Workin’ for the Weekend

Ahhhhhhhhh.  The big W has finally arrived.  This plays thru my head as I write this post.  Cheesy 80s music is still pretty good music, but the title of the song fits perfectly for the weekend ahead of me.

As you may recall reading my last post, I worked all last weekend.  I accumulated 61 hours this week towards my paycheck.  Nice for the pocketbook, crappy for everyday things like cooking, bathing children, and laundry to name a few.

The speed of things domino-ing and changing at work was fast and for most of those working hours I was on my feet.  The next three weeks I will be faced with more work than usual.  This is hurting my hobby!

To tried to cook everyday, I raise my hand!  Cooking did not happen every night, but no one went hungry.  Laundry was lumped into the machine as I left everyday and/or the very last thing I did before I went to bed.  Some dishes got done, but I only touched the dishsoap to wash my hands.  Thank you mr reliable 24 year old dishwasher!  And thank you little 7 year old hands for helping mommy with chores.

Today’s agenda was supposed to be of the Jelly Roll Racing nature.  THAT did not happen as the schedule would not permit another activity that will happen for someone else in the household concerning Keto dieting.  My two bosses have been very successful with this diet.  50 lbs in 2 1/2 months….the holiday months at that.  So, I deem that pretty important for the household.

I have been reading of the benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar.  Lowers cholesterol….that is certainly worth a try.  Not sure about the taste thing, but I recently saw on Shark tank there are now wonderful tasting versions of this.  I will get back to you about the cholesterol thing.

My goal of having a side done of my last border on good fortune just did not happen.  No stitches of any kind happened since last Sat.  I aim to longarm this weekend weather permitting.  A post about good fortune will be posted on Monday for the linkup.  Sorry blog you suffer greatly from the raise in working job hours.


What’s that?  I think I hear Abacus (my so named machine because I can really count on him) calling my name!

  1. As one who works 6 days a week, and has little time or energy for anything else, I really sympathize with you! Family time, and me time, is so, so precious! Have fun with your quilting! 🙂
