I have tried to be somewhat clever in my posts, not sure if I reached that goal, but I tried. Unfortunately I find that because of this there are alot of times when I have "blog writers block". I was sitting here thinking of something witty and charming to write about when it hit me... The blogs I really enjoy reading are the ones that just talk, the ones that just tell you what is going on in their life, their thoughts and feelings, and I thought lets give that a try...
Last week was a pretty busy week, Worked on Monday. I love going in to the office because I work with my great friend Beth, we have alot of fun together, but also work well with each other, the ideas are just bouncing all around when our creative juices start flowing! We work for The Hoosier Wall Bed Co. You remember the old Murphy Beds?? Well the wonderfully talented and super nice guys that we work for (hey you never know, they may read this, lol) have taken that old concept and kicked it up a notch, they are beautiful beds perfect for people who need more space, people who need to dual purpose a room, as a guest room or maybe a sewing room, or home office. With the big move of baby boomers downsizing and actually moving back to the city, our business is flourishing, we have even started installing them in Firehouses all over the country, go Firemen/women!!
Tuesday I worked at our local Food Pantry, if you havent given this a try I strongly suggest you do, it is such a great thing to do and you really get alot out of the experience, people are really desperate for food right now and thankfully we are able to help.
Wednesday it was back to the Pantry to stuff 158 back packs with school supplies, then off to Wal-Mart with a friend, in the rain, is this really July cause I am beginning to seriously doubt it, to pick up extra school supplies, and picnic food.
Thursday it was work time again with a long and productive 4 hour meeting!
Friday I sat with Sonny, my son's girlfriend while they had their moving sale, he had to work and he didnt want her home alone. They ended up making over $400 and now have alot less "stuff" to move to our house. They are actively looking for a house to buy, so they will be our guests for a little while. IT was also clean the house day, yuck, I would rather be at work, I have told my husband when the commission checks start pouring in...hopefully, the first thing I am doing is hiring someone to clean floors and bathrooms, and I am serious!!
Friday night we where off to our local Firemans Festival to support our brave volunteer men and women.
Saturday it was up with the roosters to go back to the Pantry, I am beginning to see why my husband thinks I may spend a little too much time there, lol, to load up the back packs and extra school supplies and picnic food for our 1st annual Back to School Picnic for the children of our patrons. 3 couples and myself, the hubs was busy hosted the picnic in between rain drops and lightening strikes to hand out back packs, school supplies, lunch, and a new pair of shoes to alot of children in need. The items were for the most part donated by people in our wonderfully generous community and thru a grant!!
Saturday night we were invited to my boss's house for his oldest son's high school graduation party. What fun, they live on alot of acres with beautiful views. His wife Teresa out did herself with a great spread of country food, the best mac and cheese I have ever had.
That is pretty much my week in review, hope you are still here and I didnt bore you to death, lol. I am off to start getting things ready for our big vacation, we leave on Saturday. Have a great week all, I will be by to see what you are all up too!! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a little comment! Sue
