Monday New Month

I did get up and worked my job for a couple hours. Yay! The job has been real slow. They have had software problems to little work on the projects. About all I can talk about without getting into trouble. 🙂 I hope it picks back up regularly because I like this project. Want that money too! 🙂

Now, I am kicking myself for not starting the work earlier. My time to accomplish all other tasks is almost done for the day, because I watch the granddaughter at about 3 pm. I tend to do that more and more since I don’t have a job outside of the house. I procrastinate more because I know I can do it later, maybe.

I love working at home when it works out. The key is time management. I like to put off things like deep cleaning and organizing and go for the fun stuff. 🙂 Like playing with the granddaughter and hanging out with the kids.

Our last one is graduating this year it’s getting real on being an empty nest. Though the kids move back here and there when things are rough and we have no problem with that. We have basic rules of pay YOUR bills, pay off bills, and NO opposite sex stays the night! I think that last one gets them to eventually move out! Win win. 🙂 We are not a sex house! LOL

Off to eat something. Have a fabulous day! 🙂

Summer is for Relaxing

I did the boys’ school enrollment today. Where did the summer go? We were not even busy. It has been a relaxing summer. The way it should be.

I remember growing up being involved in softball but the rest of the summer was being with friends and family. No crazy schedule. I went to one camp every summer for a week, dance camp. I can not fathom how the parents today put their kids in every thing they can during the summer. Which to each their own, not saying it’s wrong, but I think kids should have a relaxing summer. Because before long, they will be in the grown-up world of no more summers off, unless your job allows it. 🙂

I don’t even push a summer job unless they want it. I like the freedom of not having so many separate schedules to work with when we want to do stuff as a family. Now, come their last year of high school, I will definitely push a job so they can get ready for the workforce. To me, you are a kid once! As crazy as school years can get I think summer downtime is a must. Gives them a break. So much goes on in school nowadays. Perhaps that is why kids are stressed to the max. Maybe.

I do know once a child gets out on their own, they tend to not want mom and dad around as much. If yours does, you are one lucky family.  🙂

I also want my kids to enjoy their twenty’s. I feel this way because I had my first kid at 19 almost 20, by one month.  LOL.  I don’t regret because it did help me to grow up, but I missed out on all the young fun.

There are positives and negatives to every age you have kids. One positive to having kids young, I am a young grandma! 🙂 I can always have those fun moments in my 50s, the new 20! LOL

The best part is I can ask my kids if they want to go! I don’t have to worry about being a good influence anymore! LOL

Happy day to you all! 🙂

Updated The Blog

Decided the blog needed a new look.  🙂

A work in progress, but so far I am liking it.

It has been a hot last few weeks around here. Today we are finally getting some good rain. I hope it cools things down. Our grass is starting to turn brown.  😦

Oh, the A/C is running nonstop lately even with it on 80 degrees!

All the flowers I planted are done and gone. I do not have a green thumb. I am sure I will keep trying though.  LOL

I have not read or wrote lately. I had goals this summer to get a lot done there. Darn it. I have had some fun with the family so that is ok.

I did start a new part-time job working at home. I have been enjoying that. I am still figuring out the schedule. When you can do it anytime during the day that makes for chaos at times.

I am a HUGE procrastinator!

Not a good combo when you want to get things done. A calendar and list helps but still too easy to put things off. The only thing I hate about the new job is having to take care of the self-employment taxes.

Ugh.

I’m not sure how long it will last. I’m a ‘independent consultant’, so no definite time frame. I work for a data company so whenever the business that hired them is done with us then the job is done. Or I do crappy.  😦  But so far so good. 🙂

I believe once school starts again it will be a bit easier. Right now, too easy to lay in bed or sleep in.  LOL

I am enjoying while I can is my theory.

Welp, I need to get to work! Good thing I don’t have to go too far. 🙂 Ah the perks.

Have a great weekend!

Cleaning Thy Toilet

Most dreaded job to me.

I’d rather eat liver.

And I really hate liver.

No sooner it is sparkly

Someone destroys the shine.

I swear no appreciation

Not even for a day.
