Week 43, Maybe?


This not having a reliable computer thing is throwing me off my game.

Let's see....

I turned 49. Hubs and I went to breakfast, then to the outlet mall to start the Christmas shopping. Later we went to my parents for a family dinner. It was nice, small, and yummy. And while it is just a number, all subsequent birthdays will be celebrated as 49 and a bit.

I had one last day on my old mail route. I picked up many envelopes and treats along the way.  And while I knew this was the right move for me, it is truly bittersweet. Although I have seen many of them in Walmart, as promised. The new carrier is great and ironically grew up on the route I went to. It will just take some getting used to for everyone.

I started the new route the next day in torrential downpours. It's been 4 days now and it's almost exactly the way I want it to be set up. A few small tweaks next month and it will be all set for Holiday. I am struggling with balancing the house stuff since I'm working a longer day, but it will all work out in the end. The Libra in me is off balance right now and I just have to keep reminding myself that that's okay. I'm sure once the paycheck starts, I will feel better. Nothing worse than working harder and not seeing progress. This time of year is always tough for me regardless. First, it's my birthday, then Oldest's in two weeks, then we roll right into Thanksgiving and before we can blink, Christmas. 

But before I get too ahead of myself, I should go switch over the laundry.

Because while I may need everything else to slow down just a bit, the laundry never does.


  1. Happy birthday hope it was a good day, yeah we slow down but laundry goes on and on

  2. Happy belated birthday. Christmas? I am so ready not to think about that. And have a load (one of several) in at the moment.

  3. Happy birthday! You're as old as my son will be come November!
    Yes, laundry never slows down. Neither does dust and dishes. LOL! ;)

  4. Happy Birthday, Juli! No, laundry stops for no one.

    Sounds like your family is like mine...the birthdays start at the end of September and just keep coming rolling right into Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's an expensive time of year, that's for sure.

  5. You're so young. I have to worry about signing up for Medicare. I am elderly. Happy Birthday, Gorgeous Juli!



Go ahead, you know you want to...

If you Give A Girl....

 If you give a girl a brand new trainee the week of Christmas, she'll probably think her boss was crazy. When she tells you to give her ...
