Great Acts Are Made Up of Small Deeds

The majority of my day was spent cleaning and organizing my office. Right now, it’s in a state of disaster as I attempt to organize the clutter that’s currently my office. I actually managed to make a bit of dent, and the next few days will be spent clearing out the clutter that has amassed while cleaning. Sometimes you’ve got to make something messier to clean it, and that’s definitely where we are.

Shout out to Kim for coming to help today. It was nice to have the company that continued to motivate me. I don’t know how much I’d have ended up accomplishing without the company. Sometimes cleaning is also easier when you have someone helping or cleaning their own stuff1I miss the days of video blogging with my Jennfur. alongside you.

I am off to bed as I have a lot of stuff I need to accomplish at work today. The additional time off, while desperately needed, always ends up costing me with the additional work that I have when I return. Tomorrow, will be spent working on reports and then creating a PowerPoint for training I have planned in the middle of the week, centered on root cause analysis. That topic seems to be a struggle for many of our Team Leads so I figured up-training is warranted, and I have the consensus of the Senior Operations Manager.

Now I am off to get some much needed rest for what I imagine will be a very long day tomorrow. I mean, I could be wrong, but given the way the year has gone thus far, I’m not holding my breath.

Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These

The weekend, unfortunately for Kim1I feel terrible., consisted of me sleeping, A LOT. I woke up on Friday about 11:30 AM, with a stuffy nose and body aches. As a result, I slept the entire day. I felt like I had a fever, but we did not have a thermometer to verify. I woke up around 7:30 PM when Robby called so the kids could say goodnight.

After our phone call, I moved into the bedroom, where I scrolled through my Facebook news feed for a bit before I passed out. I was up and down all Friday night and ended up having to get up for meds because my back was killing me.

Saturday was much the same; instead, I was up around 9:00 AM before I ended up crashing around 10:30 AM – 11:00 AM. I was up and down, listening for Kim, who had gone upstairs to lay down.

Finally, around 3:30 PM, I sent her a text message stating I did not mean to sleep the day away as I had. We then decided that it would be best to head home tonight rather than stay another night and be stuck driving 2 hours house. The consensus between the two of us was it would be nice to have a full Sunday and not have to worry about packing and unpacking when we got home.

Despite my body insisting on sleep, I still had a good time and hope that we can do a bit more exploring the next time we’re up.

Road Tripping

I am currently on the road en route to Kim’s grandma’s cabin. In celebration of her birthday, we are spending the weekend up there. We had planned on leaving in the morning, but I figured why not head up tonight? I have scheduled PTO1Paid Time Off on Friday, so there’s really no reason for us to leave tonight instead of heading up in the morning.

Of course, I intended to blogging before we left, and I even thought about it doing it after Kim headed home to pack and get her dogs. She had given me an ETA of 9:30 PM but sent me a text an hour before asking if I had finished packing. I was nearly finished, but I knew I wouldn’t have the time to blog like I wanted to. I nearly forgot and remembered when I looked at the clock in Cliff2The name of Kim’s car, so now I am blogging via my phone.

I expect this weekend to be a relatively chill weekend with perhaps some exploring so we can both get our camera’s out. I hope the time away will allow me to recharge as I desperately need that. I’ve been operating on fumes for far too long, and it shows. My patience with the kids has been a hairline of late, and I hate that. I am usually the least likely to get frustrated with them, and that’s definitely not been the case of late. I know a large part of that has to do with work, so the additional time away, I hoping will do me some good.

It appears some of my post was eaten after I hit the submit button so I’ll try to continue with where I left off., though the chances of my remembering is slim.

We managed to make it up here in one piece, and after a bit of dog training, we’re all settled. The only plan for tomorrow is to head to Wal-Mart to stock up on food. While it’s NOT my ideal cabin, it is nice to have a Wal-Mart just up the road. It’s a lot less work when you don’t have to pack food or cooking items. Look at what society has made us into slaves to convenience.

I think I’ll leave it at that for tonight, and we’ll all see what tomorrow will bring. I’d be lying if I said it’s bound to be interesting; it’s really probably not.
