So Bad I Forgot to Title the Post!

Dirty Pepper


You ever feel like you dig and dig but still don't get anywhere? That's what I'm feelin' right now. And this time change isn't helpin'!

The husband and I both work "real" jobs. Hardly see each other during the week. On the weekends, we would like to rest but have chores to do around the place.

This weekend it was still too muddy to do much. We did put out hay. The husband took me muddin' in an open cab tractor (not on purpose). Somehow, I was the one with mud all over her back and hair! Oh yea, I was sittin' over the back wheel.

Plus I'm gettin' ready for an arts and craft show. Trying to get things put together and created. I'm nervous. Scared of failure! Yikes, now y'all know!

And I got a photography job to take pictures of three BBQ restaurants (all at least over 2 hours away). Spoke to the general manager today and got his ideas. Have to start that in a couple weeks.

Husband wants to wean and buck calves next weekend.

Need to clean the house for visitors over Thanksgiving.

Oh yea, suppose to be training for a 5K that I signed up for on the 21st. Hmmm, hadn't run in three weeks. Just hadn't seemed that important in the grand scheme of things. Was more interested in coming home to the dogs in the evenings.

Excuse me, Harley needs out.....

Diesel thought he needed in!

I'm tired, going to bed!

I have EXACTLY the same problem...I just posted a list of all the shit I did this weekend. And really it was not one of the bad weekends.

This working for a living, but still trying to live, can be hard on a girl, huh?

Hey I agree BREATH! And let the housework go til later....it will still be there or be there again! I always think about how "real work" just gets in the way! Pepper, dirty dog! Cute and having fun!

Oh Girl! Try doing all of that with two kids and NO hubby!
I am so happy that you are getting work doing what you love- photographing stuff! I know that the pics will be fab-u-loso!
And do not worry about the craft fair- you will not fail. The only failure would be not to try!
Get some rest and remember that you are terriffic!

Hell's Bells girl. You need a vacation from your life! You sound as busy as we are about to be- though I'm out for the count right now. More to come on that later.

Failure would be NOT trying. You'll be fine!

oh,my! I thought I was busy, you sure have me beat! I know how you feel, the hubby is gone all week and I also work during the week and the weekends are the time that we do all the work on the farm! Like my barn!!! Hope you can get some rest in between!

Paula said...

Balance and juggle! You will be fine. Give that silly dog a bath! That will be the funnest of all the to-do's!

It all seems to happen at once doesn't it? Take a moment to surface and grab a deep breath. Before you know it, you will have it all under control again.

Oh busy days too much left to do at the end of the day and now with the time change here it is impossible to get riding and basic chores done...I feel your pain! Good luck with it all.

Mikey said...

Congrats on the photo jobs, that's awesome! Sounds like you've got a lot going on, but that's always good!!! Is good to be busy!
