Aaaaahhhhhhh....end of a week...

It is Friday. It has been a very, very busy week. Mostly, it was due to extending my hours at work, which I am definitely not complaining about, but it is something that just changed my routine. I think that I posted some about work earlier in the week - but quickly...I have a part-time job in a global company working in the Communications & Marketing department. "My boss" is in our Duxford, UK office; she was in town this week as we were starting a new/large project regarding our company's website, so we were interviewing webdesign companies. While here, she did my performance review from 2009 (which was wonderful) and we set my 2010 targets (lots of fun and exciting things to work on!). The meetings were wonderful, the review was great and, well, basically it was so nice to have someone to talk with all day (normally everyone stays in their office/cubicle or is travelling to all the other offices and it is quiet). But I do have to say that adding that extra hour or hour and a half does change my week...basically I was going from work right to picking up the kids and I am use to having that time to myself to either catch up on some household things or just to sit and stitch. But it was wonderful having "my boss" in town.

Last night we didn't have any hockey practice to deal with, so after I got home from work I did take some time to catch up on the grocery shopping and laundry. That always makes things see better. Also, DH and Robert (older son) are leaving this morning for a hockey tournament in I used the evening to get them organized and packed up. Yes...I was the one who got most of the things done for their travels...Yes, I know that they are capable of packing their own bags...Yes, but if I don't do it when I want to do it, then they decide to pack and organize when I want to relax and then it seems like the stress level rises 100% because something is missing that I have to instead of waiting until they are ready to tackle the packing, I go ahead and just do it! If they have anything to complain about, then I can say "you should have done your own packing."

I am looking forward to this 4 day weekend (Martin Luther King weekend)...the boys have Monday off of school as it is a US holiday. So, today I will have the house to myself, as I do with my typical Fridays off and then Monday it will be Matthew (younger son) and I...until the other two come home Monday evening. So I see a lot of relaxing, stitching and hockey in our plans here at home! I hope to have some stitching stuff to show you at the end of the weekend!

Have a good day and remember....Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often! Lisa
