Hi ya’ll, here it is Friday and I have been away. I can’t believe how quickly the weeks pass by. In a earlier post I commented on struggling the last several weeks. I am happy to report that I feel like I am on the road to recovery. Sometimes it feels like when it rains it pours and that was definitely the case for me. Anyway, this has been a very active week for me.
As some of you back in the fall I became a homemaker again after years of working full time. Anyhow, it has been a experience trying to get unemployment started, etc. I mean I have never drawn unemployment before. So that has been a eye opener because everything is done online. I remember back in the day when you had to go to a office to apply. On Wednesday I had a workshop that I had to attend in order for my benefits to remain. The workshop was extremely informative. Things sure have come along way.
For the most part this week has been working on finalizing the last minute touches to my son’s rehearsal dinner. I think I am almost there. I can’t believe how much work it is to organize and plan one of these events. But we had what I hope is our final pow wow last night…Earlier in the week my son and I met with the establishments owner to go over food choices and head count. We finally got our price from them just for me to call them back this morning to make modifications. I am sure they are going to love me when this is all over.
So needless to say, I haven’t had alot of free time to be on the computer or reading blogs….however I did find myself back at Jill’s site, if you are a organized person, she has some of the most awesome creative projects for you to try. Several others caught my eye weeks ago, and I am including some of the information to my “to make” folder. Do ya’ll have one of those? Seems my folder keeps getting bigger and bigger and I am not getting anything accomplished.
Check out her Menu planning of the month. Or her managing her blog notebook. But I have to say that this might be one of my favorites, her recipe cards and binder cover. She has the most adorable recipe cards ever and if I had cards like that to look at, I might want to cook more than I do. :)
But I am giving you fair warning…don’t go over there unless you have oodles of time to waste. She pulls you in with all her clever organizing tips and how to’s. Be forewarned!
