 FRIDAY NIGHT WITH NO GRANDKIDS! Or KIDS for that matter! The girls are with their grandparents and Cheyenne isn't spending the night tonight like she usually does on Fridays, because I don't need to babysit in the morning. Clay and Teeg will be here tomorrow evening and all night so I'm getting in some peace and quiet and some me time! Jamie's out doing his UBER driving haha, so its just me. He and I just got back from the SweetCorn Festival. Anyone who knows me at all knows I HATE crowds with a passion and have even been known to get panicky so I am always glad to get home from these kinds of things. I can handle it for short times and that's about it. I am the a true introvert for sure. I don't like or need to be in the midst of a lot of people or activities- ever. It's hard for me to understand people who love being in the middle of big groups of people and activities, parties, any of that. I am the most comfortable and at peace when I am at home in my own surroundings with as few people around as possible. I absolutely love the grandkids and love spending time with them but I absolutely have to have time for just me, totally alone, in my own home. Jamie often doesn't understand this. He says he does but so clearly he doesn't. Often, his response when I have said I want to be alone is to tell me to get out and go somewhere alone. Now, a fellow introvert would know that true necessary alone time would consist of being at home alone, no one else in the house, not even on another floor "leaving me alone"... I am only alone if NO ONE ELSE is in the house LOL!! It's a difficult thing to explain to people so I really don't try much anymore. I just try and enjoy it to the fullest when I do have it. I often feel I wasn't really meant to have a family. Which is just so weird because I have always wanted kids and I sure have my share of them! You can't have kids AND get what you need the majority of the time as an introvert. Just doesn't work. But I have learned to savor what time I do get for myself. It's just never enough!

  Well I am so lame that it's Friday night, 11pm and I am going to bed. I can't even describe the exhaustion I have felt the last week or two. Don't know what's causing it. I'm usually full of energy but lately I just feel the need to take a lot of naps, never have a lot of energy no matter how much caffeine and just don't feel like myself. Every day I hope to sleep it off but apparently it's here to stay a while, so my bed and I have become close friends! Night all!

Typical Saturday

It's 9:30 a.m on a Saturday and I am showered, dressed and have coffee made! Oh and I just managed to eat breakfast. All with an 8 mo old granddaughter in toe! (Cheyenne) . She's my sidekick these days. I have her overnight most Friday nights as mom and dad both work early on Saturdays. If left with no grandkids I'll easily sleep until this time if not later but when I know a grandchild is in the house, it's like my brain doesn't ever shut off, so sleeping in doesn't happen if they do sleep late, which surprisingly she did today.

 Today's a typical Saturday. Not a lot going on other than watching grandkids. Teegan and Clay will be coming over later in the day while mom and dad go to a wedding and reception so I'll have them overnight. Teegan, just two mos old, hasn't mastered sleeping through the night and has to be waken at 4am anyway for meds, so I know I won't be well rested when I have them. Clayton is an early riser and always has been. It's so nice now though that he's older and more independent. He gets up and watches tv and plays except that he, for some reason we haven't figured out  yet, feels the need to come all the way downstairs to use the bathroom instead of using his right by his room upstairs. I think he just needs to have that contact with us haha.

 Well time to get Chey cleaned up from breakfast and figure out what to get done today! Til next time!

 Another busy day in the Wilske household. Always is busy but some days more than others. Today is actually a day "off" for me, at least as far as me cleaning myself. I have two people (employees) doing three jobs for me today and one of those ladies has done a job every day this week for me and two today. I'm enjoying hiring out as well as doing some cleaning on my own. For one thing of course it's extra income for me without doing all of the actual cleaning and I've always dreamed of getting bigger. Now I'm working on getting my name out there even more. It's not without headaches and stress though, but it usually works out fine. You can't please everyone though and I have found that some people just aren't going to be happy no matter how hard we try, so I do my best but I am not going to stress too much over people I can't please. All I can do is my best, and make sure the people working for me are doing well too. I have a couple of really nice and hard working ladies right now who do a great job.

 On a more personal level, I've been staying busy with the grandkids and love it. Teegan and Clay have been over a lot this week, as has Cheyenne. We don't get to spend a lot of time with Brittany's kids, Jason and Jennifer, as they live about 40 minutes from us and they're not in CU all the time. But we do spend time with them too when we can.
  Teegan is two mos old now and has "come alive" more this week. He's doing great. Holding his head up better, looking around, more interested in his surroundings and even smiling a little. It's so wonderful to see him blossoming after all he went through. Love that little guy!

 The girls leave for the weekend tonight. I have Cheyenne (9mos old) this evening but after that we may get out and go do something. Drive in movie perhaps. We'll see. Til next time.....
