Conundrum

I had decided on this post title earlier this morning, then all heck broke loose!  Now, it’s evening and I’m sitting at the computer to write my post.  I have no idea what my conundrum was.  Yes, I’ve had several “squirrel” moments today.  Now, I’m exhausted

We put my niece on the plane last night back to Las Vegas.  I am going to miss her.  There were a few times she displayed the teenage ‘tude, but it didn’t last long.  She is a young woman that has been through alot.  As I told my sister, last night, via a text message, “She’s a good kid with a free spirit that needs alot of guidance.”   But it isn’t just guidance, it’s also the delivery of that guidance.

We had dinner at Carinos with her friend, then we let them wander around the outdoor mall until it was time to leave for the airport.  Prior to that we stopped at my friend’s house, so my niece could say goodbye to her girls.  When we got back into the car, my niece opened the card she was given and I laughed.  It was one of those talking cards and there were two voices letting her know that they weren’t going to let her go, etc.  It was pretty cool!   Even though my niece probably won’t admit it, I think the card made a big impression on her!  Thanks to my friend, you are the bestest!!

I have no idea what has happened to the time.  It’s been busy and crazy, but I don’t know why.  I just know we are closing in on the middle of August.  Wow, I’m not sure I’m happy about zooming to another birthday!

It has been a great week, although a busy one.  The staff was treated to a mandatory offsite fun outing.  We went to Reno for an Ace’s baseball game.  It was alot of fun!!  We lost, but we really won as far as getting to know each other a little more.  Unfortunately with being gone on a workday, it meant having to get the work accomplished in a shorter amount of time.  But truth be told, I wouldn’t trade!  I had a great time and look forward to the next one, whenever and where ever that may be.  I love my job!!

Hubby’s out watering the grass.  We’ve pretty much trades places this year on the yardwork.  My sciatic nerve has caused a great pain in both of our back sides.  But he’s doing a great job out there, mowing, weeding & watering.  My sciatic nerve still gets irritated, however, I now have a sleep number bed (thanks to one of my new co-workers) that has really helped relieve the pressure, while sleeping.  Now I only have a problem when I sit too long.  Although getting out of Red is a challenge also.   

I didn’t have to work at the lake this weekend, which was a huge blessing.  There were things that came up today, that needed to be worked out and taken care of and if I had to worry about working at the lake also, I’d be a crazier woman than I already am.   Unless something comes up tomorrow, I’m going to take it easy.  Plus Sha Na Na is playing a free concert in the parking lot of the casino across the street.  Hey, you can’t beat free!!  There’s also free cake being served between 3 & 4pm and 8 & 9pm.  Have I mentioned how much I love cake?!?!?   Well, that’s the plan anyway … but you know me … my plans change ALL the time.

    Niece is blessed to have an auntie who understands and supports her. She’s an amazing and talented young woman. So precious and beautiful.
    We’re all getting old and forgetful. This has been a crazy week. I feel like I’m a year older than last year on this day. Have a wonderful Sunday, Trixie. ….. ? Huh? Oh, wait, is this Trixie’s blog? No? Um, where am I? hehehe!!!
