It will be the death of me!

Do I have some big 'L' stamped on my forehead??

How is it that there are those who can take advantage of my good/ quiet ways?

I seem to do the brunt of the work when with a certain someone at work, and she does not see it... I have to 'ask' her to get things done, she does not see it when I am doing it all.
It was such a long day keeping up with the work.... steady...... so tired.

I come home to find that my 21 year old is sitting on the couch.. tv on... her lap top on her 'lap. doing some work for her dad.. but the dishes are piled in the sink and the house is generally dirty.... I am exhausted.. I now have to make dinner...

do dishes

clean bathroom

pick up the livingroom

where is the help?

I must have a loser wish list going... and WHY can no one pick up after themselves???

I wish I could quit and walk away

Financial smanshial

This was in the Calgary Herald this morning:

OTTAWA — Finance Minister Jim Flaherty warned Tuesday the federal deficit for the current fiscal year could surpass the $50-billion mark.

Glad to see that all the households are struggling to make ends meet, I don't feel so alone anymore!

Empty Nest

I cannot believe that my little baby boy is graduating High School in 1 months time.

I have this feeling I'm going to be a blubbering mess when attending ceremonies.... not that it is any different than when Brianne graduated... but it is.

Come September both my kids will be gone away to school.
Jesse will only be an hour away, but no one will be at home. I will come home after work to an empty house...... everyday!

For the past 21 years and 4 months it has been all about the kids....... school and after school activities. I shopped with them in mind. We even rented movies with them in mind. Vacationed with them in mind. Everything was planned/ centered around them.

And now they will both be gone!

However on the bright side.... there will be less dishes to wash..... no shoes all over the front entry way...... the bathroom will stay cleaner...... I get a craft room this fall (THAT is exciting!!)
The grocery bill will be smaller....
but I'm going to miss all that :-(

...... but my very own craft/ scrapping room..... whoa... there IS something to be said for empty nest!

Get ready get set

Kay..... here I go......

I've never blogged before, never even read anyones' blog before today.

Do I have time in my busy life style to do this?
Why not.... I journal at night, perhaps I should join the high tech world of today and give up the pen and paper.

Me? Give up pen and paper.. never! It will never happen... they are my sword! Add funky paper, scissors, inks and stamps and I'm in heaven.
I suppose I need to have time first, then I will truly be in heaven.

So I welcome 'me' into this new world of blogging..... off I go!
