Back in the saddle again

One word...ugh! This morning was back to business as usual with school being back in session. Let me tell you, I argued long and hard with my alarm clock and it won! I got my body clock all out of whack over the Break and ended up irritated with myself at 12:30 am when I STILL wasn't asleep, only to be even more irritated when the stupid alarm rang at 5:30! Needless to say I spent much of the day trying to remember to be "perky" to be in keeping with this family-friendly office environment I'm trying to work on since so many people were complaining about me. (Now, in my defense, the 5 or so complaints came from people who would have complained if Perfect Patty was in the office. They didn't like that I was asking them to follow county policy and complained to county office to be buttheads!! Not because I was "bad" to them!) Anyhow, I'm so perky and friendly now, I irritate the fool out of myself! But ah, well, thems the grapes. Actually I don't think that the correct phrase, but I can't come up with it just now. So there you go.

I also had the unfortunate problem of being gassy for some reason today. I think it was all the black beans I ate over the Break (don't ask. I got a hankering for a corn/black bean salad the technology teacher made one time and so I made some!) Anyhow, I was extremely uncomfortable all day being that the bathroom I use is right off the staff workroom and since the workroom was busy all day, and I'm quite private by nature, I wasn't really comfortable, er, working off the gas. However, now that I'm home things are feeling better. Hee hee.

Tomorrow Jeanmarie will be out which means probably a pretty sucky day for me! Blech!

Thanksgiving Break

I've been sooooo looking forward to this Break. Then it got here. I knew I didn't feel well at work on Friday and when I got home...temperature of 100.4! Kenny went to a get together and told everyone that I was home with a 104 degree temperature! When he came home he was all "let's take your temp and then take you to the hospital" because everyone there told him that 104 was pretty high. They must have thought he was the worst hubby ever to have gone to a party and leaving me home sick! Got a good laugh out of that.

I've been between 99.5 and 100.7 ever since. Called today for an appointment and they were booked up until tomorrow morning. I'm sure I'll be all better by then!

Kenny and the kids have been upstairs (we live in my in-laws' basement) helping them get the house ready for my brother-in-law Rick, his wife, Mendy and their family, who are heading here from Oklahoma for Thanksgiving. They are repainting, caulking, moving furniture, and cleaning to beat the band. Luckily, I've been able to escape that and a lot of the kids fighting and horseplay because I've been bedbound.

I thought it was strep because of how bad my throat ached, but with my stomach and bottom issues, I'm thinking it's more of a stomach virus! Nice timing!

My daughter with her chorus picture. Love the eyebrow!

So much for blogging

Meagan's class is blogging ( each week. I thought "I ought to blog" and came to put together a blog spot, forgetting that I already created one. How sorry is that?

So what's happening now? Hmmm, guess I should have checked what was happening in my last blog! Wow...batting 1000. Well, what am I doing NOW? In 20 minutes I have to be at church to eat dinner and direct children's choir. I keep asking myself how in the world I managed to get myself roped into doing children's choir again...then I think of Meagan and Jo not have the opportunity to do it like Kenny and Lorie did and how can I say no? But am I putting the time into that I should? Well, no, not if I'm being honest. But then that's how I kind of slide through life, unfortunately. When I grow up, I'm going to do things on time and with great passion. Of course, I'm 38, so I guess this is as grown up as I"m going to get.

Money is an issue. We just suck at budgetting and handling our money. Sometimes it truly bites to be an adult.
