Almost Normal

After being sick for almost two weeks I am finally beginning to feel better. I was feeling so tired at work Friday I can't even describe it. It must've been all the sleepless nights due to the coughing. I go into my sewing room and mark about six rows of stars for quilting and then I just have to stop. I will try again today so I can put the quilt on the frame and do some serious quilting on the four day weekend I will be having at the end of the month. I can't wait. My son Chris is enjoying his college and just informed me that the country he might have to go to to study abroad will be either Jordan or Costa Rica. The minute he said Jordan I felt panic go through my body. He is young and adventureous would love to go to Jordan. He was chosen to sit at a round table discussion with the President of Costa Rica next week so he is excited about that. He told me about all the school/community clubs he has joined and all the studing he has to do and I am convinced all that is for the young. I can't even remember everything we talked about. My youngest who is a very calm music loving 18 year old just thinks his brother has some weird plan to conquer the world. My son is California is still working at a T.V station and still in no hurry to marry or have kids. He doesn't have time for a family, so he says. Slacker girl, at work, didn't go to work for four days. She said it was due to having some kind of sore on her stomach and the doctor told her not to get near anything hot, so she was again at the register when she was suppose to serve this week. She sure didn't act like someone who was in pain since she even danced to a song on the radio. I have to say I out smarted all of the younger workers Friday. We are all suppose to throw out a bag or two of trash and while they were all chatting by the register I quickly got two of the lightest almost empty bags of trash and threw them away. By the time they got back to throwing their share they got stuck with the heavy bags. I wanted to laughed so bad. I just told them I've done all I have to do so I'm clocking out. Bye. You should've seen their faces. LOL! I was ready to quit Friday with my being sick and feeling tired. I hope next week is better for me. I am having a hard time coping with my going to work now that I'm almost 50. I'm still trying to figure out where would be the best place to work. If I last all year in that cafeteria it'll be a miracle. I have lost 5 pounds since I started working there.
