Now for My Week At a Glance;
Nice way to begin a week by honoring MOMS!
But do we really need a day to do that?
Moms are who they are cuz they can't help it. I know I can't. The love, time, care, sacrifice, etc that I give to my kids just comes naturally. I think it is just something God puts in a woman while she is expecting that grows and grows as time goes by. So, although it's wonderful to have a least one day a year when moms are thanked, I know that this mom would do what she does anyway. (yea, and sometimes complain about it).
My kids "thanked" me with phone calls and a dinner. My oldest gave me a little book where she wrote notes to me reminiscing of times gone by. She wants this to be something I can read when I am missing her. It has a permanent place in my purse, as I'll need to be looking at it a lot :)
Last year I got involved in mystery shops. This is when a company hires me to go into a place of business and evaluate certain aspects of it undercover! OOOOO....so spy-like. Seeing that I am a critical person, well, maybe that is a bit harsh. Let's just say that I usually see the "bad" first. I do enjoy doing this. So far I have spied on banks, convenience stores, cell phone retailers, movie theaters, hardware stores, and others.
Out of this came a job being a greeting card merchandiser in a chain store. I am the one who has to organize and order the cards on a bi-monthly basis.
This week this store had a major renovation. My card rack was downsized from 19 feet to 15 feet, so I had to go in and reset the whole 15 foot display.
I am an organizer, so I was actually looking forward to this job. Let's just say I'm glad that I don't have to do this every day. I'm glad I am able to be a SAHM (stay at home mom). I was on my feet for 6 hours straight. Can you say, "ouch, my poor feet?" But it is done and it looks good!
While checking my emails this week I found a request from a company asking me to do a review.
The very first time I've been sought out. Hooray!!! That was quite a boost. This blogging stuff is very time consuming, I love it or I wouldn't bother, but sometimes I wonder what I'm doing. This certainly was a morale booster!
We had 2 absolutely gorgeous days in a row! Fabulous! I just had to be outside most of the time. I was able to accomplish all the inside work in record time. Incentives sure do motivate :)
The first day I worked in the flower garden. Doesn't look like I did much, but what I did looks great!
Here's a wild flower bush my mom and I transplanted a couple years ago. All weeded and mulched.
The 2nd sunny day I helped my son with his firewood bundles by splitting the chunks of wood. Boy, was it hot out....not complaining AT ALL. I love it!
