Thursday's List...sort of

Wow it has been a whirlwind of activity going on in my corner of the world lately...
Where to start?
Boston was good...nice to get out of town...even if it seemed slightly silly at the time....the hockey game was fun..who knew that it was such a big game...not me...but it was fun..
Got back from there and settled into my new desk at work...lots of changes going on there...still to be determined if they are going to work themselves out..well they will..one way or another I suppose..
I got an A in my last class....so that's exciting...only three classes left...June 20th can't get here soon enough..
The weekend was great....my nephew played hockey...we spent hours making centerpieces for this weekend...pinewood derby and lots of snuggle time....leave it to the kids to always put a smile on my face.
Lots of work this week and little progress made towards my goal for the month...but here's hoping that when the full moon goes away the crazies will go back into hiding for a month..
It was warm today...almost 45 degrees....it was nice going outside at lunch time...
We are headed back up north for the weekend...nephew's blue and gold dinner for boy scouts and I am hoping some movie time with the kids while the boys watch the Daytona 500 on Sunday...
Monday I have the whole day off.  I have a paper due Monday night but I am definitely scheduling some sleep in time...a pedicure and maybe even a massage.  
A family member of mine is making some really bad choices and I have refused to get involved...I feel like I should but they are her choices to make....her kids are safe at the moment...but I am watching the situation....I really want to smack some sense into her...but that's won't do any good...hopefully she comes to her senses soon.
I know that some of you have some stuff going on...sending out hugs to you all and hoping that things get better real soon...for everyone....


  1. Nothing worse then having to stand by and watch family make bad decisions. I hope that she begins to make better choices.
    Congrats on your A !!!

  2. Sometimes we just have to stand back and watch them make wrong decisions. I know from experience how hard that can be.

    I love BOSTON! Can't wait to visit again!! Hopefully next week!! Chowda Time Baby! ;)

  3. You have been so busy so I think a pedicure and a massage are definitely called for. You are such a sweetheart. Those kids are all so lucky! Sorry to here about your family situation. Hope it all works out.

  4. I hope the person mentioned in your post will make the right decisions...and enjoy your long weekend.

  5. Sounds like you have been busy and I agree with Barb, I think a pedicure and a massage will do you good. So difficult, standing back and watching. I hope it all works out too.
