Why Nott Me: January 2007

"And this too shall pass.."
It's been ruff over the last week.
  • Last Thursday, I got the last hot shower, which was great, but I had a busy weekend coming up, so not the greatest timing...so Saturday it was replaced.. new one, 4" taller so it required some re-plumbing. It's a good thing my husband is handy with stuff like that!
  • Saturday, have I mentioned how much rain we've been getting? Our roof now offically has it's first ever least. Our house isn't even 12 yrs old yet!
  • Saturday, Our last pet of almost 13 years, Molly died, peacefully in her sleep. Can talk about this yet, still makes me cry. Probably because I'm tires, naw that 's not why.
  • Worked Saturday at the hospital 2-10:30...
  • Then Sunday, I went out of town for work for "book rush". Between Sunday thru Tuesday evening I put in 23 hours of overtime (Sunday was a 10.5 hr work day). Got back home on Tuesday evening just after 11, then got up Wednesday morning at 7:30am,, did I mention the time difference? and that I worked until 11pm on Monday? I have been very tired, hoping that I get rest this weekend. My next check will be very nice. It is what keeps me going.

So tomorrow is Friday and I'm thinking it's going to get better when I get some extra rest on Saturday... I've just kept praying...

On my walk today... the river to wet to get closer.
It was sleeting while I was out, very chilly walk.
Okay I admit it, I've not been a very good blogger lately. Between working a full time and a part time job, I've kept quite busy and my house work had fallen behind (which really bothers me).
And then a couple of weeks ago our dog, Molly had some kind of siezure or stroke. We took her to the vet, with meds it still took almost 3 days before we saw an improvement and she still isn't eating much. She needed to lose weight.. at this rate I'm worried she's loosing too much.
So I am going to make an effort to blog at least twice a month. So I hope you'll bear with me.
I'm looking forward to 2007, hoping that our year goes even better than 2006.

I thank God each day for our jobs, family and friends and know that he is with me thru all of our trials. There are many heartaches that we went thru with my step-daughter this last year and still I pray for her. That one day she will remember that we do love her and miss her. I also pray that her mother loses the bitterness that she harbors in her heart. And that being said, we can only pray and hope.

Okay it's New Years' Day and I'm going to get dress and go walking in the dreary gray that we have today!

Blessing to you all.
