Springtime in the Northwest is a curious thing. Saturday and Sunday were beautiful days - warm, sunny - PERFECT! Today it is wet, cold and soooo windy!
I tried to have a less-busy weekend and I pretty much succeeded. Partly because my sister took my youngest daughter to the beach for the weekend. It was all well and good until their car broke down last night on the way home and they had to ride in a police car back to town to find a hotel. I had to drive over and pick them up this morning. My other daughter had a soccer game on Saturday (Go WILDCATS!!!). I did some laundry, scrubbed the bathrooms and went to visit my mom. Oh and I saw Remember Me at the second-run movie theater on Friday night. My fella cut the grass so I didn't have to do that. He has also been busy getting our garden ready for planting and taking care of the chickens. Yes, we have chickens even though we live in the city. It is a huge fad in Oregon. That and canning our own veggies. Yes, I do that too.
Yesterday I was sorting through some clothes and I tried on three pairs of size 20 pants. One was too big, one was too small and one pair of jeans went up and zipped, but gave me muffin top so I will wait a bit before wearing them. I also wore a XL top to church. I am sort of between sizes right now. My 22s are too big, but the
20s are too small. I am confident that they will fit great in a few weeks.
I wanted to thank you all for your suggestions on my co-worker post last week. I don't know why I neglected to say that this co-worker is my sister. So turning her into our boss isn't an option. We are both property managers and manage different properties, but a huge part of that job is being available when people come to the office or call and so that is the work that falls on me. I actually have talked to her about it several times and she always just laughs and says she's a flake. Really the problem is that she hates her job and has some family issues going on that she is having a hard time dealing with. So her "solution" is to stay in bed until noon every day and avoid work, housecleaning, doing her taxes and all of the other things she needs to do.
Well, I think that is about it. I am trying to get caught up on your posts in my few quiet moments today. Also I am going to schedule a fill for this week or next. I always want to put those off. I don't know why, but I'm going to make myself do it until I feel like I have perfect restriction because I suspect that my brain is trying to set me up to fail.
