Odds and Ends

I got a lovely thank you note from my boss at work today along with a $50.00 Walmart gift card.  The Note said:

thank you note


Thank you so much for everything you do for our program and the people we support.  You are an amazing person and we are all so lucky that you are on our team.

It is nice to know I am appreciated at work.


Today at work, a co-worker who rarely talks to me came in and started telling co worker talk me all her problems.  It was weird and random and I wasn’t sure what to think about it.  She was complaining about her mother and ended up with “We can’t all have have mothers who are as good as you are.”  I am not sure why the whole exchange made me feel uncomfortable but it did.

I think it’s nice that she thinks I am a good mom but she really doesn’t know what kind of mom I am or the struggles I have at home and I wasn’t sure if she expected me to respond a certain way.

I am just not comfortable with people who don’t know me well, unloading everything on me or complimenting me on things they don’t  know or understand about me.




My daughter is in California on a Band/Choir tour.  I miss her but I know she is having a blast at Disney Land with her friends.  It’s been a long time since I have been to Disneyland and I wish I could have been able to afford to go as a chaperon.  I hope she is enjoying herself.








Tonight was date night and my husband and I went and saw a movie.  It was nice getting out and doing something with him.


I am grateful that I am married to my best friend.  I know that is a cliche but in my case it really is true.  He is the best thing that ever happened to me and I love him so much.  The movie was good, the company was excellent and the night turned out to be a successful date night.

I have been struggling a bit this week with sadness.  I haven’t really crashed or anything but I have felt overwhelmed and anxious at times.  I think I am handling it okay but It is still hard to feel this way.

I am not sure why I struggle with this from time to time or what makes me feel this way but it’s hard to go through and I don’t feel like anyone truly understands it.

I just know that when it comes to my moods what goes down must come up and this to shall pass.  I always know there are better days ahead and that’s what keeps me going through the hard times.


goodnight and sweet dreams

  1. You, too are my best friend. I am glad that the movie and the company you kept were good. I wish we could go on a date every night, but the kids would complain, etc.
    – I am glad that you are my eternal companion and hope that you can continue to work around my short comings.
    I love you
