Waking up full of joy on a Monday. It’s Martin Luther King’s Day and I’m off. It’s cold outside and I have no plans to go anywhere. However, the joy of being home in my pj’s with my cup of coffee is priceless. I don’t need to do much of the chores, because I already did it on Friday and Saturday. I only want to rearrange a few things around the house so it looks fresh. My weekend went great with my two youngest grandbabies staying the night. It was a sleepover at grandma’s house. We watched the movie “Hotel Transylvania: Transformania” the fourth movie. It wasn’t my favorite; however, my little ones enjoyed the movie.
The joy of spending quality time with my grandbabies gives me a good start to the week.

After a rough week being sick, I’m up and ready to finish what I’ve started. However, let me clarify I didn’t stay home because of being sick. I went to work wearing my mask all day. I’ve to be up by 4:00 am and ready to go by 5:20 am. At the end of the workday at 1:30 pm when back home directly to bed without doing anything else. I’ve been exhausted from working and sick at the same time.
On Friday, I was feeling much better and went to work as normal. However, I wasn’t counting on this. The day before we got 10 inches of snow so after I got to work, they announced the schools from our district would have a 2-hour late start. Okay, not too bad. I was in school already and classes would begin at 10. No breakfast for the kiddos so I did my bookwork, my food orders for the week, and the inventory for the week. I was ahead of my work. At 8:30, I got an alert on my phone that school was canceled because of the road conditions. Really? Why the school district didn’t decide it earlier?
The roads were awful. It was hard to get out of the parking lot. And guess what happened next. I got stuck on the road almost got into a ditch. I’ve to call my husband. It took almost half an hour to get my vehicle out of the snow. I got home safely after all the hazards.
What a morning? Nope, I didn’t go back to bed. Instead, I’ve been cleaning the house. The rest of my Friday and all-day Saturday, but it’s done.
It feels good to be home. Here it is a ridiculous day in my life especially when I began to feel better. On the positive thought, I’m ahead on my paperwork from work and have all my chores caught up.
It’s time to relax and enjoy my day reading.
My first week of the year has been a tempest week. I have the worse flu can someone have. I already missed two days of work. I’m tired of being in bed, not being able to eat, and my body feels like breaking into pieces. I wasn’t expecting to be this sick.
Then we are experiencing winter storms and frigid temperatures. These past couple of days were the coldest with a temperature of -23 and with the windshield feeling like -41. I went yesterday to the doctor’s office and it was a miserable ride. Icy roads, cold and windy you got the picture. A long drive. As soon I went back home, I put on my pajamas and went back to bed.
Have a great weekend and I’m out again.

It’s Sunday morning and I’m trying to figure out what is gobbledygook. I’ve never heard this word before so I’ve to google it. When I read the definition, I made an awe expression on my face. My granddaughter who was getting juice smiled and ask what’s going on. I asked her if she ever heard of the word gobbledygook. She also made an awe expression; however, she did say its sounds like a turkey talking to another turkey. We both laugh and my granddaughter says here to gobbledygook that I still don’t know what it is. My morning started with a wonderful laugh.
Thank you so much, Dan, for making me laugh with my granddaughter. Now, gobbledygook would be a word that we both will remember for a long time.

I gave up on resolutions because year after year I’ve failed and quickly. I’ve decided for this year to switch my resolution into a word of the year. After weeks of thinking about which word would fit my needs, I decided on the word “FOCUS”. I need to apply focus to my life. I’ve been all over the place starting projects and not finishing them. I’ve been making excuses for not having time for anything and being lazy. Also, forgetting to take my meds or drink more water.
I want to prioritize my health, my mental wellness, and focus on my family and home. So, in the midst of all things, I’ll be tracking my commitments on my planner so I can stay focused on my challenge.
Wishing everyone in 2022, filled with love, laughter, and health.
I was up early this morning; My husband and I cooked for the family. When the kids arrived and saw the presents under the tree they were smiling. We opened presents and everyone was happy. We had an amazing and blessing day!
We played games, watch The Polar Express and Santa Clause movies, and ate too much.
Everyone went home tired and happy. It’s time for us, to relax and watch more movies. My plans for tomorrow sleep at least until 10 am. Stay in my pajamas all day and relax.
May you have the spirit of Christmas, which is peace the gladness of Christmas, which is hope, and the heart of Christmas which is love.
