yes, work is a blessing.. yes it is.. yes it is.. yes it is..

tree 
I wish I was a rich princess!  ok.. I would even settle for just rich, so I could stay home every day.  I know, I would probably get bored, but Id like the option to find out! lol!    or, I wish I only had to work three days a week. Yes, three days, I think I could handle that quite well!
Well, all that wishful thinking has never gotten me anywheres....  
so the reality is, I gotta go to work.. and I should count my blessings because I have a good job and other then the fact that I want to be home, I dont mind going to work...  (just trying to convince myself here...)
and today is a good day because it is FRIDAY!!!  
No plans for the weekend.. I will most likely be hiding out in my craft room and cleaning house.
Happy Friday girlie pies!

I worked for 30 years, retired and am certainly not bored:) One of these days you can spend all of your time doing whatever you want to do! Trust me, it is FUN! Have a blessed day dear Viv! HUGS!

I say the same thing every time I have to go to work!

Jacqueline said...

I wanna be just like you...
A rich princess!
Come on, come on, we'd not get bored
We'd have a craft room galore!
It is not shocking that the little girls in us want to always play...all day!

Hi Viv!
You inspired me to blog again. : ) I miss keeping in touch with everyone and hope to get it up and going again.
So, I blogged about our first snowfall.

Boy oh boy! I'd love to join you on that rich princess journey! But the truth IS, I'd love ONE ENTIRE MONTH to do ONLY the things I want to do at any given minute. It'll never happen. Still, like you, I am grateful for the clients whose needed editing pays my few bills and allows me to indulge in a skim milk cappuccino or two weekly at Barnes & Noble, plus my trips to Hobby Lobby & Michaels. LOVE YOU, VIVVY! Have a FUN weekend!

Terri said...

Your blog looks so pretty. Care to share where it came from? Glad your feeling better. Have a carefree weekend! Hugs, Terri

Hi Vivian, I know you are like me and would never get bored staying at home! I am soooooooo enjoying my early "retirement" My craft room calls to me every day! Enjoy your weekend, boy the flu still has a hold on me, I'll bet it's hanging around with you, too. Get some rest! E

Lynn said...

Hi Vivian,

HOpe you are feeling better!
Hugs,

I love being home full time! And although I *am* a princess, I'm not a rich one! :)

The only time I've become bored at home is when I've been sick or down with a hurt back. At first it's fun to have bunches of computer and TV/movie time but then... not so much! ♥

I with you, three days work sounds grand! Love the Valentine Tree! Happy Friday!

E said...

Me too ! I may never get to retire but blessed to have a great job (I get to work in flannel and slippers a few hrs a week) I cant complain but whew I love to dream about being able to craft and play at leisure ! I hope you feel better I am a month into flu or whatever this is, and still not back to usual (hesitate to say normal) Take care and enjoy the weekend will be in the 70s here in TN :) xo E

I love the idea of working 3 days a week. The weekend can't get here fast enough. My craft room misses me. Can't wait to see what you create this weekend! Happy Friday!

Debby said...

You, dear, wil never get bored. Hoping that you are feeling better. Your banner shelf is way too adorable.

Lori said...

I'm right there with you! I think even 4 days of work with 3 days off would be a lot more balanced. I don't think boredom would even be possible - we've got so many fun things to do!

Patti said...

Oh, I think of it...days off...sleeping in...crafting all day...But, the truth is, I would miss my little kinderkids. And, I get enough days off to keep me sane! I hear ya though!

NanaDiana said...

I am late getting here- I hear you- I hope you had a great day at work and will have an even better weekend - xo Diana

Tracy Cotton Pickin Cute said...

I just saw your CUTE pink hair! I love it - you are so adorable!!!

Fran said...

It does get boring at home alone sometimes :-) BUT being retired is fun so I can stay home and work in my studio. MMMMMM!! When my dear hubby doesn't have us going here and there. It's nice to travel BUT I'm really tried of it. Never thought I would say that but I am. I think it's because it's always when I'm trying to work on patterns, dolls, getting my Etsy Shop up and running,getting ready for a conference or when teaching at a conferenc or doll club. Sorry, I seem to be on a roll and couldn't stop. LOL
Hugs
Fran

I find myself unemployed again. It sucks in that there is not enough money to do anything that I would love to do, but I like being home. Kind of a catch-22!
I take care of one of my grandbabies, so my craft area doesn't get too much business from me, but I will try more this coming week because I vow to take hold of my time. LOL
take care!
