone shots for her back, got hearing aids, and is going to counseling!! (yeah Nana!)

Today is my first full day at home in weeks...and GS (age 4) spent the night last night and we made waffles this morning.

I have a ton of housework to catch up on...and I have homework for both of my courses.

It seems like financially, we just keeping getting hit with one unexpected expense after another. We also got DD3 (16) a car...which adds gas, insurance, etc. to the budget.

All in all...things are great. Busy, but full of good stuff. I do read many of your blogs as often as I can...
