I have lived a great life the past 1yr and 3 mon. since walking away from full-time employment. I was able to say 'yes' to a lot of people needing an extra hand......something I did little of for too many years.
Things have changed a bit for me again. I have started a part-time job, about 16 hrs. a week. A friend has parents who live at home but are in need of some extra help because of dementia. She asked me if I would be interested in helping out. You bet I would.....even if it makes me feel busy again! So I have added this to my week besides keeping Aidan and Zoe 2-3 times a week and helping Marcy with appointments as I can. And I need to be going through our stuff in preparation of a move in the next year.
Yup, I'm going and going.....
This going calls for some increased organization, something I have been less bothered with ;) I will be going to this couple's home today so I made a pot of soup in my crock-pot for dinner. I used the Italian Sausage Minestrone recipe in the latest issue of Taste of Home. I didn't have some of the ingredients so I subbed with others.....not sure what it is but it's soup! Smells good!
I also did a load of laundry which is ready to be folded.....I want to do that before I go. Anyway, as I was putting the load into the dryer I was looking for a pair of my jeans that I hang to dry. Didn't find them so I figured I decided not to wash them....oh well, will get them another time. As I sat down to write this post, I looked at my legs and........realized I didn't wash them because I WAS WEARING THEM!!!!!!! oh.my.word.
Will miss my favorite show tonight...The Biggest Loser. Because, we will be going to look at 2 homes tonight if Kim (our daughter Real Estate Agent) was able to schedule the homes. Exciting!
Have a great day! I know I will =)
