Woke up today in a tired "fog" after yesterday's election day marathon.

Took care of all my inside and outside furbabies at breakfast time.

Made breakfast for Buck and me. Buck went off to the shop.

Felt as though I was walking through molasses I was so tired from yesterday.

Tidied up around the house, litter box, dust bunnies (it's shedding season now), put out unperishable ingredients for tonight's dinner.

Got things in order for tomorrow's normal laundry/cleaning day.

Buck came home at 1 p.m. and we drove out to mechanic's garage to get "my" car that had been there for a week.

Came home and made lunch for the two of us.

After lunch I went up to my office to pretty much veg I was so tired. I surprised myself and wrote one full column and the better part of a second one. Did outlines for 3 more. I guess my mind was still working.

Fed outside kitties supper and here we sit on our porch, drinking an adult beverage and enjoying the evening.

Will make dinner in a few and then fall, face first, into bed. The day after, the day after is always the worst. I'll sleep like a corpse tonight.

well, it seems in my next life I will think twice about buying a house on so much land and being the primary caretaker of it......
I have 4 outdoor projects to finish, so I've been neglecting the indoors. So now the entire place looks like a bomb hit it.
You name it, I really need to do it between today and tomorrow, because I have a sneaking suspicion that Memorial Day will be celebrated at my house on Sunday when I get home from work, and it won't be decided until Saturday.
Ha, they THINK I'll be suprised but I'm prepared this time!!!!!

Try to do everything I couldn't yesterday because of my pain flare (which is still going on).

Thanks PD, I am just trying to find the balance of doing too much or too little. I guess that is another item for my schedule.

Laurie I hope you feel better soon. I'd love to be able to help!

I forgot about Jake's baseball practice tonight, so I have to add making dinner at like 3pm to get him there with a full belly by 5. sheesh.
I think I'll bake some cookies with the little 2, poor things keep getting shoved aside so I can work on one of my 6,000 things.

Laurie, I hope you are feeling better and that you have had a chance to rest with your feet up. My dad used to laugh and tell me that every time I did something, I went at it "like I was killing snakes." Sounds like you do the same. I know that's the nature of your business, but you do work so fast and furiously sometimes!

My day started out planning a little dinner party for tonight. Seared some salmon for caesar salad and put it in the fridge to cool. Grated some parmesan. Made croutons for the salad. Baked an apple tart. Noticed a peculiar smell. ALL of our floor drains were backing up...oh yuk. We have a septic tank - it seems to be fine, but we apparently have a blockage somewhere under the house. Called a plumber (it is 4:30 and he still hasn't arrived). Called dinner guests and cancelled. Hubby and I will have a swell dinner. But we may have to use the neighbor's bathroom!

Thanks Suzi and Karen. I was "grounded" by DH today so he is shopping by himself. Of course in the last hour I have had about a dozen calls from him . He says it is getting the shopping experience without the pain of walking through Costco! He is also making supper tonight as well.

So my schedule today is basically
rest
nap
rest
answer the phone
rest
eat supper
rest
got to bed

You are right, Karen, I am not used to that pace, but I know it is probably for the best.
