What time is it?

Last Update: September 28, 2016

My goodness did I get busy. When finances become a real issue, a decision must be made in order to meet obligations! I did not want to make this decision even though I realized that it must be made. So make it I did by the grace of God.

I took a part time position with a business I know very well as I have assisted in their record keeping for more than 20 years. Not many companies want to take on a 71 year old woman to do manual labor. Because I am well known by the owners of this company, they hired me for their Christmas rush. I am so very grateful to them.

Now, since I am not use to a lot of physical labor, and I am 71 years old, there is a time of transition from desk work to manual labor. I see it as being very good for me as the more I move, the healthier I am. It gives me a chance to speak to the benefits of a healthy diet which is always beneficial to everyone concerned.

The real challenge is finding the time to work on my website. I know this will be a work in progress! I work from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm and when I get home, I am beat. So I have to work on the website in the morning and there are mornings I have other obligations or I am just tired.

I am keeping a pad on my desk to make notes on articles I read and a list of "things to do" on the website. Any other suggestions will be most welcome!

Thank you WA family,

Barb

Hi Barbara, I suggest you take thing easy so as not to be exhausted both physically and mentally. Suggest do you posting or website in the morning when you are fresh mentally. After work at night, you should get plenty of rest. Early in the morning keep the posting to not more than 45 minutes. On occasion when you are exhausted the day before, give yourself a clean break meaning no postings in the morning. I think the priority should be on your part time work. Well take care and be in good health always. [Kelsey]

With me being a Ravens fan. When they ask me what time is it, I say "game time".

Good luck Barb! Just keep going and spend as much time as you can. Even 30 minutes every other day will get you there in the end.

Good advice LindaRiel. I sometimes want to eat the elephant in one sitting! Thanks for reminding me to take one bite at a time.
