A night at home

The plate of responsiblity...of committment...never is empty, but there are just levels of fullness.

Today I went back to work, to my part-time job, after being off for 2 weeks in order to deal with all the hockey committments of the boys and all the changes to going from 1 to 2 family *stores*. When people came by my desk to say "welcome back" and ask "how was your vacation...what did you do?" It was hard to respond, for my so called "vacation" was not restful or relaxing; but by lessening my plate by one committment, my part-time job, it was easier to tolerate life. Now, while I add back in my job we are down one hockey clinic...the one in the evening, which means quiet evenings at home. Thus, we have a good balance of life again, something to definitely enjoy while we have it :)

Before going to my part-time job this morning, I got up at 4:30am in order to run into *store #1* to dip over 250 strawberries in chocolate. We received a wonderfully large order from an orthodontist office for chocolate dipped strawberry boxes for different employees who have been very supportive of whatever they have been dealing with. The person who was going to distribute all the boxes was coming in at 8am to pick them up, so they needed to be done and boxed before then. I was done at at my desk by 8am, so I didn't get an opportunity to meet the person who placed the order.

Well, the boys are eating dinner - fixed them spaghetti w/meatballs - and I am getting in an evening spin on my stationary bike...too hot to run this afternoon and still too warm tonight. I hope to get up early tomorrow and get in an early morning run.

Anyway, after I get in my spin, I will sit my behind down on the sofa and get in some more stitches on Family Sampler. I have been working on that a little bit each evening lately. I will try to get a photo posted of its status.

That is about all right now. Hope everyone out there is doing well! Until next time, remember...

Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!
