Peach State says: Here We Go Again!

I hate to be the one to tell you but…It is Monday…and the weekend is over!
Here We Go Again!

Last night, while fast forwarding through the commercials, my hubby announced he needed to leave earlier for the Monday meeting. “Get me up about 6:00 and I will be able to take my shower about 6:35-6:40.” That is all well and good if he can actually follow the demands of the ticking clock. So far so good! He has roughly 10 minutes to get dressed and out the door! “MEN!”

We all have crazy schedules that drive us rapidly in many directions on Mondays. Everything is a blur as we continue to try and accomplish our preset duties for the day. Life thrusts it’s not-so-humorous interruptions into our day and we press on finally crawling into our safe haven and pulling the covers over our heads. Pain, fear, bickering, pure exhaustion…the interruptions are many but, we remain strong. “We are strong…because we get up the next morning and do it all over again!”

Do what you can to the best of your ability! That is all we can do!

So…put a smile on your face and I will put one on mine…face the new day!
Make it the best day…because you never know what tomorrow may bring.
Oh and by all means…finish that cup of coffee!
Have a great day!

Peach State says: The Monday Routine…Yuck!

20120827-070812.jpg
Here we are again! The day of the week that pulls you from the comfy-cozy-confines of peaceful slumber by your hair. “My inner voice screams when realizing the alarm clock has not even reached the predestined wake-up call.”

Not yet…just five more minutes…please! There is no reply as I rise and begin The Monday Routine…Yuck!

Fortunately I have friends who have left me some furry-funnies to give me an early morning smile!

What great friends I have! They share my deepest-darkest feelings…The Monday Routine…Yuck!

I NEED MORE COFFEE!

20120827-073627.jpg
That’s the way to start the day…
I will finally be able to use that insulated bag and keep the IV bags hot and ready. It may be a long day but I will get through it…like a heavily caffeinated trooper!

Now go…start your Monday, hopefully with a smile, and Have a great day!

Peach State says: OMG It’s Monday!

20120813-073546.jpg
It has come again…that dreaded day of the week. My friends have struggled to gain their footing this past weekend to no avail. Sleep deprivation occurs and the alarm begins it startling Zombie Wake-Up call. The dragging of feet and puffy eyes tell the tale. OMG It’s Monday!

Here is a sample of sentiments on the auspicious occasion:

Understanding is one thing…sharing the symptoms is another. “I guess it is a good thing we are close friends.”

This pic offers hope…hope for a nap sometime today!

I think sleeping in those huge curlers caused those baggy eyes and droopy face…not Monday!

20120813-075337.jpg
What a waste!

20120813-075831.jpg
Off we go…to face another Monday. Tip for the day: Hydrate!
You know what this means for me…right? COFFEE! Busy day ahead but I will not bore you with the details. I know your Monday is just filled to the brim with activity.
Have a great day!

Peach State says:Today is a Day Of Firsts!

20120507-065907.jpg
The day is as calm as it will get…the schedule for today is complex and filled with new endeavors.
Today is a Day of Firsts!

With it being a Monday I am up, as a friend call it, at the “butt-crack of dawn”. I begin my normal routine and know that several extra tasks have been added. My husband had several bad experiences with lunch last week and asked for items that he could take instead of eating out. So… am cutting up celery and carrots.

20120507-070556.jpg
After I fixed his breakfast and our lattes’ I set upon the task of chop…chop…chop! I also cut up some pineapple and strawberries. Hopefully he will not eat all of it and have some left for tomorrow. Yep…you guessed it…he is trying to diet!

He announced Saturday that he was going to quit smoking! “That’s wonderful!…when?”

20120507-071046.jpg
Monday!”
He bought the Nicorette Patches yesterday. Boy…Today is a Day of Firsts

My 19 year old went to work out early this morning and will come home and clean up only to return to the same gym…he starts teaching his first class, Self Defense and Boxing, today!
Early day for my 21 year old…instead of the 11:00 starting time he opens today.

And what will I be doing today…I am also experiencing a first today!
I will be going to Curves this morning…

20120507-071946.jpg
I need to get motivated and find some accountability!
I did try on a pair of my old pants yesterday and almost got them buttoned. “That’s better than the last time!”
When I finish at Curves I will run home (drive) and clean up before heading up to help a friend in her classroom. “It’s that time of year again…time for the sorting and reorganizing of games and books…time to pack her personal teaching aids…did I mention she is moving to a new school in the fall?”

“I better take some Tylenol and see if I can keep this migraine from starting! I am already feeling it in my neck and forehead…Not Good!”

