Yay for Friday and being present

The older I get the more I realize just how quickly time passes. I just said to my coworker who graciously picks me up each morning until our car is fixed, that "Didn't this weekend just blow by? It's already Monday". And here we are facing another weekend. If you measure time by weeks it is easy to see just how short life is. How living in the NOW is so important, especially to someone like me who relives the past and dreams about the future. I am trying to learn to focus on the now. Be present and accountable. I have a tendancy to realize just how great something is after it has happened. Doesn't make for such a great lifestyle. So I am becoming more aware of today, its sights, smells and sounds. I am also attempting to put a more positive spin on things such as if its a rainy cold drizzly kinda day, its no longer a yucky day but rather a perfect day to stay in and cook, or curl up with a cup of tea and read a good book. Even if I have to trudge through it to get to work.

So bringing me back to today. I LOVE Fridays. It's always been my favorite day of the week. The last day of school and now work, anticipation of the weekend and now the day of my alltime favorite TV show Ghost Whisperer. Mom and I watch it then we call each other (she's in Canada) and discuss exactly what just took place. Tonight is the season finale! Poor hubby, I get off at 8pm, he picks me up, race home and I dont speak to him until after the show is over. Yes, I love it that much. ;)

I just received my first paycheck! Woohoo for a second income!! I am planning to pay bills then do a little shopping. I'm thinking of hitting up these two places and then go rummage saleling...(is that even a word?)

Do you have a Christmas Tree Shop where you are? It's amazing! Very good finds on lots of different things. I bought a great little light there for $3.95 once. I think its in one of my first posts.
What are your weekend plans?

  1. Weekend plans- tomorrow we are going to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg. It's one of our most favorite places, we love coasters. Sunday is supposed to be rainy so I will take it easy and putter around. Oh, and today I am going shopping on the way home. Target, Kohl's and a few other places.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Christmas shop out least not that I have heard of. I have been to one in Connecticut and I loved it! Enjoy!!
