Really glad it's Friday. It was a tough week...I'm beaten down.

Jack has his last basketball game tomorrow. In between Nick and Kyle's bball...two more weekends for them. It will be nice to get a break from sports for a bit. Though soccer starts up...but I'm hoping games don't start for awhile. And we gotta get Jack signed up for baseball or he'll freak. Sounds like another full summer of kids' sports.

I hope to finish my bible verses this weekend -- and do/finish my recipe swap and finish up the ornament album. I HOPE. And if I'm really rockin' - finish the LOVE CB album. It would be great to check those all off my scrap "to do" list. It would be nice if the house were completely clean and in order ... so we didn't have to do any house stuff...and just enjoy the weekend. But cleaning up after boys is like shoveling in a snow storm.

I'm thinking a lot about one of my co-workers...who left suddenly yesterday because her mom didn't show up somewhere and wasn't answering her cell...and people were concerned. She found her mother had unexpectedly passed away. I'm very sad for her. She's in my thoughts and prayers big time. It's more sad because she always talked about her mom - funny stories -- and it was part of who she was...so those of us who know her -- who may have never met her mom -- still have a little connection through all the stories. So so sad.

Oh .. I have to go into work Sunday. It's for a good reason and it's important ... but darn. When you've had the week I've had at work .... you really want to be completely AWAY from it for a couple days. And I was on call last weekend. But, it's sweeps, and you gotta do what you gotta do.


The Five:
1. Headache
2. Dirty (I need a shower.)
3. Dreading work
4. A little, tiny "blink" of relief/happy since it's Friday
5. Beaten down.

Five wishes for today:
1. No confrontations.
2. To get Praise
3. To get an apology (it'll never happen)
4. Easy news day...not a NON-news day...but nothing crazy-ass that keeps me at work late.
5. No one ruins Survivor for me...since I didn't see it.

TGIF folks. TGIF.

Sorry about your coworker's mom. Reading your post made me sad for her too.

Sounds like you're rolling with the scrapping these days. Good for you!

Hey - check out my blog. Consider yourself tagged. (You're it!)

Now, off to read more of your blog (it's been awhile since I last visited) to figure out what THE FIVE is.

Your writing is so smooth and descriptive. I love your sense of humor.

I am thinking about your coworker and what she must be going through right now. I can't imagaine.

I hope you get a bit of a breather, and that you get everything done you're hoping to (though that sounds like a bit of an oxymoron if you think about it....)

I need to get my Bible Verse swaps done this weekend, too--so, hopefully I can follow your lead.
