Day 6

Worked on a family goal today. Today felt better, picked up my grandson Carter who is 5, took him shopping for cowboy boots, ended up with suspenders, jacket, cowboy hat and i will upload a pick for everyone to see how cute he is! He looked so handsome and even posed for me. I think i will attempt to pick up a grandchild every weekend and take them out, weather it be to play a game at grannies or eat, or shop depending on what else i need to do. Ideas are certainly welcome.
Had a very busy day at work and glad it's over, tomorrow off, and work on Sunday. Hoping to spend some time with my daughter on Sunday and go to the movies and see Dear John. We both read the book and enjoyed it I sure hope the movie is as good. Maybe I can invite my mother.

Tired.. ... until .......we meet again

Day 5

Not much new today. I had a busy day at work and am finding it difficult to be the grandmother I would like to be because of my schedule. I think it is very difficult to be a full time working grandmother/mother. This is not something I had to experience before, when the kids where all home and growing up I was a stay at home mom  other than going to college for 9 years. It was a difficult task with so many kids but I ended up graduating with honors. Something I am very proud of. In my job now I work in Detroit, while families of Juvenile offenders. I am helping the families and the youth to change so when they return to their homes it can be a life lasting change and they will not end up in prison. It can be very hard for them and a lot of them feel they are destined to prison life.
Well enough about my job, back to me, today I did real good on the swearing goal, feeling quite lost on my family goals, and feel very loved by hubby, he brought me home a new briefcase for my job, and believe it or not it helps me to feel professional!. LOL
Thanks for the tips on craigslist I found several baby beds. My grand daughter Angel is 14months old, not quite walking yet, I hear. I am very excited to see her have not been able to even hold her yet and anxiously await news from Texas, nope nothing yet....
Anyone have any good ideas to help me balance a schedule, and have more time for my grandchildren and children and parents? if so HELP
I feel like I am sinking!

until we meet again.........
