Taking Care of Business

You know those pesky things, that just hang in the back of your mind, bugging you? Well, today I took care of a few of them. I called and scheduled someone to come and give me an estimate to do some gutter cleaning and repair. Not very exciting, but one of those maintenance things you need to do to prevent big headaches later. I also called and scheduled a consultant to come and give me an estimate to replace my hated tile counter tops in the kitchen with granite or something else. It's a free visit, and I won't know if this is something I can ever do or not unless I find out. I also called a former employer to have them resend me my retirement information. AND the best part was I updated my MP3 player to some new favorite workout music.
Makes me more anxious to get back to the gym!!
Six months until the cruise.

What a Week I'm Having

Started the week Easter Sunday, bringing my 2 grands back from a family gathering, to have 4 "sleepovers" while their parents had a getaway vacation. Ethan is 2 1/2 and big sister Jillian is 5 1/2. Sleeping all night is a challenge, and man was I sleep deprived by the time Thursday afternoon rolled around. Ended up now with Ethan's cold, that he willingly shared with me, along with lots of hugs and kisses, so I'm thinking it was worth it!
Had to give up two shifts of work though, as coughing and sneezing on laboring Mom's or newborns is not considered a "prudent" thing to do.
Got a haircut, went shorter than normal. Not ONE person I have seen since then has had any comment, so does this mean it was not the right choice of haircut for me - LOL!!
Pledging to become more active with the blog. Looking forward to seeing what develops - cough, cough, sniff.
