Church and a Quick Trip Home

Well we went to church yesterday.  We took cheese and crackers and summer sausage slices.  All dishes were eaten clean with the exception of a few crackers.  There was a good spread yesterday!  

Our friends Kathy and Richard had an emergency in the family and had to leave.  Had me really worried, but I think everything will be fine.  Our class was talking on worrying when that happened during class and I began worrying again - not that you could do anything about it but I was hoping everything was fine and began visiting various scenarios of awful til finally we heard what was wrong and all looked like it would be fine as another family member had been ill suddenly but taken care of.  

So we came home and changed, took dogs out and George started watching the Titans game while I got ready to go. I was wondering if I'd be able to tear him away. But he listened in the car.  I drove b/c I like the way I drive in the rain.  The day before, George drove too fast for me in the rain.  He usually doesn't drive fast in the rain but for some reason he did Saturday and it hasn't rained in a while on oily pavement is not always a good thing.  So I drove to Columbia since he scared me the day before.  He drove back though.  It wasn't raining as much. ;-) 

So we arrived at 2:00 as promised and sat around and talked and watched Life Time channel, Mom's favorite channel.  

Here's Coco - my Aunt Martha's dog.  Isn't she sweet?  

I asked what our eating schedule was.  I wasn't sure if it was 5 or 7 or just whenever everyone got hungry.  I didn't know what the plan was.  So she called my sister since she was meeting us.  And Mom decided that we would eat right then.  So we left and went to the Mexican restaurant, El Fuentez.  Here is Uncle Ken and Aunt Martha.   We did not take the dogs this trip b/c we thought it would be too much to have 5 dogs in one room and leave them.  Maisy gets kinda picky and barks and sometimes does not get along with others well, so we decided if we were going out to leave them home.  It sure made the trip easier it seemed. 

And Mom.  I love all the fancy lighting at this place.  

I had them take our picture.  

Uncle Ken with Coco. 

All piled up in the living room.  

Uncle Ken was really explaining something below.  But I was taking a pic of Fancy, Mom's dog.  

We went home after stopping to taste craft Beer and Columbia's brewery, Asgard Brewery.  We have been wanting to try it.  So since we didn't have the doggies we decided it was a good time to try it. 

Aunt Martha bought some essential oils from me.  As did George yesterday.  lol He agreed to let me enroll him too.  I decided to order the complete Experience pak with the diffuser and all.  Aunt Martha bought that one too.  I'm excited!  

Here is Miss Maisy girl at bed time.  She loves me so and it struck me how lucky I am to have a doggie that thinks so much of me.  Lord knows it's hard to find people that do. 

Despite our busy-ness, I'm about to cycle again.  And I was able to get the Essential Oil pack with my bonuses so far.  At least I was able to get all set up this weekend.  Having the essential oil kit will help me to be able to sell it.  You can use some of it orally, some of it with the coconut oil carrier with your skin, and then diffuse it.  So I'm very excited to get mine in. 

Then on the way home friend Lisa J texted that they would not be going to NYKO in Phoenix in January.  I was crushed.  I'm undecided now about myself.  I just don't know.  I don't really want to go by myself.  We'll see.  It's such good information.  And I loved the experience last time.  I hate to miss it.  But we'll see.

Anyway, I didn't really get much of a chance to breathe and plan for the week on this busy weekend.  I didn't really get my day to get things done at home.   But, when we got home I vacuumed at least so I would not be in a bad mood this morning.  I didn't have time last weekend so I was determined.  I did more laundry this morning.

So it's cleanse day today!  Washing away the sins of the weekend.  I really wasn't too bad. I had a few cheats but the other meals of the day were low cal, and a bit of protein.  So I was held over good.

Ya'll have a fab Monday.  I'm going for more coffee.  Yes you can have coffee on a cleanse day.

Oh and we prayed for George's job situation in class, prompted by me.  George did not seem to think he needed prayer - well he said God already had it.  So I told them they could pray for me instead if he didn't need prayer - every one laughed.  See I can be funny when I want to be.  lol  Anyway on the way to Columbia an old friend/coworker from Gibson that works somewhere else now asked George if he would be willing to work for their company (to interview) but he'd have to travel to Minnesota once per month.  He'll check into today.  He would work from home the rest of the time.
It's a purchasing position.

Anyway, we'll see what happens with that.  He'll check into it.  The mine seems to not want to talk about bringing him on any more but they say they want to keep him as long as they can.  It's not really fair to him (nor us) to not allow him to have benefits and vacation time and holiday time.  We haven't had a vacation together in forever.  I know we'll get one at Thanksgiving.  And I'm probably just going to start planning one anyway for next year because at what point do you say enough of this temp stuff?   I'm ready to plan our life.  lol  We can't do anything for having to wait and see, wait and see, wait and see.

Anyway, I better get to my permanent job before I lose mine too.


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. It's always good to be with family especially the ones we don't get to see very often. It would be nice for George to be settled into a permanent position, but at least he has a job and that is something to be thankful for. Hope you have a wonderful Monday! Hard to believe this is the first week of fall. Summer went by with a flash.

  2. the pups were cute. dinner looked good. nice you were able to sell some essential oils to your aunt and george.
