"Just about the time a woman thinks her work is done, she becomes a grandmother." Edward H. Dreschnack
|Love this fun Coldwater Creek bangle!|
As a teacher, blogger, writer, wife, and mother….I obviously don’t mind work….but this new grandmother title, has me just a little overwhelmed at the moment. It is always so wonderful to have a couple of days at the hospital where all you do is push a button and here comes the Calvary…nurses to take care of every question and need.
|Chic Short Sleeved Coat : My first purchase in the spring|
line fills a need in my wardrobe for a classic warmer weather,
Going home is the tough part…because Grandma’s cell phone becomes the new button. I am still in the early stages of how all of this will be handled…but, with a smile on my face, I will handle it!! We have so many reasons to be blessed…besides the obvious, our precious grandson. We are thrilled they live literally five minutes away and we can get to them very quickly if needed. We all work nearby and anything we need is close to us. So, honestly, I have nothing to complain about except a little fatigue.
|Knit Denim Bootcut Jeans: I was really in need of a new|
pair of work appropriate jeans...these are the most comfortable
jeans I have ever worn...I do not want to take the off! I am considering
a pair in white!!
Psst...I know I look a bit frazzled here...it was that kind of week!!
Pictures today, show you exactly what I purchased at my last trip to Coldwater Creek. I decided to go with a couple of classic pieces to enhance my wardrobe. Pieces I knew I would use over and over again. Please know that if I had the extra money at the time…those navy polka dot ankle jeans, the orange color block jacket, and the dotted cherry shell…would be mine today!! (And may eventually!!)
I hope all of you have entered the two giveaways I have going right now…winners will be chosen this week, so just click on these links:
I want to thank all of you who sent such sweet emails, comments, and tweets of congrats....you are just the best friends a girl could have....
Now, YOU have a glorious Monday….I must go ATTEMPT to plan out my week!
The “living-like-you-feel-40” Tip of the Day: Be flexible. When your schedule becomes overwhelming, take “peace time”….a moment to sit quietly every day…to close your eyes, be quiet, and reflect on what can change in your schedule to remove some anxiety….maybe even treat yourself to a massage or facial!
