Friday: I Never Thought it Would Arrive This Week

April 1, 2011

in Song of the Week

This week I wrote about my thoughts on living a balanced life. I might be struggling, in a traditional sense to have balance, but I have had a great week.

Here are the highlights:

1) I completed a stressful, time-consuming, month-long work project.

2) I enjoyed having a mid-week dinner with a very special person in my life.

3) Monkey and I attended Opening Day for the Washington Nationals.

4) I was Featured Writer in the Studio30 Plus Magazine.

5) The kids and I had fun playing games and making dinners together a few nights this week.

Here are the other highlights:

1) Laundry is overflowing.

2) The fridge is bare.

3) The floors need vacuuming.

4) I am heading into the weekend with a cold.

As a result of all the work stress and my effort to keep some balance with the kids and in my own life, I have posted fewer times this week. Over the weekend I am resting up and recharging. Sunday will be another Naked Girl Wraps Up posting and then expect more from me next week.

Off to fold laundry…

For Song of the Week, enjoy the band Need to Breathe’s song, “Something Beautiful”:

Happy Friday!

Well, it sounds like you had a productive week anyway. Great! I also didn’t think Friday would ever get here.

Well I hope you also have a nice weekend. Sounds like a rough week for you as well.

I am so grateful today is Friday. My husband lets me sleep in a little on the weekends since he wakes early and can take care of the maniac. Ahhhh, finally!

I LOVE finding new tunes by a new band when I surf around blogs I like! I’ve never heard of these guys, but really like their sound. Heading over to youtube to see more of their stuff!
Thanks for posting this, NG!

Wow, I really liked the first part of the highlights a lot better than the second! Not to mention that the first group is really quite fabulous.

Feel better!!!!!

It was an interesting week. I was totally sleep-deprived most of this week, which is probably why I am sick now. It’s okay; I know I will be feeling better after a nice weekend!

What an appropriate song. Has a whole new meaning to me now. I have spent the entire weekend trying to catch up on the never ending laundry duties myself. However, I notice as my kids move out and my laundry chores decrease, I’d rather have them home doing more laundry again. Enjoy! :)

I am glad you enjoyed it Katie. We tackled “laundry mountain” last weekend and the three of us felt so good to have tackled it. It is great to start the week without feeling behind.
