This week I have felt unbalanced. I am not sure why. I haven’t felt motivated or creative either. Maybe lack of sleep and no Sunday nap is to blame. I can say, and J will vouch for me, I have not been crabby!
Thursday morning J got up earlier than usual because he went to the big city with his Dad for supplies. I ended up getting out of bed a little early too. I just know you are wondering “What did R do with her extra 10-15 minutes”. I got dressed like normal. After looking at my shirt I didn’t think it was appropriate for work and changed it. I almost NEVER change clothes after I get dressed for work.
I finished getting ready then sat down to check my e-mail and post my Thankful Thursday blog post. J and I were talking and I spilled my coffee concoction (cappuccino) all over my lap. Yes, my mug has a lid on it and it was secure. Again, I almost NEVER spill; as long as I am not in a moving vehicle. UHG!
So, back to the closet for a pair of pants. I saw that I got a drop of coffee on my shirt, no big deal to me. Well, I had on a white polo shirt. I thought I better get some Spray N Wash on the spot and changed my shirt again. To be honest I NEVER wear solid white shirts. The last time I did I was either on the Livestock Judging team or showing cattle at the County Fair. A white shirt was required dress code at the County Fair.
The good news is no sticky liquid got on my keyboard! I got two loads of pants washed and vacuumed all before 7:10 am. J sprayed for bugs the other day and it was time to suck up all the dead crickets in the basement. I also vacuumed the kitchen and bathroom. Booth rooms are linoleum, but I find that vacuuming linoleum is easier than a broom and dustpan.
I will say that amongst my feelings of unbalance I have been flexible. I tend to be a creature of routine and this week I have happily embraced variety! Wednesday J and I went to a retirement supper in town. I came home from work for a few hours and went back into town with J. Two trips to town in one day is not my cup of tea. But, who am I to turn down time with J and a steak supper? We had a nice evening.
Thursday J’s Mom spontaneously hosted the CFEL Club Picnic. Oh what to take to a potluck on short notice. Upon looking into a somewhat empty refrigerator …. my cowboy suggested I toss together a fresh fruit salad. Thank you Hubby for helping me keep it simple!
Tonight we are on the road again. We are going over to a neighbor’s place to help a 4-Her with her steer project.
In conclusion, I have not had a bad week. I just have not felt like my energetic self. I am sure I will kick it up this weekend. They say a body in motion stays in motion and on the weekends I tend to buzz around like a busy bee! I think a nap sounds good too.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Good Luck to those exhibiting at the Buffalo County Fair! (The County Fair I grew up showing at.)
