Ten on Tuesday

1.  Why is it so difficult to find a nice blouse for summer that is not a cotton t-shirt?  I love cotton t-shirts as much as the next girl, but I want nicer things to wear to work.

2.  It is unseasonably hot here.  The humidity is high and we are running about 10-15 degrees higher than normal right now, without the heat index.  I don't enjoy sweating.

3.  I'm starting a book club with my niece and nephews.  I hope they get joy out of it like I know I will.  :)

4.  Do you want to know what's great about early morning budget meetings?  Nothing.  Absolutely nothing.

5. Today is Garfield's 40th Birthday!!  I love Garfield.

6.  I ordered July stickers for my planner on June 8.  They still haven't shipped yet.  For all those with Etsy shops that sell planner stickers, please ship your products faster.  I ordered these early in June with the hopes that I would be able to get my July month set up before July actually arrived.

7.  I want a new purse.

8.  After months of talking about it, I finally made my tracking/goal poster for my MK business.  This is important for me to be able to track my activity and really get a good idea about the work I'm actually putting in.

9.  We are six months into the year, and I am not doing very well on my goals for 2018.  The only good thing I can say is that I have made progress on the crochet blanket, although it's still not halfway finished.

10.  It's 10 am and I just realized I have not had coffee yet.  Yikes!

Weekend Recap...

Friday:  My plan was to leave work early on Friday.  Meaning, I wanted to leave by noon.  However, nothing went according to plan, so I did not leave until 1 hour before my normal time.  Boo.  I went home to help my mom who is recovering from surgery.  It's been unusually hot lately, so we chilled inside watching good TV.

Saturday:  I had two facials at the MK Studio in the morning which went really well.  After that, I went to Barnes and Noble to get books for my niece and nephew.  I'm starting a book club with them.  I ended up spending almost an hour in that store because I couldn't decide if my nephew was old enough to read the Chronicles of Narnia.  I can't wait for him to read those books.  We may need to wait a year though.  I did some cleaning in the afternoon and chilled for the rest of the night.

Sunday:  After taking Dad out for Father's Day, I did some more cleaning and then did nothing for the rest of the day.  Seriously, I watched a movie and some Full House.  I don't feel too bad though because I did get two spaces cleaned.  Just one more to go.

Not a very exciting weekend, but a good one.

Weekend Recap...

As I began to write this post, I could not remember what I did on Friday after I got off work.  Then, I remembered it probably wasn't anything really important because I don't usually do anything on Friday nights.  Those are my nights to recover from the work week.  I do know that I watched a movie, and that was about the extent of my Friday night. 

On Saturday, I slept in, had multiple cups of coffee on the patio while listening to the birds and enjoying the great breeze we had until it started to get hot.  I worked on my crochet project too.  I'm not halfway through with it yet and I made a countdown on my phone to constantly remind me of how many days I have left before the September 30 date I set for my goal to finish.  As of today, I have 111 days left.  I need to average at least 2-3 rows a day, every single day.  I have a very bad habit of not picking it up for a whole week.

The rest of the weekend was spent running errands and doing some to-do list items around the house.  It wasn't a very exciting weekend, but it was good for me.  Relaxing and productive.  You can't go wrong with that.

I'm Still Here


It's been a very long time.  I know.  I'm sorry.  The month of May is always consumed by a certain event at work, which leaves me incredibly exhausted and unable to focus on anything else.  I have a friend who helps with this event and I know she reads this blog sometimes so I would like to say to Miss E, thanks for all you do.  I don't know how you manage that month, but I admire you.  :)

Now.  I must confess something.  There have been many times when I have considered deleting my blog completely.  I know that at the beginning of the year, I listed a blog makeover as one of my goals for 2018.  I've thought of many different ideas for my blog; different post ideas, possibly doing videos, completely redesigning the layout/colors, etc.  Some days I'm super excited and ready to tackle the makeover.  Then there are days where I know I haven't posted in a while and what I have on my mind is not worthy enough to be written down and posted.  So I don't post.

I'm going to give this some more time while I figure out what I want to do and what the future of this blog will be.  Any input you would like to provide would be appreciated.

It appears that I need to get my time management under control.  My business has also suffered.  Plus, there have been a lot chaos at work. 

It's time to deal with some stuff.  Let's see what the next couple of months holds for Life With Attitude.

Ten on Tuesday

1.  I've been doing some thinking.  I ask that if you are reading this post, please leave a comment.  This will help.  Thanks!

2.  It's so nice to have sunlight coming through my bedroom window in the morning now.

3.  Wednesday April 25 is Administrative Professional's Day.  Please be kind to the admins.  A card would be nice.

4.  Listening to 90s Pop Radio while at work makes the work day a lot more tolerable.  :)

5.  It appears that Spring has finally arrived here.  At least for this week.

6.  It is hard for me to believe that today is only Tuesday.  The first two days of this week have been long.

7.  Have you visited Introvert Doodles yet?  I love this site!

8.  My Melody is getting groomed on Wednesday and I cannot tell you how much she needs it.  I feel like a terrible dog mom that we've gone this long between appointments.

9.  What's the next book on your reading list?

10.  There is a car alarm going off outside my window.  That's a little annoying.
