by PierreBear » Mar 20, 2018 Thanks for the good lucks etc regarding culinary class. Turns out no quiz yesterday and it has been postponed. I was ok with it though part of me thought it would have just been nice to get it over with. Today I found out that my coworker will be out of office for the rest of the week. I was hoping it was vacation but one of her family members passed away and she’s making a trip to Florida. Lots of tragedy in her family life right now if ya’ll could please be spending dust/prayers her way. Anyhow, a somber note to end on but hope everyone has a great day. @missy – Adorable Riley… I often too think that cat’s have a wonderful life. Sweet boy to show his tummy to you. @Austina – I’m glad you like this Texas weather. The 20 degree swings are pretty drastic to me. I usually dress for the high point of the day and scurry into the office in the morning as quickly as I can from car to building. Oh I didn’t know you were looking at homes. What style are you interested in? Over here it can range from ranch style to mid century to modern to Spanish villa… etc. Hope you saw something that peaked your interest. @marcy – I think the way your mind works might be similar to mind. Some things I can’t help thinking about. It’s not like I can tell my brain “ok stop! It’s sleep time… the better you sleep the more chance you have at being productive tomorrow.” I’ve learned though that if I get home late at night because of work or cooking school, I need to give myself 15 minutes to do something different such as reading a book or watching tv… something that will take my full attention. Staying up later for that 15 minutes will allow my subconscious to not wake me up in the middle of the night and think about what I was working on the night before. Not sure if you’ve tried that just wanted to share what tools have helped me. Must be nice to be young and not have to work out! Yum to Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. The new flavor sounds delicious. Funny you ask about the rings as DH forgot to put up the ring as he is traveling this week and packing Sunday night and probably didn’t get to it. It’s sitting in the jewelry box and I’ve only looked at it and worn it at home but not out and about. I’m actually waiting for the appraisal documents so as it’s not insured yet, it’s another reason why I’ll be patient and wait for next year. @Scandinavian – Can’t wait for pictures!
