I sat here and made quite a nice entry when I got home from work. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, it disappeared into cyberspace.
First, the reason I haven't posted in a couple of days: My morning routine has changed somewhat. I'm doing my daily Bible reading, and taking time to ponder and pray a bit. Also, I'm trying to unclutter my life, with the help of Flylady. If you're interested, click here. One of my readers pointed me toward Flylady some time back, but I just recently checked it out. I'm taking baby steps, like the boss says, but I've made an improvement or two. At least my kitchen sink is clean and shiny! I do have a problem with her telling me I have to have shoes on before I do any housework: I don't normally wear shoes unless I leave our 43 acres. And I'd like to explain to her what hard water deposit does to porcelain and other kitchen and bathroom fixtures, and see what she says. I haven't been following her instructions to the letter every day, but I hope to get more in the groove of this during the next four days, since I won't be going to work.
Next week I'm scheduled to work forty hours. Now, I haven't worked more than three days in a week since returning to work from my medical leave, so I'm really hoping they offer a voluntary-time-off one or two of those days. Their fiscal year starts February 1, and at that time I intend to go part-time. It won't affect my hourly wage or benefits, since I don't carry their insurance. I'll still be able to contribute to my 401K as usual. I'm very thankful I have this option.
Hopefully there's a waffle iron in my future; I ordered one at WalMart.com. It would be fantastic if it would arrive tomorrow, so I could have waffles Saturday morning!
We have another horse coming to live here this weekend, if all works out. I'll have the story about that, with pictures, once he arrives.
