That is me this week and actually trying to get this post to work! This is my third attempt. I thought this composition journal page suited the way I feel! I'm just about to finish up my first stretch of 7 days to work. Yay, I've almost made it! It has been pretty busy most of the week, but, hopefully, all weeks won't be that way and also as I get a routine at work of what I need to do and when, it will be better. I can see now where some prep work at home the week I'm off will be essential, like making sure groceries are bought, housework done, etc. My dh is not the best to help in those departments, despite almost 28 years of my trying to improve him! We were camping the days before I worked this time, so I came into this week woefully unprepared at home. I've made it fairly well, except for the discombobulation, that is! I've felt goofier than usual, having to really concentrate to make sure I'm doing my work accurately. Physically, my old bones have been a little achy at times. But, I'm about to be off for 7 glorious days!

I'm posting from work on my break, so I'm not able to post what I really want to, which is to show you all the lovely goodies I got from Kim's blog giveaway. The boxes, yes, 2 of them, came yesterday, but I've been home only long enough to sleep since then, so no time to take a good picture and get on my computer at home. Suffice it to say, for now, that she was so generous and that I was totally thrilled with what she sent. In additon the the items that she pictured, there were also some beautiful surprises that I can't wait to share. Maybe later today after a nap!

I sure can relate to your discombobulation. I feel like I live that way constantly. I have been doing a little more art every spare moment that I have which isn't much. Some journal pages and some jewelry and sewing.
I am going to be sending you a package as soon as I can get it finished. You were one of the winners of my buggy contest! Rest up Jilly and enjoy your week off.

YAY!!!! You're almost done!! According to my clock here at is 8:25...and you should be finishing up right about now. I hope you made it okay through your last night of this work week! I prayed for you...

Love you,

This is a fabulous page, and boy, can I relate to "find your focus." I have a terrible time doing that. Life would probably be easier if I didn't enjoy so many things -- but perhaps less fun and diverse!
