Weekend Coffee Share; Crazy Week, Busy, Busy!

I can’t wait to share a cup of coffee or tea as we catch up! I think either one will go great with the left over cake we have and it tastes wonderful! Yes, another birthday in the house. It was my youngest sons birthday on Nov. 2nd. I can’t believe how busy it’s been here with one birthday leading into the next and while all this is going on, I am trying to train my employees as I get ready to move on from one job to another. I know when I stated above crazy week, it was one of the craziest for me since add to all the pressure of quitting one job, to start a new one, add elections and all the other things life throws at you that can make you feel crazy! I am glad this week is over. Can I get you another piece of cake and refill that coffee?

I have to say that because of this crazy, busy, busy week I have fallen way behind reading all the blogs I follow. I know, no apologies needed as they are all just waiting for me to read and catch up on. Now that I think about it, it just may take me a few days to go back and get to everyone. I keep forgetting I do not need to head to bed early because I worked my last night shift last night!! WOW! Pinch me! I can’t believe it!! Maybe I will get to all the blog posts sooner than later! But I digress from birthday celebrations as I’d like to share a few more photos. ๐Ÿ˜€

I can go through this last year with a laundry list of craziness. For the world, a pandemic that is still here and praying for all. Then I go and decide to move my horses from one barn to another only to be unhappy enough to move back. Wait what? The horses are settling in back at the old/new barn, just had to say that to keep things as confusing as possible! I’m being silly, but its true I am all over the map. The horses recognize they are back to their original barn where they have been living for at least the last five years. I am so proud of them as they settle into their new barn stalls (because I’ve lost their old stalls, they were rented out) and since it is almost winter here I am really appreciating the warmth these stalls will provide. It’s all good, but crazy days all around for my horses and my girlfriends horse Gracie!

I decided to buy Zack and Chloe new halters and lead ropes. It has been years since I have bought new ones and I thought how fun to get these new barn stalls with new halters and leads! I went with red for Chloe and a dark blue for Zack. You can see these halters on them in the photos above. I am feeding them horse treats!

Zack’s photo is rather funky as the angle makes his head look big, but I still wanted to share! Haha, but this is the barn stall where he lives. I am very thankful the barn employees take Zack and Chloe out and put them together in a small pasture while they clean the stalls. It is a free turn out, I am so appreciative! Since I can breath a sigh of relief with the move of my horses, I am breathing another breath of stress. As I am sitting here writing this, my shoulders are killing me! Oh the stress! I need to let it ALL GO!!

The stress was from this job I just left. It is not an easy thing to leave a job that you have worked at for 20 years!! Oh my, it was so incredibly hard to say goodbye and since the managers said I am welcome back any time to visit (and they said they would welcome me back to work there if I so choose to go back) it made the departure a little bit easier knowing I could visit. I hate goodbyes, I am more a “see you later” type of gal and I plan on eventually making some visits.

How is your coffee or tea? do you need a refill? I know I do as I’m a bit sleepy after my night shift.

In my quest of this most crazy year, moving horses and lastly finding a new job, it is my hope that I can visit more often these sweet grand children! Isn’t she just so beautiful? but then I am prejudice. My weekends going forward will be free, something that I have not experienced in 20 years. I can’t wait to visit both my grand daughter and my grand son often. I’ll close with his cute photo!

Thanks for visiting and listening to my rambling craziness. Now that I’ve completed this last week, I know things will settle down. I just walked away from a very stressful job, that I loved and worked so hard at and I am leaving with the door open to return some day if I so choose. I am hoping the new job is all that I envision so there won’t be any changing jobs again. I also think they are in shock, as they did not see this coming and quite frankly I think I am in shock too. I can’t believe I will be working day shift starting tomorrow!

Crazy, super busy Grandma,

    1. AWW, thank you B!! It feels like I’m at a training class this first week working days. So it’s going to take a few weeks to really feel the amazing affects of sleeping at night!! And Yes, I’ve been taking a lot of breathes, saying you can do this and saying normalcy is around the corner!
      You are so sweet, those kids are adorable haha!! I think so too!
      Have a wonderful week too! โค๏ธ

  4. Hi Diana, I think most of us had a crazy week, but that you added a job change and a birthday party makes my think you may be a tad suicidal. Our week was relatively quiet at work, but we were still stressed over the state of our world.

    On the other hand, new jobs can be so refreshing. All the stuff you left at the previous job is gone from your calendar and a new work life of new faces, new challenges, new things to learn and accomplish — I’m so envious and wish you a wonderful success with this new effort.

    Now about those extra cute grandkids. . . wow. . . word just fall me. You are sooo very blessed.

    1. Aww, thanks so much Gary as those grandkids just are so adorable and melt my heart. They are just as cute and fun in person!! You are right, I feel blessed and don’t want to take anything for granted! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

      And as I read your opening paragraph I had to giggle because honestly, I was and have been thinking what the heck am I doing? Being suicidal feels like what I’m trying to do is exactly that, just CRAZY!! And to have this all happened last week no less!

      But to move on to your next paragraph, you describe exactly what I walked away from, and am hoping to look forward too… New challenges and accomplishments. I just need to give this some time as it’s been difficult to not want to run back to what I had and know, it’s time to make this change!! Thank you so much for all your wonderful, encouraging words full of wisdom and support! ๐Ÿ˜€โค๏ธ
