Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to All of My Followers!

I am thankful for all of you who follow me and read my posts. I am thankful for the likes and comments on my blog. I am thankful that I got today off, and that I was able to go my Aunt’s a couple of hours away, to spend time with family. I am thankful for nice weather. I am thankful that I was able to come last night so that I could avoid all the horrible traffic on the drive. I am thankful for awesome food. I am thankful for my job, and a roof over my head. I am thankful that my dog has a roof over his head. I am thankful for clean and fresh water. I am thankful for a supportive family and church family. I am thankful for my friends. I am greatly blessed!

So now I have something to say that kind of struck me funny. I was sitting in the living room playing Wizard 101 on my computer. For those of you that don’t know, this is an internet role playing game. My cousin A, also plays this and while she’s not here at the moment, we were playing together. Most of the conversation going on here is going on in the kitchen right now. I was kind of overhearing some of it and was thinking, “adult conversation is so boring sometimes.” Then I had to stop myself and realize, “I’m an adult now, I can’t say that anymore. ” It sure is hard to grow up sometimes!

Well I hope all of you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving day!

Love & Peace

Balancing Act

For all of my working adult years, I have been trying to figure out the balancing act. When I work 40 hours a week, I am exhausted! I don’t understand how people can work 40 hours a week, and get anything else done. I come home from work and all I want to do, is sit down to my latest show and relax. I don’t have the energy to do anything else. Doing cleaning on my days off is the best, as far as when I get things done. The idea of working 40 hours a week for the rest of my life is SO overwhelming! I don’t know how people work and go to school full-time plus have children. I would go crazy!

I am living with my aunt and uncle and do 10 hours of cleaning for them, for room and board. Now that I have a job I go to work and come home, to cleaning. These next two weeks are overwhelmingly busy, and I’m trying to figure out how I am going to get anything at home done. I was going to do some things tonight but after work and then a counseling appointment, I just wanted to sit down, so did. Now I have Thursday and Friday to get 9 more hours of stuff done and don’t have the faintest clue on how to do it. Next week is also going to be hectic and so I don’t know what is going to happen there either. Then on top of that, I owe 6 hours for some hours I missed a few times a couple months ago. This is all so overwhelming that I don’t know how to tackle it.

So how do people balance everything out and not be so totally exhausted? Or are they exhausted and they do it anyway? I don’t like being so tired all the time. I want to be able to enjoy my life and my time. So how do I do that, and survive???

Any thoughts are great!

Love & Peace

Writing Prompt: To Wyatt

Someone or something you can’t communicate with through writing (a baby, a pet, an object) can understand every single word you write today, for one day only. What do you tell them?  http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/literate-today/

I would write my post to my dog Wyatt. This is what it would say…

Dear Wyatt,
How are things going? Things are going OK here. I miss you so very much. I have been thinking about you a lot lately. I have been picturing when we were together and the walks we went for. The snuggles at night. The times when I was sad and you would comfort me with your kisses. I miss your soft fur, your warmth and yes even your barks. I miss the times you made me laugh into hysterics, because of your funny antics. I JUST MISS YOU!

I am sorry that we can’t be together right now. I’m sorry that I lost my job and you had to go live somewhere else. In the long run, loosing the job was a good thing as now I have a much better job. This job will eventually help me get a better place, in a safe neighborhood. Then you can finally come back to live with me. I am already in a safer neighborhood, now I just need to save some money up, so that I can get my own place. I’m sorry that my aunt and uncle aren’t animal people so you can’t be here with me now. If you were here with me, time would go so much faster.

Another thing  I am considering when you come back to me, is getting you a cat. The fact that you got along with Elijah so well, and are now getting along with L&J’s pets, I think a cat would be really good for you again. You need to have some company while I’m gone at work during the day. I think a cat would be good for you and that you would be a lot happier with a friend. Please keep this in mind, as I don’t want you to think I am replacing you or pushing you out or anything. This would solely be for your benefit.

It may still be awhile before we can be together as I need to save some money. I am praying that maybe God has something in plan sooner, but the facts are that I’m not sure what those options would be, with where my finances are. I get my first full paycheck soon and then I can get my bills back on track. Then next month I can hopefully start putting money into the bank.

I want you to know that I am doing my best to get you back soon. All I can do right now is my best and as long as I’m doing that, I’m doing good.

I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH!

Please be patient and hang on. You will be back with me in the near future!

Love Your Mommy!
