Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!

Thank goodness this week is FINALLY over!! It seems like it just dragged on forever. I don't think I can remember ever being so thankful for Friday to get here!!!
It started with Sunday..the day I always prepare the girls homework. I bought a membership at a edhelper.com. I went a little print-happy and the girls walked away with almost a book of homework. If you homeschool, this website is WONDERFUL!! What usually takes me about three hours to do (their homework schedule) took me 8 hours!! That's right .... 8 hours!!! I was EXHAUSTED!!!!
Then this week was just super busy, helping the girls with their homework, finding Sierra's required reading, groceries and more groceries, then back for the one or two things I keep forgetting. Misplaced the keys more times than I would like to admit.
Luigi fell in love and he's keeping us ALL awake. His whining/crying/calling...whatever it is still hasn't stopped. We had super heavy rains and found out our back door is leaking...thanks to Luigi.
Work has been non-stop. Thank the Lord I am part-time at 32 hours weekly. The FT employees put in 50 hrs this week. But it's still stressful none-the-less. Everyones negative attitudes can definately damper your spirits even when you're trying to be cheerful or at least optimistic!
Wednesday I had two appointments after my work with Emil's company. So even though I was off at 12 I didn't make it home until almost 6!
I woke up early Thursday so I could take my time driving in the rain. Since I had just washed my hair and had to dry it I thought I'd go ahead and put some products in it and style it somewhat. Well, smart April was in such a rush that I pulled a back muscle and have been in pretty much pain ever since then. I slept on the heating pad last night and pumping myself with Motrin is all that helps. I don't want to go to the doctor because I don't want muscle relaxers. I'd rather stretch it out. And after all that..... the rain made my hair fall anyway. HA!
So now Friday is here. I came home to a nice sized hairball on my bedroom floor and another on my side of the bed. Thank you Charlie. I love you too baby!
Tomorrow I am supposed to go to a karaoke party. Only because I have to bring the karaoke machine. I don't think my back will feel good enough for me to go. Sunday is another birthday party. Plus about four loads of laundry, mopping, cooking.... oh goodness!
There is absolutely NOTHING a good cup of coffee can't fix. I am going to get me one now. I will sit here and do nothing except look at all the wonderful entries on Kelly's Show Us Your Life Fall Decorations (only to remind myself of all the things I could have decorated but didn't) and also Cindy's Show and Tell because everyone's things on there are just so pretty and I really enjoy looking at each and every post!
So, there was my week and I guess my weekend in a nutshell...or a blog post. How has your week been? Anything planned for the weekend? And...if you're reading this... what is your favorite way to have your coffee? I'm just curious.

Just stumbled onto your blog, love the title! And I like a little coffee with my creamer. :)

Whew! I'm tired just reading about your busy week. I am so happy that my kids are now adults & that they can take care of themselves and do their own laundry. I just cook dinner. It's all I can do to work all day, come home, cook dinner. And then I sit in front of the TV all night. My weekends are busy running errands, decorating & laundry. And I don't drink coffee, so I don't like it in anyway shape or form. I don't even like the smell of coffee. Sorry.

A Little Of This And That

I'm so glad you stopped by my site, else I may never have found you in blogland. Love your blog. You sound like one very busy lady. I'm a Houstonian, but hubby and I love San Antonio, and go there several times throughout the year.

How do I like my coffee? Black, mostly. Occasionally, in the evenings, I'll have it with some flavored creamer like hazelnut, but black is my preferred method.

I'm adding you to my blog roll. :)

thanks for your comment on my blog, it's a pity that the cat pendant wasn't for you ! Maybe another time !

Hi!
Sue popping in from the UK. Thanks for your kind comments on my tree skirt! Yes, you must do one yourself.
I'm not into coffee to be honest, British cup of tea is just fine for me. Pouring of rain here, proper Autumy day.
Bye for a bit.

Hi :)
I got the sunburst mirror at Pier 1 about 2 years ago! I know Target and Ballard Designs sometimes have something similar :) thanks for stopping by!

Hello April...

Ohh my goodness, Girl...I'm just tired from reading how busy your week was! I just know that you are ecstatic about the weekend being here! Yes...I remember having weeks like this when my three daughters were still at home and I was trying to homeschool plus juggle a church ministry on top of it all! I wonder how I did it all! I'm retired now and an empty-nester...my days are basically pretty quiet!

Well my friend, hope you get some rest this weekend...enjoy! Want to thank you for coming by and taking a peek at my stackable pedistal plates...really enjoyed your sweet note! By the way...I love all of your beautiful autumn decor...you did GOOD, my friend!!!

Have a wonderful and restful weekend!
