Monday, my favorite day of the week?

Well yes.  I do love Mondays, as much as Saturday or Sunday?  When I worked at the credit union I lived for the federal holidays to come around, it was so nice to spend the day home alone without any care in the world...except when that holiday was also a day for the kids to be out of school or Stephen to be off work.  Don't read into that...I love my family, but I also enjoy time to do what I like to do with out having to listen to the girls fussing at each other or Stephen playing video games or watching some silly show on TV.  With this new job, well it's like I get a holiday weekend every single week.  YAY! working 4 days off 3 is by far the best shift I have ever worked  Now don't get me wrong.  I like my job, but who doesn't love weekends right?  I mean really...look at what I get to do all day...sleep in if I want, play on the computer with the house being completely quiet. (priceless by the way) I get to share my thoughts on this silly little blog that I have come to love.  and when I am done here I am going to be putting together my coupon binder so that when I go shopping for food and such I will be able to save money.  (wohoo saving money means having extra money to spend while on mini vacations during the summer when the girls are out of school)  anyway. I have lunch with different people almost every week, it's nice to be able to catch up, spending all day browsing the antique depot-my favorite place to go that takes me back in time.  I am pretty sure that yes Monday could be my most favorite day of the week.  what's yours?  Why?

pro·cras·ti·nate

To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness.  To postpone or delay needlessly.

Why? Why do we do this to our selves? I do it. Way too often.  For example: at work we each are assigned 3 units to detail each month.  Yes these trucks get cleaned and washed every 12 hour shift.  But to be sure they are really clean we detail them.  They give us the whole month to do this but me, well I always seem to wait to do mine until the very last few days of the month and then I am working like crazy to get them done(and yes I got them done for this month).  whew, Im tired just thinking about all that work.
So why is it I always put it off til the very last moment. There has to be some reason...but you know I would bet everyone I know does it. That's right even you :)
So what do I do to fix this? There are so many things in my life that need tending to, is it really that big a deal that I do this, it isn't hurting anyone is it? no of course not. (well except me when I have to rush to get stuff done) But hey thats when I get all my best stuff done...like that blanket that needs go be done for Steph oh and that sock monkey I am working on for Jason's birthday(which was Friday. oops...) or the...well as you can see my list of things to finish is longer than I want to think about today, maybe I will finish some of those things this weekend.  Or maybe next weekend...anyway.  I bring this up because it is one of the things about myself I would like to improve on.  This is something I can fix, with time and effort...maybe I'll start on that tomorrow  :)

Hurry home to post a blog entry

I think starting a blog has created a monster.  Yep all night at work I couldn't wait to get home(forgot my laptop) so that I could type something on my new and exciting blog.  But wait, what will I post about when I get there?  I didn't reallty think that far into it when I signed up for my very own site.  I want to do this every single free moment, does my family & friends really care what I ramble on about on some silly blog?  No not likely after all I did say in my first post that I wanted this blog to be a way for them to keep up with what was going on in our lives...and this really isn't our lives it is more like what is going on inside my head.  which can get pretty crazy sometimes.  anyway I was thinking all night "what ever could I post about...my crankyness at work tonight, well there is this...no that wont due. I don't want to think about it much less let someone read about it. Or what about my routine...when i get home i make sure the girls get on the bus...No not that either.  Oh how 'bout Mom and dad living here on my little farm (maybe another day) Well then how about birthdays...today is a friend of ours birthday. This has stirred something inside my heart and it is really bugging me... he isn't making a fuss about it and I get it some people don't.  BUT why not?  Birthdays are great it is your one day. one day a year that says this is the day God wanted me here and I am going to celebrate it to its fullest.  Still no matter how much I try to get people to see this there are still those out there that would rather just let their day go by unnoticed(Stephen too)   :(   I am the kind of girl who would totally get along with the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.  Celebrating even the "UNbirthday"  Not that I'm such a party girl or anything(Lord knows I don't have that kind of time) but come on it's your birthday for crying out loud, live it up and have a little fun for 1 day (and the other 364 days of the year you can go on doing whatever it is you want to do) Celebrate even if your scheduled to work, plan something...anything.
Well so you got a taste of the random stuff that hangs out in my head...Hope you can continue your day with out thinking I am a "special" kind of crazy. Have a great day, check back often to see what all pops into my head and onto a blog page.  ha ha I love writing for no reason. (bad punctuation and all)  Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY JASON!

just couldn't help but post again...

Well so much for a day at a time.  I just had to post once more today.  So I was hanging out on everyones favorite social site this morning and was excited to share this new blog idea with my close friends and family when while trying to send a message to one of my longest best friends I discovered that I had been deleted...thats right, as far as facebook was concerned we were no longer friends.  This kind of freaked me out.  what in the world was going on is this a facebook error or what?  I needed to get to the bottom of this and quick.  Well turns out that busy lives, jobs and family life (oh and not living in the same town) has really taken its toll on a friendship that was strained and I didn't even know it was happening.  So I think I did the right thing by just picking up the phone and doing my part to fix this infraction.  Im sure only time will tell if it is truly repaired. I love her like a sister but just like my husband and girls have pointed out in the past, all I do is work, work, work.  Well I have added a few things to my "work" list.  Friendship must be at the top of that list.  just under home life.  because just like a marriage a true friendship needs work and mainenance to keep it healthy.  I hope that she knows I love her, but that we are both grown ups with tons of other responsiblities and sometimes I may not always respond to FB posts or text messages(being nocturnal makes keeping up with the day walkers tough) but you all have my phone number  Im awake from 4pm til 8am tuesday  thru friday and then normal hours on the weekends and monday, feel free to call anytime.  I will do my part to not make you feel left out of my life.  for now I gotta go to work :)  lovin this crazy ride I call my life.  have a good night all.

Lets see how this works for me. lol

So as everyone who knows me knows that I am way busy what seems like all the time.  I never really take time to visit with my friends and family like I should.  I have a good friend that started her own blog( her's has purpose and reason)  mine,  not so much.  I just like to share whats going on in life.  Now what Im not going to do is go into all the details (married w daughters...) Im thinking my family and friends already know this information :)   that is the plan anyway.  It's a new year. so its time for a new tammy right.  I have lots of things going on right now, a few are working at EMSA.  It is a pretty great job with lots of room for improving myself.  with that said I did just fail my NREMT(test to be an EMT) which sucks, but in 15 more days I will test again and maybe then I can pass.  keep your fingers crossed.  I love the cold weather, but cant wait for some super nice weather on the weekends because my girls(britt mostly-val not so much) and I really enjoy going geocaching.  "What is that?" you ask well it is simply high tech scavenger hunting.  I love it because it gets us out of the house together, britt loves it because she can hunt for treasure and maybe find some history while she's at it.  Well I have just used up too much of your important time so I will sign off for now.  Work nights at EMSA so I really should be getting myself to sleep so I can do amazing things when I wake up.  Ok amazing may be a stretch but hey a girl can dream right :-)  oh one more thing, don't try correcting the typos and spelling errors, I just worked a 12hr shift and I am getting sleepy.  I will try to do better with that in the future.  hahaha this was kinda fun and a little relaxing.  everyone needs some of that right.  Good night.
