The Best Laid Plans

“Today, on my lunch break I looked over my schedule for the week and tried to plan projects to work on accordingly.  The best laid plans however are often changed. I suspect I will be working extra late tomorrow night as they have announced  lunch and dinner will be brought in.  So I will have to be flexible but hope that tomorrow is the only day I may have to work extra late.”

You’ve just read what  I wrote on my lunch break.  Guess what?

Tonight was an extra late night too.

The crazy thing is I couldn’t do anything more than what I did earlier in the day because information was not in our new operating system.  So there I sat thinking to myself “I could be working on my son’s quilt instead of sitting here”.  It felt like a waste of my time.  But if they want to pay me for it, so be it…probably  the easiest money I ever made.  🙂

Tomorrow will be a different story altogether as today’s transactions will be in the system.  It will be a very busy day and I will need every moment I can get to get my job done.

This afternoon we were given inspirational cards… I used them as wall art for my cubicle.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
