Just a quick c.i. to say hello. I didn't even turn the computer on yesterday, so I need to cuop. I hope all is well with everyone --- thinking of Dee and dh today also!

Spent most of yesterday doing some extra cleaning to get ready for dgd-H's visit. Got a text from her today saying they would be leaving this evening between 9 and 10 p.m.; we expect them to be here between 1 and 2 p.m. All the heavy work is done, just need some dusting, etc. and keeping the kitchen clean to be ready. I hope their drive is good, looks like there might be some rain along the coast.

Dh and I made a quick run to W-M this morning for some extra groceries. Dson#2 stopped by yesterday and mowed the yard; I didn't know he was coming, so it was a nice quick visit with him.

Lunch break is over; I need to check on dh and let dMinnie out for a few minutes. It is too hot to let her stay more than five or ten minutes.

Got a query revised, but it is taking far too long. Maybe I will try running it in SQL rather than SSRS.

I think Someone may be trying to tell me Something. One morning last week, I woke up wondering what my goals in life should be and now it shows up in the village. Or maybe others are on the same wavelength? Or maybe the upcoming dinner with the xBFF is making me feel like I have to justify my choices. But how many of them were my choices and how many did I just default into?

Enough funk. Time to plan something fun. Um ... I do have a vacation next week, I think I can fit some in. This afternoon, I will plan my evening post-dinner. I will plan a fun thing and a useful thing. Why wait until vacation?

Deep thinking today. I'm not sure I think that much about things any more. It is enough to get through each day as it comes.

That was interesting to realize. I do admire several Biblical people and Jesus especially. I don't have any long term goals any more I don't think except to just get through these last working months. Man, makes me think I'm a very dull person these days. I better think about that.

Most of the day so far just doing paperwork. 1 out of 2 done and I've made big progress on the draw request. I have had a long conference with DH over that request and we filled the dining room table with papers. I'm going to do some more work on that. Will be nice to have it done. Now it's just the neatening it up and printing and getting it ready to send off. Our customers also have to sign this thing.

Off I go :arrow:

My true self is not my ego, that is my idea of self, though it said a truly humble person can get closer to knowing /accepting their true self.
My true self is who G*d can see, …. without all the fluff and nonsense.
from my old MH support group - your true self is your happy self.

My guess this morning is I need to appreciate that I do have a true self, even if in my human self it seems a bit battered, and I often need to reset the steering of my life, With G*d's help, even if I don't know all the ins and outs of my true self.
The finding and being words - I think I imagined needing to do those, and the card was about appreciating your true self.

Today I need to switch off the computer and move away from it.
Just begin.
Living this day, today
Take a reality check; Remember to breathe; Do what I am able to do.
Look for the good in all.

I'm so happy for her, blessed.

Elizabeth, I didn't see your question until now. prime just means that for a flat fee, you get free, often 2-day, shipping from A-river for the next year. It is helpful to my daughter more than me, because with her large, young family and work schedule, in-person shopping is a challenge. There are a few other benefits, but I haven't used any, really. She may. The "day" just means they have a sale and discounts.

Just hung a second laundry load to drip-dry. If I do this often enough, I'll whittle down my small loads.

My true self is who God can see.
— That is a wonderful thought, Lynlee. I am thinking yes, of course He sees all our faults and failures, but He also sees all our potential and what we WANT to be, and He loves us so much through it all.
That is very comforting.

L o n g night. After the ballgame, ds wanted to come watch the MLB all-star game with dh and the dgrands were sooo wound up... running and screaming and just wild. Game wasn’t over till 11:00 pm...
We’re getting up at 7:00 for a day trip to Shiloh battlefield tomorrow. At least ds will be along to help with the driving. Whew.
Tomorrow is another day.
