First Blog

Hello and welcome to my blog, Just Right, By Jamie Reed!

As I mentioned in the "Our Story" tab this blog is an outlet for me to discuss my goals and ambitions, as well as my day to day life! The idea for Just Right, By Jamie Reed came to me when I realized that I want to use my strengths and degree to promote businesses, causes and people. I started with a company name, and as a numbers nerd I loved that both "Just Right" and "Jamie Reed" have nine letters, it appeases my OCD side. Now, the plan is to use this blog to help me focus in on what it is I want to do and how to turn my business into a reality. But, that's just it, maybe my business will be this blog. Who know's but whatever it comes to I am sure it will be "Just Right" in some way or another!

So, I guess I'll just jump right in. My day today started out with a bang, I actually was able to sleep for a long period of time! A rarity sense Tim and I work opposite shifts. It's quite frustrating to love someone so much and to just want to spend time with them and to only get a few minutes every day to see them. As it is I get up and leave for work at 6 A.M. and get home at 4:30 P.M. In the mean time Tim goes to work at 2:30 P.M. and gets home at 11:30 P.M., as you can see we just miss each other. But, today is Saturday, so I was able to sleep in and wake up next to my husband and wait for him to wake up to spend a few hour together. Unfortunately, this is a Saturday that he has to work, but we try to find the positive in every situation and today it is that he gets paid time and a half on Saturdays!

I made it a point to go to the grocery store last night to avoid having to spend any time apart today. With a stocked pantry we had a large choice for breakfast, we settled on french toast!

After breakfast, we watched a few movies on TV together, one of which is a favorite of mine and my mom's, Overboard! Come to find out Tim actually really likes that movie as well.

I make it a point to have dinners made for Tim to take with him to work. I feel it is my job as a wife to make sure that he eats well. I plan a main meal, today was one of his favorites, chicken and dumplings, a few snacks (fruits, veggi's, cheese sticks) and a few drinks. Fortunately for me he is willing to always eat what I have planned for him. He says he is the fortunate one and that the guys he works with are always jealous of his meals! I'm glad, could you imagine how much it would cost for him to go out to dinner every night!

So off he went, despite the fact that I told him I would prefer if he stayed. He is such a good guy, always so willing to head off to work to provide for us.

Now what to do with the rest of my day. Well first and foremost I wanted to get this blog up and running. Next, a bit of organizing, I need to write a few letters and clean. The best part about living in a one bedroom apartment (for the time being) is that it only takes about an hour to clean. I almost forgot, I also need to make my way back to the store. Try as I might to only go to the store once a week it seems as though that's near impossible, especially when two stores are out of the face wash that Tim uses!

I do believe that is the extent of my day!

Thank you all for reading, and I hope you have enjoyed my first blog. Please feel free to leave comments!