After helping my friend for about three hours I will return home and…
NAP!
“I wish!” I will begin the everyday cleaning and preparation of dinner. “Mom’s job is never done…and if it is then no ones tells mom!” Fortunately I don’t have a whole lot to do on my daily chore list. “Now there is a First!

What is on your list of things to do today? You might be surprised and find that Today is a Day of Firsts for you as well! As for me…i will finish my latte and then go get ready…I will be leaving in about 35 minutes. Have a great day!

Peach State says: Where are the “Subtitles”?

20120416-064616.jpg

Can’t we skip this awful day known as Monday? I feel like I am living between the lines of a book of Murphy’s Laws! Everything that could possibly cause a problem has been squeezed into the first hour of my day….with the exceptions of my coffee! “My coffee is wonderfully warm and friendly and doesn’t make a sound!” The continuous stream of nonsensical mumblings and sound effects have begun early today! To make matters worse…it sounds like there is a group of people in the kitchen trying to redefine “Pi”! Help! “Where are the “Subtitles”?”

No lie…my youngest, who went to brush his teeth, just came downstairs and turned on the faucet at the kitchen sink and started to sing the Hallelujah Chorus! He was turning the water on and off as he said each syllable of the word. Once he finished at the sink he begins moving around the kitchen preparing the rest of his lunch. Anything that can make noise…does…as he begins the daily conversations with himself. I really cannot understand any of the sentences coming from his mouth. “Wait…nope the noisy ramblings and tapping have continued.” The topic has changed from scientific problem solving to fruit trees and blowing his stuffed morning nose. My mind does not function this fast and I have not had the chance to wake up properly this morning. Imaginary phrases put to song…well imaginary songs that he argues are real songs. “Funny…I thought I had a better understanding of music!”

A frightening raised tone interrupts the tonal tunes in the kitchen as he sees a spider on the floor. “Oh My God!…Is it alive…I don’t know…yep, it’s alive…gross…it’s crawling!” I told him to step on it! Now he is dancing…telling the spider how dead he is going to be. “At least I could understand that conversation!” Time to go to the bus stop…so with the garbage bag from the kitchen and his book bag he shuffles to the front door filling every tick of the clock with sound. The door opens and he begins wrestling his way out the door…the door closes! “Wait for it….Ahhh!” Silence! I watch him as he takes the garbage bag and waves it through the air like a flag in a battle. I then notice one of my sons left their car parked behind my husband’s car…”I wish I could send him a virtual text that would blink into his medicated dream state asking him to Pls mooove ur car!” I grab his keys off the counter and move his car.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a bold string of words appear to translate confusing babble into a language you can understand. Better yet…and explanation bubble could appear giving you insight to the mystifying actions and sound effects. I know his mind works at the pace of a Race Car flying around the curve to the finish line. He is going so fast that the answers I give him or comments I make cannot be heard. Maybe he is wondering the same thing…“Where Are the “Subtitles”?”

20120416-075048.jpg
It would look something like a comic strip wouldn’t it? I must now try to slow my mind down…Coffee…more coffee! Maybe I will check Facebook and see if any go my friends are up!

There is a down side to the “Subtitles” concept…if these wonderful little bubbles of translations appeared people would know what we were really thinking. “Ouch!” I hate to burst the proverbial bubble but that could cause a real sticky situation. So I guess it is back to the drawing board…maybe I should write a book…”Babble Translation for Dummies!” There is only one problem…I have to understand what my son is saying. Great! I am back to where I started!

Do you have those times when you cannot understand a thing coming out of someone’s mouth?
Do you ever wonder what someone is thinking? You are not alone! Thank you for understanding and allowing me to vent! Have a great day!

Peach State says: Here is My Facebook Funnies!

Here we are halfway through this week…I am ready for some humor! “Are you?”
These are collected from my Facebook and some were targeted to me and some …well they were just funny. Here is My Facebook Funnies!

Girl Scouts go door to door and outside the stores we frequent selling innocent cookies. We did not buy any this year! “I am so proud of myself!” But someone did…

While we are on the topic of eating…

Age has been targeted this week! “I am so glad that we are exempt from these conversations and jokes!”

My cat lover friends have been a bit preoccupied this past week! I guess it was a hard week!

I would just like to take a moment and wish them a better week!

20120328-073525.jpg
Well I tried!

As I close the Humor floodgates this week I have to warn you about the last humorous tidbit….okay you’ve been warned! Car commercials with the beautiful young girls flirtingly showing the details of the car…

A picture is worth a thousand words…and I just can’t seem to find the words to fit.

Have a great day…and send me those Facebook Funnies!
