Java With Jo

Oh I am so glad that it is Friday!  This has been one busy week and although the weekend is still looking busy I do have some fun things planned.  Tonight my husband and I are going to go out for dinner and then we bowl on the Friday Night Mixed Couple League.  That should make for a fun evening.  Tomorrow I don't have a lot planned as I have to work at the video store in the evening.  But Sunday we are planning our annual Christmas shopping trip to Duluth.  Even though our kids are in college now and we definitely don't buy as many presents for them as we used to, we still enjoy some Holiday shopping and just spending some fun time together.

It feels like I've been barely able to stay afloat with all of the events taking place right now.  I am also feeling some major job dissatisfaction (from my day job that is) and that is emotionally draining me.  I'm just wishing that God would make it more visible to me as to what it is that he wants me to do, because I really don't think that he wants me to feel like this every day.  I don't mean to be such a bummer but this has been heavy on my heart lately.

I'm also very excited to get my package ready to send out for the Book Blogger Holiday Swap.  I will definitely be looking for some fun items to include in there while I am out shopping this weekend.  I just love everything about the Christmas season, especially the music, which I have been listening to for the last month! 

Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget to check out the giveaways that I have on my sidebar right now!

Jo- I can relate to your feeling on wishing God would make things plainer to see. I often think the same - is this what he wants for me - especially after Buddy. I hope things become clearer for you soon.

I hope you have a nice dinner with your husband tonight and enjoy your bowling and shopping. I'm steering clear of the malls here. lol.

I'm sure you'll figure things out soon.

Sorry to hear that JoJo, you may need to do a daily happiness journal. I have a stressful job and sometimes it seems nothing is getting done until I write down the simple things and tick off the list.

Thinking of you.

Please don't let your job get to you. Think of your family and they will bring you to a happy place. Hope you bowled well and had a great dinner and time with the husband. Laughter and fun makes everything better.

And as far as the hustle and bustle, do what you can and don't get sucked in to the madness. Do what makes you happy.
