Not bad for a fat girl

Under the Wire, Again


I have had the most wonderful week off. I’m lucky to live in a place where other people travel for spring break.  We had gorgeous weather all week, and I got a lot of chores done. It was a good week.

2013-02-19-back-to-workNow it’s Sunday evening, and I’m procrastinating again. I have work to do and yet, here I am blogging instead. Why? I don’t know. I was going to get it all done at the beginning of break, but that didn’t happen. Now not only do I have work to do, but I have to remember my train of thought before I begin. Who knows what I was thinking a week ago? Certainly not me!

What will get me going? A timer? A reward? A swift kick in the rear? Nope, none of those. The only thing getting me moving is the knowledge that there are people relying on me. They did their parts (they always do) and now I need to do mine.

I guess vacation is over. It makes me a little sad, but I do look forward to seeing my little urchins tomorrow. Fourth quarter, here we come.

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the grown up son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.

  1. As a parent, I too am looking forward to the 4th quarter. Get ‘er done!!!! I’m counting the days. LOL!

  2. I save all the yucky stuff for the end of my time off too. For example – it took me ALL DAY to organize my closet after two years of meaning to get to it. I did however get to pour over old photos. Head’s up, there’s a Liebster Award heading your way! http://whyistherebreadinmykoolaid.wordpress.com/2014/03/17/hooray-for-me-a-liebster-award/
