Some Much To Do So Little Time!

I am in one of those times in life where I am doing a lot of things but feel like I am getting very little done. If you have been following Mountain Highs and Valley Lows would a while you know about the Visa process, my online store and I also work a full time job. I guess they have been the topics I have talked the most about lately on the Blog. I do have other things going on in my life that I do not share about here that much. Here lately it seems like everything is happening all at once at times.

This summer, I got to work a lot of overtime at work. I thank God for the extra money that provided. It has helped with the Money needed in the Visa process and I have been able to help some family and friends with the money. It looks like the overtime is slowing down know. Which is normal for this time of year add we have a full crew at work with everyone back from help at one of the other warehouses in the company.

I hope to focus in getting more books listed online too. This summer, I feel like I have been too tired to do any thing or sick on my days off. I still have about 90 boxes of books in my house to go through and list online. I have been doing good with my sales and enjoy reading the great feedback I have gotten from my customers.

I have been helping my mom out a lot this year. Since she wreaked her car last year, I have been taking she to work and some days picking her up from work and bring her back home. My oldest sister was helping for a little bit but, she is off trying to get things straighten out in her life right now. I love my family but it is amazing the person you love do cause the most stress in your life. Mom wants to get a new car if she can get the money saved up for one. We have been working on getting her health insurance. We have an appointment Monday afternoon to sign up for insurance that covers the things Medicare does not cover. It is a lot of information to go over and so little time to focus on it. I am glad my family has a trusted family we can go to for advice on insurance.

While we are waiting on the approval of Jo Anne's Visa. Jo Anne and I have been talking about our plans for when she gets here. I am starting to work on finding a better place to live then the place I live now. It is an okay place to live but it is getting to the point it not going to fill the needs of Jo Anne and me.

I have managed to take a little time to do some work around the house for myself in the past two weeks. I still need to take a day to do a full cleaning on the yard. I hope I can get to doing it before my vacation in November. I am also overdue for a haircut. Every time I plan to call my friend who does my hair, I get busy doing something else that comes up. Once I get an appointment setup getting a haircut will not be a problem. I do have a thing about who I let cut my hair.

When I do sit down and think about things, I am doing a lot and getting a lot done. I just have a lot going on right now and that is the reason I feel I am not getting much done. the list seems to be getting longer then shorter.

Mom's Surprise Party

This past week was just what I needed. I got some time to rest and relax. I got a little something for myself too.

Saturday, I enjoyed my morning talked with my Love, Jo Anne. It has been stressing being away from her lately with her being sick. I hate not being able to take care of her when she is sick. We are hoping to get the approval this month. It sucks having issues to work out with the government, especially when it should not be as big of an issues as the government is making it. We have no doubt we will work it all out and be together soon.

After talking with Jo Anne, I headed to the Henderson County Friends of the Library Book Sale on the other side of town. This was the first weekend and I normally get books for my personal library on this weekend but I did not see any books on my must have list. I have not decided if I will buy some books this year for my online store or not. I still have a ton of books I need to get working on listing.

I finished my Saturday by heading up to the discount shoe store in Asheville, North Carolina. I wanted to get a new pair of mocs. The pair I liked my most did not feel comfortable when I tried them on and walked around a little. I looked around some more and decided on another pair I liked and try them and and loved how they felt as I walked around. These were the first shoes I got for myself other then work shoes in five years. I also looked at the work shoes there too. I need to get a new pair of work shoes too. I want to look around a little more on them.

Sunday, I woke to go to church but fell back asleep before get up. I hate missing church. My week seems to go better when I start it by going to church. When I did get up, I helped my sister to prepare everything for the picnic her and my aunt planned as a surprise birthday party for my mom. My sister left to head out to Mills River to get setup and meet my aunt and uncle, while I picked up my mom and my friend, Seth. When I was growing up, we would go out to Mills River several times a year. It has been a long time since we have gone out there as a family. My niece and nephews enjoy themselves while we were there. My dog, Rayna, got in the water with no problem. I wish I could take her out more. She stay with us the whole time and not run off. While I was cooking she lay down and waited for me to finish.



After we eat and played in the water, we headed before to my mom's house and had the cake. Mom enjoyed her surprise party and seeing her sister.
