On my mind

I feel so overwhelmed right now. Here's my brain dump ...

  • Started the new job on Monday, it rocks. I love it, I love the people. I'm so much happier. But a new job means starting from square one all over again. There's so much to learn!
  • We are headed to Disney World in 15 days. What?! I seriously don't have this planned well enough. I think I've delayed planning simply because the girls still don't know we are going. I mean really, 2 weeks and we are on a plane. I need to get my shit together. I can't go into this unprepared.
  • With all the school cancellations from our terrible winter, the school district has implemented e-learning. The elementary kids have to spend 5 hours a week at home to make up for 1 missed day. We have 5 days to make up :( I'm not prepared to be a teacher, this is hard. I'm glad I only have to worry about first grade assignments and that I don't have a senior and no clue what is going on!
  • Since I have more time at home now, I feel like I need to be doing more with my house. Normally laundry and cleaning get pushed to the weekends. And usually the dishes pile up. I'm trying to work out a nice routine so that my weekends are no longer eaten up by laundry and cleaning. Maybe it's just too early to work something out. Give me another couple weeks of working so much closer to home and maybe I can figure this out. Or maybe helping A with e-learning will just suck up all my extra time!
  • We had J's 4th birthday on Saturday. I need to upload images for everyone to see who couldn't come to the party. I did pretty good for about 8 months last year of sharing photos on Shutterfly but the last part of the year and into this year, I've done a terrible job. I don't even want to know when my last upload was. It's a good thing I talk to my dad regularly or he'd be begging for photos.
  • I'm excited to be participating in my first blog swap! It's for nail polish. I got paired up with another blogger to swap nail polish. I'm excited to get shopping and to see what I get in the mail as well. Yay for little surprises!
  • A result from training at the new job means less time at the computer. I'm so far behind on blog reading. I miss the distraction. This is the first chance I've had to sit down and even think about writing my own blog post. I only did it to hopefully clear my head a little bit, thus the jumbled mess you are painfully reading through #sorry
  • My new female co-workers invited me to a wine tasting party Friday night. I couldn't tell you the last time I went out. Now to pick and bottle and find a dish to share with everyone. Oh the pressure!
  • If you made it this far, congratulations. I feel I owe you something for that. My brain and my to-do list are completely overloaded right now. I promise the next post won't be so rambley (I'm sure that's a word) and might even include a picture or two.
So tell me, what's on your mind?


  1. Your new job sounds awesome! A wine tasting party? Heck ya! Have fun at Disney, we are hoping to go back NEXT summer...we just went last summer. e-learning, seriously??

  2. Yay for new jobs that make us happy! So glad you found a job closer to home so you can spend more time with A & J. Once life settles down, and you get back from Disney (jealous), we need to do lunch in Fort Wayne. The options seem endless compared to Berne. =)

  3. Oh you must take lots of pictures of Disney to share with all of us! Have a blast!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I really do appreciate every one I get!
