hello
I'm sitting her for a minute
Violet is getting into everything lately
I caught her standing up on the piano keys today trying to grab something off the top of the piano!

Joe called to say one of the girls at work called him to say her paycheck is about half of what it should be
I looked at her time cards and the pay stubs and it looks right to me
this girl is always trying to say her pay check is wrong and she drives me crazy
she can't remember which weeks are included in the pay periods
we pay on Friday for the 2 prior weeks--not that week
so our pay on the 28th was from the 10-23rd
and she never gets that right

I hope Violet takes a good nap
I have to make an apple crisp for dessert tonight at my Mom's
and do some work-work
and some house-work
and wrap Andrew's dream lite puppy and find 3 AAA batteries for it
and get the kids to make cards
a birthday card for Andrew (Audra's doing it now)
ad a thank you card for Nina (Mia's doing it now)
we've all showered but I haven't brushed anyone's hair or done my makeup

I think you are definitely suffering from anxiety

I personally think you should drop something and give yourself some more time to just be and not be doing everything all the time
**************************************
& doing everything for everyone else & not having time for herself?
it's a tough balancing act?
Jenn, dy feel you have a hard time saying no to people?
(some people do & sometimes I do, given the situation)
if so, maybe you can work on saying no to things you truly don't want to do & not feeling guilty over it?
(for example, i sometimes have trouble w/this & i'm on a committee at Graham's school where we bring in food/treats/cups/plates etc. for meals for the teachrs. Last week was a week they did that for the two long days they had for p/t conf. You should feel ok to say no if you can't commit as there are several people on the "team". It was busy, I elected not participate this time. They needed people & I almost succumbed to making MY life extra difficult for them to not be in a pinch. I got several emails but didn't give in....I just didn't have time to cook a big meal (all the stuff that was left) & get it there in their time frame. I do feel bad but I had to remind myself that it had to work for me too....i shouldn't (& they don't) expect myself to contribute to every function. (they have several all year long) I really had to talk to myself though as normally i'd be "oh no, they're in a bind....who cares if I'm killing myself, I will help!" Not that those things are bad qualities at all, but sometimes you have to take care of YOU first before you can give to others)

Well if it is something I really don't want to do - I have no issue saying no

Like if they ask me to work extra at the restaurant - unless it is a good friend who I know will help me out when I am in in a bind - then I almost always say no

But with the stuff for the kids - I do want to do it and enjoy it - kwim?

A lot tof the things that are on the docket this week were things I volunteered for a while ago - not yet knowing the timeframe, etc.

And it just happened the the book fair is the same week as curriculum night, girlss cout meeting week, the nut/candy sale training, and the encampment meeting ... no way to know that was going to happen - kwim?

I'm going to likely skip the encampment meeting tomorrow night and also see if another brownie leader wants to take my place on that committee

I am feeling pretty good today

I slept until 8am (which is late, lol)

We got up and went to church and stayed for donuts afterward for breakfast

Then we got home and I did some cleaning I had been putting off - dishes, and cleaned up the kitchen, did the bathroom, rant he vacuum around the house and steam mopped

Then I made the girls lunch and they stayed home with Joe and I went to the grocery store and did that so I won't have to try and fit it in tomorrow

Put it away - made lunch for myself and have just been chilling ever since
