How Do They Do It

I try to read a lot of the local blogs on a daily basis. Some have had no new posts for months and several have multiple posts daily. Guess my interests aren't broad enough, my brain not fast enough and the body just plain too worn out! I don't know how the regular bloggers can do it!

My days are pretty much the same. Off to work early in the morning (if 7:30 is early), lunch at the desk and heading home by around 5:30 (if I am lucky). Saturday work is only from about 8 AM til 12:30 PM. The rest of the day is mine!!! Sometime before dark, I try to get the "litter picking" completed around my block. Nighttime is spent reading blogs, listening to the TV, checking the PJ Star website and chatting on line - sounds facinating, doesn't it?!

Sunday is up for grabs! Sunday Morning news programs, a few (ha-ha) computer games, maybe a little house cleaning and laundry (reality sets in), an occasional nap, more reading and chatting and a lot of doing nothing that I can remember on Monday morning. This past Sunday, I visited my son, daughter-in-law, and Grandbaby (she is almost 2 years old). That meant a trip to Oreana and taking them to brunch at Home Town. Good to see them. I don't make the trip often enough. Great little family and I'm very proud of all three of them!

This evening's highlight was a phone conversation with my daughter who recently moved to the Detroit area from Santa Barbara. The trips to visit her in Santa Barbara were great. Not necessarily looking forward to short vacations in Detroit. Love seeing her (and her significant other), but sure don't see Detroit as being a vacation destination! She started a new job today. Has to make a living while trying to make a life as a musician. Has her first paying gig this weekend, so I guess it is working.

Have the chicken in the slow cooker. It will become the BBQ that will serve as the evening meal each day until it is all gone. Do not like to cook and try to limit the activity to once a week. I am also very grateful to paper plates, as doing dishes is not a favorite activity either. With 10:30 PM rapidly approaching, the final ritual begins. Make a fresh pot of coffee for the thermos, put the dogs in the garage for the night, sit on the porch for a few minutes and head for bed. Usually asleep by the time Nightline is over. Tomorrow will be pretty much the same as today - but for some reason, it is not dull or boring. I like my job, I like my home and I like my life. Contentment is a blessing! Feeling very content tonight.
