We were out of town over the weekend, attending a wedding (which I will post about next week) and got back Monday night, which meant hitting the floor running Tuesday morning.
Tuesday was filled with laundry and re-stocking groceries. I always let the grocery supply run low when we have a trip coming up, so we aren't spending money on things and then leaving. Which also means running to the store the day after we return, to get milk and whatever else we need. Whew! That took longer than expected because I was tricked by the grocery store!! Yep! HEB has a good thing going, but it's hectic on the shopper and on the margin of not being worth it.
You see, what they do is hang these sweet little green coupons next to a product and it usually says something like this:
"Buy one package of THIS, and get THAT free."
Which is all wonderful and good - except that the "FREE" item is sometimes on the other side of the store. Hmmmm. Strategery? I think so! (Quoting my man Bush there:)
So, when I'm doing a big shopping trip, where I'm going down all aisles, picking up specials along the way, I have to have a method of holding on to the coupons that require the across-store-pick-up, so I don't forget to get the free item. Sounds confusing and it's probably not worth all the effort. I only recommend going to this length for free items, if you have plenty of time to waste AND you are alone.
And THAT was only Tuesday!
Well, Wednesday I started a project of cleaning and reorganizing my office space (which is hilarious, if you really get down to it, considering it's actually just a corner of the living room, which is ridiculously small.)
BUT, it is what it is and it was a mess! So, all weekend I anticipated getting back and getting to work on this space, which is where I conduct much of my day. It was a project that I both longed to do and yet dreaded at the same time. As is the case with most of my "projects", one thing has to take place before the main thing can be done, and this one was no different.
Before I could start cleaning off the desk and cleaning out files, I had to go to the bedroom and clean out a closet that held all the scrapbook supplies I no longer use. Why? So I could utilize the plastic drawers that held the scrapbooks supplies, in the office area! Well, the closet clean out took about an hour, then I was able to start on the office space and I am just now done (today's FRIDAY, by the way!)
With school, church, life, supper, laundry, spending Collin's birthday money, etc., it has taken me 3 days to do one little area of this house (oh! and the closet)! If only there were THREE of me, I could really make some progress around here!
So, here I sit, blog posts burning a hole in my mind; desperate to be written, and since I've moved my computer to the opposite side of the L-shaped desk.........I've lost my ability to type! Seriously! How can the position of the computer make you stupid? I don't know, but somehow it has happened.
Maybe I'll get used to it. I also can't find my label maker (this is monumental) and don't know where I put my pens. I suspect this weekend will be spent reacquainting myself with all my office supplies.
So, there you have it.......life on the funny farm, as David calls it. I tend to agree.
I pray you know what today is all about....."Good Friday". How can it be good when it represents the day Jesus was hung on the cross? Because it's the day He gave his life, so we could live. It's the most precious day of giving, ever in the history of the world. My Lord and Savior volunteered to hang there, on that cross, so that I might live a life in relationship to God, my creator.
He hung, He died,
but the good news is.....
He's is risen, indeed,
and He's available!
I pray you know the power of the resurrection; the power of Christ risen from the dead. He is our hope, our future, our eternal promise. He is my all in all.
Happy Easter my friends!
