Time……none extra in my days…..

I keep wanting to do a post but unless it’s near midnight I don’t have the time but tonight I am going to take the time because I miss you guys. I am going to “steal” an idea from Angela from Keeping the Faith and use her format for an update. 

Minutes – July 26th, 2015 12:00 am

  • my summer job and a great boss that knows I need time for my parents and is willing to work with me and really I work with them too since they have ailing parents too.
  • a understanding husband. He knows that just cuz I have a day off doesn’t mean I have a day off. He’s doing laundry most of the time, he lets me sleep in on days I can, he fixes dinner on Sunday nights, he laughs when I get that 10:00 call at night because either mama or daddy have misplaced something or they are worried about something.
  • a wonderful son that wants to still be with his mama.
  • parents that are trying their hardest to still be as independent as possible.
:: Prayerful
  • for patience cuz at times they get pretty thin and it’s not any ones fault that life hard.
  • friends that listen and care and offer help.
  • for my grandma that always makes sure I know I’m appreciated.
:: Excited
  • for school to start and a regular schedule again
  • for the extra hours at work to keep up on the bills of two households
:: Health
  • the loss of a few pounds and a DOT physical appointment
:: Fun
  • Camping. Only once so far this summer but another one planned and maybe even two.
:: Delicious
  • pork roast for the crockpot
  • fresh fish
  • cold salad
  • 5 12 hour days at work, not sure yet
:: This week
  • a 52 hour week between managing mini golf, driving special needs and the hospital courier plus a shopping trip and 5 hours of mowing lawn.
And pictures:

Blessings my dear friends!!!

I honestly don't know how you do it, Julie. You amaze me. I'm glad you're surviving, I'm glad that Jim is helping you out, I'm glad you're able to be there for your parents.

Just keep swimming, as my favorite blue fish says. Take care, Julie. Don't forget to come up for a breather every once in a while.

Oh Julie - I am just so pleased to have read your post. I do keep popping over to see if you've posted and YES you have. It is so nice to hear from you and catch up on news.

I love all your photo's ... and yes indeed pork roast for the crockpot, fresh fish, cold salad all sound great to me.

Take Care and God Bless

All the best Jan

Love you much, and am praying for you daily.

What a great idea! I'm not looking forward to school starting back one little bit. If I didn't already agree (sign my contract) I wouldn't bother. LOL

Hope your Christmas-time has been peaceful.
All good wishes for 2016.
