Morning Meanderings… I Need A “Do-Over”


Happy Saturday ya’ all!

I hope the start of the New Year has been wonderful to you!  Over here, I think I am officially going to start the new year n the seventh. 

This week has been a blur pretty much from the 29th of December last Saturday when I worked seven hours on my day off and moving forward.  Every day I have had big commitments that I had to work towards and the new year here was merely a blur – a connection of one ay to another just like all the rest.

I admit…. I am a little saddened by that.

For years my tradition has been to post a book on January 1st that was one that I had been waiting to read and excited to review.  I think that traditions goes back to just after high school, long before I was blogging and back when I was writing book thoughts in journals (oh yeah… I still have them).  Sadly, I have not read one page yet this new year.  I pick a book up, and never get it opened.  The closest I have come to reading so far this year is when I fell asleep with a book on my lap, ready to read…. but not quite connecting eyes to page.


Ok, ha… not really like her…. more like in the recliner, all the way back with a blanket…. but you get the idea.  😛

So this morning I am off to set up for a 10 year anniversary party for tomorrow.  Then I need to  do some shopping for it, then I have to train someone in for IHN for tonight (still in our serving of the homeless week through tomorrow morning), and then I have my hubbies Christmas party for our company tonight.  (*insert smile here*)

Tomorrow I will be tearing down IHN at 5 am and then prepping the final touches on the 10 year party that will start at noon.  When all is said and done with that – after clean up, I am off the radar (work wise) until Wednesday.  😀

Seriously, I am not going to be such a downer…. good things are coming…. I just need to get there. 😀

Happy Saturday everyone!  😀  Read something for me 🙂

  1. That is how I as the week between Christmas and New Years! I had the same book on my bedside table and only got to page 90 all week. I was just so busy and when I did have down time, I crashed! lol January 2nd things started slowing down and I was able to get my first book of the year finished 😉

    Have a great weekend and downtime afterward!


  2. I know you thrive on this kind of schedule…but it would kill me…when I was teaching…and fighting for every precious alone moment…I yearned for down time…your schedule would literally slay me! Take care…I know you love alone time,too…you need to grab an entire day…just for you!

  3. My reading is at a crawl right now as well – there’s just too much going on. I’m hoping things will get back to normal soon – for both of us.

  4. As my mom always says, “Deep breath in and be sure to let it out!”. Hope things even out quickly for you.

  5. Yes, schedule yourself some “me” time for reading or whatever. If it’s in the schedule, you might just do it!~ lol

    Good luck!

  6. I’m glad you can look forward to some quiet days coming up.

  7. Perhaps you can start on the Chinese New Year? Isn’t that in a few weeks? Hope your year starts getting a bit better soon!

  8. Busy doesn’t mean bad… we look forward to you getting the first book review up. 🙂

    Sorry you haven’t gotten to read anything so far this year but at least you’ve gotten a lot accomplished elsewhere. Hope you can get some book time in soon. 🙂

  10. You are one busy lady! I have to admit, I can kind of relate. My life is in a state of mild (compared to yours! lol) chaos, and I was definitely not prepared for the new year when it came upon us, which is a bummer, because I was really looking forward to it. I think maybe I started mine today by cleaning all day like a maniac and reading a good chunk of The Hobbit, both things (cleaning and reading) I intended to do more of in the new year! Hope your life slows down soon and you can park yourself in a chair with a book, and, you know, actually read it. 😉

  11. I Love the graphic of the lady in the chair. So pretty!

  12. Hope the frantic schedule eases up soon, you’ll certainly enjoy ‘down’ time … when you get it 🙂
