Starting to pay off?
Wednesday, July 18, 2012      4 comments

I survived the first day back at work. The kids were all happy to see me and it was nice to get back into things, but I don't know, my heart just wasn't in it. Maybe because I had a sub with me today who didn't know the kids. She's usually wi... Read more
Back on track

Not that I was completely off track, but I think I'm getting my mojo back. I went grocery shopping and did pretty good, if I do say so myself. My husband asked for candy and pop for himself. I gotand cantaloupe and a few bottles of fitn... Read more

I have about an hour left on the boat and then an hour drive to get home. My husband is ready for me to be back and I'm ready to get back to my routine. I really hated leaving Michigan and wonder if I'd return to Wisconsin if my cats weren't t... Read more
The End
Sunday, July 15, 2012      4 comments

As my trip draws to an end I feel differently than I have every other time I've been home. I've always felt ready to leave to get back to my routine. This time I feel like I'm leaving the one place I belong. I don't want to leave and go back ... Read more
Time to unwind

A very busy day. My husband arrived at the motel about 6:30 this morning so I let him sleep for awhile. From there we met up with my parents for lunch. My husband and I then went to the beach to walk to the lighthouse. I wanted to swim, but ... Read more
Friday the 13th

Not a bad day, even for being Friday the 13th. Made it to Michigan in one piece. The ride on the boat was a bit boring. I always play bingo, but never win. Didn't win today either, but that's normal. They had signs up giving allergy informa... Read more

The in-law's were only here long enough to get the mattresses reorganized so that was good. Marie walks in and immediately says we need to talk and when we were alone she let me know why I need this job and how she knows what I want and blah bl... Read more

After spending all day at work, including a 2 1/2 hour staff meeting, I call my husband to let him know I was on my way home. He informs me that his mom is getting some lady she knows to put a good word in for me for the job she wants me to hav... Read more

OMG! My flippin' MIL is rewriting my resume, making stuff up she doesn't understand, and even made me a new email account. She doesn't like me using my old one because it has my maiden name and thinks it would be confusing to prospective emplo... Read more
And so it begins....

So apparently there is no guarantee that my husband has an actual job. He's currently getting paid through a third party - a hiring firm I guess. The next two weeks are full time for training. Then he is part time with no guarantee of employm... Read more
Getting back to normal

Things are starting to return to normal. Cleo is back acting like nothing happened, even trying to get out when I brought the groceries in. My husband starts his new job on Monday and is having a bit of a problem letting go of his time off. ... Read more
Cleo's Adventure
Friday, July 06, 2012      6 comments

Cleo is back home safe and sound, with a microchip. Apparently my husband opened our sliding glass door without making sure the screen was closed tight. Cleo got out and caught in a storm and a neighbor from the apartment building next to us f... Read more
Where are you?!

I am freaking out. I haven't seen my Cleo since last night. I sometimes don't see her in the morning before I leave for work, but I didn't see her when I was home on my break and I've searched for an hour and still can't find her. The other c... Read more
Happy 4th of July
Wednesday, July 04, 2012      3 comments

Not the day I wanted, but a good day still. Slept in later than I expected and had to make an emergency run to the store to get paper towels. Decided to use my George Foreman to cook the brats because walking outside is like walking into... Read more
Lemonade out of lemons
Tuesday, July 03, 2012      8 comments

Since I feel bad that my husband can't have the 4th of July he wanted I decided to give him his own. I stopped at the store on my way home from work and got the bratwurst he likes, even though I normally won't eat them. I got turkey ones so I ... Read more
